The Smashing Pumpkins' "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" and Phish's "A Live One" were pretty important albums to me when I was younger.

More recently, I have enjoyed LCD Soundsystem's self-title and Nellie McKay's "Get Away From Me."

Songs in the Key of Life is one of the best! Other faves for me include Genesis - Seconds Out and Santana - Moonflower
