This has turned into a weekly long discussion over at my office, so let's see what you all say. 

Massive Attack: Blue Lines, Protection, Mezzanine. 

The Jam: All Mod Cons, Setting Sons, Sound Affects. 

Pixies: Surfer Rosa, Doolittle, Bossanova. 

 

Good choices, @Super Hans

I think these are great 3-album streaks: 

David Bowie: Low, "Heroes", Lodger

Wire: Pink Flag, Chairs Missing, 154

The Beatles: Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt Pepper

Can: Tago Mago, Ege Bamyasi, Future Days

Good stuff! 

I would replace Lodger for Station to Station, but that's 4 great albums for sure!

Yeah, Station to Station/Low/"Heroes" is also a phenomenal run! Bowie's creative streak in the 70s is mind-blowing

This is an excellent thread, @Super Hans!

Off the top of my head...

You can work a couple of configurations with the four Velvets albums (VU&N >> WLWH >> VU or WLWH >> VU >> Loaded)

On The Beach >> Tonight’s The Night >> Zuma (not sure whether we should include Homegrown in here?)

Curtis >> Roots >> Superfly

I suspect there’s several Cave runs but these three are pretty formidable:

Push The Sky Away >> Skeleton Tree >> Ghosteen

First three Roxy albums / any cut of the first four Eno solo albums

Any cut from the Stones late ‘60s to mid-‘70s run, but I’d choose BB >> LIB >> SF

Byrds! 5thD >> YTY > NBB

Suspect there’s plenty more...

For me it’s either The Stones: Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, Exile On Main Street

Springsteen: The Wild, The Innocent & E Street Shuffle, Born To Run, Darkness

Van Morrison: Astral Weeks, Moondance, His Band & Street Choir (ok the last one is a bit week)

Miles Davis: ln A Silent Way: Bitches Brew: Tribute to Jack Johnson
