    The criteria is simple: Original albums only, no live album, no greatest hits album, no Classical album unless its original (read 20th, 21st century material that is on one of its first cds, this rule is in because somebody argued for an album with Beethoven's 5th and 6th on it and well it is flawless).
    With the above criteria, what are some albums you can think of that is flawlessly good front to back, no fillers?
    Had this discussion with some friends earlier today. 

    And of the modern music albums I can think of, Michael Jackson's Thriller is the only one I can name that is without a flyer. Michael Jackson isn't my cup of tea but rock is full of good albums with 6 good tracks and 6 fillers. What do you guys think are some album that is flawless throughout?

    I'm as big of a Radiohead(minus Amnesiac) fan as you'll find, but can somebody explain how Fitter, Happier is not a filler? It may accomplish something in the album, but it doesn't stand out by itself (in a good way) at all.

    I'm a fan of MJ's Thriller, but The Girl is Mine is the definition of filler. That song is terrible.

    The girl is mine is still a chart hit though. And let's be honest, it's a better song than fitter, happier.
