Queen and The Beatles are tied in my book for greatest band of all time. The Beatles, however, don't have a perfect album to me. The closest was Abbey Road. Made in Heaven, while probably not the best Queen album, is, by the fact of it not having a bad or mediocre song(to me, at least), a perfect album.

Tough one. I'd say these at the very least come very, very close:

Revolver - The Beatles

Rubber Soul - The Beatles

Pet Sounds - The Beach Boys

After the Goldrush - Neil Young

Harry - Harry Nilsson

Sail Away - Randy Newman

The Band (self-titled)

Blonde on Blonde - Bob Dylan

John, The Wolf King of LA - John Phillips

The Stone Roses (self-titled)

Revolver is the only Beatles album, as mentioned in the Beatles only, but otherwise identical thread.

Yeah, I'd be lying if I said that thread didn't give me inspiration for this one. However, I felt this one was necessary because this covers all albums, not only the Beatles, and can lead to deeper discussion.

Rubber Soul, Revolver, Pepper, and Abbey Road from The Beatles to me all qualify.  I don't think there is a bad song on any of them.  Even stuff like Maxwell's Silver Hammer is decent.  When I'm 64 sometimes gets skipped, but I don't think that's a bad song either.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.
