    Great thread and great picks! Two nominations I haven't seen mentioned yet:

    Kansas: Song for America/Masque/Leftoverture
    Queen: Sheer Heart Attack/NatO/DatR

    I think my vote for best among those mentioned so far would have to be Genesis: NC/F/SEbtP, though. A stunning achievement.

    Good call. I was thinking I might be the only Wapassou freak around.

    Katy Lied / The Royal Scam / Aja

    Though truth be told it was a seven-album streak of unbroken brilliance.

    And I choose to stretch the "unbroken" adjective and include Two Against Nature, but I can't argue with your list of three.

    On quality grounds I agree, I just felt the long chronological gap that separates the last two albums from the first seven makes them separate somehow.

    Revolver
    Sgt Peppers
    The White Album

    Edit: I just noticed the OP's reference to "brilliance in prog" so hoping these get a pass as "proto-prog"

    The Stones:
    Beggar's Banquet
    Let It Bleed
    Sticky Fingers

    Although they're bookended by Satanic Majesty's and Exile. Tough to say with those boys.
    When in doubt....
