I tend to listen to albums all the way through or not at all, but there are a few I will skip a few songs.

Albums I currently listen to all the way through and utterly adore:

Art Of Fighting -- Wires and Second Storey
Gersey -- Hope Springs and Storms Dressed As Stars
Steve Kilbey -- all solo work
Isidore -- Isidore
Stephen Cummings -- Falling Swinger
David Lane Compass
Steve & Russell Kilbey -- Gilt Trip
Hex -- Hex
Halogen -- Save The Ones You Love
Sea Ray -- Stars At Noon
Sleepwell -- Sleepwell
Remy Zero Villa Elaine
The Church -- Heyday, Starfish, Priest = Aura, After Everything Now This, Beside Yourself, El Momento Descuidado, and although far from perfect, I do love and almost always listen to Gold Afternoon Fix straight though. (mostly with The Church I skip the songs with Marty or Peter on vocals. )

I tend to go through phases where I won't listen to a band for years, sometimes when I pick it back up to listen to, I still adore it, other times I can't figure out why I loved it so in the first place.

Another full-album listener here!

That said, here are some of my perfect picks:
Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
Beatles - Rubber Soul and Revolver
Elvis Costello & The Attractions - Imperial Bedroom and Blood & Chocolate (both just a tiny inch better than Armed Forces )
Crowded House - Together Alone
Bob Dylan - Oh Mercy
Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland
Thé Lau - De God Van Nederland
R.E.M. - Automatic For The People
The Scene - Open
Spearhead - Home
Tröckener Kecks - >tk
Urban Dance Squad - Mental Floss For The Globe
U2 - Achtung Baby and Zooropa

I can go on, but I don't want to devaluate the essence of the list.
And of course, I think I forgot about half of the albums qualified for the list.

Achtung Baby, U2
Zooropa, U2
Pop, U2 ( a weak, perfect album if I can say that)
The Bends, Radiohead
OK Computer, Radiohead
August and Everything After, Counting Crows
Fumbling Towards Ecstacy, Sarah McLachlan
Grace, Jeff Buckley
Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea, PJ Harvey
Reset EP, Mute Math
Horse Stories, The Dirty Three
Ocean Songs, The Dirty Three
Kind of Blue, Miles Davis

There are far too many albums I love every single song on. I dont want to make a half page list.....or do I?

"lover's rock". if that song wasn't on that cd, it would indeed be perfect. same with either version of the self-titled album minus "police & thieves".

london calling is one of my all-time favorite albums, and as far as u2 albums go, i prefer achtung baby to ATYCLB, hell some days i like october better than the joshua tree. "perfect" album doesn't mean much to me. i skip half the alkaline trio's "good mourning" album, and although i'd never say it's one of my favorites, i still would say i enjoy it a lot.

the stuff i listed is more like "albums where any song could be my favorite song".

which means if i listed the joshua tree, take it off. it can trip through someone else's wires.
