  • Albums that you can listen to and not skip any songs

    Was discussing this with some FB friends last night, and I thought it would be an interesting topic.

    Here are some of mine (there are more)

    The Decemberists - The Hazards of Love
    Green Day - Dookie
    GnR - Appetite
    The Killers - Hot Fuss
    Kings X - King's X

      I'm sure if I put some real thought into it I would have a longer list.
      Older stuff...
      ELO-Discovery
      James Taylor-Never Cry Wolf
      Harry Belafonte- Calypso
      Sting-Mercury Falling
      Sons of the Pioneers-Wagons West
      XTC-Skylarking

      Newer stuff...
      Vampire Weekend
      My Chemical Romance-The Black Parade
      Miniature Tigers-Tell it to the Volcano
      Fun.-Aim and Ignite

      Plus about a dozen greatest hits albums of various kinds

      These days I preview albums online on spinner or grooveshark before I buy so I don't waste money on full albums with only one or two good songs.

            I also have a list of albums I used to be able to listen to w/out skipping but for a myriad of reasons cannot any longer

            Amnesiac, The Bends - Radiohead
            The Soft Bulletin - the Flaming Lips
            Feast of Wire - Calexico

            Summerteeth - Wilco
            Portishead's self titled 2nd album
            Garbage's self titled debut (in my younger years)
            ( ) - Sigur Ros

            In theory I think I can listen to Pet Sounds (Beach Boys) and American Idiot (Green Day) in one sitting.

                              I haven't even heard of about 50 per cent of the bands listed here so far....

                              Beatles - Revolver or Sgt. Pepper
                              ELO - New World Record, Discovery, Out of the Blue
                              Beach Boys - Pet Sounds (of course)

                              Anything by Nat Cole, Sinatra, Rosemary Clooney, Patti Page

                              Just a few off the top of my head.
                              God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
