What are your favorite albums of music to listen to the entire way through? I mean albums that you love all the songs on, and don't think any are filler or mediocre? The albums that have songs that are similar enough that it forms a beautifully cohesive whole, but in which the songs are not so similar that they sound like they're repeating themselves? 

My favorites would be...

Megadeth - Rust in Peace
Soundgarden - Superunknown
Underoath - Define the Great Line
Jethro Tull - Aqualung
All That Remains - For We Are Many
As I Lay Dying - An Ocean Between Us
Opeth - Deliverance
Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin IV
Black Sabbath - Paranoid

There are many, but two stand out above all others for me:
Dream Theater, Metropolis Part II: Scenes From a Memory
Rush - Cygnux X-1 Book 2: Hemispheres

David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars

That's about the only album I can listen to start to finish.

I really try not to play favorites anymore with music. There are just so many awesome albums out there to list.

On the subject of metal, Asteriktos, or any other metal fans on the board, I urge you all to check out this little-known NWOBHM release.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3DftbXhcGc&feature=related

Truly a hidden gem among the short-lived movement, and one of its best full recordings IMO.

YES! The remaster just completely fails to capture the soul of the original IMO.

What do y'all metalheads think of the re-recorded version of "Bonded by Blood"?

David Bowie - The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars.
+1

Cock Sparrer : Shock Troops
+1

And since Achronos decided to make his unquotable, I apologize for the repeats-

The Beatles- Rubber Soul and Revolver (as well as pretty much any recording of their earlier stuff)

The Stooges- Raw Power

The Ramones- The Ramones and Rocket To Russia

Dead Boys- Young, Loud, and Snotty (as the Younger, Louder, and Snottier remix)

Bad Brains- Self titled

Dead Kennedys- Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables

Beastie Boys- License to Ill and Paul's Boutique

Run DMC- Raising Hell

Nirvana- Nevermind and In Utero. Also, while it was more of a compilation than an actual album, I have never hit the fast forward button on Incesticide.

Weezer- Self-titled Blue and Pinkerton

Green Day- Dookie

OutKast- every album

DC Talk- Nu Thang, Free At Last, and Jesus Freak

Newboys- Not Ashamed, Going Public, and Take Me To Your Leader

Jars of Clay- Self-titled

Wu Tang Clan- Enter the 36 Chambers

Nekromantix- Return of the Loving Dead

Mad Sin- Sweet and Innocent... Loud and Dirty

Zombie Ghost Train- Dealing the Death Card

The Dwarves- Every album, but I always feel the need for confession after....

I've not heard the Bonded By Blood rerelease (never a big Exodus fan). I haven't heard the RIP remaster either, but I do dislike the remasters that I have heard (except KIMB, which I'm not sure about).
