Bullet-proof albums

Albums (NOT 'greatest hits) that every song is good. Yes, it's obviously subjective, but....
Here are some to get the idea:

    I saw Hole open up for Tool, I saw Bread open up for Meatloaf, and I saw The Doors open up for Bad Company.

    I saw Motley Crue open for Ozzy, I saw Metallica open up for Ozzy, Saxon open for Iron Maiden..

    Crue, and Metallica destroyed Ozzy, they were very hungry and ate everything in their path during the early years of their careers..
    Even if the whole world knows
    I don't give a damn about what they think
    I don't have to stand up to your gun
    I don't have to sit down when you say
    Tell me I'm overboard
    The truth is you just want to see me sink
    If there's any room left on that ship
    You don't have to save any room for me
    Cause I've got my own boat (even when it rains)
    I'm doing my own thing (even when it rains)
    And I will stay afloat - even when it rains
    Cause I've got my own boat
    Row, row your boat
    Row, row your boat
    Row your boat

    I saw Metallica open for Ozzy in 1986. I went because of Metallica, even though I had already seen them about 25 times by that point.

    I went to see Iron Maiden in Montreal TWICE, but I didn't have tickets and they were sold-out both times. I really should have seen them back in the 80's because I had (and still have) about 30 pieces of their vinyl from between 1980 and 1984.

    And as far as the bands listed in my above post, I have not seen any of them. Those statements were all intended to be metaphorical. :p

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    ...

    Just out of -- academic -- curiosity :)

    How often do you listen to Within You, Without You?

    Now, it's not a bad track, and it's at least a bit historically significant as a touchpoint in the introduction of Indian music (or at least the instruments and style of classical Indian music) to young Western ears... but it's a little out there relative to the rest of the album.

    To quote "Jennings" from Animal House:
    It's a distinct possibility.
