Oh, and one more:

Stunning production, beautifully mastered.

Kraftwerk's "Autobahn"
Sting's: "Nothing Like the Sun"
Robert Fripp's: "Exposure"

Awshucks

Another great one: Yes - 90125. Just amazing with good phones or between speakers with some volume.

Also, Zeppelin's "The Song Remains the Same" live album, there are songs on there that are just not the same unless you've got true surround. Used to listen to the album at night with one speaker on each side of the bed to get the effect

Let's not forget that a very talented 18-year old youngster by the name of Neal Schon also played guitar on Santana's "Caravanserai".

Good call on Dukes of Strat - one of the great "unknown albums". Incredible range of guitar tones on that record, courtesy of Dave Gregory for the most part.

The very first Pink Floyd album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, is amazing and scary for it's day

I'd also add any of the records by Swervedriver for noise psych!

I was going to say that Electric Ladyland is a MUST for this type of list. And I see that it's first.

Nicely done.
