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.

Ha! That's great! I'm fully obsessed with that album at this point. Trying to find someone to go with me to see them in Toronto in February, but none of my friends have any taste.

Thanks for this guys. Just pick up the Beth's. Loving it!

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).

I certainly don't get the Beths, sounds like every other garbage song of the day. Grating vocals. Better than rap I guess. I'm going back to LZ.

It's not really a stereotype.

It makes total sense that old people, would like a band that was popular a half-century ago.

Amy wine house back to black. It feels like she is singing to me.

I can’t find a better record in recent memory.

I even love rehab. Love the song. Love.

Did you watch that Amy Winehouse documentary. It was quite sad, but very well done. She was a huge talent.

Me too! Went out and bought it the day after seeing them blow the roof off the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach CA back in ‘81 I think. Awesome band and what a show.

I haven’t thought about the Golden Bear in many years. I went there to see BB King in 83. Tiny intimate club and he was amazing

Quoted from gweempose:

I need to watch that. When I listened to back to Black I sort of fell in love with Amy wine house.

I knew her days were numbered though. Not how numbered exactly.

When I say I fell in love with her I don't mean personally or even physically. It was something else.

It is love, though. We don't exactly understand its power yet.

Blah blah blah , perfect album. Almost perfect, anyways.

Quoted from Dee-Bow:

Although I've known of them for many years, I only really discovered them live a few years ago when they came through town. I've seen hundreds of shows and I don't think I've ever been as impressed as the first time I saw them. My jaw dropped and I had goosebumps from the first seconds and it was one of the best live shows I've ever seen.
One of the 2 times I've seen them they were touring arenas opening for Blue Rodeo, but they took their day off to come play in front of 80 people on a Monday night in Quebec City. Both times I've seen them some of the guys came out in the room to listen to the opening act for almost the whole show. I've never seen any other big band do that. To me they're the greatest Canadian band today period (I exclude Neil Young but he's not a band )

This album captures the live experience pretty well I think:

I've listened to the last 3 albums a lot (Northern Passages, Internal Sounds, Darker Circles) and I've grown to love them, but almost as a different thing from the live band.

Hum albums: You’d Prefer an Astronaut, Downward is Heavenward, and Inlet.

3 albums in a row, perfect from start to finish.

I listened to all of these over the past week or so, and remain certain all could easily be considered "perfect" (though that is subjective of course):

HUGE thumbs up for the Spock's album! (although it is a bit generous to call The Light "modern" Neal's later albums are also really good when they don't get too preachy.

I'm checking out that "Artemis" record. Thanks!

Yeah, I suppose “modern” is a stretch for something that was released 28 years ago, LOL!

I think the Transatlantic and Flying Colors albums are Neal’s best latter-day works. His solo stuff is nothing short of phenomenal in terms of musical achievement, but I feel the songwriting is a bit too literal and “easy” (if that makes sense); I’ve listened to classic albums like “Close to the Edge”, “Foxtrot”, “In the Land of Grey and Pink”, and “Octopus” scores of times, and the fact that I STILL haven’t fully penetrated and deciphered the lyrics is part of what keeps me coming back for more!

If you like the Beard, you will almost certainly dig Echolyn too. This one-song 50-minute masterpiece of an album also qualifies as “perfect”, just astonishingly good in every aspect and everything we love about Prog:

Totally agree re: Transatlantic / FC. amazing those 2 bands are able to keep it going after so long, and with the same guys AND with their crazy “main” bands schedules.

Will check out Echolyn; I’ve heard their name but haven’t dived in yet.

Very psyched for LTE3!
