Lots of bands/artists make 2 or 3 great albums but how many can still make a great 8th album?

    Zappa's 8th, 18th and 28th albums are all worth checking out.

    The Beatles-all their albums are great by most standards but best of the best : Please Please Me, A Hard Day’s Night, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Peppers, MMT*, White Album, Abbey Road, Let it Be
    *MMT is more a comp but still.

    Bob Dylan: Freewheelin’, Another Side Of, bringing it all back home, highway 61, blonde on blonde, John Wesley Harding, Nashville Skyline, blood in the tracks, desire, slow train coming, time out of mind, love and theft

    The Kinks: face to face, something else, Village green, Arthur, Lola, muswell hillbillies, showbiz, schoolboys. The latter 2 are eclectic but I absolutely love em!! Face to face is the most borderline but fits.

    Tom Waits: Small Change, Blue Valentine, Swordfishtrombones, Rain Dogs, Franks Wild Years, Bone Machine, Alice, Blood Money

    Neil Young: everybody knows this is nowhere, after the goldrush, on the beach, tonight’s the night, zuma, rust never sleeps, freedom, ragged glory, harvest moon, sleeps with angels

    Many others are close....top ones are no order
    1-Harry Nilsson (P.Cats is so unique I nearly counted him: Pandemonium Shadow Show/Aerial Ballet/Harry/The Point/ Nilsson Schmilsson/ Son Of Schmilsson/ A Touch of)

    2. Zappa/Mother’s: freak out, absolutely free, we’re only in it for the money, hot rats, over-nite sensation, joes garage [treat as 1], the yellow Shark. He probably should get in but several others I don’t spin enough to yet call classics despite having them for years

    The OP means the actual 8th album...not 8 albums.

    I'm curious as well, but, yes, I interpreted it as the artist had eight "great albums" in a row.

    Yet, the more I think of it, that wouldn't need to be the case. It could just be an artist who's 8th album was great as a "stand-alone" album.

    My actual point was that a band that had been around awhile suddenly has a great album that's the band's eighth album. Regardless of the albums before, no matter how good or bad those albums were.
     
  16. Dr. Pepper

    Dr. Pepper What, me worry?

    Number 8 would be Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, my vote for greatest 8th album of all time!

    I thought Quad was The Who's sixth studio album, and seventh overall if you include Live At Leeds. But then there are a few compilation albums that would make Quad their tenth album overall. But of those three, if you only count Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy, then Quad is their eighth. Creative math. :D

    Well, I do not know whoever listed as their 8th Album had made that calculation, but if it is their 6th Studio Album, then I do not think it qualifies if I understood this thread correctly. I only included Studio Albums in my other Selections and not Live Albums, B-Sides(so for Suede, did not count 'Sci Fi Lullabies'), etc.

    Another classic (to me at least). It's my favorite after The Stranger.
