Debbie Gibson. From 1987-89, she kicked ass.

The consistent quality of Are You Experienced (US) just bowls me over. It's excellent from front to back.

Holland, two-headed boy and oh comely for me. Other than that, completely spot on, hence them being on this list.

Agree re the Clash too.

And yet I find it's his weakest album.

I find the weak spots on Axis to be pretty conspicuous. That album has some incredible peaks, but there are a number of tracks that feel slapdash or unnecessary. In contrast, I can't think of a bad track on Experienced. Not everything on Electric Ladyland is amazing but it's all in service of an atmospheric psychedelic experience. That album is a wonderful example of the studio as an instrument.

Experienced > Ladyland >>> Axis

Lil Wayne's another one. I count only one truly good song (Mr Carter).

Right, and I'm judging Axis as an album more than a collection of songs. I think it's a better experience (no pun intended) overall.

Electric Ladyland is a just a magnum opus, the greatest testament to the man's gifts.

^ this is a good one, Carry Me On Your Way Back Home is utterly heartbreaking, but everything else is kind of mediocre.

Bon Iver!

Bon Iver's on the other side of the spectrum for me. "Try and name the songs you don't like by an artist you love.

The Decemberists fit this for me...a few tracks I really enjoy, but I have a hard time making it through any of their albums

Agreed. Blood Bank sucks but the albums are basically perfect.

The title track alone more than makes up for it.
