Great albums

I'm bored so I thought I'd start a little fun thread for people to list albums that worked 'as an album as a whole' rather than just the odd song.  I've got albums with plenty of hits on but the odd filler track seems to kill the flow of it, or it may be the artist had a completely different style for the second half that again may break the flow of listening to it.  Some albums don't have any killer songs but they just work well as a whole. 

Compilations aren't allowed as that's cheating frown
And no comments about others' taste... just list your albums of choice.



Here's my choice off the top of my head (the first two being my main choice):

Guns 'n' Roses  - Appetite for Destruction
The Prodigy - Music for the Jilted Generation
Michael Jackson - Thriller & Bad (both were good)
Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygene
Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland (the original vinyl playing order, not the updated single CD one)
Meat Loaf - Bat out of Hell
Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory?
Nirvana - Nevermind
Ultravox - Vienna
