Thursday's Full Collapse and Rise Against's Siren Song of the Counter Culture. This thrust me in an entirely different musical direction.

That and Portishead's self-titled album. I bought this CD when I was 16, hated it, then loved it, and it's been with me ever since (I'm 26 now)

New Order - Power Corruption And Lies
Depeche Mode - Music For the Masses
Nin Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
Nitzer Ebb - Belief
Front 242 - Front By Front
Orbital - The Green Album

I'm sure if I though long enough I'd come up with additional/different answers. I'd say those are the albums that helped shape me musically and really pushed me into synthesizers.

Acperience 1 - Hardfloor and just about anything on Harthouse!
Strange Cargo III - William Orbit
UForb - Orb
7614 - Global Communication
Insides - Orbital
Sleepwalk - Matrix

There's probably loads of albums that have had a massive effect on me but this is what springs to mind right now.
