Perfect albums?

Do you believe it is possible for an album to be perfect? I do not, and to demonstrate, I'll use one of my favorites, Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Every single song on that record can be looked at as the best one, but still it seems like for every awesome line (It’s been a while since I watched the tube / Cause like a crip said, “I got way too many blues for any more bad news”) there's some stupid line (She find pictures in my e-mail / I sent this bitch a picture of my dick.) Besides that, everything else (the production, guest spots, etc) is as close to perfect as possible.

If you say yes, what albums do you think are perfect?

IMO, Crack the Skye is a perfect album. I love every second of it.

Same goes for all three Scale the Summit albums.

Who Will Survive in America and All of the Lights (Interlude) suck ass, and by that I mean are pretentious as hell.

Perfection is a subjective bias perception of something you wouldn't change, so I'd say it's possible for every album to be perfect.
For me, Machine Head's The Blackening, and The Colour and the Shape by the Foos are perfect.

There are a ton of albums I think are perfect, but that's only what I think.

That's my least favorite song on that whole album

Dark Fantasy ftw, simply for the Urkel line.
