Agree, except for on the run, the only song I actually skip.

I say number of the beast by Iron Maiden.
Wish you were here by Pink Floyd
El espíritu del vino-Héroes del Silencio. (Great Spanish rock, you should listen to them...Avalancha appeared in Guitar Hero but I think is one of the weakest songs)

Define perfect, universally. What's perfect to me might be complete shite to you.

Nah, there are albums that I enjoy most of the tracks as being equally great, though. Perfection is a different thing, I think.

Look up the censored version on iTunes. Just about half of the chorus is awkward silences

As perfect depends on your own personal taste in music then yes and no, but I myself think several albums are perfect or damn close.

The Wall, and TS if you use a rap record at least use "Illmatic" by Nas. Also, Evan Brewer - Alone, Animals as Leaders - self titled, Iron Maiden - Number of the Beast, Black Sabbath - self titled, and Far Beyond Driven - Pantera.

Because it's impossible for there to be more than one good rap record?

I'll assume you mean Number of the Beast, right?
Run to the Hills is a song on that album.

If we're on the subject of rap, Madvillainy and Doomsday ftw.

For me, Horizons by Parkway Drive. And jumping into a totally different genre, just about all of Clapton's work. These are examples, in my opinion, of close to perfection. But, to answer the original question, as close to perfection as we may perceive an album to be at any given point, a better album comes about and blows minds. My point: music can always improve!

I don't think there are any perfect albums- at least, not that I've heard. But the ones that I feel have come the closest are:

Colors by BTBAM
Act II: The Meaning of, And All Things Regarding Ms. Leading by The Dear Hunter
Kezia by Protest the Hero
Menos El Oso by Minus the Bear
The Greatest of All Lost Arts by Lower Definition
