Name some albums that are (to you) perfect in everyway, from first track to last track. Here’s some of my submissions: No particular order except Siamese Dream, which is my fav record of all time.

Smashing Pumpkins – Siamese Dream
White Zombie – Astrocreep 2000
Far – Water and Solutions
Radiohead – OK Computer
Queen – A Night at the Opera
Led Zeppelin – First Album
Rush – Moving Pictures
Genesis – A Trick of the Tail and Self-Titled
Rage Against the Machine – Self-Titled
Nirvana – Nevermind (Kurt said this was produced too \"slick\", but I still love it)
Deftones – Adrenaline

All pretty standard stuff, which I’m sure most of you have heard. But IMO, these albums are perfect. No flaws, no filler. Like the artist(s) knew exactly what they wanted to convey and did so as an artistic acme of their catalogs. I love these albums!!!

My contribution. As I’m fond of a few styles of music, and love both live and studio albums, the list is a bit mixed. See if you like it also, I’ll explain the unknown bands/albums a bit.

-Smashing Pumpkins – Siamese Dream. #1, no doubt.

In no particular order:

-Rainbow – Rainbow on stage (my very first CD in the 80’s, still a huge favourite)
-Sepultura – Roots
-Urban Dance Squad – Life ‘n perspectives of a genuine crossover & Hollywood Live, Pinkpop Live (promo EP) (dutch rap/rock inspiration to RATM)
-Uriah Heep – Live January 1973
-16 Horsepower – whole catalogue (my #2 band after the Smashing Pumpkins)
-Dead Kennedys – Fresh fruit for rotting vegetables (early 80’s USA punk, defined my rebellish youth)
-Deep Purple – Shades of Deep Purple & Made in Japan
-Rage Against The Machine – Rage Against The Machine
-The Scorpions – Fly to the rainbow (1st outing of the Scorpions)
-The Music – The Music (shocking good UK electronic rock)
-Gary Moore – We want Moore!
-Led Zeppelin – The song remains the same & The BBC sessions
-Kobus gaat naar Appelscha – All smooth faces in a fantasy world (local ’80s dutch funpunk band)
-Nirvana – Hormoaning & Nevermind
-Kiss – Alive & Alive II (defined my love for rock music)
-Massive Attack – Mezzanine
-September Malevolence – Tomorrow we’ll wonder where this generation gets it’s priorities from (scandinavian progrock)
-Nuggets & Nuggets II (huge compilation on 8 CDs of early ’60s rock/punk/garage music. To me the definitive source of all today’s loud music)
-Tin Machine – Tin Machine
-Reboelje – Simmersnie EP (frisian alternative rockband, #3 after SP and 16HP)
-Anouk – Anouk is alive (dutch rock singer)
-Pink Floyd – Meddle & Live at Pompeii
-Noir Desir – Des vigases des figures (french alternative rock, #4 after SP, 16HP and Reboelje)
-Stevie Ray Vaughn – Texas Flood & Live at The El Mocambo
-The Nits – Hat (dutch alternative pop band, the band I’ve seen live the most times so far)
-Muse – Absolution

Next to SP I’m a collector also of 16 Horsepower, Reboelje and Noir Desir. Reboelje collection is complete, as they stopped playing a few years ago and released only around 20 albums and singles. There are also 2 songs I just need to mention here.

-Hallo Venray – Tuck, the man (dutch alternative band, my life anthem, about loving a girl)
-Accept – Son of a bitch (my middlefinger to you all out there 8) )

I stop now, as a few more albums and songs pop up in my mind. That’s it for the moment! :D

They have 2 tracks from their first selftitled album online, being "Take the long road and walk it" & "The people". Listen and enjoy, & also check out the other tracks and the video. I love them!

I know what you mean BleedingTheOrchid. Muse and The Music both have this tiny bit too much electronics. Somehow. Somewhere. Smoothened up or something. However I do like that rollercoaster of rock taking me higher on speedy guitars, pretty good drums and a squeeky voice very much! And as with Billy’s texts, they are writing intelligent rocksongs. Kinda. Somehow. Somewhere. Well, anyway, just my taste. Hard to explain. 8)

I suppose I’ll go for Rammstein’s releases. Each flows along flawlessly from song to song and imho they’re all swish standalone tracks, also.

The same for Filter, although imho some acoustic tracks don’t quite ‘flow’ with the befores and afters.

Something completely unpredictable… Gish: Flow – flow – flow. :)
