Top Ten Album Project Revisisted - Pete Zeigler

A while back a very different lineup of the Rationales did a little project here - sharing each of our top ten favorite/most influential albums with the good peoples. We've decided that since the band is pretty different these days - we'd revisit it over the coming weeks... so here you go - newest Rationale - Pete Zeigler's list!

Here are my top ten most influential albums.  There probably are no surprises on this, the top ten are really the sources of how I play now.  The honorable mentions are probably equally important, but came to mind later, so they get to be alternates.
