Gimme three totally unfuckwithable BR records;

- zero complaints
- 100% awesome song ratio
- no debate
- ready to defend every song to the death

I mean, y’all can debate it, but there’s no debate for the poster. This BR fan will die on the hill of the 3 perfect albums.

Go:’
I think this is a post we can redo In every language of every country we go to

It's tough because every album has one song that I can do without. I'm going say that these three albums are the ones I would be stoked to see live in their entirety without getting bored in the middle of the set. It's different when you're listening to a record through headphones or in your car. It's easy to mentally take yourself somewhere else to deal with the filler songs on an album. 

1. No Substance
2. ATG
3. No Control

I don't think there's any album by any band that I think is completely perfect. BR-wise, I would probably say TESF, No Control and The Process of Belief are the ones that are closest to being flawless.
Then there are albums like True North that have one song that I usually skip (Popular Consensus).

Well, here's the thing. STF, Empire, & AtG have always been my favourites, but yeah they do have their weak songs. Over the years, I've found the one album that I have found the most listenable as a full album, is Suffer. I think Suffer's one weakness is that it is too consistent - all the songs pretty much sound the same.

No Control is the closest to perfect IMO. I agree Sanity may not be an A+ song but I don't think it is an awful song either. The rest of that album is relentlessly amazing. 

If Markovian Process and News From The Front were used rather than Television and What It Is on STF, I'd call that album near perfect. Still can't believe those songs got voted down.

Honestly anything from HCHBAW to Gray Race are "non skip" records for me. Are there a couple "B" songs on most of those records? Sure. Anything post GR has several B and/or sub-B songs on it, and for me, some skips. 

So that is my long-winded answer: there aren't 3.

Also I noticed a lot of mention of TPoB and TESF. I love those records, but personally I think songs like Destined For Nothing, The Lie, Broken, even Kyoto Now!... and All There Is, To Another Abyss and even Los Angeles Is Burning or the title track on Empire are kinda "meh" songs. Certainly compared to the other, stronger songs on those records. None of those are "this is where the fun is" skip-worthy bad, but they keep those records from perfection IMO.

Generator is the only album on which I do not skip any songs.
