You mean Number of the Beast? I'm surprised it's been mentioned even more than once in here, as though I would agree it's got some good classic Maiden tracks, it's certainly not a contender for perfect Maiden in my books. Somewhere in Time and Seventh Son are the closest to perfect they've ever been for me.

edit: sorry, I see you've already noticed the mistake

Some of my favourite "perfect" albums... (IMO)
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
Kind of Blue - Miles Davis
Sgt. Peppers - The Beatles
Quadrophenia - The Who
Sabotage - Black Sabbath
The Chemical Wedding - Bruce Dickinson

Perfect album? Doesn't exist. If I had to pick though...

John 5 - Songs for Sanity
Avenged Sevenfold - City of Evil
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
Children of Bodom - Are You Dead Yet?

It'd probably be one of those. All of this stuff just comes down to opinion, really.

What they're doing doesn't seem all that different from all of the other hardcore/metalcore/whateveryouwanttocallit-core bands out there, but then again, that's not exactly my favorite genre of music.

Black Veil Brides were a breath of fresh air. I did enjoy their stuff.

No I don't think so. Even my favourite albums like Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Led Zeppelin IV, and Houses of the Holy, are far from perfect.

Also, I forgot to post a list of a few of my "perfect" albums:

Broken Social Scene- You Forgot it In People
The Pains of Being Pure At Heart- Belong (Possibly my favorite album from this year)
Alaska in Winter- Dance Party In the Balkans
Haley Bonar- Big Star
The Comas- Conductor
Ben Folds & Nick Hornby- Lonely Avenue
Carissa's Wierd- Songs About Leaving
Pinehurst Kids- Bleed it Dry(Got it a week ago, and I've listened to it all the way through a good ten times already)
And just about every The Hold Steady record sans Heaven is Whenever

Texas Flood by SRV and Handful of Blues by Robben Ford I think are two examples of perfectly written and recorded blues albums.

Actually, if the Use Your Illusion's albums can count as one, then yes, that is a perfect album.

Music from "The Elder" by Kiss.

Just kidding, Strange Universe by Mahogany Rush, in my eyes is a perfect album, as is Purple Rain by Prince and the Revolution

EDIT: Also, Edges of Twilight by the Tea Party

The Empyrean - John Frusciante

I'm not a spiritual man by any means, but every track on that album generates the sort of feeling that only a higher power could create.

Also, Traced In Air by Cynic

Both albums are journeys which can't be fully appreciated by hearing an individual track. In my opinion, that's what makes perfection in terms of an album.

Lil B - Im Gay
Electric Wizard - Dopethrone

For me, The Burning Red by Machine Head and Nevermind by Nirvana are perfect.

no, people throw "perfect" around way too often.

oftentimes it's just "my fav albums" which is ok just don't put a "perfect" label on it.
