Autobahn - Computer World
i always think Hex and Perverted By Language are an amazing one-two until i remember Room to Live came in between
in terms of length:
Rush - Caress of Steel through Presto.
Converge - Jane Doe, You Fail Me, No Heroes, Axe to Fall, AWLWLB… probably the next album too
rolling stones - beggars banquet to exile on main street
stevie wonder - music of my mind to songs in the key of life
metallica - ride the lightning to justice
Pet Shop Boys; Actually, Introspective, Behaviour, Very
REM - First 5
Swans - Last 4
Would say his first 4 albums are also pretty flawless.
Tindersticks 1st to Can Our Love - ridiculous 5 album run.
A Series of Sneaks to They Want My Soul… and this one is likely to be extended this week
Yo La Tengo - Painful through to And Then Nothing…v strong 4 album run.
The Cure - Seventeen Seconds, Faith, Pornography
The Man Who Sold The World - Hunky Dory - Ziggy - Aladdin Sane - Diamond Dogs - Young Americans - Station to Station - Low - ‘Heroes’ - Lodger - Scary Monsters
First six for Sabbath, in my view, certainly first five.
I think the best ever is easily The Smashing Pumpkins with
Gish - Siamese Dream - Pisces Iscariot - Mellon Collie - Adore - Machina - Machina II
I can’t imagine this sequence ever being beaten.
Runner up would be Modest Mouse with their entire discography, but especially This Is a Long Drive - Lonesome Crowded West - Building Nothing Out of Something - Moon and Antarctica.
Limiting others to 3 or 4 max:
Counting Crows: August and Everything After, Recovering the Satellites, This Desert Life, Hard Candy
Radiohead: The Bends, OKComputer, Kid A
Elliott Smith: Either/Or, XO, Figure 8, From a Basement on the Hill
Afghan Whigs: Congregation, Gentlemen, Black Love
Twilight Singers: Twilite, Blackberry Belle, Powder Burns
The National: Alligator, Boxer, High Violet, Trouble Will Find Me
Sigur Ros: Ágætis Byrjun, (), Takk
Built to Spill: Ultimate Alternative Wavers, There Is Nothing Wrong with Love, Perfect From Now On, Keep It Like a Secret
The Antlers: Hospice, Burst Apart, Familiars
QOTSA: s/t, Rated R, Songs for the Deaf, Lullabies to Paralyze
Pearl Jam: Vs, Vitalogy, No Code, Yield
I’d stick Ten at the start of Pearl Jam and take off Yield
Dark Side of The Moon - Wish You Were Here - Animals - The Wall
Born to run, darkness on the edge of town, the river, nebraska, born in the USA
You can argue for tunnel of love after that if you want too
Intimidating question so I’m going to attack it from hiphop:
Kendrick Lamar has gone off like a train with GKMC, TPAB, UU.
A Tribe Called Quest: take your pick of any four really!
Perhaps Kanye West isn’t far off but I’m not sure which end I’d choose, early or latter.
Run The Jewels have put out a trio of albums in short time which is impressive - though all similar style.
