210 for our 210th

It's our 210th post, and we're celebrating now since we missed the 200th.  Anyway we decided to do 210 albums for our 210th.  Each of us picked 42 of our favorite albums out of 5 of us (you do the math) to compile the list.  The list isn't in any particular order.  All the albums on here are great, and we'd highly recommend them. Of course some albums aren't represented here (we could only pick 42 each) but if you've never heard music before this might be a good place to start.
