difficult to do a top ten but:-

The verve, bluetones, the smiths, charlatans, guns n roses (slash era), cooper temple clause, ride, Suede (Bernard butler era), Smashing pumpkins (mainly early), Blur.

Others I missed off the top of my head Foo fighters, Metallica, Beatles, Blur, echo and the bunnymen, the Band, soundgarden, kasabian, pulp, the Cure..better stop now.

I have to say I don''t think the original question works for me. It would make more sense to ask about specific albums - Dark Side of the Moon is one of my top three albums, but I can''t stand the fey, mannered sh*te Floyd did early in their career, and the most recent stuff is just dull and turgid. Similar with Kind of Blue by Miles Davis - a favourite but that doesn''t mean I listen to much else by him.

I had a look for an old thread asking exactly that - top ten albums - that Evil Monkey started (where did he go?) which even compiled them into an overall chart, but it seems to have disappeared sadly.

First album was blondies parallel lines, distinct improvement on first single racys some girls.

Mind you I came from a home where bacarra, pussycat and gombay dance band were on constant play. Boney M was a huge improvement.

Going to go for a current top 10 rather than all time op 10:

Tame Impala

Jagwar Ma

Django Django

The Last Shadow Puppets

Arctic Monkeys

The Kills

James Blunt

Allah Las

Foals

Blossoms.

I think that''s the top 10 - got a feeling I''ve missed someone/could be many more in there...
