Wow dude, we could talk about this all day!

A great album has highs and lows and takes you on a journey through those highs and lows with every song. A great album wreaks of passion, pain, dominance, vulnerability, or whatever else you're feeling or looking for at the time it becomes great for you. The timing is important...the same record at a different time of your life may not have the same impact on you and therefore may not be as "good".

I'm a huge Zeppelin fan...the 2nd album, I wore that thing out! It was a powerful and confident record at a time in my life when I was searching for my bravado as a young teen. Every song on that record just kicked ass and I walked a little taller just knowing those songs.

BTW, I'd argue with your #8) Has breathtaking vocals, unless you're really talking about lyrics here and not necessarily the vocal abilities. Neil Young was a very influential musician from my younger years...."Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" is still one of my all-time favorite records and, again, I wore it out. But, like Bob Dylan, Young is just a horrible singer! But it worked for them because of the lyrics they wrote.

I could go on and on.......
