Music is subjective so an album can be perfect to one person and not another. I consider an album perfect when every song is great and it's enjoyable start to finish.

I would disagree a little bit, for an album to be perfect (to me) it has to be an original album, not a retrospective or greatest hits, that to me is cheating, it has to perfectly crafted from end to end, almost no albums meet that standard, almost every album, even the great ones, have that middle of side two filler track or two.

Johnny Cash Live at Fulsom for instance, I'm not even a Cash fan but the album is perfect, every track in the right place, if you put the same songs in a different order it would still be great but it wouldn't be perfect.

The self titled album from Asia, one of my favorite Super Bands. Musically every song is incredible and hooks you.

Late to this party but...

Pearl Jam - 10
Live - Throwing Copper
Green Day - Dookie
Weezer - Blue Album
Wu-Tang - 36 Chambers
Radiohead - OK Computer
Nirvana - Nevermind

I'd also throw in Neil Young - Live at Massey Hall, that albums gold. First time he performed Old Man live.

Know who didn't stand the test of time? Blink 182. TBH, I didn't like them at the time, with the exception of a couple of guilty-pleasure songs, but holy crap that one dude has the whiniest voice and their lyrics are so juvenile and crappy.

Pet Sounds was mentioned I do think it was a perfect album.

I would say that Modest Mouse Good News for People who Love Bad News. Hard to choose one of theirs but this band is next level stuff.

Appetite for Destruction by GNR
Nevermind by Nirvana
DAMN Kendrick Lamar (won a pulitzer prize)
Twisted Dark Fantasy by Kanye
Dark Side of the Moon / The Wall by Pink Floyd

You know, I'd call you out on this post, but the Bill Evans album you posted is the reasons I went to Village Vanguard when I was in New York, so carry on.

I agree, these guys should have been able to ride the grunge wave to worldwide stardom, or at the very least Canadian stardom. I guess their punk/metal/jazz/country fusion was just too weird for mainstream audiences at the time. Just one of those unfair twists of fate.

They were pretty big in western Canada though. Just about every kid I knew had a Smalls t-shirt and owned at least one or two of their albums, and I remember seeing those little stickers all over the place in the early-mid 90s:




There was a great documentary about them that came out a couple years ago. Excellent viewing if you haven't seen it. I went to the first screening here in Vancouver, and probably 90% of the audience were people from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.

Not to be that guy, but I was at the premier of that documentary at the Calgary Film Festival with The Smalls in attendance.

Did you catch them on their reunion tour a few years ago? At one point, Corb Lund said to the audience, 'just like old times, hey guys?' and it was so cool because it totally did feel like old times.

I videoed a bunch of their show. If you want to see it I'll send you my YouTube link.

I did see them on the reunion tour when they played X-Fest in Calgary (2014?) Great show. It was like they'd never left.
