No top 20 as such, for me. I was only 11, so everything I heard was new and pretty wonderful.

Magical Mystery Tour - Beatles
Goodbye and Hello - Tim Buckley
Eponymous - Buffalo Springfield
John Wesley Harding - Dylan
Axis Bold As Love - Hendrix
Forever Changes - Love
A Rainbow In Curved Air - Terry Riley
Mr Fantasy - Traffic
Scott - Scott Walker
Their Satanic Majesties Request - Rolling Stones
Days Of Future Passed - Moody Blues

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhšuser Gate.

Interestingly, Forever Changes is another one where several musicologists argue the given release date is incorrect.  There is, I'm led to understand, very little evidence that it was actually in the shops before '68.

Over here, maybe.  It'll always be 1967 as far as I'm concerned.

Nope, in the US too.  The story goes that there was pre-release info and a date given, but for various technical reasons it didn't get into the shops until Jan '68.  There's certainly almost no reviews until then.  One advert for Alone Again Or (which did come out in Jan 68) states "prior to the release of the album blah blah".  It's a purely technical point, but this kind of sh1t always interests me...  In any case, almost nobody actually heard it in '67.

It should be said Johnny doesn't agree, but even he admitted that he might be misremembering things looking back because they've been repeated so often....

Kaleidoscope would probably be my number one, but don't ask me to put the rest in any order. I'm going with Richard Morton Jack's theory that Forever Changes didn't actually see the light until '68, his research is always thorough and invariably accurate, otherwise that would be vying for top spot.

Kaleidoscope (UK) - Tangerine Dream
The Byrds - Younger Than Yesterday
The Doors - The Doors
The Doors - Strange Days
Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow
John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers - A Hard Road
Traffic - Mr Fantasy
The Electric Prunes - The Electric Prunes
The Electric Prunes - Underground
The Who - Sell Out
Rolling Stones - Their Satanic Majesties Request
The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground & Nico
Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced
Jimi Hendrix Experience - Axis: Bold As Love
The Beatles - Sgt Pepper
Cream - Disraeli Gears
Small Faces - Small Faces
The Yardbirds - Little Games
Pink Floyd - The Piper at the Gates of Dawn
The Kinks - Something Else

Just as an addendum to this discussion, Richard Morton Jack has just posted this online: what he thinks is the only copy still in existence of the poster produced to advertise FC's release in the UK in Feb '68.  Nice, eh?
