Jessica,

For your consideration:
https://www.amazon.com/Snowflakes-Are-Dancing-Tomita/dp/B00000E68K
Snowflakes Are Dancing
Isao Tomita

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowflakes_Are_Dancing

Snowflakes Are Dancing is the second studio album by Japanese musician Isao Tomita, recorded in 1973–1974 and first released by RCA Records as a Quadradisc in April 1974.[2] The album consists entirely of Tomita's arrangements of Claude Debussy's "tone paintings", performed by Tomita on a Moog synthesizer and a Mellotron. It entered the top 50 charts in the United States, where it was nominated for four Grammy Awards in 1975, including best classical album of the year, and it was NARM's best-selling classical album of the year.[2][3] In Canada, it reached #57 in the RPM Magazine Top Albums chart. [4]

I'm not sure if mine has an image for it... is it okay if I just use the image of the band?

Jessica,

Does it have to be a song album or Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (OST) are also acceptable?

Sure, if your all time favorite album is a soundtrack album, I'll include it.

Yes. I more into instrumental soundtracks than vocal songs.

My all-time favorite is The Godfather (1972) soundtrack by Nino Rota.

Edit: Actually, my all-time favorite is The Godfather trilogy album but I couldn't find the cover of that album on IMDb.

Yikes, I don't know if I can choose just one. Sooo difficult. I did a list of ten once and that was excruciating but I guess I'll just go with Life's Rich Pageant by R.E.M.

I'm mulling this over. But I feel if I jump in with an immediate first thought nomination (as I have no idea how to mentally pull up decades worth of albums experienced), I'd be a neglectful parent and feel so guilty and misguided in my choice as others will obviously be remembered soon after posting my choice.

The other can of worms revolves around getting a decent album cover or representation of one for the list.

Not my nomination but here's an arbitrary list of my potential farmland of albums.
Fleetwood Mac, Rumours
Punch Brothers, Punch (this might ultimately be my choice)
New Pornographers, Challengers
Steeley Dan, Aja
Bruce HornsbyBride of the Noisemakers (HA! A double live album!)
ABC, How to Be a ... Zillionaire!
Neko Case, Middle Cyclone
Metric, Fantasies
Diana Krall, When I Look Into Your Eyes
Jenny Lewis, The Voyager
Death Cab for Cutie, Narrow Stairs
Rickie Lee Jones, The Evening of My Best Day or Pirates
Edgar Meyer, Mark O'Connor, and Yo-Yo Ma, Appalachia Waltz
Aimee Mann, Magnolia soundtrack or Lost in Space or @#%&*! Smilers or Mental Illness
Wynton Marsalis, Standard Time, Vol. 2: Intimacy Calling

I'll come back with more albums... or a choice. This is painful. Sophie had an easier choice.

I honestly have a HUGE list of favorite albums, so I've got too much to choose from.
