Electric Ladyland for me.  I have referred to this album as the  "greatest guitar album" in rock music.  So many different types of songs on it.

I think...

Are You Experienced is the best.

Axis: Bold as Love is my favorite.

Electric Ladyland is overrated.

All are essential.

Love Hendrix.  I have the 4 disc box set with all the alternate takes and live versions, and I never tire of his music.

This for me is a no brainer.  His debut is flawless.

...Some part of me shares all these feelings, though I still love Electric Ladyland.

After more thought though, I'd have to rank my favorites like this:

Axis: Bold As Love
Electric Ladyland
Are You Experienced?

Are you experienced for me. EL close behind. They are all so wonderful. Might have voted for Band Of Gypsys had it been included

Axis for me.  Both 'Spanish Castle Magic' and 'If 6 Was 9' are in my top Jimi Hendrix songs.

I really like Are You Experienced, since it has lots of Hendrix classics on there, such as Foxy lady, I Don't Live Today, Manic Depression, Red House, and of course Are You Experienced. Axis Bold Of Love is probably a close second since I really like Spanish Castle Magic, Castles Made Of Sand, Little Wing, and if 6 was 9.

Axis. Gave him room to spread out and move on from radio friendly 'hits'.

Don't forget Smash Hits by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Track Records first issued the compilation album on April 12, 1968, in the UK and included all four of the group's singles (eight "sides") released up to that time, plus four additional songs from the UK edition of Are You Experienced.

Reprise Records did not issue the album in the US until July 30, 1969, and it included some different tracks. It included two songs from Electric Ladyland and a stereo version of "Red House" from a different session than the original mono take found on the UK version of Are You Experienced.
