The only thing that comes close is KISS-Love Gun, but that's because I am nuts

Nothing is going to beat those six Yes albums

Unless we're talking 10 on 10

RUSH
Fly By Night
Caress Of Steel
2112
A Farewell To Kings
Hemispheres
Permanent Waves
Moving Pictures
Signals
Grace Under Pressue

vs

The Yes Album
Fragile
Close To The Edge
Tales from Topographic Oceans

Tormato
Drama

Big Generator

This is why Rush will always be my favorite band of all time. You have to take a small segment of their albums or individual albums to beat them. But as a career or their entire classic era, nobody comes close.

That era for bands was so incredible because it was non stop .. An album ( or sometimes two ) per year and constant touring and being on the road ..

The way musicians dedicated themselves to the lifestyle and bringing new stuff to the fans was pretty amazing ..

I bet a lot of musicians look back at that type of schedule now and think "How the hell did I do that ?"

It's all opinion, but how on a Rush message board, could anyone think that ANY Black Sabbath would be better than almost any Rush, especially than line-up, is beyond me, and I like a lot of Sabbath.

Even I liked the first few BS albums but  I didn't and still don't like Ozzie's voice.  

Rush wins this one for me.

Another contender? Iron Maiden's "Killers" through "Seventh Son."

I thought honestly about Iron Maiden and it just doesn't work for me. Killers is very weak AND with Paul Di'Anno. I would say okay if it was the 1st album even with Di'Anno, but Killers just doesn't cut it. And on the other side No Prayer For The Dying is also one of their weakest albums, so that doesn't work either. If it was Fear Of The Dark, then okay, but not No Prayer For The Dying. My assessment was that Iron Maiden had 5 stellar albums in a row, but never managed 6.

I'd still vote Rush but Jethro Tull's Benefit through Minstrel in the Gallery run is pretty tough. I prefer that over Sabbath anyway.

Really remarkable, that bit.  Like Elton John releasing "Madman Across the Water", "Honky Chateau" (6 months),  "Don't Shoot Me..." (8 months), "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" (9 months for a double album!) and Caribou (8months) all within nine months or less of each other.  Or, take Creedence Clearwater Revival, whose album releasing career spanned all of four years with the release of seven albums.

I like No Prayer so I would even go Debut>NPFTD. Thats 8.

Stand Up is a good album and it's pretty close for me but ultimately I went with Minstrel.
It IS a gigantic run of 7 though. I only said 6 because it's this thread's magic number

For me, besides Sabbath and RUSH, bands that would be in the hunt for best six album run include...

Beatles:  Rubber Soul - White Album
Zeppelin: I - Presence
Floyd:  Meddle - The Wall
AC/DC:  High Voltage (International) - Back in Black
Steely Dan: Countdown to Ecstasy - Gaucho
Queen:  Sheer Heart Attack-The Game
Van Halen: Debut-1984

If pressed to pick one, I'd probably go with AC/DC as the strongest run beginning to end.

King Crimson?

Discipline
