Motown - on 26 Oct 2012
On drive to work today listened to Nevermind for the first time in years and realised that it's one of the few albums that, given the time, I always listen to all the way through. At present, although there will be more, I can only also include Hunky Dory - David Bowie, and OK Computer - Radiohead on that list.

Whhat's on your list?

In reply to Will Cat: I rarely skip through tracks when listening to an album - unless I'm in the car for a very short journey and want to get to a specific track before I reach my destination. Maybe it's because I'm from the vinyl generation, but I tend to think of an album as a single piece of work that shold be listened to in entirety, and in order. This annoys the hell out of my son, who's of the mp3 generation, and will happily skip through not just tracks he doesn't like, but bits of a single track too (which, it turn, annoys the hell out of me...)

In reply to Will Cat:

If I'm "actively" listening and have easy access to the Skip button, I don't think there's any album where I don't skip tracks. If I'm "passively" listening (ie it's just on in the background whilst I'm doing stuff and can't easily forward to the next track) then they run.

Velvet Underground & Nico - There isn't a poor track on this album, I especially love Run Run Run
oscaig - on 26 Oct 2012
In reply to Tall Clare: Very good call - The Decline of British Sea Power
is a brilliant album (though I'll sometimes skip tracks 2 and 3 - the thrashy ones - when not in the mood). Others I'd consider it sacreligious to skip tracks on would probably be Alligator - The National and Surfer Rosa - The Pixies.
Stevie A - on 26 Oct 2012
Nine Inch Nails - Downward Spiral
F*cked Up - David Comes to Life

Both incredible pieces of work.
ripper - on 26 Oct 2012
In reply to mountainmadness: +1 to that - I especially like All Tomorrow's Parties, and Sunday Morning (although, I think that kind of needs the context of the rest of the album for full appreciation)
LakesWinter on 26 Oct 2012
In reply to andy farnell: I always end up skipping a few tracks off Dirt, amazing album that it is. Which tracks depends on the mood I'm in when I listen to it though.

To the OP
I'm the Supervisor, Infected Mushroom
Rust in Peace, Megadeth
Lone Deranger, Hallucinogen
Ride the Lightning, Metallica

In reply to Will Cat: It's really quite amusing to see these kind of threads pop up as invariably the vast majority of answers tend to fall into of 2 categories either the older generation with numerous prog rock albums or the less old folk who's answers are almost always like looking at an NME reader's choice 100 best albums compendium.
ripper - on 26 Oct 2012
In reply to Frank4short: yep. precious little Leona Lewis or One Direction mentioned so far. I bet there are plenty of folkies, blues, soul and dance music fans who also never skip tracks though,

Mark Morris - on 26 Oct 2012
In reply to Gazlynn: Rumours, Fleetwood Mac sprang straight to mind even though I don't listen to it very often.

Fairground Attraction - First of a Million kisses, can still play this all the way through and love every song
Velvet Underground and Nico (Banana Album) - still find it it surprising

The Jesus and Mary Chain, Darklands, breaks the difficult second album rule as well - better than the first, and that was good

U2, depends on mood really but Joshua tree, Zoo and Achtung Baby are all easily playable all the way through

Everything must go, Manics

There's a few classic music ones, but they are always meant for serious listening, so have to been seen as a piece

Double whammy! Rezillos, wow! Don't see that often on a favourite album list. The 2nd gig I went to was The Ramones at Glasgow Apollo and they were supported by the Rezillo's.

I always assumed that bit was there specifically so you didn't tap your feet too fast to spill anything whilst rolling the requisite fat one.

Tom Last - on 27 Oct 2012
In reply to andy:

Hehe quite possibly, although I like to think it because they realised the album is so massively brilliant that it would be too much of a shock for the listener if it just well, started - so they have to build up nice and slow and ease us in.

I do love The Psychedelic Furs :)

Some good ones on Forever Now - after that I think 'rock stardom', america, alcoholism and money destroyed whatever creativity they may have had to start with.

I actually thought Love My Way was one of their best songs (up there with PiP, Mr Jones, India etc) - but they went a bit downhill after that.

Shame - amazing band.

This one's been mentioned a couple of times - I have to agree.

Prefer Nevermind, but that album suffers (and is skipped) because of Something in the Way

It's one long track, and there is not really a good place to stop it.
Jep_uk - on 28 Oct 2012
In reply to Southern Man:

I actually prefer in utero for some reason, probably due to sounding a bit more raw.

No way, 'something in the way' is probably one of the best tracks on Nevermind, love how dark it is, it's used brilliantly for a scene in Jarhead.
