Nobody has made what Metallica made with their four first records. They are not only 4 masterpieces, but also they created a new genre and redefined with every album the barriers of that genre. The fact that they also made that aggresive genre skyrocket to the masses is another amazing acomplishment by itself.

Also what Led Zeppein did wasn't easy either.

Being the most successful cover band ever is not a walk in the park.

Zep and The Black Crowes for sure but this thread begins and ends with VH.
After the first album, the next 3 VH albums are pretty hit or miss. Pound for pound not close to alotnof others mentioned so far.

As many mentioned...
Zeppelin
Black Crowes (End of an era when Marc Ford left)

I'll add these guys to the list
Blackberry Smoke
  1. Bad Luck Ain't No Crime
  2. Little Piece of Dixie (not a bad song on this one)
  3. The Whippoorwill
  4. Holding All the Roses
+ Heck, I'd even add their 5th as a solid release

My initial thought was The Beatles (Parlophone releases) and Led Zeppelin, but after further thought, I'll include these as well:
Eagles
VH
Aerosmith
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
AC/DC
Foo Fighters

Once again this thread is quite subjective, and your mileage may vary, but these artists are the ones I could quickly say-"yeah, they had a great 4 album run"! There's probably a few more for me to add, but to have to think hard about it detracts for the question.....
