best 5 consecutive albums?

Recommended Posts

Can you think of any other artist or band who has put out 5 studio albums back to back more (or as) thoroughly enjoyable than/as Wilco's Being There, Summerteeth, Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, A Ghost Is Born and Sky Blue Sky?

i assume beatles fans, dead fans & dylan fans can probably come up with multiple 5's. i'm just not one of em.





That one's got me thinking, but at the same time, there is a handful and a half of tunes that while pleasing, I could survive without.


I can't say the same for the 5 wilco albums I listed.

if you count the albums that were collections of singles (which I do)



Hatful of Hollow (UK)

Meat Is Murder

The Queen Is Dead

Louder Than Bombs (US) / The World Won't Listen (UK)


---and some would argue that you could take off the s/t album and tack Strangeways on the end and that would be a better list of five.
