I'd think orgers would not be so biased to name Prince albums as their favorites in all of the last four decades that you have to specifically ask to exclude his releases from this survey. Anyway, your thread, your rules so...

1960s: The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground & Nico

1970s: Public Image Ltd. - Metal Box

1980s: Michael Jackson - Thriller (this otherwise would have been Parade)

1990s: Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes

2000s: The Pipettes - We Are The Pipettes

To answer your question, as a Prince fanatic, I'll most likely list a Prince album as my favorite of each past decade, other than the '60s of course biggrin (Prince, Purple Rain, Love Symbol album, The Rainbow Children). wink

Your profile only labels you an enthusiast so you can't like Prince that much. Do you also like For You more than any non-Prince album released in the 70s?

I know you say the last 5 decades because technically, this one isn't over yet but I'm going to include an album from the 2010's too because I have no doubt that within the next 3 years, it won't be beaten.


60's
Sly and the Family Stone - Stand
An easy one for me, I don't have much 60's music in my collection.

70's
Bruce Springsteen - Born To Run
One of my top 5 favourite albums of all time

80's
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Could easily have been Born in the USA but I didn't want to fill up the list with too much Springsteen. Besides, Thriller is a masterpiece.

90's
D'Angelo - Brown Sugar
Very important album in the life of young EmmaMcG, I'll leave it at that.

2000's
Bruce Springsteen - Magic
Radio Nowhere, Living In The Future etc. Great songs make for a great album.

2010's
D'Angelo - Black Messiah
The perfect follow up to Voodoo, D'Angelo brings class to the modern RnB scene.

1950s: Frankie Lee Sims - Lucy Mae Blues (Technically, this is a compilation that came out in 1970, but Frankie never actually released any albums while alive, only singles. All of the songs came out in the 1950s though. It was common in that era for some acts to have singles only contracts and some small labels only released 45s and/or 78s.)

1960s: The Beatles - A Hard Day's Night Soundtrack (USA version, I had this one 1st and I like the George Martin instrumentals)

1970s: Johnnie Taylor - Super Taylor

1980s: The Gap Band - Gap Band III

1990s: Swing Out Sister - Get In Touch With Yourself

2000s: Basia - It's That Girl Again

2010s: The Monkees - Good Times

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

Just realised there are no requests for a 2010's album, which is good as finding a 2000s album was hard, I generally stopped listening to new music around 1996 apart from Prince, MJ and a few other older artists still releasing.

.

I would have chosen Rebel Heart by Madonna, but really its like most post 1995 Madonna albums, very hit and miss.

.

A 50s album is easy - there is no other - Here's Little Richard (1957)

Got some kind of love for you, and I don't even know your name
