When did you last listen to a whole album, all the way through, all tracks in order?

    The last one I listened to from start to finish was a 1930s-1950s boogie woogie compilation CD by various artists. 25 boogie woogie songs in a row gets pretty tedious and finishing it was a challenge. It was part of a 4-CD, 100-song box set and I'm not up for that challenge, yet.

    Often actually, last weekend it was Jason Isbell's "Southeastern" and Boz Scaggs "Out of the Blues".

    I listen to every album I buy that way.. 1st track to the last, straight through. For me it's the only way to really get the complete vibe of the album.

    Every single day.

    I have quite a long commute, so can listen two roughly an album and a half before arriving where I need to be.

    ...'13th step' - A Perfect Circle.

    I find you need to be driving to do this. Over the weekend I hired a VW camper van and managed to get through one Paul Simon album (a best of, but I think it counts) and one Kila album.

    As @Frankie said, that's the first thing I do with new purchases, and I often go back to re-listen that way. I do, however, have just about everything save classical, Christmas and more straight-ahead (or far out) jazz in a giant playlist that is on constant shuffle when I'm going on a long drive or at the gym.

    Recently (this week), I've listened to Larkin Poe (Peach), Carolina Chocolate Drops (Leaving Eden) and Rhiannon Giddens (Freedom Highway). The latter two really should be listened to that way, and I'm glad to see some music still being released that's all of "a piece" with some thought to the organization.

    wednesday I listened to the diamonds and gasoline record twice and today I listened to the Doobie Bros Stampede... LOUD in the truck (I put a good stereo in and I just love cranking it)

    I'm gonna listen to diamonds and gasoline again tonight (long drive tonight) and I'm preprogrammed so I will really dig it... in other words, I've been thinking about it which makes it even more of a sure thing.

    Most of the time. I catch myself listening to a whole album just by driving. I play a lot of LP's in my collection so there's been a lot of Beatles albums.

    Almost daily. When I'm pressed for time and don't finish the whole album I'll note which track I last listened to so I know where to start when I pick it back up again. For those of us who grew up when 33rpm vinyl was the medium de jour it can be borderline sacrilegious to listen to songs "a la carte"! ...and remember NEVER turn off "A Day in the Life" from Sgt.Pepper until that final sustained piano "C chord" has finished or you'll have 7 years of bad luck.

    Now that’s a tremendous album. I knew it back in the ‘80s then didn’t hear it again till last year when I was reminded of it by a comment somewhere and found it inn a Apple Music — it gets frequent listens (always on order from start to finish!).
    I love the fact that it’s just a band that Manzanera and Eno put together, including old friends, to play a handful of shows while Roxy Music were on a break: and luckily for us they recorded one of those shows to give us a spectacular live album of great music and great playing.
