    Totally agree. Hard Again is one of those albums that, no matter what song from it is playing, I have to play the whole album. It’s like trying to eat just one potato chip. I can’t do it.

    If you like 60's Jazz, and music for which it takes a few listens to "get" I recommend Miles Davis' "In s Silent Way" and Eric Dolphy's "Out to Lunch." Took me many listens and now: I am disappointed every time I listen to them that they end. I want more.

    Brilliant song writing, singing, production and playing by the great Ben Mink.
    A masterpiece, IMO.

    I've never heard anything from it except Forever Autumn, which I used to think was just a Moody Blues song.

    Many of XTC's are worth a beginning-to-end listen but this one is amazing.

    My all time favorite album to listen to start to finish

    The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars - Bowie

    I also like Diamond Dogs a lot. Also Bowie. That one was kind of written as a musical version of 1984. Kind of because he couldn't get the rights to actually do a musical.

    My current favorite is The Getaway by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There's nothing truly astounding about the songs themselves (and by that I mean there's probably no Under the Bridge or Californication, or some hit that will be remembered for 20 years) but it's just such a solid album that's fun to listen to. I really enjoy it.

    If you're on Spotify, When The Kite String Pops- Acid Bath. (long story short, they're not on any other streaming platforms)

    If not, I got three.

    Conference of the Birds- OM
    Live at Roadburn 2010-2012-2014- Bong
    White Pony- Deftones

    Had to get some metal in here. But Bong and OM would definitely have more appeal if you're not into harsher music.
