I need to listen to the whole album - my #1 is either Alabama Song or Break On Through, but I know that won't cut it.

This, and Appetite for Destruction (and Metallica's black album), are prime examples to me of a feast or famine rock album. I only really care about 5 songs here. But I figure that averages out to a Very Good album.

Another example of a quasiperfect album.
Ray Manzarek is for me the key of this greatness.

Great:
11 | The End
01 | Break On Through (To the Other Side)
06 | Light My Fire
02 | Soul Kitchen

Very good:
09 | End of the Night
07 | Back Door Man
03 | The Crystal Ship
05 | Alabama Song (Whisky Bar)
04 | Twentieth Century Fox
10 | Take It as It Comes

Good:
08 | I Looked at You

Mediocre:

Not for me:
