Albums that are so good, you listen from start to finish without hitting skip.

Oh there are too many to list. I will say exactly none of them are from the mid 90's forward. The music just isnt that good and the artists are pathetic industry evolved puppets.

#1 FULL album. Rush 2112 hands down
2. Judas Priest British Steel
3. Led Zepplin IV
4. AC/DC Back in Black
5. Pink Floyd Dark Side of the moon. Also The Wall

Too many more but again its all older REAL music and not a single "Pop" album has ever come close to being a must play thru album. Others like Boston, Pat Benatar, Styx, REO Speedwagon, Iron Maiden. Cant forget several Queen albums are also must play thru's
I think we can be friends based on the fact that two of your 5 were already on my list when I came here.

@PsyBorg covered my first two with 2112 and the Dark Side of the moon. I'll add one more, Gv'mt Mule's "Live with a little help from our friends". The second half has some really long cuts but they are all great for playing on long drives.

Playlists (aka modern mix tapes) are not really comparable to the good old days of Album Oriented Rock where artists would lay down a whole album that progressed,flowed, told a story, etc. in a way that has been lost in recent decades.
exactly.
My uncle rearranged "Fear Inoculum" by Tool so the songs flowed better than how the album originally is. It's some really good music.

Talk Talk - Spirit of Eden
Radiohead - OK Computer
Jane Weaver - Modern Kosmology
Black Country, New Road - For the first time

Probably not everyone’s cup of tea here, but all magnificent if you give them your time.

Actually I forgot one of my ALL time favorite albums. You reminded me it fits in this thread nicely after posting "with a little help from my friends" If you guys dont bust a gut when Yosemite Sam starts singing help I feel bad for you as you have no soul.

yes Rick Wakeman (keyboard wizard for YES) Journey to the center of the earth is another. My older sister turned me on to that album when I was like 8 years old. three dog night was another group with full albums of great music in that era. Jim Croce too... Man the floodgates just burst.. Im gonna be you tubing old music all night..
Got to see him once live in Washington DC. We had the best seats in the house, right in the middle where the music was best. Turns out they put the sound mixer man in that spot, so we had to sit in row B!! And no one sat in Row A. We were about 20 feet away. So close we could see (sometimes) his fingers moving....

Favorite musicians "Moody Blues", Rick Wakeman, Yanni, Harry Chapin.
