    The Beattles- The Beattles' Second Album

    AC/DC - Highway to Hell

    Van Halen - Van Halen (debut)

    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV


    Not dead. Yet.

      Fashion Nugget & Blonde on Blonde are right on!  The Femmes album is great too.

       

      Has anybody mention Hotel California yet?  From New Kid in Town to the Last Resort,  every song is a gem.

       

      PS.  Eagles were just added on Spotify!

      How can we know our limits if we don't test them?


      Cool Jump Suit

         

        Van Halen - Van Halen (debut)

         

         

        Finally!  Another VH fan.  Awesome album!

        The kiss goodnight, it comes with me,
        Both wrong and right, our memories. 
        The whispering before we sleep,
        Just one more thing that you can't keep.

        Our favorite place we used to go,
        The warm embrace that no one knows.
        The lovin' look that's left your eyes,
        But I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.

        It's always something...

          I would add Porcupine Tree Fear of a Blank Planet as a more recent perfect album. No weak songs on it, everything is quite listenable and flows together.

              The mean age is definitely up there considering the music taste on here. I mean wheres the 90's?!?  Weezers Blue Album all the friggen way

               

              I thought I covered the 90's pretty well too.

                  You just jogged my memory:

                   

                  10,000 Maniacs - Our Time in Eden

                  "If you have the fire, run..." -John Climacus

                    some pretty good stuff in here...

                     

                    I'd side with Pretty Hate Machine for NIN and for RHCP agree with Blood Sugar Sex Magic.

                     

                    Some less popular but still awesome start to finish:

                    Rollins Band - The End of Silence

                    The Lawrence Arms - Greatest Story Ever Told

                    Jawbreaker - 24 Hour Revenge Therapy

                    Hot Water Music - Fuel for the Hate Game

                     

                    more recently:

                    Lydia - Illuminate

                    RVIVR - s/t

                    Clutch - Earth Rocker

                    Julia1971


                      Good one.  I also forgot...

                       

                      Retrospective - Indigo Girls

                       

                      This may have been a "best of" album, though.  I'm not sure.

                        Sheryl Crow - Sheryl Crow

                        Tuesday Night Music Club - Sheryl Crow

                        Exile in Guyville - Liz Phair

                        whitechocolatespaceegg - Liz Phair

                        The Emancipation of Mimi - Mariah Carey

                         

                        I listed a few by Suzanne Vega. She's still at it doing these great small shows and producing her own records.  I have Sheryl Crow-- it's a great album that I forgot all about when making my list. Not a stinker on there. Another perfect effort by a solo female artist is  Kate Bush's Hounds Of Love. In the relaxation/meditative category of perfect album's there's Enya's Shepard Moons.

                              Good stuff!

                               

                              Someone mentioned Norah Jones too - such a sweet voice.

                               

                              How about Madonna?  Would we put any of her stuff on the list?  (can't say I've seen her mentioned yet... but maybe I missed it).   Ray of Light was something I could listen to in its entirety, but it's not a typical Madonna album either...

                                I thought about Madonna but I usually buy her singles.  I guess her first album was good.  According to Wikipedia, it had Lucky Star, Borderline, and Holiday.  3 pop classics for girls growing up in the 80s.
