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.
Hole – Pretty on the Inside. 1 star/5.
Dear God, is there a single song here? (Imagine buying The Buzzcocks' Singles Going Steady on the same day, and having to compare the two.) Somehow, their next time at bat, they got 500 million times better.

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:
