    See in my book to be a good album all the songs on the album have to be top notch, if there's even one song on an album I don't like it ruins it for me. With that in mind my top albums are:

    Mutter by Rammstein
    The Fat of the Land by Prodigy
    One by One by the Foo Fighters

    What are yours?

    One By One is probably my least favorite Foo Fighters album. Their first three efforts are much better, in my opinion.

    Mine would be:

    Nirvana - In Utero
    Guster - Keep it Together
    Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape
    Foo Fighters - Foo Fighters
    Meat Puppets - Meat Puppets II
    Meat Puppets - Huevos
    Alkaline Trio - Crimson
    Neil Young - Harvest
    Neil Young - Mirror Ball
    Yes - The Ladder

    All I know is, the most indespsible song on Zoot Allures is, "Disco Boy." I'd prefer both Over-Nite Sensation and Apostrophe ('😉 to Zoot Allures, if we're talking albums having the highest majority of great songs. My personal favorite Zappa album would probably be Sheik Yerbouti. It's difficult, though, with Zappa, because he's so avant-garde, to judge which album of his is superior to the others. Some of his work is straight forward rock, having a natural appeal, while the rest is entirely experimental or offensive, or both. If a person is capable of appreciating such a wide variety, then one of his albums may stand out from the rest. But honestly, the best Zappa album, since we're talking albums having nothing but great songs wall to wall, would have to be Strictly Commercial, which is a 'best of' type compilation released after he died.
