    Oooof, I don't think you can answer this well without veering into highly subjective territory!

    For me Radiohead come close to fitting that bill. Love almost every song on every album. But even still I didn't LOVE A Moon Shaped Pool, so there you go (maybe it's a grower...?). The National are another band that ticks that box for me. Love pretty much everything they do.

    If you want to go slightly more scientific Elvis Presley has had the most number ones in the UK (21), followed by The Beatles (17). If you wanted to go even more scientific you could apply charting singles as a ratio to albums produced per artist, but I won't go that far

    In terms of a 'group' per se - Beatles. After that it would be a motown act for me, four tops or isley brothers.
    Solo Artists -Bowie, no one else comes close.

    I thought about Bowie, but then I disqualified him as he has such a huge discography. I just assumed he'd have to have a few dud albums in there (I'm far from having listened to all of them). Saying that, I still think he's amazing. Him and Prince in the same year was tough.

    this will be a very subjective topic.

    Metallica have done some cracking albums as has Bowie.

    However beatles (IMHO) are over rated as are U2.

    Meatloaf's Bat Out Of Hell does not have a bad track on it, but they weren't written by him.

    Very subjective topic but they were very young and produced some amazing albumns at that age.

    Big fan of Pink Floyd but some of their early stuff was carp.

    Carole King

    Big fan of early Elton John stuff Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Madman Across the Water, but later stuff let him down IMHO.

    As i said, it is subjective. There are some people who would say that Justin Beiber has never released a bad track (they are of course absolutely and entirely misguided and probably need a lobotomy)

    PS. I also do enjoy a bit of Elton when the mood takes me.

    In my opinion ;
    Linkin Park
    David Bowie
    Pink
    The Carpenters

    Seriously I can listen to every song with the above. Though with Linkin Park I discount the album they did with Jay-Z.

    Well I could listen to every track of every album from Iron Maiden up until Bruce Dickinson left. After he returned, I tend to skip a few tracks.

    Same with Metallica after the black album.

    Metallica. Specifically the earlier stuff. My first exposure to Metallica was the Black Album and i thought it was a greatest hits album

    Led Zeppelin.

    The Doors. All the stuff they released when Jim was alive anyway.

    The Beatles. Try Sgt Pepper.

    The greatest band the world has seen or ever will see! and that's not subjective, it's fact!
