METAMORFOSI, Inferno - 9/11. Happened to be listening to it at the time and getting into it a lot. Now I think of The Disintegration Loops by William Basinski which is a bit obvious.
Yes, Close To The Edge; Genesis, Selling England By The Pound; Tool, Lateralus - Freshman year of college fall soundtrack. As for the movies I associate with that year...well I liked to go to any movie shown at the student union because they were free, so now I have perversely happy memories of American Pie and (God help me) Legally Blonde.
My Bloody Valentine, Loveless - Driving home from school after finishing freshman year of college--that's always been my drive-home, end-of-semester music.
Pixies, Surfer Rosa & Bossanova - Sophomore year soundtrack.
But really I associate ANY album I love with the time I purchased it...
