  • Perfect Albums

    These are albums that I consider perfect. When I say perfect, I mean that I enjoy every single song completely and there are no "skippable" or lesser tracks on it. There are albums that I like much more than these but those albums happen to have at least one track that diminishes it slightly from being perfect.
