    I voted for London Calling, but I think The Wall and Three Imaginary Boys by The Cure deserve to be up there as well.
    The Replacements - OutKast - The Knife - HAIM - Bonobo - Afghan Whigs - The Glitch Mob - The Cult - Shlohmo - Waxahatchee - Wye Oak

    Queens of the Stone Age - Pharrell Williams - Pet Shop Boys - Empire of the Sun - Fatboy Slim - Nas - Kid Cudi - Warpaint - Mogwai - Foxygen - The Dismemberment Plan - Blood Orange

    Arcade Fire - Beck - Neutral Milk Hotel - Disclosure - Motorhead - Duck Sauce - Little Dragon - Toy Dolls - Fishbone - Superchunk - Daughter - Surfer Blood

    I always considered London Calling a 1980 album,since that is when it came out here.So I'd have to say Fear Of Music.
    I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.

    Breakfast In America, Highway to Hell, Tusk, Regatta De Blanc and Eat To The Beat all worth a mention too.

    The Clash - London Calling | no doubt. But I think the Wall would have been my runner up

    None of that material was released in LP form before that. I think it's fine.

    polls for various years would be interesting. For example, 1991 would be good. My bloody valentine, primal scream, teenage fanclub. Although, I imagine nevermind would get a fair amount of the votes.

    I wasn't alive in '79, lol. But what you were listening to clearly shows you've always had good taste in music

    I love every one of these albums, and they can all be found on my iPod. I went with London Calling, as it's one of my all-time favorites by anyone in any year.

    Poor 154...
    In hindsight, I don't know why I put Secondhand Daylight up there. It's good, but it really pales in comparison to a few of the other post-punk albums up there.

    That's definitely a music geek's '79 list. The general public was listening to little to none of those albums in 1979.
    8/28 - Ty Segall - Echo
    8/31 - Sleep - Troubadour (?)
    9/05 - The Rentals - Fonda (?)
    9/11 - Swans - Roxy
    9/13 - Owen Pallett - El Rey (?)

    I was listening to 6 of those albums around that time. I'm including London Calling, even though it wasn't released in the US until January 1980.
