Tales from Topographic Oceans - Yes
I Wash My Soul in the Stream of Infinity - My Brother the Wind
Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway - Genesis
Obscured by Clouds - Pink Floyd
Close to the Edge - Yes
Trespass - Genesis
 
In that order, so Tales from Topographic Oceans wins imo.

Dream Theater - Greatest Hit (... and 21 other pretty cool songs)
Opeth - Heritage

I think that both names defines albums quite well.

Why did Opeth name it Heritage?

Red *
Tales from Topographic Oceans
Pawn Hearts
Godbluff
Still (yeah, the Vandies have some of the best ones)
The Quiet Zone / The Pleasure Dome
Ashes Are Burning
Grace for Drowning
The Raven That Refused to Sing
Selling England by the Pound
Permanent Waves

You might expect more to come.

* About the tritone: "so named because it spans three whole steps or tones, ... is classed among the most dissonant of the thirteen fundamental intervals in music. (If you turn in your college harmony assignment and have idiotically included a tritone in the final chord, you'll get it back marked in red.) Because of its searingly harsh, problematic sound, the tritone was called the diabolus in musica ('the devil in music') by medieval theorists, and some forbade its use entirely. The King Crimson metaphor -- it goes deeper than one might think." (p. 78 [from Eric Tamm's book Robert Fripp: From King Crimson to Guitar Craft. London: Faber and Faber, 1990]) All of the information is from a book called Avant Rock by Bill Martin. No, I'm not advertising it.
