I don't think I've heard anything "perfect", but albums that don't have a meh song are pretty hard to find.

Here's stuff where I like EVERYTHING on it more than a little, even if some tracks aren't perfect:

Sugar, Copper Blue
Pixies, Doolittle
U2, Achtung Baby
U2, Zooropa
Pavement, Terror Twilight
Steely Dan, Countdown to Ecstasy
Steely Dan, Aja
Phoenix, Alphabetical
Phoenix, It's Never Been Like That
New Order, Brotherhood

The Queen is Dead is the definitive perfect album to me. It's not my favorite Smiths album (Strangeways has sentimental value) but track for track it's just plain perfect.

Other "Sweet Boneless Christ this is the best thing ever" albums:
The Magnetic Fields - Holiday
Magazine - Secondhand Daylight
Magazine - Real Life
Morrissey - Vauxhall and I
David Bowie - Low
Brian Eno - Here Come the Warm Jets
Brian Eno - Another Green World
T. Rex - Electric Warrior

Abbey Road, Sgt. Peppers, Blood on the Tracks, Achtung, J. Tree, OkC, Appetite, Born to Run, Ten, Beggar's Banquet, Is This It, Pop....

But that's more a list of my favorite albums ...however they are close to "perfect" in my mind I guess.

Urban Hymns - 9.1
Yep, those two are pretty close to perfect in my opinion too!

To me an album is perfect if changing a note would feel like sacrilege. Here's my list:

U2 - The Joshua Tree
U2 - Achtung Baby
Marvin Gaye - What's Going On
Jeff Buckley - Grace
Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run
Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town

It's a compilation of some of their best singles and b-sides, I couldn't disagree with you more. When it hit North America it was massive for Smiths fans. Couple it with Hatful of Hollow and it's the perfect companion, imo.

Louder Than Bombs would be better if it didn't have duplicate versions of some songs on it.

Girl Afraid, William it Was Really Nothing, This Night Has Opened My Eyes, the single version of Hand In Glove, ect... are all also on Hatful.
Redeemed by different version of 'These Things Take Time' and 'Back to the Old House,' though, I suppose.
Smiths compilations always have to have something wrong, never fault of the songs, but always fault of the tracklist! It's a sin that 'Wonderful Woman' hasn't made it onto ANY friggin compilation! I think I may just be irritable. :/

A "compilation" really can't be considered an "album" anyways, so it shouldn't even be listed.

Not to mention that it's a bit of a stretch to call something with that many tracks "perfect".

Also, New Order's Substance is a compilation of singles as well, though I'd argue it's more "perfect" than Louder than Bombs.

Cos I am yet to find one. The closest I have come so far is Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd, which I rate:
Shine on You Crazy Diamond parts I - V 10
Welcome to the Machine 8
Have a Cigar 9
wish you Were Here 10
Shine on You Crazy Diamond parts VI - IX 10

So is there an perfect album for you? If there isn't list what comes closest. I'd like to see what people think




U2/AB


I don´t think other artist/band have made a CD that I can call perfect (for my taste)
