Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy

It entered the Billboard 200 Chart at the #1 spot, something no album had ever done before, was nominated for two Grammys, for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance – Male, and has been certified triple platinum by the RIAA. In 2012, it placed at #158 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list.
