    The thread about RHCP Blood Sugar Sex Magick has me wondering... What do you consider a perfect record, all the way through?

    I'd start with Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here for the easy ones

    Then Radiohead- Ok Computer


    What about y'all? What album runs straight through without letting up for you?

    In my opinion...the most pure perfect rock album every recorded. There isn't one weak moment and the recorded performance is perfect.

    The Who - Who's Next

    Animals is my favorite Floyd record, but I was hesitant to call it perfect, since sheep and dogs have those long near intermission sections of atmospheric keyboard playing.

    This is an easy one - the first three Ramones albums. All three, from beginning to end, perfect.

    Mine, too. And even with all those noodly bits, it all works for me. And Gilmour is a straight beast on that record.

    Without any doubt. It's Gilmour's guitar work on that one that makes it my favorite.

    Two very underrrated albums.

    I saw Supertramp on the Crime tour. They were the first band I ever saw that lugged a multi-media show on tour, and the mix was pristine.

    And Wizard? I was a huge Nazz fan growing up in Philly, loved the first two TR solo albums. But when Wizard dropped, it took me a minute to wrap my head around it. It just pushed so many boundaries, including the amount of music that could be squeezed on to a 12" slab of vinyl. Mad genius.

    Lots of obvious ones already mentioned. I’ll add a couple of my “must listen all the way through” records, which is what I think of as “perfect”.
    Red Headed Stranger-W Nelson
    Patti Smith-Horses

    Not his only perfect album, either:
