I’m not sure I have just five, and I am sure that any five I list would change every time I tried to answer the question. But here’s five that come to mind now. These are from childhood on. But they are ones where I knew all the songs on the album.
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – The Beatles
Blood on the Tracks – Bob Dylan
Strangelove – Depeche Mode
The Stranger – Billy Joel
Purple Rain – Prince

The Amazon list is for LIVE albums and they made a huge omission when they left out the Allmann Brothers Fillmore East album, probably the best live album of all time.
For albums in general, my list (today) would be:
1. Graceland, Paul Simon
2. Revolver, Beatles
3. Blue, Joni Mitchell
4. Thriller, Michael Jackson
5. Still Life (Talking), Pat Metheny

Top Five? Tough. So many artists albums are uneven. But I would say:
1-U2 Joshua Tree (Why has no one else mentioned this? It should be on everyone’s top five–it’s a given.)
2-Bob Dylan Time Out of Mind Underappreciated, but full of Dylan soul.
3-Moby Play The only CD you really need.
4-Bruce Springsteen The Rising Full of gems. Full.
5-Jeff Johnson Brendan’s Prayer (or Patrick–both great)

Chaplain Mike,
Amen Brother! Any list of the so called Greatest Live Albums of all time that omits the Allman Bros Live at the Fillmore East is a joke.
When the Lord invented the slide guitar he gave it to Brother Duane.

U2 – Achtung Baby
Radiohead – Kid A
Led Zeppelin – III
Crowded House – Woodface
AC/DC – Back in Black
Honorable mention to Arcade Fire – Funeral and Wilco – Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. But that’s cheating, isn’t it?

I wondered how I ended up playing Deep Purple. I had the live album listed there, very good as I recall. Over now listening to the Machine Head album- 1972 on YouTube. I used to drive my parents crazy with my music, I’m sure.

What? No Joni Mitchell. Her first is great – Song to a Seagull. Then Santana. Santana not mentioned? sacrilege.
