Which albums do you enjoy listening to front to back?



  • This is my favourite album.
    It is perfect. Beautiful cover by Gustav Klimt (it has gold inlays which you cannot see on this youtube picture) and an outstanding recording quality.
    Especially the choral fantasy in c minor. Its called the ‚Kleine Neunte‘

    I can't believe Im the only one who likes Placebo.

    Great band! I saw you like Delasoul too..
    That was the first CD I bought after it was introduced as the new music format. I liked the album a lot, as I also was a big fan of Stetsasonic (also produced by Prince Paul). I was a young teenager when it came out.. I also liked it a lot because it had a lot of tracks: bang for the buck :smile: (CD's were expensive compared to vinyl LP's)

    If you like Placebo you'll probably like this band too: Soviet Soviet

    This hidden Delasoul track is one of my favourites: 'Brain Washed Follower'

    I wonder who came up with that look
    fad gadget?
    nah, its everybodys of Ziggy stardust?!
    maybe New York dolls?

    I missed this guy first time around.
    Just watched some youtube of Fad Gadget.
    I really like his sound and live show looks like it was great.
    What a fertile breeding ground late 70s early 80s London was!

  • That reminds me:

    New York Dolls first.

  • Afrika Bambaataa planet rock

    A: Almost all of them that I like. I don't really do playlists.

  • Quadraphonic birches

  • @Brain said:
    The first Rise Robots Rise album - it’s the one with the white cover & three primitive graphic figures in black and white w/ red in the band name logo. I bought this one on a whim - unheard & unknown - and I absolutely revere this collection of fantastic songs!

    @Brain said:

    I can add to this: I’m a big Oingo Boingo fan & their first full-fledged album ‘Only A Lad’ is - to me - a winner. Old skool, maybe... but still gels with me.

  • Abbey road, sgt pepper, revolver - obvious ones

    But my favorite album as a whole in more recent years is Brandon flowers’ first solo album “Flamingo.”

  • Love all of the great album choices I see in this thread thus far.

    Rick Springfield - Working Class Dog is another I'll add to my list. One of the best 80s Rock albums in my own opinion. :)

  • Didnt see this post the first time reading.
    This is very tempting. 200€ for 172 Cds and all of bachs works is quite a deal.
    Put it on my list :)

  • Steve Hillfish, Fish Rising:

  • Bloody @Jocphone has got me back into this, I’ve had it on repeat all week:

  • Brick by brick:

    Ha, yeah. It's superb. Well curated as well. Most discs contain top notch performances by top notch early music players. For example, the cello suites played by Anner Bylsma, who spent the better part of his life obsessing over. Astounding..

    It's an obsession I tell ya!

    Actually there was a recent Karen O & Danger Mouse single, Lux Prima, that has a couple of bars near the start that sound directly lifted from Ole Mr Wyatt's epic. Pisses me off every time coz I think they are about to play this and then realise it's something else. So that kinda reminded me.

    Bu then I get a phase of having to listen to this about twice a year. Though, as long as you are listening to Sea Song, you may as well listen to the whole album:

    Love it
