    Bob Calvert - Captain Lockheed and the Starfighters

    My whole bass playing style originates from listening to that album.

    Saw a solo gig of his year ago - he was in full WW2 Air Commander regalia, complete with pipe - with a riding crop in one hand and a Wasp synth in the other. Wonderfully bonkers.

    Talking Heads / ’77
    Young Marble Giants / Colossal Youth
    10cc / The Original Soundtrack

    OK, I'm intimately familiar with "77" and "Colossal Youth," but apart from the single, I've never heard "The Original Soundtrack." I'm here to report it's batshit crazy, at least so far. Wow. And it puts me in mind of two great start-to-finish records: "Blueberry Boat," by the Fiery Furnaces and "Paris 1919," by John Cale. Thanks for this.

    Ill add a couple
    Ashra Temple new age of earth

    Do you have ‘The Private Tapes’ CDs? I’ve listened to them hundreds of times. My fav from Manuel Gottsching along with Correlations and Blackouts.

    I do. They are all pretty good. I just find myself going back new age of earth most often.

    Have not regularly listened to any albums for a long while now, save for a first few listens when buying something new...

    From days of old, and if I were to put any of them on now I would go from end to end

    Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin and Houses of the Holy

    ...

    Portishead - Dummy
    Morcheeba - Big Calm
    Gorillaz - Gorillaz

    I'm sure that there's many more..just can't think of them

    Forgot about these listed above
    plus:

    Queen — A Day at the Races
    Queen — A Night at the Opera
    Genesis — The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway

    I’m surprised by the number of people who listed an Art of Noise album. Also surprised that no ones said Guns and Roses or Metallica.
    Maybe we don’t tend to be that group.

    Oh and poop, I forgot
    Thomas Dolby — Aliens Ate my Buick

    God it’s good.

  • edited February 1

    Anyone want to opine on what makes an album congeal enough for wanting to listen to the whole thing other than I like every song, which is perfectly valid BTW.

    For me it’s texture of the individual songs and how they work together to create if you will a longer sonic narrative, not necessarily by theme, topic, or lyrical subject but a more sublime interrelationships. Hmm my thoughts sound vague. Hope that someone like @richardyot has more concrete opinions.

    Damn it

    Bjork – Medúlla
    Gardenstate Soundtrack
    Soundgarden — Superunknown

  • how could I forget Jesus and Mary chain - psychocandy? shame on me :)

    Im unsure what the rest of the albums are. you need to tell me the artists name ^^

    Fripp and Eno: No Pussyfooting (first side) i always find Swastika Girls disappointing after the first side, but usually listen anyway.
    Radiohead: In Rainbows - I'd probably listen to any Radiohead album all the way through though
    Pere Ubu: Dub Housing
    Television: Adventure
    Crosby Stills Nash and Young: Wooden Nickel (bootleg - Big Sur festival 1969)
    Angel Olsen: Phases
    New Order: Power, Corruption and Lies - again, I'd listen to any of their albums, but PC&L is my favourite.

    Ziggy Stardust. Rare album where the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts (and it’s parts are incredible). Hot take, I know 😊

    Love it to Death by Alice Cooper. Most under appreciated rock album of all time.

    YES to all. As much as I love Bowie I think this is the only album I can't skip a song on. Alice Cooper is generally under appreciated.
    Anyone remember his appearance on the Muppet Show

    Yes indeed, one of my particular fav’s is the pilot interview, “Is that mascara you’re wearing”. That whole passage is so funny yet so starkly true.

    Been listening to 'Grotesque' and it tickles me to have found the point between Beefheart and Ween.

    Sharing that with my 3 year old a few years back was the moment I thought "this fatherhood thing ain't so bad." Now at 5 he can play Billion Dollar Babies in its entirety on the drums.
