    Radiohead - OK Computer
    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    Pink Floyd - The Wall
    The National - Boxer
    The National - High Violet
    Muse - Origin of Symmetry
    Arcade Fire - Funeral
    Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms
    Elbow - The Seldom Seen Kid
    R. E. M. - Automatic For The People

    Honorable mentions for Oasis/(What's The Story) Morning Glory? and Gaslight Anthem/The '59 Sound.

    Good to see OKC, Boxer and Origin of Symmetry getting some mentions!
    Top list. OK Computer, the 2 Pink Floyd albums and (What's The Story) Morning Glory would be the ones in my top 10 from that... but a big fan of all of those albums (apart from Elbow).

    I would have to pop a Beatles album in my top 10 albums though, probably Help! or the White Album. The Who album, probably Tommy.

    While it may just be because it's one of the albums I can't stop listening to recently, Frank Turner's Love Ire & Song is up there at the moment.

    Then probably Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy to round it off. That's just a quick thought though, there are so many brilliant albums, if I was asked again tomorrow I would probably come up with 10 different ones.

    My personal top 10 most listened to albums:
    Whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not -arctic monkeys
    From under the cork tree - fall out boy
    How to save a life - the fray
    Inbetween dreams - jack johnson
    We steal, we dance, we steal things - Jason mraz
    Hybrid theory - Linkin park
    These streets - Paolo Nutini
    By the way - Red hot chilli peppers
    Tracy Chapman - tracy chapman
    A guide to loss, love and desperation - Wombats

    Out of my albums these are some of the most well rounded, I have a lot of hip-hop albums which don't appear as they are not consistant enough. I would say by far my favourite is hybrid theory as it's the first CD I ever bought and could just listen to every single track on it that's why it went 10 x platinum
