Sorry to be more than predictable, but Achtung Baby (followed closely by Joni Mitchell's Blue)
She's gonna dream up the world she wants to live in

It's a very difficult one to pick just that one.

I've got 3 straight away that i could honestly  say i'd be happy to give such a title and i could extend that list to 6 or 7 without really trying.

Really focuses the mind when boiling it down to just 1, and i dare say it could be a different answer in 6 months!!

For me itís a tie between Achtung Baby and Led Zeps Physical Graffiti, with Joshua Tree, Sticky Fingers, and Born to Run right behind them.

Being objective, I'd say Dark Side of the Moon.  But it's not my personal favourite, which is either AB or Sticky Fingers.

Given this a ridiculous amount of thought this evening and it has gone back and forth between 3 albums in particular but in the end i think it has to be this:

I donít understand the ę best Ľ... based on what criteria ?

I can tell you my favorite, but I donít understand the concept of ę best Ľ.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Best/favourite -  can be interchangeable as far as this goes depending on individuals.

For me it's U2 - Unforgettable Fire

36 years later, I can still get an audiogasm from BAD, EPAA, ASOH, UF itself, wire and several of the outtakes - for me it could have been a double album easily.
