U2 - The Joshua Tree

To me, it's the most complete, consistently good album there is. There's not a dud on it, although Red Hill Mining Town is the weakest by a considerable margin.

I'd go into other honorable mentions and albums I really love, but The Joshua Tree is the clear-cut winner.

Alright, it's been a while since I posted here. Listened to a lot more stuff since then, and updated my list a ton. Here's a chart! Keep in mind that I haven't listened to a lot of stuff still, so feel free to recommend things. Also, the site I used to make the chart is right here if you wanna make your own. :)

The album "This Is Acting" by Sia is basically the only album where I like (and frequently listen to) every single song on the list. And "Teenage Dream" by Katy Perry is just so iconic in so many ways, mostly for nostalgic reasons for me.
