I think this is where our points of view differ too greatly to ever agree on tongue.gif

 

I must admit my text migth come as really black & white. I don't want worse songs on my albums, but let's take for an example that many times mentioned Fitter, happier on Radiohead's OK Computer. And, was it Treefingers on Kid A, the interlude? Those both will count these two wonderful albums out of the question completely for you, correct me if I'm mistaken. They appear 'ugly' and pointless compared to the other songs (Treefingers is not ugly, Fitter happier is.) But to me, and I believe a good number of others, they are extremely important movements within the album. Neccessities.

 

btw. added youtube links on the Finnish albums on previous page. Good stuff, especially the pink onesmile.gif

Nice post beerchug.gif

Edm'ers

 

Brotherhood by the chemical brothers

Fat of land - the prodigy

imagine - armin van buuren

Just be - tiesto

oceanlab - sirens of the sea

post #682 of 748

Mount Eerie - Lost Wisdom.

Short and sweet lo-fi goodness that never ceases to amaze me. Easily my most favourite album.

 

Mono - For My Parents.

Orchestral Post-Rock with lots of dynamics. Goosebumps throughout, epic music in the most literal sense of the word.

post #683 of 748

Here's a few that come to mind (some of which are probably mentioned ad nauseam):

 

Pink Floyd, The Wall

Genesis, A Trick of the Tail

Boston, Boston

Jethro Tull, Aqualung

Jethro Tull, Thick as a Brick

Kansas, Song For America

Kansas, Leftoverture

Rick Wakeman, The Six Wives Of Henry VIII

Steely Dan, Can't Buy A Thrill

The Moody Blues, Days Of Future Passed

The Who, Quadrophenia

Yes, Close to the Edge

 

I wanted to put Peter Gabriel's first album on here (I'm listening to it right now), but there are a couple real clunkers on there. Also, looking at that list, it looks pretty generic. Maybe I need to branch out a bit?

Close to the Edge, as originally released, is great....I never skip any part of it.

So many of people's suggestions here in the thread don't work for me....most every album seems to have at least one song that doesn't measure up to the others, but CTTE is a winner....excepting the re-release with extra tracks( I don't load the extra tracks on my DAPs).

I think I listened to the extra tracks once. I'm not sure who actually listens to this stuff multiple times. New material, maybe. Demos? Almost certainly one and done.

 

Thick as a Brick is kind of cheating on my part, since's it's all one song. A single, 44-minute song. I suppose if you didn't like the second part you could skip the second track, but I never do.

 

I had the same problem as you when thinking about things to put on this list. There are quite a few albums I have where there's just one or two songs that aren't very good.

post #686 of 748

The Music of America - Wynton Marsalis

 

Is one of the best albums I have heard.

It sounds exceptional with my 650's also exceptional with the v6 ( Not anywhere close to the 650's but nice to mention )

post #687 of 748

We should split this thread into two different "eras"

 

For example, flawless albums prior to 1990, and flawless albums post 1990.

I love this album. I immediately fell in love with it upon first listen and perhaps one of my, if not the, favorite Supercell album ever released. :-)

post #689 of 748

I've lost count of the number of times I've listened to this all the way through and I'm still moved by it.

post #690 of 748

If it hasn't been said a million times before, it hasn't been said enough: Journey's Escape....and Frontiers for that matter.
