Default Albums you think are perfect?

While music is very subjective, I feel there are more than a few albums out there that are "perfect." Can easily listen to them start to finish with no interruptions, they get you feeling a certain type of way.

Born To Run by Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, is one of them in my opinion. Boston's Self Titled Release, also fits the bill for me. I can easily put either one of those albums on, listen to it straight through with no problem. Anyone else have Albums they feel this way about?

Pink Floyd- “Wish you were here”
In my opinion, the other huge albums (DSOTM & The Wall) have a few weaker moments. To me, WYWH is perfect.

Is it cheating to include Jethro Tull “Thick as a Brick”?

Honorable mention to David Gray’s “White Ladder” that just flows from song to song with no misses.

Great post, I’m hoping to hear many others’ opinions here!

This is a great topic. I would say that The Who's "Who's Next" and the Rolling Stones "Let it Bleed" are 2 are albums I can easily listen to and enjoy every song on them.

An honorable mention for me would be "Led Zeppelin II".

I also agree Boston's self titled album would be another classic album that's good from start to finish.

Nice to see another DG fan here. He's terrific, and underappreciated.


To the original post....The Beatles' Rubber Soul fills that bill for me. As do What's Going On from Marvin Gaye and Billy Joel's The Stranger.

Default Perfect Albums?

A few hot takes:

1) A Farewell to Kings- Rush
2) Aja- Steely Dan ( There are other Dan fans I see!)
3) Electric Ladyland- Jimi Hendrix Experience

Rush - Moving Pictures
Rush- Permanent Waves

Give a listen to Natural Science on Permanent Waves. It got no airplay on the radio but is a great song

If you have not figured it out yet, Rush is my favorite group. RIP Neil Peart.

Also, I agree with Boston’s debut Album.

Thanks

Duane

Great call on Jesus Christ Superstar, must have listened to that Full Album at least 200-300 times (I listen to a shit ton of full albums) in the past 10 years alone. Tremendous intro!!!! Total jam session......and Love how it ends to...great dramatic effect.

I believe that's Ian Gillian of Deep Purple as JC

Good stuff...

+1 to Wish You Were Here, What's Goin' On, and Who's Next

Surprised Hotel California hasn't been mentioned. I will say the songs hit home a little harder as you get older.

I'll add a couple that probably won't be on anyone else's list but all I can say is give a listen, start to finish in proper track order...

Neil Diamond - Hot August Night

The Carpenters - Now and Then

To BobbyStrawberry aka Matthew- I chose AFTK because too many people choose Moving Pictures or 2112. AFTK contains Xanadu, which is musical perfection, so I named it. ALL Rush is great, the list could simply be Rush- this isn't an all Rush forum though

AC/DC- Powerage
Montrose-self titled
Dave Brubeck-Take Five
Tom Petty & the heartbreakers-self titled
Led Zepplin 1
Patsy Cline-greatest hits
Green Day- American Idiot
Pink Floyd-WYWH

There's a few off the top of my head. I love music.

I'd like to add 3 more albums to my previous selections. The first album is Deep Purple's "Machine Head". The second is a 2 album set from Lynyrd Skynyrd, "One More from the Road". Lastly the self titled release from "Blind Faith".

There's been some great albums mentioned in this thread, I just thought I'd add a few more.

Fascinating how many metal guys on the board. I consider myself to have really eclectic musical tastes, but have just never gotten into real metal. I recall in high school I won two tickets from a radio station to see a double bill of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest at the Nassau Coliseum. I guess they were alternating who opened and that night it was Iron Maiden. I remember we left at intermission and as we walked through the parking lot my ears were ringing in pain like I had stood next to a jumbo jet revving its engine for the last hour. I thought the decibel level was just insane.

I did see Boston at Nassau Coliseum on their first ever tour and that was amazing. First time I had ever seen someone smoking one of those funny cigarettes. Hell, in those days you could hardly see the stage due to the massive cloud of smoke down near the stage. Wish I still had the tee shirt of the album cover.

Concerning the ringing, Tinnitus is the absolute worst. I suffer from a mild case of it, too many concerts with not enough hearing protection. It's annoying but I've gotten used to it.

Some of the best Concerts I've seen were Metal. Iron Maiden put on one of the best shows I've ever got to see in person. Sabbath as well, I got to see them back in 2016, Ozzy still sounded solid and the crowd was intense.

It kills me that I never got to see Brad Delp in Boston. His voice was incredible. Absolute Tragedy.

Billion Dollar Babies, besides being a GREAT album the whole concept of the billfold (simulated alligator at that) and the pullout dollar bill was outstanding. Alice did rule for a 2 -3 year period back then.

I'm not sure any are really perfect. Some of my favorites aren't for sure.

Blizzard of Ozz

Don't say no- Billy Squier Maybe not perfect, but with at least half the album getting airplay it's close. It was also the tour for the first real concert i went to

Are you experienced - Hendrix

Klaatu "3:47EST" and maybe "Hope"

And in the almost perfect gag category
Blotto - Combo Akimbo (Unntentional?)

S.O.D. - Speak English or die. (Intentional!)

A bunch are close.

Good call on Pet Sounds, Peter. One crisp, clean album is “Sound of Silver” by LCD Soundsystem.

A Christmas Gift for You

The late Phil Spector
Absolute Psychopath but produced incredible Albums. We have him to thank for the "Wall of Sound" technique. There's a reason why "Be My Baby" is so catchy

Their early hardcore stuff too? I saw them a few times before they hit big in rap. Egg Raid on Mojo.

Crime of the Century was better, and makes my list.

There are a couple of gimmes listed thus far, IMO. Who's Next and Born to Run
can't miss, and I really see nothing wrong with Wish you Were Here, Blood on the Tracks and Hotel California. Also no objection here to Excitable Boy.

Personally I prefer Pretzel Logic to any other Steely Dan album.

Eat a Peach belongs, although Mountain Jam is just too damn long.

Talking Heads Stop Making Sense is an incredible live album, but Skynard, REO, and Cheap Trick are close.

If you're ever real introspective, Jackson Browne's The Pretender is amazing and list worthy.

I'm going with "Rattle & Hum" by U2.

Covers of the Beatles and Bob Dylan. Dylan on another track. BB King showing off the pipes. A taste of Hendrix. A homage to Martin Luther King Jr.

A mixed studio/live album, with a mix of musical styles and voices, that just "works".

Oh, and it's worth noting that coming off the success of Joshua Tree, the album DIDN'T include what was just about the biggest son on the planet "With or Without You".

Ah, good fun.
