This challenge is to tell the most about your musical tastes in 5 albums. Not necessarily your 5 all-time favorite albums, but 5 that, collectively, tell the most about what you like.

This turned out to be more difficult that I would have guessed, here's mine...

Nick Drake: Pink Moon
David Bowie: Low
Joy Division: Unknown Pleasures
U2: The Unforgettable Fire
Sigur Ros: ( )

Beatles : Revolver
Led Zeppelin : I (eponymous)
Monterey International Pop Festival box set
Marvin Gaye : Whats Going On
L.A. Four : Pavanne pour une Infante Defunte

Revolver - Beatles are my favorite band, and I like a lot of the solo work as well.

Led Zep I - Blues & Blues Rock are another passion.

Monterey Pop - A little of everything from Lou Rawls to the Who to Ravi Shankar.

Whats Going On - R&B meets protest songs meets jazz influences.

Pavanne - Obscure (but da#n fine) album by accoustic, straight ahead jazzers.
