Turning six and a day is no less significant than turning six, so we've decided to keep the celebration going with yet another round of picks. For inspiration, we've asked our Alpha and Delta Team members to create this list comprised of their favourite albums. Please enjoy, and be sure to let them know what you think in the torrent comments or discussion thread.

A brief note before turning to the picks: While many of you have undoubtedly heard the sad news regarding Lou Reed's passing, it is in celebration of Reed's life that the wonderful Ooioo has chosen The Velvet Underground's "The Velvet Underground & Nico" as his staff pick. This pick was added late, so we draw your attention to it now in the hope that you'll join us in observing this musical pioneer's accomplishments. To Lou: thanks for the music, and may you rest in peace.
