Didn't see anyone mention it, so I will throw this out.

Massive Attack - Protection

One of the best albums of all time has a very distinct, different, and awesome 1-2 punch.

1.  Protection (8 minutes of awesome with added Tracey Thorn goodness)
2.  Karmacoma (With Tricky, who ended up making an even better version for his album)

Heck, just add "Three" to that list too for a TKO via punches.

Each song so very different from the next, and each amazing in their own right.

Gulper Eel: "The Musical Box" / "For Absent Friends" - Genesis, Nursery Cryme
"The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" / "Fly on a Windshield" - The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway
"Behind the Lines" / "Duchess" - Duke

I love the Gabriel/Hackett era Genesis, too. Ok, they weren't on Duke (I do think Heathaze is beautiful though).

On a side note- Steve Hackett has just put out an amazing new album- Genesis Revisited 2, He reimagines many of their earlier songs using today's new musical technologies and the results are stunning. Steve has never sounded better and he has assembled an astounding group of musicians and it is just a treasure. Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt singing Lovers Leap from Suppers Ready is sublime, Simon Collins (Phil's son) does some amazing vocal work, and Steven Wilson from Porcupine Tree  puts a new spin on Can Utility and the Coastliners.

It's a fantastic album , and well over 2 hours of music. If you love the older music of Genesis (before they turned into the three man soul band pop nightmare) I can't recommend it enough.

My main musical passion, Steven Wilson, has a new album coming out in a couple of weeks. If you love Elbow, PLEASE check out his new song- The Raven That Refused to Sing. The video is just remarkably beautiful and touching and you obviously have the intelligence and attention span to withstand a 7 minute+ song ( A rare thing these days, sadly to say).

It was an "Honorable Mention" but that is a great choice.

Queen --> News of the World --> "We Will Rock You" flows into "We Are the Champions"
