Pink Floyd-Meddle, Dark Side, Wish You Were Here, Animals
Hendrix-Are You Experienced
Elton John-Tumbleweed Connection, Madman, Captain Fantastic
Fleetwood Mac-Rumours
West Side Story soundtrack and Leonard Bernstein conducting

Have to run, but I may be back...lol

Nighthawks at the Diner - tom waits
Mer De Nom - A Perfect Circle
Suffer - Bad Religion
Elephant Riders - Clutch

Kinda: 10,000 days/lateralis - I absolutely to listen all the way through, but there's some weird "filler" stuff as Tool typically does and sometimes I do skip.

I have no trouble listening to Kind of blue or some other classic jazz recordings through.

Tough to think of all the specific albums!

When thinking of it, Van der Graaf Generator made two albums without any weak material whatsoever (in my opinion); "Pawn Hearts" and "Still Life". Yes "Close to the Edge" is very very good right through as well. Genesis "Selling England by the Pound" comes to mind, and Rush "Permanent Waves" & "Moving Pictures". And I can't forget Gentle Giant "The Power and the Glory"

My list would take too long. There are so many albums I love from start to finish. As my taste changed through the years I would eventually learn to love songs that I didn't like at the start. A good example of that is on the Moody Blues "Every Good Boy Deserves Favor" album. The last song on the album was called "My Song" and I would skip it because it was far too corny for me. Now I consider it one of the best songs ever written!

Best song on that album, Mike Pinder had something special going on, at the time. He certainly knew how to play the mellotrone!

What a tough question! There’s something I don’t like on every album I have. No wonder people jumped on iTunes so easily - they can just buy what they want!

Couldn’t do that when I was a kid!

I like your list, Mongrel. Let me add Elton's Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, if I may. 😊

Here are a few of mine.
Death: Human, Individual Thought Patterns, & Symbolic (that where my screen name comes from)
Obscura: Cosmogenesis, Omnivium, Akroasis, Diluvium (together they are all one big concept album)
Darkane: Rusted Angel, Layers of Lies, The Sinister Supremacy

I'm sure there's more, but those are the ones that jumped.out for me.

So does anyone NOT sound like they’re screaming at a demon on any of those albums?

Beatles - Abbey Road
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Dark Side of the Moon

AC/DC - Black in Black. This one is just because it’s seared into the memories of my 14yo self beginning my trek toward adulthood in the back of James’ 1979 Pontiac Trans Am while tooling around Orlando with friends. Sorry, no details.

Ha ha ha..not really. It's not all growling, but there is a lot of aggressive singing. Obscura does a lot of clean vocals going through a vocoder, and Darkane's does more cleanish singing. Chuck from Death changed his vocal styles album to album. Death Metal generally isn't vocal drive music for the most part.
Give Obscura a listen and tell me those guys don't know how to play.

I'll second these. And I will also add:

Death - Human
Megadeth - Rust in Peace, Peace Sells...But Whose Buying?
Slayer - Reign in Blood
NWA - Straight Outta Compton

Lots of greatest hits and live albums too, but those don't count in my eyes.
I was about to post Human and Reign in Blood. Got there first but I'd just remembered how good they both were.
