What do you think are perfect albums from beginning to end? Not necessarily your favorite bands, just great albums that flow from one song to the next.
Mine:

Pink Floyd: Dark side of the moon.
Tool: Aenima

Radiohead: OK Computer

Love the Tool reference, that title track is my favorite from them. Surprised by the two dream theatre references, guess I have to go back and listen to them again. Liked them back in the day, but remember them as kind of the peak of synthesized music.

In no particular order, here are my favorites for listening beginning to end:

Pink Floyd-The Wall
Led Zeppelin-I, II and IV
The Who-Who's Next
AC/DC-Back in Black
Metallica-And Justice for All
Meatloaf-Bat out of Hell
Rush-Moving Pictures
Bruce Springsteen-Born to Run
Willie Nelson-Stardust
The Rolling Stones-Let it Bleed
Iron Maiden-Number of the Beast
The Beatles-Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
Lynyrd Skynyrd-Second Helping
Boston-Boston
The Band-The Band
The Clash-London Calling
Muddy Waters-Hard Again
Ozzy Osbourne-Blizzard of Ozz

I did not include any "greatest hits" albums, that would be too easy.

About 4 Beatles albums, Paul's Boutique (Beastie Boys), Low End Theory (Tribe Called Quest), Blue Album (Weezer), Back in Black (AC/DC), Illinois (Sufjan Stevens), Blood Sugar Sex Magik (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Pack Up The Cats (Local H), Peace Love Death Metal (Eagles of Death Metal), (What's The Story) Morning Glory (Oasis), Funkentelechy vs. the Placebo Syndrome (Parliament), Funeral (Arcade Fire), 3:16 (Murs & 9th Wonder), Disraeli Gears (Cream), Black on Both Sides (Mos Def), Antics (Interpol), The Bake Sale (The Cool Kids), Rage Against the Machine (RATM, obviously), Rubber Factory (The Black Keys), Supreme Clientele (Ghostface), You're a Woman, I'm a Machine (Death From Above 1979), Donuts (J Dilla), Graduation (Kanye West), Black Holes and Revelations (Muse), Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde (The Pharcyde), Presidents of the United States of America I (Presidents of the USA), Radical (Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All), Songs for the Deaf (Queens of the Stoneage), Heavy Weather (Weather Report).

I really agree with this, but I gave in at some point. Once I realized that gigs were piling on gigs on my computer, it was either always have an external drive around for music or give up on the 20 album soul/R&B/funk/jazz discographies and download some anthologies instead. It still bugs me to miss out on the album experience, though, because great albums are usually composed in a certain way that you miss with mixes.

With that said...let me add Down to Earth by Stevie Wonder as one album that I think is just about perfect. There are others, but I can't think of them now. It's overload.

So true! Have you seen the documentary on the making of Bruce Springsteen's Darkness on the Edge of Town? You see how much the engineer and band agonized over just the order of songs on the album.

OK, sometimes a significant period in your life has a "soundtrack" that has a very heavy impact on ones psyche. Given that, I still think that this is a very special album:
"Looking In", by the Savoy Brown Blues Band.

You guys have already mentioned a few of mine, so I will only list the ones that you missed:lol2:
Led Zeppelin, Physical Graffiti
Rolling Stones, Exile on Main Street and Get Your Ya Ya's Out
Beatles, Revolver (Revolution 9 prevents the listing of the white album as "perfect" LOL)
Jimi Hendrix, Axis; Bold as Love
Rush, All The World's A Stage.
Allman Brothers Band, At The Fillmore
Manassas, Manassas (arguably Stephen Stills at the height of his powers)
Fleetwood Mac, Then Play On (at least the Peter Green penned parts of it)
Genesis, The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
Aerosmith, Rocks (a candidate for the best American hard rock guitar album of all time)
ZZ Top, Tres Hombres. (that Little Old Band from Texas was ALWAYS at their best when they were singing about their misspent youth and much of that record was just that)
Peter Frampton, Frampton Comes Alive.
Van Halen, Van Halen. Boston's debut record may still be one of the best selling of all time, but this one kicked your front door in and took over your house for a year long kegger.
Richard Thompson, Rumour and Sigh, Shoot OUt the Lights (with ex-wife Linda on the second one)
Johnny Winter, Captured Live
John Hiatt, Slow Turning
Jethro Tull, Aqualung
Elton John, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
and some odds choices considering the rest of my list
Glenn Gould, Goldberg Variations ( the 1982 version)
John Coltrane, My Favorite Things
Hank Williams, Luke the Drifter (a compilation, I know, but they didn't do albums when he was alive. A record that challenges even Closer by Joy Division for the title of "music to slash your wrists by" LOL)
Johnny Cash, At Folsom Prison.

Live albums count for sure!!!! Anyone who has not heard any of the AC/DC live albums (there are 4 or 5, I think, 3 or 4 total with Bon Scott and the big double record with Brian Johnson which may be one of the best recorded live albums ever) ) has missed out.

In my top 3 favorite songs of all time (along with peter gabriel's sledgehammer and kmfdm's juke joint jezebel) I think its the best guitar solo ever. Large words, I know, but it has the right amount of space and exactness between notes without sounding soulless.

Pearl Jam - Ten

Zappa - overnight sensation & '
Violent Femmes- self title


+1000 on both of these. amazing, amazing albums.


4 non Blondes-what's up


+1 Was so sorry they broke up, they had a really good vibe and Linda Perry had (has) an astonishingly powerful voice.



Sublime-40oz to Freedom
Metallica-Master of Puppets


Actually, both of Sublime's big release albums were amazing. Hard to choose between them. This is my favorite Metallica album though...

Also:

Shoukichi Kina, Peppermint Tea house (Okinawan Folk/Rock Fusion)
The Aquabats, The Return of the Aquabats (their first album...and one of the gems of 3rd wave ska).
The Dead Milkmen, Beelzebubba

I have a fairly wide-ranging taste in music, at any given moment I can be listening to classic jazz, classic reggae, "alternative" from the 70s through the 90s, classic rock, current indie and alt-rock, classic hip-hop, or even bluegrass. Not a fan of any top-40 from any decade, nor country nor soul/R&B.

For jazz: Kind of Blue, Something Else!, and A Love Supreme all come as close to perfection as can be.

I love many sound tracks from movies. They often have bands that I have never heard of, and get interested in. Many of them are cool mixes that I wouldn't buy the album that most of the music is on. some of them are:

Natural Born Killers
Rock star
The Lost Boys
Queen of the Damned
Fast and the Furious (the second disc)
