If this gets replies, I will make a list on it!

By all-time favourite I mean the one that you would not only take it to your grave but would put it in each and every grave in the cemetery that you would be buried in, so they can enjoy is as well!

What's yours?

After the Gold Rush - Neil Young

An album that I grew up with and is still one of my favorites.

No-one else?

Mine is The Doors by The Doors - Their debut!

OK, I admit, I'm a late-comer to admire the brilliancy of Jim Morrison and the The Doors as a whole. How can this album be disliked? It's the most powerful, almost perfect album ever. Each and every song is a total winner and 4 made my greatest songs list.

I consider The End to be one of the most powerful, grabbing songs ever written and the other 3 main highlights are Light My Fire, Break on Through and Take It As It Comes

Almost all songs inspired me to write my own!

Pet Sounds is completely excellent. The music, the singing, the songwriting, and the production is flawless to me. Brian Wilson took the Wall of Sound technique to incredible places. Alongside it's technical brilliance, Pet Sounds is a pretty emotional listening experience.

That is a very difficult question. I guess I will have to go with Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by the Smashing Pumpkins. The gods themselves had a hand in recording that album.

John Coltrane & Johnny Hartman's self-titled album. One of the most perfect things ever laid down.

Bob Dylan - Blood On The Tracks

Love Bob's lyrics on this album, very personal and emotional. I connected to it in a way that I didn't with a lot of his other albums (as good as they are).

Television's Marquee Moon would be a very close second though.

Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon --- as a teen I appreciated the weirdness of it all, later in my 30s I appreciated just how well produced the thing is, now in my 40s I appreciate just how relevant the lyrics are
