Jessica,

For your consideration:
https://www.amazon.com/Snowflakes-Are-Dancing-Tomita/dp/B00000E68K
Snowflakes Are Dancing
Isao Tomita

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowflakes_Are_Dancing

Snowflakes Are Dancing is the second studio album by Japanese musician Isao Tomita, recorded in 1973–1974 and first released by RCA Records as a Quadradisc in April 1974.[2] The album consists entirely of Tomita's arrangements of Claude Debussy's "tone paintings", performed by Tomita on a Moog synthesizer and a Mellotron. It entered the top 50 charts in the United States, where it was nominated for four Grammy Awards in 1975, including best classical album of the year, and it was NARM's best-selling classical album of the year.[2][3] In Canada, it reached #57 in the RPM Magazine Top Albums chart.

"The Logical Song" is one of my all-time favorite songs since I was a little kid and still today. If i had the time right now, I'd tell a story about it.

Ed,

Since your biography states:
Ed Jones, A.K.A. E Cliff Jonz is a professional D.J. He has worked in the Night Club industry in Denver since the 1980's. He has also done some Stand Up and Improv. Voice work is a specialty, and he has at least a 100 plus character voices, does accents, and impersonations. He is an excellent voice and dialog coach and a singer.

I suspect all of the above applies.

Yikes, I don't know if I can choose just one. Sooo difficult. I did a list of ten once and that was excruciating but I guess I'll just go with Life's Rich Pageant by R.E.M.

I'm mulling this over. But I feel if I jump in with an immediate first thought nomination (as I have no idea how to mentally pull up decades worth of albums experienced), I'd be a neglectful parent and feel so guilty and misguided in my choice as others will obviously be remembered soon after posting my choice.

The other can of worms revolves around getting a decent album cover or representation of one for the list.

Not my nomination but here's an arbitrary list of my potential farmland of albums.
Fleetwood Mac, Rumours
Punch Brothers, Punch (this might ultimately be my choice)
New Pornographers, Challengers
Steeley Dan, Aja
Bruce HornsbyBride of the Noisemakers (HA! A double live album!)
ABC, How to Be a ... Zillionaire!
Neko Case, Middle Cyclone
Metric, Fantasies
Diana Krall, When I Look Into Your Eyes
Jenny Lewis, The Voyager
Death Cab for Cutie, Narrow Stairs
Rickie Lee Jones, The Evening of My Best Day or Pirates
Edgar Meyer, Mark O'Connor, and Yo-Yo Ma, Appalachia Waltz
Aimee Mann, Magnolia soundtrack or Lost in Space or @#%&*! Smilers or Mental Illness
Wynton Marsalis, Standard Time, Vol. 2: Intimacy Calling

I'll come back with more albums... or a choice. This is painful. Sophie had an easier choice.
