The Greatest Whole Album Ever

Going through some older posts, I was a bit shocked to see just how many submissions the original version of this had. Even the late Andrew Breitbart dropped by to submit a few, one of which I almost picked (Devo's debut album).

So, have at it. Name the best. And no best-ofs, we are talking straight studio albums. Best-ofs are glorified mix-tapes. Live albums are ok. Because. Anyway, I really expanded my collection off the 2011 version, and would love to do that some more. After a bit I'll check to see if one really stands out and update the post. My submission below the fold.

Above the fold update, and the morons are restless.
150 200 250 350 400 450 500 600 700 800 900 1000 1100 comments in, and counting: #1 Dark Side of the Moon, #2 Back in Black, #3 Led Zepplin IV, #4 Who's Next, #5 Joshua Tree, #6 London Calling, #7 Van Halen, #8 The Cars, #9 Purple Rain, #10 Appetite for Destruction,, with Honorable Mentions to: Quadrophenia, Synchronicity, Making Movies, Los Angeles (X), Bloodletting, Pet Sounds, Armed Forces, Yellow Brick Road, Revolver, Holy Diver, Paulie's Boutique, Hysteria, OK Computer, Violator, and In the Court of the Crimson King. Hundreds more great submissions below.

To me, Brian Eno and David Bryne in their prime can't be topped, so here is, IMO, as good as good can get:

Talking Heads' Fear of Music. Every single track works, especially Mind, Air, and Drugs.
