The first time I heard an entire Pink Floyd album was at this fellows trailer he put right at the edge of a pine cutover way the Hell back in the hills of Ga. Of course we were pretty sloshed and it was Animals,, still my favorite by them. I think the ambience of that guy's black lights, the eerie location,, way back in the woods,, put an extra touch on the tunes,, after Floyd, it was Black Sabbath, ELP, Hendrix,,, we went out there a lot until the dummy got thrown in jail,, we never heard why,, we lived in the next county.

I am no musician so IMO meaningful albums are more about where you are in your life than any real musical genius. So I'll give this a couple answers.

First real holy crap, wow album was The Who's Qdadraphenia. Still wear it out today, and own the movie. I love Townsend as a writer.

Since then I'd say other albums that really wowed me the most were John Mayal and the Bluesbreakers with Clapton. Hendrix heard how Clapton played on that album and it influenced his style. That's saying something.

Just Won't Burn by Susan Tedeschi clued me into the fact that there are some really good females blues artists out there. Until that point I never gave them a chance.

Exile on Main St by the Stones was what it really took to get me to get into any Stones music. There more modern music doesn't do much for me, but their older music does.

I like Animals by Floyd and it is a mainstay of my collection, but for some reason The Final Cut was always my favorite Floyd album. But I may own them all so I am not too picky when it comes to them.

Animals for me as well. Although not regarded as a truly successful album at the time, it was clever, insightful, and truly a lyrical and instrumental masterpiece...
That was the first whole album I purchased on iTunes! Have owned in vinyl, cassette, and twice in cd as well.
I truly cannot change the station when it is playing and will remain in my truck until no longer on....perhaps sitting in the parking lot of my destination (yes, I'm THAT guy!)

"Hey, you White House.....ha haaaaa charade you are"

Disclaimer: I am not a musician, but I played one all the way through college, majoring in classical violin performance.

Actually my first album was a bunch of 45s by Buddy Holly. First real album was Merle Haggard. It was a while back.

Default Most influential Album, for me it was Animals!

Sarge we have a similar taste in music, as I see most of us on this thread. Growing up in the Bronx I got exposed to a lot of different genres of music. I put down the violin at 12(started with both at 5 & 6) to focus strictly on Guitar, and had to pick up the violin again for HS a bit . Again, I didn't get into Floyd until "Wish" came out. But 3 years earlier I was sitting intently with my radio shack headphones trying to learn every lick of Steve Howe from YES and the album Fragile. Right after that, Bill Bruford left yes to play drums in KING CRIMSON, and was a member on and off until his retirement from performing in 2007...although I'm still a YES fan, I miss Bruford's style of drumming. Wish I could see them this summer, but they are already sold out, even with another new singer( this one, Jon Davidson, is the closest to Jon Anderson in some time, which is why their set is still 80% old music)...I urge anyone who has never been to a Yes Show to go. If for no other reason to hear Steve Howe play(74 and still tearing it up!!). I saw then two summers ago, and even with only 2 original members,...(Howe and Bassist/Vocalist Chris Squire) they are amazing. I put Gilmour, Howe, Crimsons ' Robert Fripp, in the same level as Hendrix, beck, Clapton, and Page....Also, Asia is back together as well( last year they did a tour with YES, with Howe and Geoff Downes playing both Sets...) almost was a rocker, until I learned to make " music" with rotor blades....
