So I went through my iPod trying to find the my favorite albums. To narrow down the list and to organize it mathematically, I created a formula for my picks:

(Number of Tracks On Album ÷ Number of Tracks I Truly Love) + (Total Plays of All Album Tracks ÷ How Many Months Album Has Been on My iPod) + (1 For Each Song That Appears on My 100 Most Played Tracks List)

I've included each album's score, though without the figures, it may be useless outside of organization. I've also include the one track that you should have from each album if you can only have one track.
