I won't had the obvious which have already been listed (Dark side, Back in black, Appetite, Abbey Road, Led Zep IV, Metallica black album, OK computer...)
I will add some :
Neal Morse Band : the great adventure, perfect all along
Flying Colors : the first album, perfect sound perfect tracks.
Buckley : Grace

King Crimson : Court of the Crimson King
Marillion : Misplaced childhood - though I could do without the very last track.

and NO ONE has mentioned any King Diamond albums, I know the voice is not everyone's cup of tea, but the musicianship on those albums (Them. Abigail and others) is just too good to ignore. I say there are no bad tracks on any of those albums.

Slayer Seasons of the abyss
Metallica Master of puppets
Sepultura Beneath the remains
Queensryche Operation Mindcrime
Judas Priest Painkiller
Megadeth Rust in Peace
Angeles Del Infierno Pacto con el diablo
Black Sabbath Headless Cross
Jinjer King of everything
I can probably come up with hundreds more but that is just MY personal taste...

Completely agree on "Them" (I haven't heard the others). While the singing can get old, the music is out of this world. It's a perfect metal album. Back when I played guitar this album was a game changer for me. You know, if King D would sing with his normal voice more often it would be amazing. (Rob Halford too. Like he did in older Priest).

Completely agree on "Them". I actually looked for a way to remove the vocal track because while the singing can get old, the music is out of this world. It's a perfect metal album.

Yes the guitar work on those albums is spectacular, very underrated if you ask me.
also agree on King singing on his regular voice would still sound great .
guitars aside, if you look at the entire picture, the song stories, the creepy initial keyboards on some songs, the whole atmosphere, then, drums kicking in only to launch a devastating guitar onslaught combined with a very groovy feel. Man I miss proper music like this. bands today are focusing too much in being overly technical but lacking groove, I can appreciate the display of chops but I get bored after a little while, on the other hand when listening to albums such as Them or Abigail, I can listen all the way trough and still remain interested. as a matter of fact I listened to Fatal Portrait recently and discovered lots of nuances I had not heard before. Also having the lyrics make a huge difference on how you feel about the singing, it's similar to Queensryche's Operation Mindcrime where the story is engaging and the music is just superb as well. like I said, I miss music like that....:cry:

Right off the top of my head, without going through my record collection for reminders, these are a few of the albums that I can listen (and re-listen) to all the way through without being inclined to skip certain songs that are marginal or obvious fillers. I'm already loading others into my consciousness, some of them even more noteworthy than these - but this is a good, faltering start.
