    With your choices I can agree with, based on the fact I have the albums in question The Beatles, Bob Marley, Neil Young and Bob Dylan. Led Zeppelin I lack Physical Graffiti and U2 I do not have Zooropa and Pop. With Miles Davis I lack Big Fun and Get Up With It. Radiohead I am not a fan and I only own one album (De Stiljl) by White Stripes.

    Couldn’t agree more. Seems to me that the vast majority of replies here would fit better in an “artists who made six consecutive albums that I enjoy” thread.

    Joni Mitchell and the Beatles are the only ones I’d make a case for as far as rock.

    I mean, I love that whole run of Steely Dan records, but - looking at them objectively - there are weak spots.

    Love me some Spoon but I’d be tempted to go backwards a couple of albums and end the list at Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga myself... I REALLY do not dig Transference but I really like A Series of Sneaks a whole damn lot. Great choice either way!

    Any Spoon list for me would have to start with A Series of Sneaks. That’s my favorite one!

    Nobody’s mentioned Steely Dan. Can’t Buy A Thrill to Gaucho, that’s 7 almost faultless albums

    Looks like Miles electric period was covered, which I agree with, but I also can’t live without the 2nd Quintet’s output transitioning into the electric period.

    -ESP
    -Miles Smiles
    -Sorcerer
    -Nefertiti
    -Miles In The Sky
    -Filles De Kilimanjaro

    Honestly just give me everything :laugh:
