If you count call of the mastodon then Mastodon have five, either way it will take a disaster for their next album to not be a classic too..

Yeah, I was thinking about this too, but I don't think Call of the Mastodon is a classic or even close really.

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.

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.
Sin After Sin is kinda fuckwithable, as is British Steel.

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.

I disagree so hard with the first statement. I consider SAS to be Priest's 2nd finest album. 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.

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".

Only other bands I can think of are Dio. Yes, yes?

Hell no on Dio. He barely has two.
