Just to mix it up a bit...I listen to this album at least a few times a month. Think Amy Winehouse meets Carole King. Great songs every one.
asking a bunch of 40-70 year olds for a recent perfect album is....well. In turn, trying to suggest music is the same.
I don't know of many 'perfect' albums since taste is very subjective. For me, it might be Queensryche: Operation Mindcrime. I seem to recall that Live: Throwing Copper seemed pretty solid throughout at the time but it has been ages since I've listened to it. While in my ever increasing age I still listen and like newly released music by bands that didn't start playing 30-50 years ago, I can't say I've found anything that stands out as great throughout the entire album in quite some time.
Quoted from vid1900:
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).
