Perfect Albums

What are your perfect albums?

By that I mean, which albums can you listen to from start to finish without skipping a song?, What have not one single fault that you can find with it, right down to track order and album length, lyrics, even artwork and possibly it's concept/s. Albums which tick every single box.

It's a tough one, I'm posting this now and thinking about it myself.

I have quite a few...

Tool - Aenima

Nirvana - Nevermind

Alice In Chains - Dirt

Jeff Buckley - Grace

Children Of Bodom - Hate Crew Deathroll

In Flames - Clayman

Pearl Jam - Ten

I could put more, as there are quite a few were pretty much every thing hits your criteria. Better for me would be the ones that made you go "wow" when you heard them, and then I could narrow it down, but I did that thread a little while ago.

If I had to choose one out of the above though, I'd probably go with Grace.

Kind of Blue by Miles Davis, and possibly Birth of the Cool depending on your opinion of "Darn that Dream." Every other album I've ever heard has at least one track that could have been removed or replaced and the album would have been better off because of it.

Off the top of my head...

36 Crazyfists - Bitterness The Star

Metallica - Master of Puppets

Sevendust - Animosity

Nonpoint - Development

Our Lady Peace - Clumsy

Finger Eleven - Greyest of Blue Skies

Rage Against The Machine - Rage Against The Machine

I usually don't listen to an old CD from start to finish very often (because eventually you've heard every song a ton of times and just want to get to the ones you have an itch to listen to) but I could easily listen to any of these albums without skipping a track.

I can only really think of one and that's "American Idiot" by Green Day.

Every single song on there is brilliant, and only song that can get annoying at times is American Idiot, but that song is still very good.

These aren't perfect albums but i'm answering through the definition of it given by the first poster.

There are quite a few albums i listen to every song without skipping one. The artwork is something i don't care about so i'll just list the albums that i like the most and don't skip a song.

AFI - The Art Of Drowning

Ash - 1977

At The Drive-In - Relationship Of Command

Bad Brains - I Against I

Bad Religion - No Control

Black Flag - Damaged

The Clash - The Clash

The Clash - London Calling

Dead Kennedys - Fresh Fruit For Rotten Vegetables

Descendents - Milo Goes To College

Fugazi - Repeater

Good Riddance - Symptoms of a Levelling Spirit

Ignite - A Place Called Home (my favourite lead singer, some of my favourite lyrics, and one of the albums where i actually like its artwork)

Mad Caddies - Just One More

Nirvana - Nevermind

NOFX - Punk In Drublic

Pennywise - Full Circle (for what it meant)

The Offspring - Ignition

Rancid - Let's Go

Rancid - Life Won't Wait

Rise Against - Revolutions Per Minute

Sick Of It All - Blood, Sweat & No Tears

Skatalites - Scattered Lights

Sparta - Porcelain (their best song IMO isn't in this album though)

The Specials - The Specials

Sublime - Sublime

Thrice - The Illusion Of Safety

Toasters - Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down

Weezer - Weezer (the Blue One)

There are probably dozens of others i don't skip a song but maybe i don't like those that much.

I'll end this saying once again that this list is so long because i'm yet to listen to a perfect album. But these do satisfy the retrictions of the first poster, whoever he was, i don't remember, sorry :blush: .
