So the thought of perfection came up this past week, not sure where or why, but I took a note that a good idea for a Hidden Treasures post would be to think about perfect albums. You know, those albums with no filler, every track is special, every track is awesome! If you threw a dart at the track listing theres no chance of it landing on a bad song... you get the idea.... I'm not talking about the biggest blockbusters or the most popular albums at one time or another, but the ones you may may have missed out on. So I wanted to share perfect album hidden treasures this week.
So does the perfect album exist? What is it? And what other albums do you consider "perfect" that we need to know about!

Michael Schenker Group
1 - Comin' Right Down On Top Of Me
April Wine is a perfect example of a band that critics loved to loathe in the 1970s and 1980s -- you could fill an encyclopedia with all the negative reviews that First Glance received in 1978. Critics detested commercial hard rock/arena rock items like "Hot on the Wheels of Love," "Roller" and "Get Ready for Love" with a passion, but fans of the Canadian band paid no attention and bought the album anyway. First Glance wasn't meant to be challenging or cutting-edge; April Wine's mission was to pull the listener in with infectious grooves and hooks and enable him/her to escape -- and this album definitely accomplishes those things. One of April Wine's finest releases, First Glance is easily recommended to hard rock enthusiasts.
might as well open it up!!
Uh, I can't follow directions.
Never heard the entire Pull album
As for these tracks, they are all pretty decent. I was really intrigued with the MSG song. That was quite cool. I may just have to check that album out one of these days. I don't own any of these five, therefore I cannot speak to their level of perfection, but the order in which I would wanna check them out, based on listening to this playlist:
