A while back someone posted on the Genesis forums a question about what albums are good from start to finish, that do not have a bad song on them, that you'd happily listen to from beginning to end. Then today wasabi_poptart asked basically the same question, and I was like, wait! I need more data on this! The Genesis forum people are a little... biased, I'd say, in favor of certain genres. I expect better of my friends' list though, so please fill out a little poll with the albums you think are classics, virtually without a dud on them, your favorites.

(I am a nerd and have a list of more than five, and if you are like me, feel free to expand in comments.)

Poll #1164085 Albums with a Perfect 10 (In no particular order)

OMG, Judybats! I have that on cassette tape too! I loved that tape. I'm going to have to dig it out when I get home.

Anyways. *g* snidegrrl, I was looking at what people listed and realized my five might not be too good. They're the top five that I like but may not be musically incredible.

Aigh Judybats! You are so right. I should add Pain Makes You Beautiful to the list.

Girlfriend has one or two songs that are like, "ehn" to me nowadays. But it is almost 100% good.

Same goes for REM's Document.

Also, I narrow my eyes at the Timberlake, but stop short of judging.

Go ahead and judge! EVERY SONG IS GOOD EVEN THAT ONE ABOUT HOW SOMETIMES PEOPLE ARE POOR

1986-7 was really good to me.

Also in retrospect I still love it but I bet if I had listened to it for the first time today I would be like "that's nice." and that would be the end of it. Maybe.
