Yup. Perfectly defines a perfect album to me.

And for reference, I consider the following albums perfect as well...







What do you guys judge your "perfect" albums by? <3

Calling any piece of art 'perfect' is an abominable insult. Art is by definition imperfect.

COUNTER ELITIST MODE WITH ANAL ELITIST MODE

By definition?
One can argue that humans, being imperfect beings, cannot create perfection (at least Plato did).
But if we take 'perfect' as 'something I would not change a note in', I can think of quite a few albums that meet this criteria.
Granted, it has more to do with me than the album itself, but that's true for every observation about art, isn't it?

He took a while to grow on me too, and I'm European :p. If it never clicks, too bad for you, he's amazing. But yeah tastes are fickle. I think we all have popular or respected artists we can't get into. For me it's Pink Floyd, for you Bob Dylan

That Aphex Twin album you posted is a collection? Doesn't count.

Also, I love how Floyd has three albums that are considered perfect by different people, and a fourth that is arguably the best double album ever.

Well Rated R was my favorite from them for a while, but I think I lean more towards Songs for the Deaf nowadays. All their albums are great though, with their latest unfortunately being the weakest.

Yeah I guess it is a collection... still he never did release any of the songs featured on the album... so its not like it was a best hits album. If it doesn't count then I would just replace it with the Richard David James Album or I Care Because You Do.

Pink Floyd has flawless records, they are the gods of making consistent cohesive albums.

I feel very strongly about Songs for the Deaf. If you ask me it's the album of the 00's, or whatever this wacky decade is called. It's not just that every song is a badass mother****er, but it keeps moving in this fast Spartan tempo, with one killer riff after the other. QOTSA keeps on churning out consistent and awesome albums (with every one of them having a distinct style!), but Songs for the Deaf is the one for me.

Yea, I wasn't sure, that's why I didn't say "Greatest Hits." If that's the first album all those songs were released on and they were grouped together that way for a reason, I guess that's why it's so awesome.

And yea, nobody creates albums like Floyd.

Like a year or so ago, or whenever I did the GAF survey, the Beatles had like 5 of the top 10 albums of all-time according to the 50 who voted so I wouldn't complain.
