This week's traditional Wednesday Question saw the people of UG community disusing the matter of artists with flawless discographies, or artists whose opus you should own in full.

We received A LOT of votes and nominations through over 1,100 comments, all of which were summed up into a Top 25 rundown.

Before kicking things off, we'll point out that honorable mentions include Jimi Hendrix, TesseracT, Haken, Ghost, Jim Croce, The White Stripes, Dio, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Periphery, Audioslave, and Eagles.

We'll keep things concise and on-point, the rundown awaits below.

A few words from UG community:

joseph51700: "I wish they would remaster some of the earlier stuff. I think it would be appreciated by a lot more people with better production. 'New American Gospel' is mostly what I'm referring to. The songs aren't bad but there is just something I can't quantify in words about the sound that album has that just hits my ears wrong. LoG has a great line of albums though with that being said."

Jumacas: "Seriously, every step in the way, in every level is strategically thought out and executed. I think they deserve more credit for their actual music, as much as their shows, music videos and artwork. It's incredible to think how much every little detail in every aspect works in perfect unison."

    On #1 you're missing Jar of Flies and Sap you sick fuckers.
    Rebel Scum
    They're EP's mang. Looks like they're only considering studio albums for their interpretation of "discography." They missed Incesticide from Nirvana also probably for the same reason. Either that or they just lifted whatever it said in wikipedia.
    angusisking
    What's their excuse for leaving out Magical Mystery Tour from the Beatles discography? Sure it's a movie soundtrack, but a complete studio album nonetheless. And seeing as they included Yellow Submarine....

    Eps don't count dude
    GGAllinsPizza
    EP's are considered discography, and consist of original material. Hell JOF has almost as much time as Van Halen's 1984 and they consider that a full album? It's just a name bro lol
    RyanP1121
    This list is just dumb. I enjoy Bowie, but a flawless 25 albums? Rush with 20? C'mon, this question is just silly, and any band with a prayer has a shorter discography. The nature of a 40 year career with a huge number of albums makes it impossible to be "flawless."
    Bedside Shred
    I think people were basically just voting for their favorite bands. I'd say the only band that really belongs up there is Opeth.
    lordfatwallet
    Massive Queen fan here,but the Hot space(1982)album is f**king turrible,and pissed off the fans massively.
    imbatman1312
    I don't agree with the bowie one, in my opinion his career hit a low point after scary monsters and didnt pick up again until black tie white noise. Then again that's just me
    TMoreau15
    Not sure how Pink Floyd wasn't included because some of their experimental stuff is "too weird" but Bowie is still on here. He has so much trash (even more gold, but still plenty of trash). You can't make that many albums and not have stinkers, especially when you're trying to push boundaries. Look at Neil Young and Dylan. I'm assuming that's why nobody tried to nominate King Crimson or Jethro Tull.
    ZPinkZeppelinS
    It was mainly the post Waters stuff that was getting bashed in the comments. Which I really love, but I'm biased because I love everything by Floyd. But, a lot of people consider those albums bad.
    TMoreau15
    How does the post Waters stuff get bashed? It's really good. I thought people would be talking about Ummagumma (specifically the side each band member did their own individual pieces of music for) and stuff in that vein from the Barrett days.
    ZPinkZeppelinS
    Yeah I totally agree, Ummagumma is probably my least favorite. The band themselves have even considered it not to really be a Floyd album. But, the Barrett stuff gets high praise usually.
    ryancide
    didn't bowie intentionally record some shitty records to get out of his management contract in the early 80's? the period just before "let's dance"
    imbatman1312
    No, lets dance was the start of that. The 5 records before lets dance (scary monsters, the berlin trilogy and station to station) were his best
    Eduardocardoso
    Nirvana? Ok. Gonna start listening to Baroness though, everybody says good things about them
    ZPinkZeppelinS
    Discovered them last year and I've been obsessed ever since. One of the most talented bands I've heard in a long time, musically and lyrically. If you have a chance to see them live, do it.
    PRSguitars87
    Yeah but.... Arent they just a cheap mastodon ripoff?
    FateDenied
    Every band that makes use of groovy stonerlike riffs is a Mastodon ripoff. "rolls eyes"
    troutman
    Don't know about them being a "ripoff", but to me Baroness will always be the poor man's Mastodon. Bear in mind that I have listened to all of Baroness's music multiple times. I gave it an honest try and although I found some great stuff (Rays on Pinion), I am mostly bored by them.
    maxpow77
    Dude they're so good! It's one of my favorite bands at the moment, everything in the band feels perfect and the artwork is amazing
    OneEyed
    Why do I have a dozen Nirvana albums but they only listed 3 above? Looks like I have about 6 or 7 AIC albums too...
    AaronianKenrod
    Because they only released three studio albums. The rest were live or compilations.
    Bollockser
    MTV Unplugged is their 2nd biggest selling release. It should have made the list. Additionally, the With The Lights Out box-set was the highest selling box-set ever until the Beatles 2009 remasters.
    Brandon1993
    Doesn't matter. They only had 3 albums. Bleach, Nevermind, and In Utero. Thats it.
    Anjohl
    And arguably only 2, since "Bleach" was an indy release.
    Brandon1993
    That argument makes no sense since I don't see how that makes Bleach no longer an album.
    Bollockser
    Last time I checked, "discography" includes EPs, Singles, Live Albums, Box-Sets, Compilations, etc. Dont know why UG fucked this up, no one ever said ALBUMS ONLY!! Over half of NIRVANA's material is not on one of these 3 albums and/or is unreleased. And the example of AiC, some of their best shit is on EPs which were not counted. Stupid.
    Cigman
    I agree with you Bollockser, but UG was obviously targeting studio albums. But I'm glad to see Rush and The Smiths on the list. I've never heard a song by them I didn't like.
    Rands2113
    Yellow and Green is so awesome. Not to take away from the rest of the discography. But such a sick double LP!
    joseph51700
    I'm very happy with the top 3 winners but... Elliott Smith should have at least been on the list. Seven albums that were all masterpieces. If you haven't ever listened to him before you should start now.
    real182
    Elliott is one of my absolute favorites, his discography is flawless and he would be a nice spark for this predictable list. But this is UG.
    zack2k
    as I recall isn't the late Elliott Smith an alt rocker or at least "pop rock"?
    shosh-jort
    No he's a mostly acoustic(?) singer songwriter sort of deal from the 90's - he wrote some really personal poetic songs and he's more along the lines of neutral milk hotel, nick drake, and sufjan stevens
    Shaico
    Shhh, UGers do not know the names of the artists you are listing, despite them being every popular /mu/core artists. Don't expect too much from kids on this site.
    caged butterfly
    Also would have included sufjan Stevens to this list as well
    joseph51700
    It's weird, you would think that an Elliott Smith fan like myself would gravitate towards something like Sufjan Stevens but when I listened to him it just really fell flat for me. A lot of songs just had a pretentious sound I thought. I don't know... I might go back and give him a second listen. In the past I have reacted negatively to artists on the first listen and later I really like them with a second chance.
    caged butterfly
    I had the same feeling about him the first time I heard him. You just gotta give him a few more listens. Illinois is a fantastic album to start with.
    badfish_lewis
    No Buckley eh? Ah well you can't win em all
    Rebel Scum
    In Jeff's case one studio album is hardly a discography. His Dad had some dud albums too like Lorca and Star Sailor. They had good songs but not great albums imo.
    GenerationKILL
    This list is garbage and only serves to reaffirm that UG commenters are clueless. For example, David Bowie?!! Really? His 90s stuff was utterly cringe-worthy. Plus Michael Jackson?! I'm sorry but Invincible was a critical mess. "Renegades" by RATM was a covers album and possibly the lowest point in their career. Once again, this list is also littered with metal entries thanks to the bias of all the 20-something UG users. No Stevie Ray Vaughn?! No Bob Marley? Not even the Police who released an incredible catalog? No Cream?! I guess Parliament also doesn't make the cut, despite every single album of theirs is amazing. The same could be said for some newer artists and bands. Muse comes to mind pretty much right away for example.
    selkayann
    I love Muse but The 2nd Law is utter garbage in my opinion. Cut it down and you've got a PERFECT discography.
    landaluiz
    Fucking Alice in Chains, my fav band, great to see them top the likes of Zeppelin, the Smiths and Rush
    Jalopy1919
    Overall a good list but I'd have to disagree with a few. In particular Deftones have released a few duds as of late IMO
    rufizonfire
    Same with Radiohead. Great band but not with a "Flawless" discography. People don't seem understand the word "Flawless" here.
    Shaico
    Radiohead? You mean one of the most critically acclaimed band of all time that's not only extremely popular but also contends for album of the year with every new album release? I'd actually say they're extremely low on the list. Every album they've release is a 9/10 save for Pablo Honey, which is only seen as a weak album due to being compared to the rest of Radiohead's portfolio following it. If Radiohead is 12 and post-grunge douche act Alter Bridge is 11, you have to question the tastes of UGers.
    rufizonfire
    A lot of these bands shouldn't be on here. If Radiohead's latest release is "Flawless" I obviously don't know the meaning of the word. I agree with AIC being #1 partly because I've been a fan since the beginning and each new release has never let me down which is rare for a band with several albums.
    N7Crazy
    > If Radiohead's latest release is "Flawless" I obviously don't know the meaning of the word The new album was met with more or less universal acclaim from both critics and fans, so I think that's just, like, your opinion, man.
    Myryan
    King of limbs is terrible and Pablo Honey isnt up to the high standard of the rest of their stuff.
    Shaico
    I mean, I'd get it if you had it the other way around. But King of Limbs isn't terrible. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the album. In fact, I personally don't find Radiohead's discography flawless in my personal taste. Pablo Honey isn't great and King of Limbs is a bit boring, though the live versions of the songs can easily compete with any other album. But as the public's collective opinion states, Radiohead's discography is close to as consistent and "flawless" as a band could get with the amount of studio albums they've released. And I think that's what really matters.
    jimmyslashpage
    LOVE Rush. Seriously one of the best concerts I've ever been to, but there are some big flaws in some of their 1990s stuff. That can be said with a lot of these artists though. Bowie's early albums are pretty unrefined. Led Zeppelin's post-Physical Graffiti work isn't flawless by any stretch. Solid list of music though!
    jude.chavez.180
    Such Bullshit nobody is perfect and there are plenty of flawed albums on this list even from bands I absolutely love
    Octane Twisted
    IMO King Crimson should have been included, but whatever. They have A LOT of phenomenal and even game changing albums and even their less good (like Islands, Three Of A Perfect Pair) record are still way above average. And honestly, how many bands could produced an album like The Power To Believe after 50 years of existence. Fripp in his 70's write more evil shit than most metal bands in their prime.
    Anjohl
    It's not a list of bands with great albums in their discography, it's a list of bands with FLAWLESS disocraphies. Plus, KC's rotating roster instantly disqualifies the act, as who exactly are we voting for? A brand name?
    scottishmob
    I get where you're coming from - but it's the same band. Lots of the groups voted had line up changes. Ultimately it comes down to whether they share the same name imo. I also really thought they'd be on there - I mean, even if it was just Fripp who they picked. That dude only creates solid music and he is essentially the father of prog rock.
    Alex011
    Most of these are bands with nigh-flawless discographies except for an ugly duckling or 2. I can see where they get the love though. The one band I don't agree with it being on the list is LoG, if only because I feel like from Ashes to Resolution they all sound too similar, almost like they made Ashes over and over again, by Resolution it started to feel like they were playing it too safe.
    piotr.wisniewsk
    Pity that there's no Coroner on the list. All of their albums are solid pieces of Swiss technical thrash metal.
    tylersugarcarlo
    little bummed not to see Soundgarden on here, particularly when Audioslave got an honorable mention. sure, the last album wasn't amazing but it was still good.
    dj_bandulu
    I have been listening to Alice In Chains A LOT here lately. (Yes you forgot about Sap and Jar Of Flies, but also Black Gives Way To Blue and The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here) Also, I think Ghost and Graveyard should have been on the list as well.
    KBI2113
    Can Michael Jackson's "HIStory" truly be counted in his discography? It was 90% songs from other albums it seemed. It's still good, regardless.
    AlexGreat123
    The second disc was original material and awesome
    scottishmob
    It was - but man, I don't consider his discography as flawless at all. I'm astounded he was on here. HIStory might be my favorite album of his - but Invincible and the second half of Dangerous are really really spotty imo. After Bad overall his albums seemed to lose steam half way thru.
    nick9790
    I was surprised not to see Faith No More rank. I would have nominated Slash as well. The stuff with guns, the snakepit, his solo stuff, his features. all great. Good list, psyched to see Lamb. All worthy additions regardless of what else I would have included.
    Funnyname99
    Radiohead founded in 1985???? When they were 14??
    Brandon1993
    When the band Decapitated formed the members were aged 12 - 15. And now they're a pretty damn influential Death Metal band.
    JuggaloShow
    No Doors? OK. Which album wasn't good?
    ServetheSlaves
    I don't agree with Alice in Chains being #1, Black Gives Way to Blue was really good but The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here was pretty bad in my opinion.

    I agree. Everyone loved it but it wasn't really for me. And I loved Black Gives Way... Devil had some pretty good songs and hooks here and there, but overall it was pretty lackluster. The riffs and vocals were pretty boring IMO.

    I felt that the album was a bit of a slow burner and because of that it was a little hard to make it through in one sitting. Usually I listen to AIC albums all the way through without stopping but not on that one which surprised me the first listen through. However, I still feel that the album was strong but its better to listen to the songs a few at a time in order to appreciate it more. The album could have certainly used more high energy stuff like Phantom Limb to keep the gas pedal down. The only song I never really warmed up to was the title track.

    I had fun listening to The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. I listen to that album like 3 times in a role when it first came out.I hope they play some songs off of that album when I see AIC in September.

    I disagree, but you're welcome to your opinion. Voices, Stone, Low Ceiling, Phantom Limb, Breath On a Window... There's a lot of great material on the album and it's pretty solid, in my opinion.

    Iron Maiden... UHHHHH

    I'm a HUGE Maiden fan, and while you can argue that X-Factor and Virtual XI weren't as bad as everyone says, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone agree with you that they are "flawless" efforts.

    So Tool is better than Hendrix and SRV?
    drgonzo1013
    Not saying who's better or worse.... That's a matter of opinion, but I definitely expected to see Hendrix on this list
    miloshninp
    Yeah. Especially considering this site is called Ultimate Guitar, and Hendrix is like... Hendrix...

    Seriously - every album he did was revolutionary. The lack of Hendrix is disturbing to me haha

    You have the Beatles rated super low on this list, Zeppelin made the list even with God knows how many hits are now known to be stolen, and some how the pretentious stench of the Smiths and Morrisey made this list. Why would any one take this list seriously?

    Just another embarrassingly bad list by UGers. Y'all need to expand your music tastes beyond cringy douche metal and hard rock. Alter Bridge and System of a Down above Radiohead and The Smiths? What even got Alter Bridge on this list? I'm dumbfounded.
    xMetalMessiahx
    Alter Bridge honestly has written 4 albums that I know I personally could listen to from front to back and enjoy every single song. The same can be said with System of a Down... Mind you, I totally agree this list is garbage. Of course Tool Rammstein and Soad (as much as I love them all) made the high spots... And over THE BEATLES who have one of the most flawless discographies ever.

    Michael Jackson had a flawless discog but no Pink Floyd? Are you fucking kidding me? Standards sure are low around here.

    I agree... To a point. I still think that no artist in the history of music has a "flawless" discography. But Pink Floyd is as close as it gets. That said, I'm happy to see AiC grab number one. They don't get enough recognition. Even though, in my opinion, "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" is far from flawless.

    Hypnotize/Mesmerize were ruined by Daron Malakian deciding to take the lead vocal role. Dude sounds like a cat with it's paw stuck in a blender.

    i can agree to most of this list. but there is some of the albums listed i've yet to hear. i guess this makes for a solid weekend of listening to good music.

    So with Steven Wilson they've missed Blackfield, No Man, Storm Corrosion and Bass Communion. Try again guys

    All this vote proves is the simplistic naivety and superficiality of the voters. The Devin Townsend fanboys came out to play (every new album released just dilutes his previous body of work) whilst the Queen fans seem to have glossed over how much Hot Space sucked balls.
    tsleezer
    I wanted the Floyd... But more than happy to see Alice in Chains get the number 1 spot!

    I'm really surprised not to see The Police on this list.....5 albums all great.....4 voted in the 500 best albums of all time.
