    Frank's Wild Years really is perfect.

    I think Elliott Smith's "XO" is beyond perfect.

    Showing my age here:

    Close To The Edge - Yes
    The Nightfly - Donald Fagin
    Meddle - Pink Floyd
    Under Rug Swept - Alanis Morissette

    And tomorrow I'll think all these don't deserve the title of Perfect Album so I'll give you another list (but I'll keep Rumours)
