Nice list man!
Effigy of the Forgotten would definitely be in my top 10 as well.
I enjoy a number of other albums on here - October Rust, The Work Which Transforms God, RUUN, and Amongst the Catacombs of the Nephren-Ka.
I like that you posted a short comment about the time of your life or emotions each particular album captures for you. I think it is always interesting to hear about music which has helped people through hard times or was the soundtrack to good times.
