In no particular order and assuming this is non-compilation, non-live and studio LPs by a single artist(?) - also, although I would probably list multiple albums by the one artist, in this case, I'll keep it to one from each:-

Wind and Wuthering - Genesis
The Koln Concert - Keith Jarret
Rush - Moving Pictures
Billy Joel - The Stranger
Ted Hawkins - The Venice Beach Tapes
Bruce Springsteen - The River
Aimee Mann - Whatever
Led Zeppelin - II
Jepp - Jepp
ELO - Out of The Blue
Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

Awesome! Respect to you fr0g! I thought I was alone in thinking this album is something of a classic. I'm still looking for an LP copy but the music is so good that CD will suffice...for now.

I have pretty much everything by Mark lanegan (except the QOTSA (wasn't keen) ), but this album is as close to perfection as is possible. Not a single bad track IMO.

in fact, for that reason this list doesnt really reflect the majority of the music i listen to. i was just trying to remember the albums i can stand to listen to end to end, and these are the closest that sprang to mind.

Slayer - South of Heaven

Marillion - Fantastic, i'm not the only one who puts 'Clutching At Straws' as one of their favourites. Funny enough i was playing this last night before i'd seen this list, and it's as good now as the very first time i played it (though last night it has developed a skip on track 3). Steve Rothery has never been given the credit he deserves. A magnificent guitar player.

Future Sound Of London - only album i've heard is 'Dead Cities' and i just can not get into it despite many years of trying.

Slayer - surely 'Reign In Blood' is better.

also great to see the inclusions of Faith No More and Screaming Trees - takes me back a long way.

FSOL, Dead cities is not an album for a first listen to a band...Lifeforms is an ambient masterpiece, perfect for headphones whilst lying in bed.

Slayer... Well Reign in Blood is excellent, but I like the slower stuff. But Angel of death is a fantastic album opener.
