Gotta mention LCD Soundystem’s original trilogy – self-titled (2005), Sound of Silver (2007) and This Is Happening (2010). No other band this millennium brings me so much catharsis with their music and lyrics.

I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”

My grandparents owned this album when I was a child, it was an early favourite. There’s a 1975 picture of me listening to it, in fact:

Been into these cats BIG TIME as of late

  

I’d go Katy Lied/Royal Scam/Aja for that second trio, myself.  apple02

 

  

I wanted Gaucho in there at the end, but if we include Katy Lied we can bridge the gap and make it a holy septet

Heh. The line”But I’m losing my edge to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent. And they’re actually really, really nice.” always makes me laugh.

I always speak up for the neglected “Name of this Band…” over SMS, but I do appreciate the “Tongues” songs more there than in the studio takes. (And of course the concert film is a whole nother level of excellent…)

Fleetwood Mac deserves a mention here and they haven’t had one, I don’t think? I would certainly nominate
Fleetwood Mac (1975)
Rumours (1977)
Tusk (1979)

I also think of Paul Simon’s albums
Hearts and Bones (1983)
Graceland (1986)
The Rhythm of the Saints (1990)
as a trio, but that’s probably because they each contain a song about Carrie Fisher. ahdn_george_06

If you count Tom Petty, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as equivalent (which YouTube Music does… ahdn_paul_01) that gives you
Full Moon Fever (1989)
Into The Great Wide Open (1991)
Wildflowers (1994)
… bending the rules a bit, but, given a) the sheer epicness of this trio and b) the fact that Tom was primarily responsible for the songwriting on all three, I think it at least deserves a sort of honorable mention. ahdn_john_08_gif

And what reminded me of this (rather glorious) thread was that my friend mentioned that Porcupine Tree had something of a holy trinity in In Absentia (2002), Deadwing (2005), and Fear of a Blank Planet (2007).

Saw this same subject in a twitter thread the other day, saw lots of Pink Floyd, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, other artists mentioned in this thread. 

Love that stretch of Tom Petty albums, definitely fits the criteria, three straight all timers. 

Have Simon and Garfunkel been mentioned yet with Parsley Sage […], Bookends, and Bridge Over Troubled Water? Seems to be that most of my favorite Bands, The Band, The Who, Pink Floyd, Steely Dan, Beatles, Beach Boys , Dylan, Rolling Stones, have done this at some point.
