I'll go with:
Dark Side of the Moon
Wish You Were Here
Chicago at Carnegie Hall
Derek & the Dominos at the Fillmore East
Something New - The Beatles
Grand Funk Railroad - Survival
Greatest Hits collections don't count, maybe live albums shouldn't either (even though I included a few).
Second Album - Roy Buchanan
Grace - Jeff Buckley
Super Session - Al Kooper, Mike Bloomfield, Stephen Stills
Put on some quality headphones and dig into this one. It's got to be the best album of the 80s. Surely it's Queensrÿche's best.
My dad used to wake us up on Sunday morning with that album.
The Captain and Me
[B] Against ALL enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC

Oh man. Great thread!
INXS - X
U2 - Joshua Tree
Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream
Sasha - Airdrawndagger
Shiny Toy Guns - We Are Pilots
Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
A-ha - Stay On These Roads
Okay that's all over the landscape, style-wise. The thing is, I'm a full album guy and I hope that with the internet, iTunes, and singles/EPs being so popular, that the idea of an album doesn't go away. So many of the albums in this thread are so prolific because they tell a story. A story about the artist, a time in your life or history. Etc.
Man Arc, what a great idea.
“The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false-face for the urge to rule it.”—H.L. Mencken
Queensryche - Operation Mindcrime
Queen - A Kind of Magic

Triumph - Allied Forces
Let all Men know thee, but no man know thee thoroughly: Men freely ford that see the shallows.

Pat Metheny and Lyle Mays - As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls
Bill Bruford - One of a Kind (Progressive rock, Allan Holdsworth on guitar)
Donald Fagan -The Nightfly
Al Stewart - Year of the Cat
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV
"Lion Heart is all heart, Smarty Jones is all out!!!"
Some I agree with and some I don't...but, some great answers so far. I would nominate The Rolling Stones Let It Bleed.

Police - Syncronicity
Rush - 2112
Creedence - Cosmos Factory.
Cream - Disraeli Gears

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here.

I wanted badly to put a Van Morrison album on this list. “Enlightenment” comes close. “Astral Week’s” is considered by many to be among the GOAT—I have to be in the mood though.
Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.
- Robert Frost
Dire Straits: Love Over Gold
Third Eye Blind: Third Eye Blind
Though we choose between reality and madness
It's either sadness or euphoria
