100 albums that has influenced me from my childhood to adulthood

I finally completed my latest list of the 100 albums that has influenced me from my youth to the present moment as an adult. I ranked these albums by the places they have in my heart as well as relevancy. Most of the albums I have listed are from my late teens/early 20's but there are a few childhood favorites. My brother and his stoner/hippy friends in high school played a bit of influence on my musical tastes (i.e Pink Floyd, Indigo Girls, and Led Zeppelin) so I had to include those albums.
