My list is:

1. Judas Priest - Stained Class - Halford/Tipton/Downing, incredible
2. Van Halen - VH1 - a record so much ahead of its time
3. Rainbow - Long Live Rock'n'Roll - a deep album where Dio and Blackmore get everything just perfect
4. Black Sabbath - Paranoid - heavy as hell, and more focused than the debut
5. Deep Purple - In Rock - masterful early heavy metal, and Gillan simply rules
6. Led Zeppelin II - heavy, and it's only 1969
7. UFO - Force It - something I've only recently discovered
8. Nazareth - Hair of the Dog - badass, gritty, great songs
9. Uriah Heep - Demons & Wizards - a little bit of fantasy, a large dose of wonderful musicianship
10. Blue Oyster Cult - Secret Treaties - a lot of albums could be the #10 on the list, but I just think BöC deserves it

Aerosmith-Rocks
Deep Purple-Machine Head


Almost went with (among many others):
Lucifer's Friend-S/T
Nazareth-Hair Of The Dog; but due to burnout I didn't.

Some great stuff listed. A few surprises. I never thought I'd see Styx or The Doors in a discussion like this, but those are good albums by those bands nonetheless.

Nice inclusion of Angel. I almost included them in my list, as well as Starz, but I thought it might start the old "that's not heavy metal" discussion.

Nobody listed Blue Cheer.

I had them on my initial list of about 20 and went with another band when narrowing down to 10.  I forgot Priest somehow ?    I had Sir Lord Baltimore, Bloodrock, and MC5 too.
