Don't know that these are the top 5 or anything but here's 5:
I've picked ones I can remember coming out.

The Mars Volta - De-Loused In The Comatorium
It still feels as unique as ever, and still makes me dance like I'm having a fit.
Radiohead - Kid A
One of the first albums I really let open me up to some weird electronic music. (not that I can find anyone who does it better than Radiohead)
Tom Waits - Bone Machine
The First album of his I fully got into, I'd had mix tapes but this blew me away.
Tori Amos - Welcome To Sunny Florida (I know it's a dvd but i play it like an album)
I can't play this enough, it's sad, uplifting and angry all at the same time.
Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
Another one of the first computery kind of albums I really got into.

Well, I'm a child of the 80s, so my list will probably be different from a lot of yours. I'm also into a wide variety of music ... so here goes:

These aren't in any order, save for the order I heard them:

1. Stryper - To Hell with the Devil

This album really got me into metal. My life changed drastically after hearing this.

2. Slayer - Reign in Blood

This was the album that really got me into Thrash.

3. Nine Ince Nails - Pretty Hate Machine

I remember first hearing this back in the early 90s. I got it right after it was first released. I got really into Industrial after this.

4. Sisters of Mercy - Floodland

Got me into Goth Rock.

5. Depeche Mode - Violator

I love this album as it really opened a new door to me. A door into a world of electronic pop that I love to this day.

These are all albums I heard when I was a kid back in the late 80s/early 90s.

Here's 5 more modern releases that have really impressed me:

Therion - Lemuria/Sirius B
Leaves' Eyes - Vinland Saga
Seabound - Double-Crosser
Enya - Amarantine
Stratovarius - Elements
