If I had to pick “influential” as opposed just liking it...the albums would have to contain:
King of the Delta Blues Singers from Robert Johnson (1937). As the Blues is the bedrock of all modern pop, this album would have to be there.
Songs for Swinging Lovers...Frank Sinatra (1956). The singing and playing are impeccable, and the production and arrangements are outstanding and so influential on following pop music developments. Should be in everyone’s collection.
Today’s Dead album would be “Live/Dead”...Grateful Dead, (1967). One of the early “double” albums clearly showing their abilty to jam through a whole concert without stopping, morphing from one song to the next. A classic.
