Spinal Tap - This is Spinal Tap
Monty Python - The Album Of The Soundtrack Of The Trailer Of The Film Of Monty Python And The Holy Grail
Eilert Pilarm - Live in Stockholm
Klaus Wunderlich - Hammond Pops 6
Plastic Bertrand - An 1

Or, on a more serious note:

Queen - Queen II
Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life
Tom Waits - Rain Dogs
Frank Zappa - Roxy & Elsewhere
Radiohead - Amnesiac

But... was this supposed to be a list based on what people consider classics in their opinion, or classics in a general public's opinion? Those 5 just came from the top of my head, in no particular order of preference.

For the time being, I'll go with these (In no particular order):

Full Moon Fever - Tom Petty
Sunshine Lies - Matthew Sweet
Innuendo - Queen
River of Dreams - Billy Joel
After the Gold Rush - Neil Young

It was a hard choice between Gold Rush and Warren Zevon's self-titled album, but I've listened to Gold Rush more lately, so it wins this time. But it was REALLY close.

[EDIT] Man, there are some really fantastic albums listed in this thread!
