Try some Secret Chiefs 3, perhaps Book of Horizons.

Here's a description from Wiki --

Secret Chiefs 3 (or SC3) is an avant-garde group led by guitarist/composer Trey Spruance (formerly of Mr. Bungle and Faith No More). Their studio recordings and tours have featured different line-ups, as the group performs a wide range of musical styles, mostly instrumental, including surf rock, Persian, Arab, Indian, death metal, film music, electronic music, and various others.

I can only think of a few for now:

Sgt. Peppers (and the white album too for that matter)

Also, The Yes album and maybe Fragile.

Not sure what else off the top of my head.

^ I think Steve Howe's guitar has a lot to do with it. He goes from jazz parts to rock parts to country parts then back again. I'm not sure what "clap" is but that adds another element as well. There wasn't really much classical on it. We had to wait for "Fragile" for that. I think TYA might be slightly more eclectic though.

Yeah I think so. And you're definitely right about Steve Howe's guitar.

Any album of theirs.. really even starting from the one right before TYA up through Going for the One is a can't miss.

Time and a word is the one before TYA. I agree but I actually think there's a lot of different kind of stuff on Tormato too. If you can overlook the cheesy keyboard parts there's lots to enjoy on there. :)

Martin Barre's "The Meeting" is loaded with rock, Jazz, blues, folkish parts, and all kind of stuff

Yeah I like it, just not as much as the ones before it. Actually the first Yes album I ever bought(on cassette tape) was 90125, because I heard Owner of a Lonely Heart and Leave It on the radio and liked them. I didn't know anything at all about their history or anything but I liked that tape and still do. 

And yeah Fragile is special. Kicks ass right off the bat with Roundabout, and then South Side of the Sky is very good as well.. really the whole album is great imo.

Seconded 

 
That was my first thought. 

I think many Avant-garde albums have the MOST diverse styles, most of Frank Zappa. Uncle Meat..

Weasels Ripped My Flesh..

Third Reich and Roll..
Meet the Residents shows the Residents all over the place, and one of the best debuts ever. Duck Stab has frightening nursery rhymes..

Reves from Cafe Tacuba goes through classical, to avant, to rock..

On Land and In The Sea..
L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches from Jean-Claude Vannier..


Criaturas da Noite from O Terco..
Visitation from Pekka, my favorite Pekka goes all over the place. Classical, funk-rock.. All wildly innovative and arranged like a true master.

If a boxset counts, COWBOY BEBOP CD-BOX has every genre.

I think Fragile is a good choice---Yes had found the dream team and let individuals in the band highlight their styles---the fusion of their style would call come together on their next album

OK, the one I can think about is Corvus Stone, with their second album. Though I don't know their first one so well, nor Tench Collins solo album.

Also Sigh - Imaginary Sonicscape although Mr Bungle, Secret Chiefs 3 and Estradasphere probably beat anything. Pryapisme also has quite a few. Of course Zappa but not usually as many as the aforementioned on any particular album

The White Album has always sounded like a various artists compilation album to me.
