Most important astronomical publications

I'm interested to hear input on this. Some I know of:
Cardelli, Clayton, Mathis 1989 - determined interstellar extinction law
Kurucz 1993 - possibly a book? Stellar atmosphere calculations

Hinshaw et al 2009 - WMAP5 results (quoting your cosmology)
AGN^2 - anything w/gas in space, apparently


Do annual reviews count? Sanders and Mirabel 1996 is a must-read.
