A thread about the best 3 albums in a row from a band (personal taste - not a competiton)

For me

Biffy Clyro - Blackened Sky, Vertigo of Bliss, Infinity Land

Devo - Are We Not Men We Are Devo, Duty Now For the Future, Freedom of Choice

Smashing Pumpkins - Gish, Siamese Dream, Mellom Collie and the Infinite Sadness

Idlewild - Hope is Important, 100 Broken Windows, The Remote Part

Pearl Jam - Ten, Vs, Vitalogy

Pixies - Doolittle, Bossanova, Trompe Le Monde

Elbow - Cast of Thousands, Leaders of the Free World, The Seldom Seen Kid

Radiohead - Choose any 3 albums in a row

I'm sure there are many others - personal choice though!!

The Strokes.

Radiohead - Ok Computer, Kid A, and then one either side, would probably take The Bends.

Seconded.

Radiohead - The Bends, Ok Computer & Kid A is pretty hard to top too.

Also The Church - Heyday, Starfish & Gold Afternoon Fix or Starfish, Gold Afternoon Fix & Priest = Aura

With a name like that.. a comment like that is hardly unexpected ;) But imo they aren't overall great albums. Some good songs but I'm not a fan of atleast half on each.
haha yeah i suppose my colours are bit too easy to see, ah you sound like my brother, he likes 4-5 songs each radiohead album but hasnt grasped the feel of the albums in thier entirity...(yet, everyone comes around;))

Rubber Soul / Revolver / Sgt Pepper - The Beatles
Agree with these 3 for The Beatles.

Metallica - Master of Puppets/ ...And Justice For All/ Metallica
or Ride The Lightning/ Master Of Puppets/ ...And Justice For All
Agree with the RTL/MOP/Justice but I'd prefer Kill 'Em All over the Black Album in the other trio (but only just).


Others personal favourites that haven't been mentioned yet:

A Tribe Called Quest - Peoples Instinctive Travels..., Low End Theory, Midnight Marauders.
Kraftwerk - Trans-Europe Express, The Man-Machine, Computer World.

OK Computer isn't a great album? You obviously haven't listened to it enough, it's as close to musical genius as I have come across. Only Tool's Aenima can rival it imo. Both those albums are mindblowing and are on another level to anything else I've heard.

The Bends and Kid A are both great albums too but suffer in comparison to OK Computer.

For me it's the holy trinity of punk rock:

Bad Religion
- Suffer (1988), No Control (1989), Against The Grain (1990)

This is pretty awesome too:

Propagandhi - Today's Empires, Tomorrows Ashes (2001), Potemkin City Limits (2005), Supporting Caste (2009)
