For me its a tough choice between

A Tribe Called Quest
1.Peoples Instinctive Rhythms
2.Low End Theory
3.Midnight Marauders


1.Dirty Deeds
2.Let There Be Rock

Pains me to leave out Zep but their first 5 albums are all equally worthy.

2. Anima
3. Lateralus


The Beatles:

Rubber Soul
Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band



x2 also, Deftones
2.Around The Fur
3.White Pony

2. The Bends
3. OK Computer

Pearl Jam
1. Ten
2. Vs.
3. Vitalogy

Red Hot Chili Peppers
1. Uplift Mofo Party Plan
2. Mother's Milk
3. Blood Sugar Sex Magik


Pink Floyd
1. Dark Side of the Moon
2. Wish You Were Here
3. Animals
(Could be 4 if you add The Wall)


Physical Graffiti is definitely worthy of making it a 6 great album run by Led Zeppelin.

1. S/T
2. Killers
3. The Number of the Beast

1. Kill 'Em All
2. Ride the Lightning
3. Master of Puppets

1. Aenima
2. Lateralus
3. 10000 Days

Sorry, Sixx, I just think 10000 Days is so much better than Undertow.

0. Pablo Honey
1. The Bends
2. OK Computer

I could go either way here, I like Pablo Honey and Amnesiac about the same

The Mars Volta
(0. Tremulant EP)
1. Deloused in the Comatorium
2. Frances the Mute
3. Amputechture

Now we can /thread


Rage? Rage Against the Machine, Evil Empire, Battle of Los Angeles.

What about James Brown? Hot Pants, There It Is, Get On the Good Foot.
Or live James Brown albums. Live At the Apollo, Vol.2, Sex Machine, Revolution of the Mind:Live At the Apollo, Vol.3

Nirvana. Nevermind, In Utero, Unplugged

Jimi Hendrix. Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold As Love, Electric Ladyland
