    It really interests me what albums different people would consider to be perfect. My dad would easily say The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, my friend would say something like Nespithe by Demilich..
    4 of mine would be:
    Watching from a Distance by Warning
    The Atomic Bitchwax by The Atomic Bitchwax
    Monotheist by Celtic Frost
    The Black Waltz by Kalmah

    What albums would you consider to be perfect?

    It's pretty funny when people list albums with blatant flaws.
