List your Perfect Albums

Ok so we all have those albums that are PERFECT to us – meaning you love every song and don’t skip over any. You just put it on and let it play. It still means as much to you as when it came out – maybe more. So what are they?

I will get the obvious out of the way:

HTDAAB (I love it)

The Bends
Ok Computer
Kid A

Here are two that are particular to me –

August and Everything After – Counting Crows (although every song has basically the same melody)

Moondance – Van Morrison

I could actually list more than one for some (okay, all) of these...but...I went with the best of the best...though Bright Eyes was truly a toss-up:

Ryan Adams - Love Is Hell
Whiskeytown - Pneumonia
Jesse Malin - The Heat
Leona Naess - I Tried To Rock You But You Only Roll
Bright Eyes - Fevers And Mirrors
"Knight in shining Zubaz."
