    I looked this up to see if there was a thread for this and the only one I found was from 2012 and is locked up.
    So basically, this is all about albums that, in your opinion, are perfect. You wouldn't change a thing. You really dig every song. So go for it. I'll go first:
    My main 3 perfect albums, oddly enough all came out within a year or so of each other. They are:
    Social Distortion - Somewhere Between Heaven And Hell
    Soul Asylum - Grave Dancer's Union
    Matthew Sweet - Girlfriend
    I love everything about these albums. What are some of your "perfect" Albums?

    I would also pick In The Aeroplane Over The Sea. Definitely perfect from first note to last.

    No. I specifically left the Beatles off my list. I want actual perfect records, not records we're all told are perfect day after day.

    Mind Games by John Lennon.

    I'm a big Beatles and Beach Boys fan and out of everything I have by both groups, which is about 95% or more of everything they did, Mind Games is the only one that I can say that I like every single song (not counting the silent track). All of the others contain at least 1 song that does nothing for me.

    It definitely was a nice surprise seeing Social Distortion in a topic like that. Even though I'm undecided between that and "White Light White Heat White Trash".
