Boy with out more qualifiers you are going to get a wide world of music suggestions
There are literally thousands of "Great Albums" spanning the 5 decades from the Beatles rise in 60's to now

But right off the bat for great Pop Rock (arguably the Beatles genre )
I can think of the PaperBoys "Road to Ellenside" Album

I describe it as 'Pop music for adults'.

Here's a sample track that I mistakenly thought was Paul McCartney when I first heard it.

Since XTC got so much love here, I want to give a recommendation for their 2018 Documentary, "This Is Pop" on Showtime. Great insight into the band and how Andy Partridge's issues paralleled Brian Wilson, turning both into even better songwriters.

Probably a zillion answers to the question, which could easily be "what are your favorite albums?"

One group I like is The Go-Betweens, Australian group that never got much attention. The album "Oceans Apart" (2005) stands out. An older song "Streets of your Town" occasionally got some airplay.

Reading your short post and only knowing "Beatles" as far as your style...this was the first thing that popped into mind.

One of the best end to end CD's I have (and I have a few)

Could not agree more.

Add John Hiatt's magnificent "Bring the Family" to the mix, too.

Oh, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss's "Raising Sand" collaboration too.

There's enough superb music in those three to keep anyone occupied for a while.

Early 90's band called "Jellyfish" were very Beatles/Macca influenced. Check out their "Bellybutton" and "Spilt Milk" albums.

Default The Fat Man album

That's what it's called, Wikipedia says so:

"Nils Lofgren is a 1975 album by Nils Lofgren, also known as the "Fat Man Album". It was his first solo album, following the breakup of his group, Grin.

The album was critically praised at the time of its release, most notably in a 1975 Rolling Stone review by Jon Landau. The 1983 Rolling Stone Record Guide said it was a "tour de force of unquenchable vitality and disarming subtlety." In 2007, nearly 32 years after the release of Nils Lofgren, the album was again praised by Rolling Stone in the "Fricke's Picks" column, where David Fricke said it was one of 1975's best albums.The album was on the Billboard 200 chart for nine weeks and peaked at number 141 on May 10, 1975.

In 2007 the album was finally re-mastered and rereleased by Hip-O Select after being out of print for nearly a decade on compact disc.

The circus billboard that appears on the cover of this album also appears in an episode of The Monkees television series, "The Monkees at the Circus," season 1, episode 22."

Most definitely! Two of the best neo-psych albums ever and a singing drummer to boot! You might also want to check out Baby Lemonade if you can find any of their albums.

His 5th solo album from 1979 simply titled 'Nils' is also excellent.

My own take is that only two songs on it stand the test of time: The Bryan MacLean composition "Alone Again Or" and the Arthur Lee original "Andmoreagain"--the rest of the lot: completely forgettable material, in the main.

I much prefer Love's first two albums, the eponymous "Love" and "Da Cappo."

By the way, I can't prove the case with definitive conclusiveness, but I maintain that perhaps Clapton got his idea to employ a surf-style picking technique on Cream's classic "Dance The Night Away" ("Disraeli Gears" lp, of course) from two songs on Love's first album, "Gazing" and "No Matter What You Do" (both Arthur Lee compositions), where Love's lead guitarist Johnny Echols cuts loose with a couple of my favorite 60s era guitar solos, adumbrating Clapton's virtuoso instrumental takes in "Dance The Night Away."

"Gazing"--The Johnny Echols solo begins at about the 1:30 mark; Arthur Lee actually announces it:



"No Matter What You Do"--Johnny Echols takes two solos on this one; in my opinion, the second solo is better.

'Da Capo' probably has a strong case for having the best Side 1 of an album ever! However, perhaps because I got to see and hear Arthur and Johnny play those songs live so many times. where the songs really came alive, we'll have to agree to disagree on 'Forever Changes', which remains in my all-time Top Ten.
