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.

I couldn't agree more. Grohl is an absolute madman on that album, and I think A Song for the Dead is probably the best rock song in the last ten years. It's incredibly driving with Josh focusing on his guitar and Dave beating the **** out of the drums.

Doggystyle, for the era it was released in, was a perfect record.

And for all those posting "Cowboys from Hell", "Vulgar Display of Power" was superior.

This is not open for debate.

I know I save quotes of people talking about bands they like that I personally dislike. That way I can bring it up in the future to try and make some pretentious too-cool-for-the-room point about their musical taste. You know, because it's not mine.

if i really had to pick one, i'd say Metallica - Master of Puppets would be my "perfect" album.

if a "perfect" album is such that every song on the album is great or good then that list will grow quite a bit.

Some brilliant choices in here - Tool, Muse, NIN, Jimi, Radiohead etc. I'll add some more:

*Goes off to check on amazon*

it's this jazz fusion band. i can't handle jazz, but romantic warrior has a greater emphasis on rock... it's still quite jazzy though. a good mix. when i first heard it, i was like "wow this sounds like ****ing castlevania." now i don't know whether you consider that a good thing or a bad thing, but i consider that THE BEST THING. the hooks are so addicting--it's infectious. you'll find yourself in the store or something and you'll be humming it... or in my case, making little noises out of your mouth in rhythm to the groove in your head. especially in the case of "duel of the jester and the tyrant." it helps when all the band members are absolute virtuosos. and yeah, the song titles are corny, but there's no singing so the songs can be anything you want really. it's still fantasy baulshit to me though.
