Why not go to the source and choose "The Adventures of Grandmaster Flash
on the Wheels of Steel"?

>     De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising

This record is so dated it's pathetic. It was great at the time but I
think it only gets onto lists like these out of sheer reputation at
this point. The skits (that seem to take up about half the record) are
embarrassing, and most of the sampling is really forced. It's the sort
of record that lots of people own, but only listen to once a year, if that.

>     Brian Eno - Music For Airports

"Hey, this one says 'Ambient #1' so it must be the number-one best Eno
record, right?"

No way would I pick the first SAW collection over the Polygon
Window album.
