If I had to name only three "perfect albums" like JHDK did, I would pick the Beatles' Revolver and Rubber Soul and Jethro Tull's Thick As A Brick. The original Thick As A Brick album included The St. Cleve Chronicle & Linwell Advertiser, a 12-page newspaper parody which is every bit as enterainiing as the music. "Do not see me Rabbit." If I were to pick a fourth one, it would be the Rolling Stones' Aftermath.

All good choices, many awesome albums. My personal favorite NIN album is With Teeth, which I often listen to straight through.

Here's some more:

The Cars - The Cars
Billy Joel - The Stranger

Jon , we think alike. If I had to keep my list to three I'd add Led Zeppelin II to Rumors and The Wall. Boston's first album would complete my Mt. Rushmore with honorable mentions to Pink Floyd- The Dark Side of the Moon and AC/DC- Back in Black.
