View Full Version : Best Albums With NO Bad Songs

Was mulling this over a few days ago on my way home from work: how many albums can you think of where EVERY single song was good? You know, one of those albums where you actually played BOTH sides of the LP, not just the one? In my experience, most albums have one or two good songs, and the rest is just filler. Throw your nominations out there, and we might make this a poll.

MY choices (in no particular order):

Aerosmith - Toys In the Attic
Boston - Boston
Def Leppard - Pyromania
Journey - Infinity
Journey - Evolution
Led Zeppelin - IV
Metallica - Master Of Puppets
Rush - Moving Pictures
Tom Petty - Damn the Torpedoes
Van Halen - Van Halen (first album)

Honorable Mentions:

Guns 'N Roses - Appetite For Destruction
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Phil Collins - No Jacket Required
Motley Crue - Shout At The Devil
ZZ Top - Eliminator
Don Henley - Building The Perfect Beast
Michael Jackson - Off The Wall
Michael Jackson - Thriller

Rock on!

WAS going to nominate that one, but it's a greatest hits album, and that's kind of like, um, cheating; if that were the case, I'd add this:

Def Leppard - Pyromania

How could you not include Hysteria??

As for Frampton Comes Alive....I just have 4 words for him: Put. The. Talkbox. DOWN. :bang:

Hysteria was a VERY close second to Pyromania (and, yes, I saw them in concert that year); Pyromania was DL's FIRST (of many) really good albums.


As for Frampton Comes Alive....I just have 5 words for him: Put. The. Talk. Box. DOWN. :bang:

LOL!

Hey, the talk box was a BIG DEAL in 1976!

Which was better? Back In Black or Highway To Hell? HTH had Bon Scott, BIB had that new guy (don't remember his name).

And, yeah, I could go with DSotM and Who's Next . . . .

Its a real solid album. The Gunny has liked Green Day since Dookie.

So there Mr Lilo and Stich

A few more. It was hard picking the Dylan Album. I could have chose just about any one of them. Its like picking your favorite Eric Clapton album

Anyway a few more.

And Yeller, I haven't even touched the K-Pop groups :biggrin:

Definitely Dylan's best pre-Band album; and I forgot about "Songs In The Key Of Life".

Well, yeah, I was going to suggest we post KPOP albums but S2 might come in here and rip us a new one and Stitch might slit his throat because that's probably not what he wanted for this thread.

I was going to risk all that and suggest we do it but then....you might post SNSD. :frown:
