outstanding music albums

I mean albums that are perfection in their entirety. They're still as strong and original today as when I first heard them years ago. I started making a list. It's a personal list, as I've only heard a fraction of the music out there (I wonder what fraction, heh).

Of the top of my head:
  • Lauryn Hill: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill - At first, I didn't really like many of the songs on this album, although I could tell that it was good. 10 years or so later I've realized that there is no flaw on this album. Magnificent.
  • Tori Amos: Little Earthquakes - a beautiful album that still resonates with me today.
  • The Cranberries: No Need to Argue - this captured my college angst (although it was much lighter than angst). I still love it. Speaking of which, I need to check out O'Riordan's new album.
I'm not sure about these albums:
  • U2 - the Joshua Tree - I actually don't own this one so I can't judge it.
  • Sarah McLachlan - Fumbling Towards Ecstasy - I loved this album, but it doesn't hold much for me now.
edit: I changed the title of this post because I was misusing the word "seminal."

Hi Kuri,
I got the Dolores' solo album and some of the tracks are excellent, especially the 1st one, which is very catchy. I am a big fan of the Cranberries too, and her voice is just special. I love her super-Irish accent!
:)
