View Full Version : Unfuckwithable five-album streaks

I spent the majority of my day (including while I was taking a biology exam) trying to think of bands who have put out five albums in a row that were indisputable classics; albums that weren't just great within their own canon but just in general, and were of comparable quality to each other.

I only came up with the runs by Iron Maiden from 1982-1988 and Genesis from 1970-1974. I couldn't quite do it with Rush because I don't think 2112 or Signals stand up to the four discs they bookend. Really no one else even came close in my mind.

Now let the flaming begin because I don't think there's a five-album streak from Sabbath that deserves this distinction. ;)

Some people are definitely going to disagree with me here, but I think all of the big four are valid here. Their first five are very good in my opinion, and based on the merits you based, I am not comparing them to each other, but overall. I can't think of much others right now, I'll think of em during class D

I don't consider Hell Awaits to be a classic.

Not sure where you're seeing the Megadeth streak, first five albums? That would fly if I like Peace Sells nearly as much as the others.

Pink Floyd absolutely not. The classic four are bookended by Obscured By Clouds and the Final Cut.

b) Peace Sells is a classic, "I Ain't Superstitious" or not

c) Meddle, Dark Side, WYWH, Animals, The Wall. 5.

Sabbath for sure. Their 1st 5 albums are better than ANY bands first 5 albums to me. The weakest is Vol 4 and is still has some incredible music and riffs. Listen to Under the Sun and Cornucopia again and you'll find pure brilliance. I would rate Sabbath's 1st 5 albums like this:

1) Master of Reality
2) Sabotage
3) Paranoid
4) Black Sabbath
5) Vol 4

The Thrill of it All and Megalomania off Sabotage are the 2 best Sabbath songs most people don't know about or didn't let sink in properly. Musical Genius.

Queensryche could be considered if you count the 1st EP as their 1st album.

I think Priest actually pretty much have it:

Sad Wings, Sin after Sin, Stained Class, HBFL, British Steel

Yeah, the last two aren't quite on the same scale as the first three, but I'd still give it the "unfuckwithable" rating. Especially since immediately after British Steel came one of the most fuckwithable albums they've ever put out.

At first I was sad that King Crimson never has a point where they put out 5 stellar albums in a row (waaaay too many lineup changes), but then I thought about it. Even though there was a huge break in time, the five albums they put out from 1973-1982 are all amazing (some people will likely say no to Beat and Starless, but I love those two, and Larks/Red/Discipline are pretty much all undeniable prog classics). So them too.

I can't really think of more. I noticed a lot of bands go on incredible streaks that last for about 3 albums. 5 is tough. :hmm:

And the difficulty of putting out five killer albums in a row makes Maiden and Genesis all the more impressive to me, because the first two Maiden albums are almost on par with the next five, and the first two Phil Collins Genesis albums are almost on par with the five that preceded them.

Edit: and Brad, COTM definitely counts as part of the Mastodon streak.

The only Mastodon album I would consider to be truly "Unfuckwithable" is Leviathan.
Sin After Sin is kinda fuckwithable, as is British Steel.



I disagree so hard with the first statement. I consider SAS to be Priest's 2nd finest album. :allan: British Steel... maybe... but I still give it a lot of credit for being my (and probably about 75% of all Priest fans) intro to the band.the first two Phil Collins Genesis albums are almost on par with the five that preceded them.

aaaaand A Trick of the Tail is actually better than most of Genesis' PG albums. *runs and hides*

I think Leviathan and Blood Mountain are similarly awesome, but Crack the Skye and Remission, for different reasons, sit a little bit beneath them. Still great, just not quite as great.

British Steel is definitely a masterpiece, I don't have a problem with anyone saying so.

And I'd put A Trick of the Tail right under the Trespass/Nursery Cryme/Foxtrot/Selling England/Lamb Lies Down block but I can't put it above any of them...I....I just can't. And don't forget that "Afterglow" is one of the best Genesis songs and it's on the NEXT album. So yeah, very good streak.

Well COTM is the uneasy one, Iv heard people who are devout Mastodon fans say they hate it, and others say they love it. Either way the next 'official' Mastodon album will solisify their streak. And Maiden and Genesis definitely, I don't even listen to genesis much and know they had a golden streak in their career. And Maiden, well, IMO theyve yet to release any fully dodgey material. A bad Maiden album is still a very good album haha

I don't know man, Hell Awaits is pretty classic to me, I love that album. And Peace Sells is most definitely a classic, besides the title track it's got killer tracks that most definitely constitute "notfuckablewith".

Maiden33
10-01-2009, 02:10 PM
The obvious one is Maiden. Even though I think NOTB is really overrated, the streak still stands.

The big one I want to nominate is Evergrey's first five albums. The Dark Discovery, Solitude Dominance Tragedy, In Search of Truth, Recreation Day, and The Inner Circle. The first album suffers from a bit of "first album production syndrome", but the material is top notch. The other 4 are all amazing in my opinion.

Another one I personally want to enter is Edguy from '98 - '05. Vain Glory Opera, Theater of Salvation, Savage Poetry, Mandrake, and Hellfire Club. The final two are by far the best, but I think all 5 are fantastic albums.

A band like Blind Guardian poses an odd issue here. While they have released 5 consecutive GREAT albums, they were put out over a 12-year period, averaging 3-4 years between albums. it makes it hard to classify as an era of the band. In the same line of thinking, Savatage released 5 or 6 albums in a row I love, but the lineups changed so dramatically that, again, its impossible the call one era of the band.
Queensryche would count if you classified the EP as an album. Empire's still a bit of a step down from the rest, but I'd be comfortable with the classification.

And then you have your bands who have simply managed to have consistently very good careers. There's bands out there that don't quite have an amazing streak, but they've just never released a bad album.

Maiden33
10-01-2009, 02:12 PM

Four, if you ask me. I think Sacred Heart is a good bit better than most people write it off as, and I think Dream Evil flat-out rules and easily stands with the first 2 albums.

ravenheart
10-01-2009, 02:17 PM
Hell no on Dio. He barely has two.

Dio almost makes it, but there's normally one album somewhere in there that breaks the run. I'd take Lock Up The Wolves, Strange Highways, Magica and Killing The Dragon in an instant, and I know I'm in the minority with most/all of those, but although I do like Angry Machines, it's hardly what you'd call outstanding.

Sacred Heart does the same job of spoiling the Holy Diver through to Lock Up The Wolves run.

ravenheart
10-01-2009, 02:23 PM
Still Life through Ghost Reveries, I assume? Just maybe.

To be perfectly honest, any album through any album. I don't think they've made a bad one. But if I had to pick one run above the others, it'd be My Arms, Your Hearse through Damnation, purely because I've yet to buy either Ghost Reveries or Watershed.

I'll be seeing them a week on Saturday on the Progressive Nation tour with Dream Theater. Haven't seen them since the London Roundhouse gig (the one the Roundhouse Tapes album/DVD was recorded at), so looking forward to it.

Yeah I was thinking the Black album wud be the question mark. Depends on how you look at it really. As a thrash album its not very good at all, but its an awesome heavy metal album. I would include it too, as its the weakest of first five certainly, but it is a very well done album, both musically and in terms of production.

Well, if you're going to be THAT picky, I'm not sure there's really anything to discuss here. To be frank, if you're going to be that picky, Maiden don't even qualify. I agree whole-heartedly about their '82-'89 output, but I wouldn't consider all of those albums to be the best in the genre or of all-time. Two, maybe 3, tops. I don't think any band has existed that has produced more than just a couple of actual "Masterpieces". I like the general concept of discussion here, but I think if you're going to be as picky as you mentioned, there's just nothing worth discussing, because no one actually fits, even Maiden.

Now, onto something I forgot earlier, and I have a feeling one JRA will be with me on this. I gotta nominate Gamma Ray. Starting with Land of the Free and running through Majestic, or even possibly the last album, they've been producing consistently great albums for a long time now.

It's funny that I forgot Sabbath Bloody Sabbath but I just love Sabotage that much. I stand corrected. Sabbath has the best 1st 6 albums of any band ever. :-)

Also I'd have to agree with Metallica and Queensryche. I'm not the biggest fan of the Black album or Mindcrime (even though I'm sure some people think they're their best albums) but the others are all masterpieces.

I'd almost have to agree on Overkill if it wasn't for Under The Influence.

I'm just saying that there's a shit ton of bands who have put out five good albums in a row. That's not that special. Maiden and Genesis put out five amazing albums in a row, which is. And obviously people are going to have their opinions about other bands that did this and I respect that but naming dozens of bands is cheapening the value of what makes a great album.

Well thats because the topic is very subjective, I mean, everyones gonna have a different definition of an amazing album, hence the variety bands that have been named thus far. It is still adhering to the main point though, everyone is only naming bands who have managed five albums of a decent level of excellence, its not yet a roll call of bands who released five albums that kept them on the radar.

Half of 'See You On The Other Side' is decent. The rest mostly blows. 'Take A Look In The Mirror' is solid, but perhaps a little forgettable.

'Untouchables' pretty much destroys everything else though. I know it's cool not to like it, but popular opinion isn't always right ;)

I think a decent argument could be made for Lamb of God and Hatebreed. New Hatebreed might be album of the year for me. That would be skipping the cover album For the Lions of course.

I's actually make the argument against Death. Scream Bloody Gore is one of my all-time favorites but Leprosy is such a huge drop off that I couldn't ever honestly call that album a masterpiece.

I wouldn't say wrong, as I hate discussing opinions usings such terms. They're usually merely ignorant, such as someone saying 'all metal is a bunch of lads dressed in black shouting their heads off' its ignorant, yes, as most metal isn't like this, but if he heard the wrong slipknot song on Mtv, or by some pure coincidence managed the catch the once-in-a-lifetime showing of a proper black metal song on scuzz or kerrang or whatever, then I wouldn't blame him for thinking such a thing. I would gravely disagree with him though.

Agreed, if they re-did that album with better production values I think it'd be much more accessible to people, and the stronger songs on that album would really shine. Personally, I love it since theres a blastbeat in like the second song ;)

Ignorant, as the opinion is rooted in ignorance.

People like to call their ignorance "opinions" sometimes. However, you can't actually have a valid opinion about a fact. When people say they have an opinion about something like that, what they mean is "choosing to be ignorant." A real opinion cannot be right or wrong. :cool:

I don't consider Hell Awaits to be a classic.

Not sure where you're seeing the Megadeth streak, first five albums? That would fly if I like Peace Sells nearly as much as the others.

Pink Floyd absolutely not. The classic four are bookended by Obscured By Clouds and the Final Cut.

Peace Sells is Megadeth's only great album.

& The Final Cut is excellent.

Trying to think of more, KISS always puts at least 1 album I can't honestly say is unfuckwithable like the other 4.

The one that comes close is the self titled/Hotter Than Hell/Dressed To Kill/Destroyer/Rock And Roll Over. But Destroyer is fuckable with, Beth and Great Expectations just don't work for me, Dressed To Kill has Anything For My Baby which I fucking hate also.


I'll say yes to the first 5 Sabbath records also....the first five (6 maybe) Van Halen records I feel safe in saying are unfuckwithable.

Did mean compared to the other members they've carried on with since Phil's death, rather than compared to Phil himself. John Sykes, primarily.

That said, I still don't rate most of Thin Lizzy's catalogue. The riffs are ordinary, the song structures are basic rock 'n' roll and the lyrics are average. So many of the songs sound the same for them to really be considered a great band anyway.

Motorhead syndrome, for me. A handful of particularly successful songs has clouded the collective judgement and now they'll always be one of those perceived "great" bands, even though they never, ever expanded beyond that one successful formula. Same is true of KISS, if you took them on musical value alone, AC/DC, and several others. Making the same music over and over, even if you do it well, isn't good enough to be one of the "greats" for me.

Alright. I still love Blue Murder, so I am still somewhat upset, but not insulted. :D

Well - Thin lizzy was a "rock n' roll" band, so I don't think you can fault them for having "rock n' roll" structures. And again - they wrote a lot of those riffs in 1975, and were the first to do so - so I don't think you can detract too many points for that. I just think they were the epitome of the working man's melodic hard rock band - great, honest, rock music, that was oddly poetic even though it seemed like it wasn't trying to be. Not to mention the absolute revolution for two-guitar music they started.

Sorry, DethMaiden - if I'd known resurrecting your thread would have almost ruined it, I would have just held off posting. :snivel:

Now, on to the Clutch streak. I want them to qualify for this so badly, but I'm sorry...they don't (at least, not yet). Pure Rock Fury was Pure Rock Garbage. Maybe the next album will be awesome, and they'll qualify at that point. Even still, I think you'll find a few hardcore Clutch fanatics on here who would actually argue that maybe the last two albums don't qualify for this thread. Just sayin'. :(

For me, Clutch's best albums are pretty well spaced out through their career. If Clutch, Elephant Riders, Blast Tyrant, and Beale Street were released consecutively, that would be an INSANE streak. But they weren't.

And everyone else is being waaaaay too lenient here. :lol: I meant five consecutive GODDAMN FUCKING CLASSICS, and everyone else is chiming in with "five straight good albums." Well, shit, if you can't do that, you're not even a good band! :D

Very good call on High on Fire I completely agree all those albums are also classics in my book! No problem, I agree though I wouldn't call Pure Rock Fury garbage but it's not a classic. I also really hope their next one is a classic! I know what you mean some people just can't get past the fact Clutch are not in their twenties any longer emulating Bad Brains and other DC hardcore with some Sabbath inspired riffs and a tight rhythm section . They have expanded their musical talents so far it's rather mind blowing. Seriously, to see the same guy who once said "Come on mother fucker lets throw down!" is now doing some blues numbers and singing in Spanish is crazy! :confused: One rather interesting thing is Strange Cousins awarded Clutch with their highest Billboard mark in history (even though past albums were also on it) selling 172,000 copies in the first week .

I can respect that and agree those are excellent but TSL and Robot Hive are not far behind. Strange Cousins is really a grower similar to Pure Rock Fury and for some people Beale Street.

Yes, I'm also seeing some major leniency exhibited in some of these lists (mine included because I'm such a huge fan of Clutch).

I definitely agree with Maiden, don't know enough about all the Genesis albums to give an opinion.

I can see many four album streaks but five are very rare.

This. Seriously. I kinda like the EPs, really like TSL, and of course worship the self-titled (although they were mostly out of this phase by then), but Jesus...these people are living in the fucking past, and yet they insist on going to Clutch shows and walking out disappointed if they don't hear Shogun and El Jefe. :tp:

This happens at shows for every band - not just Clutch. Virtually any band that's ever had a style change or a controversial album. I mean, I'm not saying you have to like everything a band does, but once it becomes clear that they've changed and aren't going back - if you don't like the new stuff (or past a certain point - the MAJORITY of the stuff) - you're a moron to keep spending the money to go see them only to complain that they don't play songs they were NEVER going to play in the first place.

Very true S/T had Animal Farm which was pretty much the last link to their older stuff. Seriously, people going to see Clutch hoping for TSL and Pitchfork songs is retarded. The last five times I have seen them I have heard Shogun and El Jefe once. All time I have heard Shogun and El Jefe twice 12 oz Epilogue, Rats, Walking in the Great Shining Path of Monster Trucks, Earthworm, and Binge and Purge once.

I'm probably the only person on these forums who's a huge fan of this band, so I doubt anyone will back me up here, but I'm gonna do it anyway.

SCAR SYMMETRY is UNFUCKWITHABLE!!!
-Symmetric in Design
-Pitch Black Progress
-Holographic Universe
-Dark Matter Dimensions
-The Unseen Empire

Most SS fans wouldn't even back me up on this, because they don't like the new vocalists. It's true that Lars and Roberth together are no match for Christian by his lonesome, but let's be fair here... the guy is fucking IMPOSSIBLE to replace. I've been a fan of Roberth's work for years (Edge of Sanity, Pan.Thy.Monium, Facebreaker) and Lars is pretty good so I don't have a problem with the new vocalists. And I'll admit that it took quite a while for the last album to grow on me, but when it finally sunk in I fell in love with it.

Ok, I'm done justifying myself. SCAR SYMMETRY FTW :horns: If anyone does back me up, I'm sorry I doubted you.

Lost Paradise and Gothic are certainly oddball installments in their catalogue when compared to later works. But I, personally, think that Gothic is where they laid the initial groundwork for great albums like Icon and Draconian Times. It's certainly the album where Gregor Mackintosh found that epic clean guitar tone (the one with the ultra-thick reverb) that is so plentiful in the Draconian Times album.

They've had too many changes in artistic direction and, later in their career, lineup changes (including the death of one their founding members). I was honestly surprised that I enjoyed their set at Scion Rock Fest in Columbus a couple of years ago as much as I did, but luckily for me, they played mostly stuff from the albums I like best.

If that be the case, then High on Fucking Fire would be making the list in about a month. :rocker:



Yes.

Also most of the usual suspects must have been mentioned on here. I'll be: waiting on Agalloch's next album to post here :allan:

Blind Guardian for sure. You could just about pick any five of their albums and you'd have a streak of killer records, although I do consider 'A Twist in the Myth' to be a slight misstep; it's still good though. Anyway, for the sake of argument, I'll go with:

Tales from the Twilight World
Somewhere Far Beyond
Imaginations from the Other Side
Nightfall in Middle-Earth
A Night at the Opera

I think Deceased are worth a mention as well:

The Blueprints for Madness
Fearless Undead Machines
Supernatural Addiction
As the Weird Travel On
Surreal Overdose

I expect that 'Ghostly White' will be another fantastic album.

Manilla Road:

Crystal Logic
Open the Gates
The Deluge
Mystification
Out of the Abyss

And, of course, Iron Maiden.

This is a real cool idea, I think I'll try.

Now, this is what I think and I'm in no way stating that the albums I list are ones that everyone HAS to like, it's just my personnel opinion.

Bon Jovi (BIG SURPRISE!):
Bon Jovi
7800 Degrees Fahrenheit
Slippery When Wet
New Jersey
Keep The Faith
(and These Days, love all six of those records to death)

Van Halen:
Van Halen
Van Halen II
Women And Children First
Fair Warning
Diver Down
(they actually had a seven streak IMO, 1984 and 5150 are both awesome)

Blind Guardian:
Follow The Blind
Tales From The Twilight World
Somewhere Far Beyond
Imaginations From The Other Side
Nightfall In Middle-Earth

Queen:
Queen
Queen II
Shear Heart Attack
A Night At The Opera
A Day At The Races

Judas Priest:
Sad Wings Of Destiny
Sin After Sin
Stained Class
Hell Bent For Leather
British Steel
(wasn't a big fan of Point Of Entry, if it wasn't for that they would also have a seven streak)

W.A.S.P.:
W.A.S.P.
The Last Command
Inside The Electric Circus
The Headless Children
The Crimson Idol

Nightwish:
Oceanborn
Wishmaster
Century Child
Once
Dark Passion Play
(they also have a six streak)

Iron Maiden, but that goes without saying.

1984 > Diver Down

Just fucking with you, although Diver Down is inconsistent. Neither is great. These songs from DD are hard to beat, probably better than most of 1984.

Little Guitars
Secrets
Hang Em' High

I would actually bump it to 7800 - These Days. The self-titled really isn't all that good, but agree those other five are gold.

I really love the self-titled, probably just because of how 80's obsessed I am though. The only songs I didn't like on those other five were (I Don't Wanna Fall) To The Fire and It's Hard (Letting You Go), other than that they were all perfect in my eyes.

I'm shocked you would think that's a controversial/trolling opinion. I figured that was fact.

Queen:

Mine would honestly be the run from 'The Works' through to 'Made In Heaven'.

That's not to say 'Made In Heaven' is anywhere near one of their best albums, but it is a good album, and I don't really like most of 'A Night At The Opera'.

Or you could check with Ultraboris to see what he thinks.

Very very true, I especially loved A Kind Of Magic and The Miracle.

a) That would work if Van Halen was on the archives, dumbass. b) Because I agree with everything he says.
