Can't believe I forgot David Bowie, Velvet Underground and Jimi Hendrix. I wouldn't say there's a golden trio for the Stones though, it's well documented that their run of brilliance was four albums: Beggar's Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main St. 

For Led Zeppelin, I would divide it into: 

Early years: Led Zeppelin, II, III

Golden Trio: IV, Houses Of The Holy, Physical Graffiti

Later years: Presence, In Through The Out Door, Coda

I'm not trying to speak for other forum posters, but I don't think that HMBeatlesfan realized that these picks had to be consecutive, which I didn't realize either until right now.

Here's one that no one here but I will care about, but I'm going to post it anyway. ahdn_paul_01

Muse: Origin Of Symmetry, Absolution, Black Holes And Revelations

Edit: On second thoughts, this should really be Absolution, BH&R, and The Resistance.

Second edit: On third thoughts, either of those would do nicely. ahdn_george_01

If you don't count grey area albums, Sgt. Pepper 's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles, and Abbey Road work for The Beatles.

No, it doesn't. You may cast Yellow Submarine  as a grey album, but it has been repeatedly argued on this thread, and rejected by those who accept The Beatles canon.

I believe that if side B doesn't even contain The Beatles, then Yellow Submarine is a The Beatles/George Martin Orchestra split album and is a grey area album, it's not like Abbey Road or Revolver where everybody agrees that it's an album. Hell, Steven Baxter, the person who created The Twelfth Album fantasy album, refuses to call it a proper Beatles album.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.....lfth_Album

My point is that because not everybody labels Yellow Submarine as a proper Beatles album that it should be labeled as a grey area album along with Capitol Mystery Tour and i did say if you ignore grey area albums.

That is a rejected opinion on this forum. However hard you want to argue, Yellow Submarine  was an album credited to The Beatles, released in the UK between The White Album  and Abbey Road Magical Mystery Tour  was a Capitol album that did not receive a UK release until 1976.

Can we at least agree that Yellow Submarine is a cheap excuse for an album.

Also, let me say it correctly.

If you ignore Yellow Submarine and MMT, Sgt. Pepper , White Album , and Abbey Road is a great trinity.

As much as i like the 4 original tracks, i think it's The Beatles most overrated album because half of it doesn't even contain The Beatles.

David Bowie:

Hunky Dory (1971), The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (1972), Aladdin Sane (1973)

I just came here to post that a-hard-days-night-john-6

I was also going to suggest his Berlin trilogy (Low, "Heroes", and Lodger), but perhaps for a holier trinity you could skip Lodger and use Scary Monsters instead, but that's not quite abiding by the rules... a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Edit: I see Flyingbrians has already mentioned the Berlin trilogy. john-lennon-salute_gif

Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin III, Led Zeppelin IV, Houses Of The Holy,

David Bowie: Young Americans, Station To Station, Low or maybe Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Alladin Sane
  

All of the above. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

(S2S, Low, Heroes might be my vote, personally... jury's still out on Bowie's second Holy Trinity, but I can definitely get behind Hunky, Ziggy, Aladdin.)

Also Zeppelin's first three albums. And from III to Houses. And from IV to Physical Graffiti too... beatlemaniacs_02_gif

Two sets of trinities I personally think deserve mentioning:

The Kinks - Something Else By The Kinks (1967), The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society (1968) and Arthur (or The Decline and Fall of The British Empire) (1969)

The Monkees - Headquarters (1967), Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn and Jones Ltd. (1967), and The Birds, The Bees and The Monkees (1968)

This band, so influenced by the Beatles, deserves a mention.

Big Star:  #1 Record (1972), Radio City (1974), Third/Sister Lovers (rec. 1974, rel. 1978)

The only three albums that Memphis' Big Star released all sold poorly, despite their winking appellative optimism.  Their problems were many, but lack of acclaim by both critics and peers wasn't among them.  All three made the Rolling Stone "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list.  They developed a cult following and influenced countless bands in the 80's and beyond.  The Replacements (Let It Be , 1984, Tim, 1985, Pleased to Meet Me, 1987) wrote a song in tribute to the band's co-founder called "Alex Chilton."  Peter Buck of R.E.M. (Murmur, 1983, Reckoning, 1984, Fables of the Reconstruction, 1985, for starters) once said, "We've yet to make a record as good as Big Star's Third."

"Caught a glance in your eyes, and fell through the skies"

Alex Chilton, you are missed.
