I'm talking about albums in which every single track is great with no flaws. And you can use music from all different genres, but "greatest hits" and "best of" albums don't count because they're meant to be perfect with all the best songs of an artist. Here are mine (in no particular order):

1) Michael Jackson-Thriller
2) Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-E. 1999 Eternal
3) Dr. Dre-The Chronic
4) Snoop Doggy Dogg-Doggystyle
5) 2Pac-All Eyez On Me
6) Big L-Lifestylez Ov Da Poor & Dangerous
7) Ghostface Killah-Ironman
8) Bone Thugs-N-Harmony-The Art Of War
9) Dr. Dre-2001
10) The Pharcyde-Bizarre Ride II The Pharcyde

That's just 10 off the top of my head, but there's still more...

I don't honestly believe the perfect album exists, so I don't have a list without "greatest hits" or "best of" albums. Maybe next time.

Oh....what an excellent topic! Okay, following the precedent set by my fellow members, this list is in no particular order:

1) R.E.M. 'Fables of the Reconstruction'
2) Alice in Chains 'Jar of Flies'
3) MC 900 Ft. Jesus 'Welcome to My Dream'
4) XTC 'Oranges and Lemons'
5) Filter 'Title of Record'
6) Jerry Cantrell 'Boggy Depot'
7) Talking Heads 'Speaking in Tongues'
8) Ghandarvas 'Sold for a Smile'
9) Blinker the Star 'August Everywhere'
10) Red Hot Chili Peppers 'Californication'

It was so hard to narrow it down to ten! Many of my favourite bands are missing, but I was trying to follow the rule of allowing only albums (CDs?) with non-stop excellent tracks, and no filler.

Oh Vermic...

How did I forget 'Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables'? (Please forgive me Jello.) It's one of my all-time favourites! While I'm here, I should add 'Junior Relaxer' by King Cobb Steelie (Not to be confused with anything resembling Steely Dan music....uggghhh *shudder*). Okay that puts me at twelve, and I haven't even scratched the surface. Perhaps I should make an attempt to add a post to the 'top fifty' thread that's kicking around here somewhere... [Roll Eyes]
