    I don't think you are going to get a unanimous vote here unlike say a 90s poll that Nevermind and OK Computer will get majority votes. The polls will be so split that the "other" option would win out

    I think some of the options currently on the poll can easily be substituted for better albums that have aged well just my unbiased opinion. They can disregard De La Soul, Janet Jackson, and Paul Simon for example with something like Masters of the Puppet, The Queen is Dead, Licensed to Ill, and Disintegration

    It's hard to choose if it isn't divided up by genre.

    Probably Purple Rain from that list though.

    My favorite Rap album is probably Straight outta Compton
    My Favorite Rock album is Blizzard of Oz or Caught Somewhere in Time.

    I find these much too difficult to pick without a certain genre being discussed. My Musical tastes change depending on my mood at the time
