Spin's 125 best albums of the past 25 yrs

Spin magazine has compiled what they consider to be the 125 best albums released since 1985.  Whenever I come across these lists I immediately scan to see how many are in my collection.  It was a little surprising to me that I only own one of the list's LPs from the past decade (American Idiot); Overall I own a total of 16 (on vinyl).  I must say these are sixteen downright dandy records:
119. Green Day - American Idiot (2004)
102. Queen Latifah - All Hail The Queen (1990)
94. Jane's Addiction - Ritual De Lo Habitual (1990)
70. Pearl Jam - Ten (1991)
69. The Stone Roses (1989)
63. R.E.M. - Fables of the Reconstruction (1985)
44. Beastie Boys - License to Ill (1986)
35. R.E.M. - Automatic for the People (1992)
34. Beck - Odelay (1996)
30. A Tribe Called Quest - The Low End Theory (1991)
27. Nirvana - In Utero (1993)
17. De La Soul - 3 Feet High and Rising (1989)
14. Beastie Boys - Paul's Boutique (1989)
5. Radiohead - OK Computer (1997)
4. Nirvana - Nevermind (1991)
2. Prince - Sign O' The Times (1987)
