Happy Birthday!

There’s no better way to celebrate the greatest American songwriter’s 75th birthday than to stoke reader outrage by attempting to rank his work, album by album.
And I agree with Number 1 although Biograph isn't listed, nor is Greatest Hits, which I guess raises the question can they be viewed as an "album?"  Yes they should be of course; an album can defined as of a moment or a time, with some sort of integrated vision.  "Best of" compilations are simply over longer, an artist's creative life, and with the vision of the artist themselves and their work.
