    Right now I am listening to All Things Must Pass. My vote for #1. Phil Spector's greatest work, and, ha, that's funny, because he was the King of Singles.

    Radiohead - OK Computer. Just brilliant. Changed everything for me. Never had the urge to skip a track.

    I'm not a big Stones fan, but Beggar's Banquet is close to perfection.

    If you're going with some cure, gotta be wish or disintegration for "perfect" albums.

    Through being cool by saves the day is my perfect driving album. I have some friends that while enroute from Syracuse ny to Florida didn't care/realize they had the same album on repeat until Georgia

    Gza liquid swords, any of the hold steady albums or the weakerthans left and leaving also come to mind for me

    Yeah, I was wondering why Disintegration wasn't the pick from The Cure.

    I had forgotten about Through Being Cool. Though I did like selected songs from Stay What You Are better (Freakish is definitely my favourite song by them).

    I think my top "perfect" album would be Deja Entendu by Brand New. Not sure why, but I LOVE every single song off the album.

    Others:
    Transatlanticism - Death Cab
    Building Something Out of Nothing - Modest Mouse

    Since I grew up on digital music, I really make playlists of my favourite songs rather than listen to albums. I think those three are the only albums I can think of where I wouldn't skip a song. I rarely even listen to Death Cab or Brand New anymore, but I still think those albums were fantastic as a whole.

    Best driving "album" ever is Bob Seger's Greatest Hits (1994). I know it's not technically an album, but whatever.

    Yeah it's not like some deep insight or anything but it's crazy how much digital music and having a remote control of some type changed things. We'd be stoned, sitting on the couch, it was enough work to get up and flip the thing over or put a new one on every half-hour.

    For a new-"er" album I guess I'd nominate "& the mysterious production of eggs" (Andrew Bird) although that's not so new anymore.

    Kind of hard to pinpoint perfection on some of the newer stuff although right now I'm leaning to Trombone Shorty "Backatown" and El Stew "No Hesitation". Also, while not really new, Amerigio Gazaway mash up of Fela Kuti and Del la Soul is pretty damn good.

    Yes, it is. In a nose-to-nose race with Wish You Were Here.

    Those two albums were the best work they ever did.

    i almost put brothers in arms, but for me only the second side is perfect. the first three songs, particularly money for nothing diminishes the album for me a bit, but it's also one of my alltime faves.

    How about having your opinion count?

    Search for the Perfect Album on NPR

    I agree with a lot of what's been said here - My Aim is True, OK Computer, etc. I would add:

    Joni Mitchell "Blue"
    Led Zeppelin "Physical Graffiti"
    De La Soul "Three Feet High...."
    Radiohead "In Rainbows"
    Roxy Music "Avalon"
    Peter Gabriel "Us"
    Peter Gabriel "So"
    Prince "Purple Rain"
    .
