Weird Al - Running With Scissors
Morbid Angel - Alters Of Madness

Sijjin- Sumerian Promises
Marduk- Panzer Division Marduk
Deeds Of Flesh- Gradually Melted (EP)

(i could list more, like world funeral by marduk, but that album has few bad songs that my music program automatically skips, so im not sure if that counts)

DthOnMnSt's picture

screaming for vengeance-defenders of the faith/judas priest
too fast for love-shout at the devil/motley crue
van halen/van halen
spellbound/tygers of pan tang

bro still gotta thank you for letting me know bout that killer blind guardian album

bad_american1992's picture

Funny cause I don't see it on your list.... hmmmm....

no karate in pit's picture

oh sorry my lord

DthOnMnSt's picture

great choice on that sabbath one pal

andermatten's picture

(I'm probably one of those avant garde types who just can't keep his mouth shut :D)

mezzanine is excellent, but after blue lines, protection (&/w mad professor), tricky, archive etc. imo it doesn't really stand out...how about portishead - dummy?

bad_american1992's picture

Ahaha you're fine! Blue Lines is one of my all time favorites as well, but I find "Lately" to be a boring track that brings it down to a 9.8/10. Mezz is one that I can listen to over and over and over and in any situation, each song is worth diving into and dissecting. I'm pleased that you have an in depth knowledge on the 'Bristol scene', that makes me happy lol. Dummy is fantastic and so is a lot of Tricky's work.

+1 for Heaven & Hell, such an underrated record

bad_american1992's picture

Having a brand new singer (Dio) and feeling the competition from Iron Maiden and the NWOBHM takeover forced them to crank out a masterpiece.

HandleWithCare's picture

Van Halen self titled is and always will be the best album I have ever listened to. Nothing since has topped it for me.

Wow that’s i lot! I agree with most of your picks but I think most aren’t perfect and just great albums

no karate in pit's picture

just my personal picks the ones i can spin and be like hell yeah the whole time

Wyvern's picture

I know it's not metal but i'll say 'In the Court of the Crimson King' by King Crimson

a chicken's picture

I don't personally do number ratings for albums, but here's some metal/other albums that are legit flawless imo;

Converge - Jane Doe
Dystopia - The Aftermath
Nasum - Human 2.0
357 Homicide - Homicidal Abusement Through Supreme Exsanguination
The Hirs Collective - Friends, Lovers, Favorites
Slayer - Reign in Blood
Exodus - Bonded by Blood
Iron Maiden - Killers
Mercyful Fate - Melissa
Demolition Hammer - Tortured Existence
Cryptopsy - None so Vile
Party Cannon - Perverse Party Platter
Friendship - Worthless
Korn - Issues
Kanonenfieber - Menschenmühle
Suffocation - Pierced from Within
System of a Down - Steal This Album!
Rotten Sound - Abuse to Suffer
Prophecy of Doom - Acknowledge the Confusion Master
Black Sabbath - Heaven and Hell
Toxik - Think This
Death (Florida) - Human

And some non-metal ones just cause they're also perfect from start to finish;

Sophie - Oil of Every Pearl's Un-insides
Black Dresses - Forever in Your Heart
The Rebel Spell - Last Run
Toxik Ephex - The Adventures of Nobby Porthole
Aus-Rotten - The Rotten Agenda
Death (Michigan) - For the Whole World to See
Clipping - There Existed an Addiction to Blood
Aesop Rock - The Impossible Kid
Björk - Medúlla
Exuma - Exuma

It's tough to leave out albums like Rainbow Rising and Somewhere in Time, but those albums just have one or two tracks that just ain't it. All of the albums above I treat like perfect movies in a way, just taking a couple hours of the night to grab a drink and just admire how awesome they are, I physically can not just listen to one or two songs off them xD

andermatten's picture

wow, a music-connoisseur!!

yeah I know this site is about metal, but I'm burning to post e.g. my beastie boys shirts....I once got critisised for posting a sex pistols shirt FFS!

I love this thread though, and since you've thrown aesop rock in here, I'm going to toss in

company flow - little johnny from the hospitul
madvillain - madvillainy
analog brothers - pimp to eat

and the 'black trilogy':

Isaac Hayes - Black Moses
Lamont Dozier - Black Bach
Kool Keith - Black Elvis

a chicken's picture

I wouldn't call myself that haha, I just listen to a lot of the stuff xD Most of my metalhead friends also rock with hip hop, punk and all sorts of other genres like most people, so the folks complaining probably have bad music taste and a stick up their ass🤷‍♀️

I actually set up a collector's group for hip hop merch because there's so much cool rap memrobillia on the site already, I'd say to be prod of the cool shit you own dude🙏🤘

Yessss Isaac Hayes and Madvillain are amazing 🖤🖤 I'll check out the other albums you mentioned for sure too dude, thanks for sharing🔥🔥🔥

Lloyd H's picture

My random ten:
Led Zeppelin - 4
Black Sabbath - Vol 4 (Sabbath Bloody Sabbath would be here but 'Who Are You?' scuppers that)
UFO - Strangers In The Night
Van Halen - 1
Motorhead - Ace Of Spades
Slayer - Reign In Blood
Alice In Chains - Dirt
Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness
Napalm Death - Mentally Murdered (It's an EP I know but it's perfect at that length)
Bolt Thrower - Those Once Loyal

No Metallica because as great as 'RTL' and 'MOP' are - two of my favourite albums ever - both are ever so slightly flawed. 'Escape' is a pretty misguided attempt at a 'radio tune' and 'Leper Messiah' is merely OK.

Stone Roses debut and a bunch of other non-metal albums should get a mention too but am concentrating on rock/metal here.

andermatten's picture

yeah, Stone Roses!

Lloyd H's picture

Debut is a total classic isn't it? 'Second Coming' not so much but there are still a few good tunes on it.

no karate in pit's picture

kill em all has not a single bad song

Cryptic_Stench's picture

Rage- reflections of a shadow
Toxik - world circus - think this
Cyclone temple - I hate therefore i’am
Crimson glory - self titled and transcendence
Sanctuary- refuge denied

oldmate's picture

Great question ThatBillyGuy - I totally agree with a few you listed !! I have 15 albums that for me are perfect 10/10... so many 9's and even 9.5's but this is my list of 10's

AC/DC - Back in Black
AC/DC - Stiff upper lip
Alestorm - No Grave But the Sea
Anthrax - Among the living
Blood Duster - Straight outta northcote
Cannibal Corpse - The Bleeding
Guns N’ Roses - Appetite For Destruction
Gutalax - Shit Beast
Megadeth - Peacesells…
Metallica - Master of puppets
Pantera - Vulgar Display of Power
Power Trip - nightmare logic
S.O.D. - Speak english or die
Slayer - Reign in Blood

a chicken's picture

oldmate's picture

no karate in pit's picture

- Agent Steel - Skeptics Apocalypse
- Attic - Sanctimonious
- Candlemass - Epicus Doomicus Metallicus
- Dissection - Storm of the Light's Bane
- Doomsword - Resound the Horn

Anthrax - Persistence Of Time
Dark Angel - Darkness Descends and Leave Scars
Vio-Lence - Oppressing The Masses
Crumbsuckers - Life Of Dreams and B.O.M.B.

ThrashMetalTrashFan's picture

Time Travelling Blues should be here, best stoner album ever.

Jonathan666's picture

These are just a few, the first ones which come to my mind:

Bathory - Hammerheart
Bathory - Twilight Of The Gods
Bathory - Blood On Ice
Burzum - Det Som Engang var
Burzum - Hvis Lyset Tar Oss
Limbonic Art - Moon In The Scorpio
Limbonic Art - In Abhorrence Dementia
Cradle Of Filth - Principle Of Evil Made Flesh
Cradle Of Filth - Vempire
Satyricon - Dark Medieval Times
Arcturus - Aspera Hyems Symphonia
Beherit - Drawing Down The Moon
Archgoat - Angelcunt
Archgoat - Heavenly Vulva
Demoncy - Joined In Darkness
Bestial Warfare - Desecrating Goat Assault
Mayhem - Wolf Lair's Abyss
Gorgoroth - Destroyer
Gehenna - First Spell
Immortal - Pure Holocaust
Ancient - Mad Grandiose Bloodfiends
Nokturnal Mortum - The Voice Of Steel
Impaled Nazarene - Suomi Finland Perkele
Immolation - Dawn Of Possession
Incantation - Onward To Golgotha
Belphegor - The Last Supper
Belphegor - Lucifer Incestus
Miasma - Changes
Edge Of Sanity - Crimson
Samael - Ceremony Of Opposites
Samael - Passage
Metallica - Ride The Lightning
Metallica - And Justice For All
Metallica - Metallica
Dark Angel - Darkness Descends
Nightwish - Oceanborn
Nightwish - Wishmaster
Nightwish - Century Child
Nightwish - Once
Wintersun - Time I
Theatre Of Tragedy - Velvet Darkness They Fear
Theatre Of Tragedy - Aegis
Amorphis - Skyforger

Like I said, these are just the very first I can think of, the list is definitely longer. Because "albums which I can listen with pleasure front-to-back without disliking one song" is one thing, those are very many. Whereas "albums which are really and truly 10/10" - which means they are 100% flawless, which is the equivalent of "total and absolute musical perfection".... well that's another story already....
