Give me an absolute PERFECT album.

No crap songs, no filler tracks.

If ANY track sucks, DON'T POST THE ALBUM.

Somewhere in the mid 90s, record companies started putting 17 tracks on albums rather than the traditional 8 or 9 - so extra points for anyone that can find a perfect disc with that many tracks.

No "best of" or compilations, obviously (you know somebody would try it).

I'll start the game off with a truly perfect disc, Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs.

8 perfect songs, perfectly mixed, if you have good headphones this is the place to try them out.

The whole disc is tuned down to Eb, so Trower gets his "evil Jimi Hendrix" vibe going full bore.

Stadium Arcadium has 28 songs and I like at least 17 of them. Does that count?

#6 1 year ago

Partial to Abbey Road or Sgt. Peppers.

To through this Canadian Album out here. Jerry Doucette "Mama Let Him Play". Blues, many of the songs go together.

To cover all bases, Bat Out of Hell.

#7 1 year ago

The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Let's Face It. I'm not even a huge ska fan but it's honestly really good.

#9 1 year ago

For me U2, The Joshua Tree. It's got classics and the great deep cuts. But like all things your milage may vary

#10 1 year ago

Damn the Torpedoes.
Rumours.
Purple Rain
DSOTM

#11 1 year ago

Appetite For Destruction... although I do kinda hate Think About You and My Michelle.

#12 1 year ago

For a perfect hard rock album. Black Sabbath's Heaven and Hell.

Sabbath finally got rid of that clown Ozzy, and got the greatest singer in the history of music; Ronnie James Dio.

This allowed Sabbath to create their greatest album.

8 perfect tracks.

Wolfmother self titled first album with original lineup. no fillers and every song is different and great.

Bob Marley Legends, not sure if it should count though since its a best of

#17 1 year ago

A perfect heavy metal album Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast.

My drummer give me this disc a few weeks before it came out and I was just blown away.

Caviar's self titled first album is smart power pop perfection

#20 1 year ago

Presidents of the United States of America

Any album.

#21 1 year ago

Devin Townsend's Ocean Machine: Biomech

#22 1 year ago

OK Computer

Yesss! By far my favorite full album.

Also, Dark Side of the Moon. Though that might just be because my parents dragged me to so many laser light shows as a kid. To this day, I can't listen to a single song without wanting to hear the full album.

#24 1 year ago

Butthole Surfers - Independent worm saloon

#25 1 year ago

Perfect for me. Offspring Smash.

STP sex type thing is close but there are certainly two filler songs I don't mind but I feel they do detract from the rest of the album's overall feeling.

#26 1 year ago

Husker Du - New Day Rising / Zen Arcade

Lemonheads - Its a shame about Ray

#27 1 year ago

Perfect Horror Punk

With just a touch of my burning hand
I send my astro zombies to rape the land
Prime directive: exterminate the whole human race
And your face drops in a pile of flesh
And then your heart, heart pounds
Till it pumps in death
Prime directive: exterminate whatever stands left

All I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you

And all I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you

Oh, all I want to know
All I want

With just a touch of my burning hand
Im gonna live my life to to destroy your world
Prime directive: exterminate the whole fnckin' race

Then your face drops in a pile of flesh
And then your heart, heart pounds
And it pumps in death
Prime directive: exterminate the whole fnckin' place well

All I wanted to say
And all I gotta do
Who'd I do this for
Hey, me or you

Piece of Mind for me, once Nicko joined it was off to the races!

I'm partial to Queensryche's Operation Mindcrime (if we go back to the late 80's). A rock opera with 15 tracks...

I'd have to do verification for others I'm thinking of.

Really??

I love the way the vocals drop on the last note of "In-Vade ----Ers"

But like my grandfather always said "To each his own, said the lady as she kissed her cow" (rough translation).

#34 1 year ago

So many vid.

I remember wearing out Rainbow Rising thru the grooves.

Haha that's the part that always comes to mind for me too. That's my least favorite song on that album - it does get in your head though, and specifically because of that part. But they added that song at the last minute in place of Total Eclipse, originally recorded for NOTB - and which is a better song IMO.

Steely Dan's "Aja"

Easily among the most sonically refined albums of all time--if not the most refined. Every song (all 7 of them) is tasteful, well crafted, and supremely well versed. While not my personal favorite, I think it's their best.
