Tusk. Definitely among my favorites, if not my true favorite.

no love for Lou Reed's Live: Take No Prisoners?
Also, Keith Jarrett's The Köln Concert is fantastic.

Exile is about 66 minutes. Can we call any CD over that length a double album? Now I think about (and indeed now I've checked) was Bigger Bang a double album?

Time out of Mind and Tempest were pretty damn good for recent albums.

This is a Stones forum - you must vote Exile. Anyone who voted for the White Album should be locked in a room with Honey Pie and Goodnight on an endless tape loop.

No...PIGGIES!

Revolution #9 anyone?

This could have been a 4 star album, well, let's say 3.5 star album, if they'd only cut away the crap! Hey Bungalow Bill!

Exile is Exile: as good as it gets.

I'll also second Professor Rockman's choice of The Basement Tapes. A masterpiece and a legend--and still underappreciated.

For my own part, I find the "white album" a mess. Fascinating and scary and sometimes exciting, but a mess.

Has anyone mentioned Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs?

Love the mention of Bitches Brew. And I'll throw in Live/Dead. An epic suite that stands as its own statement, far beyond a simple concert album. It's sort of an interesting case in that the original presentation was limited by the LPs. "Dark Star" slips into "St. Stephen" at the end of side 1, then when the album is flipped, one hears the same transition before the "St. Stephen" -> "The Eleven" side 2. At the end of that is the beginning of "(Turn On Your) Love Light." That transition is repeated at the opening of side 3, and so on. The point was that they were trying to make the idea of one song cycle clear to the listener. The cassette had a bit of this at the end of its side 1. When the CD appeared in the 80's, it finally made it possible to present the record in one seamless stretch. The concept was finally realized almost two decades after the fact.

I think it's an interesting contrast to the many LPs--Exile being perhaps the best example--where the loss of the LP sides screwed up the organization and pacing of the album.

Got to be Exile.................although,,,,, when it first came out and for a good few years after, Love You Live was almost glued to the turntable............
And I love and play Humble Pie's 'Rockin' the Fillmore' as much now as when I first heard it in 1973.

Exile. Only thing even close is London Calling

Yes, Exile & London Calling! Also, White Album & Quadrophenia. With U2's Rattle & Hum very close as well. I'd also consider Use Your Illusions except there are a few tracks on each disc that I consider filler.

That pretty much covers it. I would add Quadrophenia (but not Tommy).

My 'All things must pass' has always been a triple-album good enough for a single-album...lots of fillers there....Best Beatle-solo-album is Lennons 'Plastic ono band' from -70 begins with 'Mother'....great album...

With Rattle and Hum, U2 went from quirky/interesting to trying to play straight and failing. It's a poor album and the film is not very good.

Luckily they made up for it with Achtung Baby.

Rattle and Hum is packed with great songs.
Love rescue me, all i want is you, angel of harlem, desire,...
I never understood the poor reviews.

I think the live material is shite...but the studio cuts Angel and Desire are great.

I really should qualify my comments by saying I haven't listened to that album in 25 years (that's close right?)

There are plenty of great double albums, but it's Exile I keep going back to. Keth called it the Bible and that's pretty much what it is for me. It never gets old.

Although we should say the bible is quite old. And not only quite old, it is a very tough read.
