Thats off the top of my head. New records I like are anything by the White Stripes although the new album is kind of bland, dito for the Black Keys including their bland new album, Ryan Adams Cold Roses/Jacksonville Nights/Love is Hell/Rock n roll, Besnard Lakes are the Dark Horse, Anything by Radiohead is top drawer with Kid A being my favorite, and my favorite record this year so far is by a band called The Tongues Of Treble, it will be out later this year, I've only heard the rough mixes but it beats anything so far this year.

yeah i'll have to go in no particular order too:

Thin Lizzy - Jail Break
Green Day - Dookie
The Weakerthans - Left and Leaving
Aesop Rock - Labor Days
J-Live - All of the Above
Guns N Roses -Appetite for Destruction
Mr. T Experience - Revenge Is Sweet And So Are You
The Dandy Warhols - Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia
The Lemonheads - The Atlantic Years
Refused - The Shape of Punk to Come
Mastodon - Leviathan
Sonny Rollins - Saxophone Colossus
Weezer - Pinkerton
Outkast - The Love Below
Randy - You Can't Keep A Good Band Down
Lou Reed - New York
Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of the Moon
Whiskey Town - Pneumonia
Snapcase - Progression Through Unlearning
The Dandy Warhols - Come Down

I think some of these are just current favorites, but a lot of them are albums that I love to listen to all the way through and keep it on repeat. I also realized that thinking up 20 favorites is a little more than twice as hard as only 10.
