The Beatles Abbey Road
Release Date: September 26, 1969 (Apple Records)
Abbey Road. If you asked most people what they thought of first when you ask them about The Beatles, this is what they would probably think of. (Or Sgt. Pepper's). This album has got to be 1 of their best albums ever to be released, which is weird, because they recorded this album when they were at ends with each other. They weren't even really much of a "band" at this point, since they recorded most of the songs separately, with little help from 1 another.
To be truthful, I didn't really like this album much at all when I first got into The Beatles. I still didn't like it until just recently when I finally gave it a fair listen and was addicted to it afterwards. This album has a lot to offer, from the good ("Come Together") to the bad ("Octopus' Garden") and the Queen ("Her Majesty"). (off topic: 10 cookies for anyone who gets that reference)

Gorillaz - Demon Days (2005)
This album was, and still is, one of Gorillaz's best works, with songs like Feel Good Inc., DARE, Don't Get Lost In Heaven/Demon Days, Dirty Harry, and more. It has several different genres that make up this album, like Orchestral, Hip-Hop, Blues, Gospel Choir, and several others. Not only is the album a melting pot of genres, it's made by, guess what!... Cartoons!
This album makes extensive use of synths, but not anywhere as close as Plastic Beach, their 3rd album. This album also has guitars, lots of drums, lots of bass, and piano. Basically anything you could want is in this album. 2D (Damon Albarn's) voice is near perfect in this album and he picked the perfect people to collaborate with on this album. Gorillaz are known for their collaborations, always having several guests on their albums. This album features contributions from De La Soul, Neneh Cherry, Martina Topley-Bird, Roots Manuva, MF DOOM, Ike Turner, Bootie Brown, Shaun Ryder, De
