OT: What Album Do You Listen To All The Way Through?

Submitted by ILL_Legel on June 9th, 2012 at 3:29 AM

Mid afternoon in Shanghai drinking and listening to music.  Looking for feedback from the Board on albums (I say that in a generic sense in today's digital world) you put on and listen to all the way through. 

Most of mine are old school since, one, I'm old (not like Herm old though), and, two, I just download one off songs these days.

Please enlighten me on what albums you play and listen to from start to finish so I can download some more music.

A few off the top of my head that I listen to from start to finsih.

Paul's Boutique - Beastie Boys

Kid A - Radiohead

It's Dark and Hell is Hot - DMX

Gentlemen - Afghan Whigs

The Roots Come Alive - The Roots

Room On Fire - The Strokes

Bossanova - The Pixies

The Suburbs - Arcade Fire

Disintegration - The Cure

Nevermind - Nirvana

Life After Death - Notorious BIG

Murmur - REM

Pleased To Meet Me - The Replacements

Violent Femmes - Violent Femmes

Pretty Much Any Grateful Dead Live

That's enough....yes, I listen to The Beatles and The Smiths too...

 

EDIT:  As expected you all came through!  I spent way too many hours checking out a lot of different music today and dowloading quite a bit.  Now it is sleep time in Shanghai.  Thanks!

Just about any Radiohead, Wilco, Arcade Fire, or the National album I tend to listen to from start to finish. Partially, I like to start with Pablo Hunny and go chronically all the way up to the King of Limbs, and then work my way back down. It's like weightlifting, but with radiohead.

In terms of ALBUMS (vinyl, of course), I listen to all of my albums all the way through.  I don't buy albums that I don't plan on listening all the way through.

 

But my top 5 are:

Arcae Fire- The Suburbs

The XX- self titled

Bill Withers- The Best Of

The Black Keys- The Big Come up

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros- Up From Below

Damn I was wondering if someone would break from the mold of adult alternative, grunge era or classic rock and branch out. The Avett Brothers are outstanding song writers and extemely creative. I caught the Carolina Chocolate Drops last year and they were unique as well. Old Crow Medicine Show...if you enjoy a folk twist.
