I'm sure we've done this before, but my faves (in random order):

- Burnt Weeny Sandwich
- Waka/Jawaka
- Hot Rats
- Grand Wazoo
- Roxy & Elsewhere
- Lather
- Just Another Band from LA
- Make a Jazz Noise Here
- Uncle Meat
- Absolutely Free

Of course, this list is subject to change every day... In general, the 60s and early/mid 70s stuff is my favorite Zappa music.

i dunno, i dont think i could ever put down a definitive 10, but at the moment i'd include tinseltown rebellion, freak out, joe's garage & one size fits all, not sure what else as those albums have intoxicated me recently...

i'd like to wish myself happy birthday as well while i still got the chance. :P

I feel like doing this for some reason.

1. Hot Rats
2. Lather
3. The Grand Wazoo
4. Roxy & Elsewhere
5. Waka/Jawaka (AAGGH 2-5 are so close..)
6. Son of Cheep Thrills
7. We're Only In It for the Money
8. Cheap Thrills
9. Tinseltown Rebellion
10. Mothers of Prevention

I just got the 10th (Lather) two days ago, so I don't know where it will end up. Definetly top 5.

I feel kind of bad putting the Cheap Thrills albums on there, but I only have 10 so it's my only option to fill it up.
