I'd have to say just about all of my albums I feel are like this. When I listen to them, I listen to the entire thing even if I have to rough it thorugh a couple tracks.

Have to agree with these guys this is the only way I listen to all my releases it feels I don't know unwholesome listening to just a few tracks on a record then putting it back :? :P

I think he may mean more which albums can we listen to from start to finish and like on a consistent level of enjoyment?

Anything by Running Wild upto 1997, Most consistent band in the world has never ever done a ballad either.

I listen to 95% of my albums entirely.
The only exception is when I make home-compilations when I have to travel by road or by train.

I must be the exception here as i listen only to 20% of my albums in their entirety. The album must RIP TOO MUCH to listen to it from start to finish and there are really few of that kind, according to my standards of course.

Am I the only one who prefers listening to an album one side at a time? Yesterday I listened to the A sides of Acid, Vulcano, ... And today, the B sides are up!! I don't do it like this all the time, but definitely a lot.

I do that often when I listen to vinyl LP's. But with CD's I usually listen to the whole record. I only skip if I just want to listen to a select song.

I think it would've been better to ask which albums you CAN'T listen from beggining to end.
Those albums that have a bunch of great songs, but there's a coule of track that suck, like Witchfinder General's "Friends Of Hell", for example.

I can hardly remember the last time I skipped a song when listening to an album.
It was probably "Black Arrows" last time I listened to Hail to England. :D

Good call on Running Wild! Very consistent band that rarely (until recently) did a bad song

I play most albums all the way through, though with vinyl I do sometimes play albums one side at a time.

I guess I have higher standards than most. I'd say that out of the several thousand albums in my collection maybe 30-40% have track lists that are awesome in their entirety. Having to strain to get through the weak tracks doesn't make for an enjoyable experience for me...
