    Perfect albums

    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
    Neutral Milk Hotel: Aeroplane over the sea
    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.
