well me and my bruth have had conversation after conversation about this generally after a few smokes n beers and it usually changes quite regularly but this is my choice at the moment

rush - moving pictures
tears for fears - sowing the seeds of love (if only for woman in chains)
david & David - boomtown
roger waters - pros & cons of hitchhiking
yello - baby or the eye it a tough choice
thomas dolby - the flat earth
dave mathews band - crash
faithless - to all new arrivals
massive attack - mezzanine
kate bush - hounds of love

but to just pick 10 is doing an injustice really to all the other stuff ive missed out like mike oldfield - songs from distant earth, mission - god is a bullet, tracey thorn and everything but the girl, marillion, pink floyd, jarre the list is endless hehe but ill quit there

Wow, quite a few of my favs have been mentioned :)

Counting Crows - August and Everything After

Smashing Pumpkins - Siamese Dream

Nirvana - Unplugged In New York

Explosions in the Sky - How Strange, Innocence

Kings of Leon - Aha Shake Heartbreak (on the subject of these guys, Because of the Times seems to me to be poorly mixed, especially compared to the first two).

Sigur Ros - µg‘tis byrjun

Pearl Jam - Ten

U2 - Best Of 1980-1990

The National - Boxer

Shadow of the Colussus OST

Foo Fighters - The Color and the Shape

It's hard to name 10 though, there are so many excellent albums, and any top 10 lists.

Tips the hat to Mr. Nandjg there.

The Bowie LP is probably my fave of his and arguably his best. However you slice it, his 1971-1980 period was blisteringly good; high quality, diverse output that took popular music on an amazing journey for almost all of that period.
