I think about this a lot. No compilations of various artists like Now! or greatest hits. Just single artists with their original listener intentions. *in no particular order
  1. 1. Late Registration by Kanye West
  2. 2. Channel Orange by Frank Ocean
    Because you know we're never seeing #2
  3. 3. 21 by Adele
    25 is fantastic but 21 holds something special in memory
  4. 4. From Under the Cork Tree by Fall Out Boy
    Really any of their albums but this one has hits from start to finish. The lyrics always flood back with each listen.
  5. 5. The 20/20 Experience by Justin Timberlake
    The Complete Experience, of course.
  6. **edit added later.
    I just remembered how fucking good Songs About Jane is. Goddamn. Can I have two pop punk bands' albums? I'd probably take out JT for Maroon 5
