Dark Side of the moon- comes.to mind

Not necessarily perfect

Ok computer - fitter happier is not great, but in the context of the album, it works

The Holy Bible - Manic Street Preachers

Rid of Me - PJ Harvey

Hospice - The Antlers...

If you have never come across Hospice, listen to it, it is some piece of work.

Hospice tells the story of a relationship between a hospice worker and a female patient suffering from terminal bone cancer, their ensuing romance, and their slow downward spiral as a result of the woman's traumas, fears, and disease as a metaphor for an abusive relationship. Frontman Peter Silberman has been reluctant to divulge explicit details regarding the meaning of the record, and the extent to which it is autobiographical. Silberman has described it as the story of an emotionally abusive relationship.

Here is a piece about it:

I've got two albums to check out.
I agree about rid of me.  Curiously, where do you rank it among her Albums?

I rate it very, very highly....sometimes I think it is the best, but i am also deeply in love with Let England Shake and Dry.

It battles for top spot with those two.

Dark Side of the Moon.  As a matter of fact, I listened to it earlier this week and came to the realisation this could be the best album ever made.

Fishermans Blues by The Waterboys

I kissed your lips and broke your heart
You
You were acting like it was the end of the world

The smart ass answer - All of them

But there's still a tendency for bands to put too much filler out there because of the damn CD, so what in the old days would be a 40-45 minute album becomes 55-65 and a double album these days.

I think the 40-45 minute album was the perfect length.
