Default Your Five Most Influential Electric Guitar Albums?

What are your five most influential electric guitar albums? By "guitar album" I mean any album where the electric guitar influenced you, not that it was an instrumental album (although it could be).

I know we have Angus and Malcolm Young fans so perhaps an AC/DC album made you pick up the guitar? Perhaps a Stevie Ray Vaughan album? Perhaps an Elvis album where Scotty Moore played?

I developed a taste for certain tones which influenced my guitars, amps and settings.

Chris Isaak's self titled album and the lead guitar work of James Calvin Wilsey.
The Atlantic's Bombora and the reverb drenched brutality of surf guitar.
The Vandura's self titled album.
Johnny Cash With His Hot and Blue Guitar album and the simple lead lines of Luther Perkins.
Norah Jones The Fall album. (Rich Americana electric guitar tones on this particular album).

Honorable mentions including albums from early Elvis, Hank Marvin and the Shadows, early Waylon Jennings, Glen Campbell, Ryan Adams, pretty much anything with a pedal steel (not that I can play pedal steel) plus a whole lot more.
