Even if you can't name them all, what are some albums you immediately gave 5 stars to, after the very first listen, and you've stuck by that rating ever since?

Yeah I like Untitled better overall as well, but DR is a pleasant listen.

As for the topic at hand, there's WAYYYY too many albums to name for me personally. I'll name some lower profile albums just to spark a little conversation.

Black Sheep- A Wolf In Sheep's Clothing
Three Times Dope- Original Stylin
King Tee- At Your Own Risk
Jurassic 5- Quality Control
Da Lench Mob- Guerillaz In The Mist
Nice N Smooth- Ain't A Damn Thing Changed

Well the hip-hop and national nation and reggae nation say otherwise, but you are entitled to your own opinion.

Another example - Bicasso "Rebel Musiq" - still 5 stars today IMO.
