    Great list of albums.
    Just curious:
    LZ III is your favorite Zep album from the 70's? I wouldn't think it would be the popular choice. I respect that.

    And you like VHII over the debut? I've heard this from a few people. I'll never understand that opinion. LOL, it's all good though.

    Picking between Exile and Sticky is very difficult. Probably have to depend on the day for me.

    Led Zeppelin III wouldn’t have been my choice in the 80’s, but that album has grown in stature for me over the years.

    Van Halen II was my first Van Halen album, has more of personal meaning to me, over the debut. Which I didn’t hear, save for Running with the Devil, Jamie’s Crying, & You Really Got Me, until a few months later.

    Exile on Main Street is hands down my favorite album of all time.

    I’d add to my list

    70s-Animals
    90s-Wildflowers

    My preference as well. There's nothing bad about the debut. VHII just has that something more. Not quite sure what it is.

    1960s: "Beggars Banquet"

    1970s: Van Halen I

    1980s: Very tough, but probably "Appetite for Destruction"

    1990s: Likewise very tough, but if the measure is which album from that decade I spin most frequently still, the honor must go to "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge."
