    Recommend some 5 star albums. Don't exaggerate. I mean albums you truly find to be a 5 star (or 10/10, A+ etc.) album. And try to be objective (objective means whatever that word means to YOU, no need to argue over its definition). I'm not going to add A Saucerful of Secrets as a 5/5 album because despite being my favourite Floyd album I don't think it's a 5/5.

    Obviously some may wonder what the hell you're on about and question how an album could be, but doesn't matter, it's your opinion. If you think it deserves a 5/5 on your rating scale then that's all that matters.

    For me
    The Beatles: Please Please Me, With the Beatles, Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper's, The Beatles, Abbey Road
    The Doors: Strange Days, Morrison Hotel, L.A. Woman
    Led Zeppelin: Led Zeppelin
    Pink Floyd: Piper's, Meddle, Dark Side, Animals, The Wall
    John Lennon: Plastic Ono Band
    Snoop Doggy Dogg: Doggystyle
    The Beach Boys: Pet Sounds
    Bob Marley & the Wailers: Catch a Fire

    That's all I could come up with.

    It was hard to resist putting Mystery Tour on there given that it’s one of my favourite Beatles albums and I like it more than others listed there but a couple songs that I like a lot but aren’t brilliant keep it from being a true 5/5. Like wise with Village Green.

    Every masterpiece (well, that I've heard anyway) has at least one flaw (Revolver has Yellow Submarine) or throwaway or sequencing that flags......except for maybe Purple Rain!
