    One Minute ago I heard the perfect Album Misplaced Childhood by Marillion. I' ve been listening to this Album, since I was a 16 Year old child. Not constantly. Every year or two I take this Album and listen to IT for a view days. Then I put IT back to the other CDS. For me it's a perfect, timeless Album.

    With me, if I put on one Ry album I end up to listening to NOTHING but Ry for the next few days....I have EVERYTHING Ry has done, and it's like eating potato chips...I can't eat just one...NO WAY!! I'm the same with Ryland....

    Over the weekend, a couple times last week, a couple times last weekend, at least once the week before that... I think you see what I'm getting at.

    There are some bands that I love dearly that write better albums than singles, if you know what I mean. I would be hard pressed to pick out the names of some particular songs, but tell you which album they were on in a heart beat. Wilco, BoDeans, The Tallest Man On Earth, Elvis Costello, Franz Ferdinand, Jack White, all these and more are the types of people I will generally listen to entire albums of rather than pick out a song. And that list is leaving out the really big name bands that are easy to throw into this discussion.

    I love albums!

    I can't remember it's been that long. I think Rubber Soul was the last about 3-5 years ago.

    I listen to a lot of records from top to bottom. My Spotify is not just a song here and there. I listen to it as it was intended. There are countless albums but I can name at least 100 easily.

    Where is a good place to start with him? I only know him for the awesome guitar in the movie Paris, TX. Beyond that, I'm clueless.

    Just listened to my Howard Roberts 2×CD, "DIRTY'N'FUNKY / H.R. is a Dirty Guitar Player".

    Played both CD's all the way through. His composition, "Dirty Old Bossa Nova", is my favorite.

    I always try to do this when diving into new (to me) stuff...if an artist/band can pull it off, it's a memorable one, maybe even more than that.

    Last month's results:
    Feist almost made it (Pleasure)
    Depression Cherry from Beach House made it
    and Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit's new one made it--barely.

    almost everytime, i was born in the lp/cassette era and i got the habit to put a record on and let it go.

    Nowadays sometimes i skip one or two tracks on an album maybe, but usually it goes from start to finish, and without having to turn the record or the side of the casette :)

    Friday.

    'Band on the Run' on vinyl, which meant I had to turn the disc over :)

    Every Monday and Friday. Friday I drive to Austin; Monday back to Houston. It's about a 4, 5 or 6 album drive. I carry a big old canvas bag of CD's in the car. I have a bandmate with an ongoing lending library deal. We swap 3 or 4 CD's every other week.

    If it's one of my favorites and I haven't heard it in awhile, I might listen to it twice in a row. I try to mix up the old favorites with new, never-heard before stuff. Helps keep the serenity now aspect of driving 3 hours in mixed traffic. Monday is not so bad, 'til I hit Houston, but Friday is not-so-wayno.

    About a month ago I fired up London Calling and listened to it all the way. But really even before the digital era, I was fond of mix tapes because so few album were worth bothering with the whole thing.

    Smiths. First album, the eponymous one.

    I listen to it straight through all the time.
