The Wire album is the biggest (obscure) surprise to see you have listed. :D
I'm going to go listen to Map Reference 41N 93W now.

My top 6 from that list...
(in the order they were on the above list--I was going to do a top 5, but couldn't narrow it down to 5 from 6)

Supertramp - Breakfast in America--I liked this album until I worked in a restaurant & the manager played it over & over & over & over...
She just liked it--and for all I know had played it constantly for years before I had that job.
But I got over it & enjoyed it again.

ZZ Top - Degüello- Uneven in spots, but a cool album--some great riffs & all that.

Led Zeppelin - In Through the Out Door - A bit different than their previous stuff--but still some great moments--it contains the only Zeppelin song I don't like though--Hot Dog

Neil Young - Rust Never Sleeps--Absolute classic, and one I own & probably the one I listen to the most.
By Co-incidence I have the music on the computer on random right now--and guess what's playing as I type this
Powderfinger--from this album--not planned & didn't notice right away

The Police - Reggatta de Blanc Well done follow up to their debut album--that one & this are my favourite Police albums.

Scorpions - Lovedrive -- the album cover lacks some class, but some great tunes.
