Default Top 5 Albums from major or mainstream artists

What are your top 5 favourite albums to liten to that come from major artists? Many of these lists are crowded with obscure albums from artisits most of us have never heard of. Of course, many of the very best recordings are not well known, but how about the well produced gems in the main stream? Bonus points for greatest hits collections. Here are some of my favorites:

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Stadium Arcadium
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Steely Dan - A decade of Steely Dan
Pink Floyd - The Wall
Paul Simon - Shining like a National Guitar (greatest hits)

Interestingly, there's one of the few cover versions I ever liked in both original and cover. All Along The Watchtower. Apocalyptic.
