You're called 2112 and you list the best Rush four album run as Hemispheres, Permanent Wave, Moving Pictures and Signals?? Why didn't you call yourself RushmanSignals??

Anyway the best RUSH FIVE album run is 2112, A Farewell to Kings, Hemispheres, Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures.

best 4 album run in Rush's career imo is AFTK through MP, but 2112 through Signals is total gold, and I like CoS more than Hems

best 4 album run in zep's career imo is II through Houses of the Holy, but I through PG is all great

best 4 album run for VH is probably what you've got there, but they're one of those 6 album run kind of bands, VHI through 1984

best 4 album run by any band in my book...let's just keep it simple and go with Queen II through A Day At The Races, even though News Of The World is begging to be in there.

Placebo:

Black Market Music
Sleeping With Ghosts
Meds (weakest)
Battle for the Sun


D-A-D:

HelpYourSelfish
Simpatico
Everything Glows
Soft Dogs (weakest)


Queen:

Queen II
Sheer Heart Attack
A Night At The Opera
A Day At The Races (weakest)

or

Jazz
The Game
Hot Space
The Works (weakest)


Nuno Bettencourt:

Schizophonic
Mourning Widows
Furnished Souls For Rent (weakest)
Population 1



For Rush I would go either:

Permanent Waves
Moving Pictures
Signals (weakest)
Grace Under Pressure

or

Grace Under Pressure
Power Windows
Hold Your Fire
Presto (weakest)

After Hold Your Fire it is a lot of love one album then don't like the next as much. With my favourites being Snakes & Arrows, Roll The Bones, and Test For Echo.

For REM, I'd start with either Murmur, or Fables, or just go with the first six.

Really tough to beat the three tuns listed in the OP.  The twelve-album colkection would make a pretty decent desert island set.
