No particular order for me, you can do what you want.

You're A Woman, I'm A Machine - Death From Above 1979
Silent Alarm - Bloc Party
Sound of Silver - LCD Soundsystem
The Earth Is Not A Cold Dead Place - Explosions In The Sky
Rounds - Four Tet
Homework - Daft Punk
Food & Liquor - Lupe Fiasco
The Looks - MSTRKRFT
Play - Moby
Neon Golden - The Notwist

I can listen to any of these albums without skipping a song, which is why I chose them. Some are pieces of art, some make me want to dance.

Curious to see yours, maybe I can be steered towards some great albums!

Off the top of my head, and in no particular order;

The Horrors - Primary Colours
The xx - XX
Cut Copy - In Ghost Colours
Bloc Party - Silent Alarm
Echo & The Bunnymen - Ocean Rain
Editors - In This Light And On This Evening
Van She - V
The Legends - Over And Over
The Tough Alliance - A New Chance
Boat Club - Caught The Breeze

I may have forgotten one or two, and 'Tarot Sport' by Fuck Buttons, and 'No Way Down' by Air France could definitely both slot in there quite easily, but on the spot, that pretty much sums up my favourites.

No Doubt 'Tragic Kingdom' & 'Return of Saturn'
The Rolling Stones 'Sticky Fingers'

Umm... that list kind of needs a bit of pruning, doesn't it.
Haha

I really wanted to love Set Yourself on Fire but for some reason it felt... like it didn't quite get where it was going. I expected epic fireworks and just got something pretty with an edge. 'Your Ex Lover is Dead' is one of my favourite songs of all time though... as is 'Going Going Gone' (I know it's not on the album)
