Flawless albums?

I usually find that most albums, no matter how good they are, usually have at least one track on them that I can live without. Some of us may even skip a track or two. Radiohead's OK Computer is a great album, in my opinion, but I don't much care for Electioneering. That's just one example.

However, what about those flawless albums? You never skip a track, you always listen to it from beginning to end. I can quite happily listen to Metallica's Ride The Lightning in its entirety. Escape may be one of the weaker songs on there, but it's still a good song and well worth a listen.

Flawless may be the wrong word, but what albums do you always listen to from start to finish. No skipping. :think
