These are the only albums I can think of without a single weak song.

I think there's a difference between what we think are perfect albums and what our favorites are.

Also a pretty good topic for people who want to get into music.

Heh...amazing how my two picks for perfect albums are spoken for before the 15th post.

I don't pick 'DSOTM' because there's a couple of tunes I'm not crazy about, but structally and as an overall package it's very well made. Same is true for 'Meddle' and 'The Wall'. Few artists or bands made albums the way Pink Floyd did in terms of being one complete suite or piece (pretty much every album they created from the third album on was a concept), and I think that's a reason why their albums are so well regarded, while for most other artists and bands it's their singles that get most of the pub.

I'd also give these two albums some consideration...

Nothing wrong with that...some of the best albums ever recorded were debuts (note: these are not my picks for the thread, just highlighting my favourite debut discs).

There are other albums I absolutely adore, like Matthew Good's 'Avalanche', Led Zeppelin's first six albums, Rolling Stones' 'Let It Bleed' and 'Exile On Main Street', Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours', Rush's Signals, 'Permenant Waves' and 'Moving Pictures' and U2's first six studio albums, but I wouldn't classify them as perfect...just all damn good (though 'Avalanche' is creeping closer to that mark for me).

Hilarious. There's 10 times more Tool & late 70s rock posted in this thread than anything else combined.

Anyway, we have this thread about once every two weeks, so I'll post basically the same things I always post.

Ween - The Mollusk (but every album they've ever done is fantastic)
New Kingdom - Paradise Don't Come Cheap
Cannibal Ox - The Cold Vein
Blonde Redhead - Fake Can Be Just as Good
Butthole Surfers - Hairway to Steven
Sonic Youth - Washing Machine (though this is always up for debate with me, I like 'em all)
The Wrens - The Meadowlands
Hot Snakes - Suicide Invoice

I'd include Drive this Seven Inch Stake Through My Philadelphia Heart by Ink & Dagger as it's pretty much incredible, but alas it's basically two 7" compiled onto CD. Frown.

I mean, my list is Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and Pink Floyd. The only good music ever has to be guitar rock from the 70s.

Major props on mentioning The Mollusk, also.

To me a perfect album is just one in which I don't want to skip any of the songs whatsoever - no filler, all great material. Here's my list

So many great choices in this thread, but if I had to choose only one it would be:



I've never heard another album quite like it. From beginning to end, it takes you on an aural journey that mixes musique concrète, deep lyrics and mind expanding tones. It's like a movie for your mind. For better appreciation, I recommend listening to it from beginning to end and while reading this nifty analysis while you do. You'll appreciate the genius of this album even more.

I start reading a list and think, "Wow, this person has really good taste" -- and then interrupt myself mid-thought when I see a howlingly bad album in the middle of their otherwise good list.
