Porcupine Tree
The Mars Volta
Mahavishnu Orchestra
I would say King Crimson, but I hate Beat and Three of a Perfect Pair.
Magma is close as well.

Ulver for me. From their Black Metal releases to their glitch stuff, all of it, great
Russian Circles has never failed me
The Beatles, cliché, I know but it's true

I used to have a few bands like that--Megadeth through the "system has failed," and Metallica and Pink Floyd when I was like 18.

but now there's not much. 

although there is this vocal group, trio medieval, that I cannot turn off once it's on. something has to take me away from it, like a phone call or my 2 year old need something. something like that.

oh yeah. I do love everything by In Flames. I may not get much love for that here, but there it is.

oh, and Moody Blues...still LOVE everything they do.

jeez, worst thought-out post by me ever. It must be that Trio Medieval i'm listening to.

I would definitely have to say Beardfish for this one. They're so consistent, every album is great.

Very hard to do in my book (especially if you make more than three albums).  I can't think of a single prolific band that never disappointed me with a release.  I'll say this: Genesis from Trespass through Duke was an amazing run (and I could even be talked into extending it all the way to Invisible Touch).  But the first and last albums are pretty bad, and We Can't Dance was just OK.  Another one that comes close for me is echolyn.

I really don't know what I was thinking when I wrote this. GG's 4 last albums have all got some good songs IMO, but in no way were they not a disapointment in comparison to their first 7.

For me, King Crimson is the all-time best,
I almost love all the tracks produced by "Gabriel-era Genesis"
The next one may be, Pink Floyd. ;)

I'd say Mastodon fits the bill quite nicely, not a bad album yet (maybe Remission slightly weaker than the others, but still not bad).
 
Tool can do no wrong either in my ears. Contrary to popular opinion here, Lateralus is my least favourite album of theirs but it's a good album nonetheless.

When I was 14, it was MEtallica. LOL. I still think they're cool, but St. Anger was bs, and Death Magnetic was only a little better.

Nowadays, my prog side says Rush can do no wrong. My metal side says In Flames can do no wrong. I love that band.

A LONG TIME ago, Moody Blues could do no wrong....same with pink floyd...but those to greats DO have their respective duds....

Pink Floyd is one of my all-time favorites, but considering how inconsistent their early work is, I am surprised to see them listed so much in this thread. 

My picks: 

Rush (even their least best albums are still good)
Porcupine Tree
Radiohead
The Flower Kings

Steve Hackett hands down, done no wrong. I like everything he does including the blues and the classical stuff. I even find his more commercial album, Cured, a worthwhile listen. He's been on a real streak of greatness over the last fifteen years, churning out one good thing after another.
