Beefing up my dc trade paper back and hardcover collection and wondering what people's top 20 dc books are. May help me with what to buy first and what people consider is there must have books?

Grants work is long running and has a lot of back referencing. I have read Final Crisis and the Batman run but I want to know more about the multi verse before I read this series. What are must reads on the multiverse in setting up a nice foundation of knowledge going into this series? Does seven soldiers and 52 countdown omnibus help? And what stories help explain the monitors and the new gods further?
Having read this issue, i now fear for the future of X-Comics. This event was supposedly one that'd make all the X-Men rethink their own prospective as the landscape would've been changed beyond comprehension, but all this running around culminated in: Aaron's Wolverine being preachy about the JGS even though its purpose has been contradicted, Jean dying for the 565867417280th time (while complaining about Scott and Logan's age-old pissing contest), some irrelevant future X-Men dying and Kitty's final grandiose speech of how the JGS faculty couldn't trust her followed by a whiny departure on unsubstantiated grounds. She even cried, lmfao.
No explanation for what, exactly, happened in the future x-men's present to justify the vehement sending back of the O5, no explanation for why the O5 were unable to go back and no explanation for Xorna's malfunction.
What was the point? *shrugs*
I mean, are comic book fans actually clamoring for this stuff ?
Agreed the whole thing was a mess
