      Bands with just one perfect album -

      Beach Boys - Pet Sounds
      Sex Pistols - Nevermind The Bollocks
      Blondie - Parallel Lines
      Eels - Beautiful Freak

      Been listening to The Beach Boys recently and made reminded me how incredible some of their work was. I think everyone would be unanimous in saying this was THE one perfect album for The Beach Boys. They might have what many feel to be their only great album but it might just possibly be the greatest of all time. If only Smile had been fully flourished because the sessions they released back in 2011 were incredible.

      Totally agree. The Beach Boys were unbelievable musicians. A lot of people think of them as just a standard pop, bubble gum surf band and they were so much more. Their use of string quartets, new instruments and new recording technologies were revolutionary. Not too mention their harmonizing.  After listening to Pet Sounds Lennon and McCartney wrote Sgt. Pepper.  They said they wanted to make an album that was as good as Pet Sounds. 
      Beach Boys are so much more than a surf band. Brian Wilson is easily a top 10 musician, writer of all time.

      Completely agree. I think their surf pop/rock was pure pop perfection as well but they really did something no other band has come close to with Pet Sounds and Smile. For Brian Wilson and co to do it without the kind of pretentiousness that too many music acts feel they must display to show their creative and original side made them even more brilliant in my view. Just a level of creativity and ingenuity that came naturally to Wilson.

      Yes Pet Sounds is just unbelievable. And Smile is regrettably the greatest lost masterpiece in the history of music - such a shame what happened with that.

      After that, I was always of the opinion that everything after was pretty poor, but Sunflower and Surf's Up from 1970/71 were both very good albums. Obviously not at the level of Pet Sounds but critically, those albums were very well received and are well worth listening to and are arguably two hidden gems considering they didn't do much commercially.

      Has anyone seen the new film Love & Mercy? Only seen the trailer, but the Paul Dano bits look really good, but the John Cusack bits look naff - for a start, Cusack looks nothing like Brian Wilson.

      Probably get a few funny looks for this but waiting for the new Drake album to drop so had his 'Take Care' album on repeat. I love my hip hop and R&B and loved Biggie and Tupac, Jay Z, etc but that album.

      It is my favourite Hip Hop/R&B album ever now. So different. Jam packed with gorgeous sounds and beats it just oozes style. Night time music. If you've only ever heard his stuff that gets played on the radio and been put off but like that kind of stuff then you're missing out. No gangster bollocks just stylish music with clear lyrics.

      Excellent. Perfect album for me.

      Not a band but ya know.

      I really like "Brothers and Sisters" by the Allman Brothers Band. "Wasted Words," "Jessica," "Southbound" and of course one of all-time my favorites, "Ramblin' Man." Great album!

      "perfect live albums" that doesn't include "Live at the Apollo," "Live at Leeds," "Frampton Comes Alive," "At Fillmore East" and "One More From the Road"? Surely you jest!
