Truly great albums with no duff moments

    As I look at my 100 favourite albums of all time, I realise very few are without fault. A duff track here or a naff vocal there. May be I am picky but even DSOTM and St Peppers have their weaker moments. The closest I get is Ziggy Stardust and strangely Camel Alive Record ( do not like their studio albums).

    So what are your ' perfect 10/10 albums?
    What are the duff moments that prevent your favourite albums being perfect?

    First 3 Velvet Underground albums. 'Radio City' by Big Star.

    Almost every Beatles' album has a duff track, usually with Ringo singing.

    Steely Dan - everything up to Aja, but especially Countdown to Ecstasy

    Joni Mitchell - Blue

    Kings of Convenience are another band with high quality control. I rate "Riot on an Empty Street" as their best effort.

    Perfect: A Love Supreme, Crescent, Miles Smiles, Saxophone Colossus, Clear Spot, The Richard D James Album, One Size Fits All, In On The Kill Taker, Raw Power, Hex, If You Want Blood and many many others.

    Spoiled: WTF was Miles Davis or Columbia playing at when they stuck Nothing Like You on the end of Sorcerer? It would be my favorite Miles LP without it and it appears to bear no relation at all to the rest of the material

    Great album but let down by the use of the inferior acoustic version of "In Tears".

    BTW, I was one of the people that got Geffen to re-release it as a 2CD set. :)

    Can't think of any duff moments on blood Sugar Sex Magik by the Chillies - some songs I like less than other but I think it all fits together brilliantly as a whole.

    Also the Pixies Doolittle is great from start to think of it- come to think of it so is come on pilgrim and surfa rosa. Nothing on them I'd skip when listening.
