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
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.
F*cked Up - David Comes to Life
Both incredible pieces of work.

Everything must go The Manics
Queen is Dead The Smiths
Urban Hymns The Verve
5th symphony Shostakovich
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
Joe Jackson....Jumpin' Jive
Control by Pedro the Lion
I never skip tracks on any album....
Revolution 9 on Beetles' White Album
OK Computer is my probably my favourite album ever, but I don't believe anybody can listen to Fitter Happier without wishing that it would just hurry up and end.
Oh and that pisshead bit on Cream's Goodbye
Wish you were here - Pink Floyd
Back in Black - ACDC
Of those not mentioned already,
The Final Cut, Pink Floyd

Leftfield - Leftism
RATM - RATM
Neil Young - Tonight's the Night
Manics - Holy Bible
Nirvana - In Utero
> > Ramones - It's alive
> > The rezillos - can't stand
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.
Hotel California is up there for me to listen from start to finish.
Talking of California the album of the same name by Mr Bungle is a start-to-finish listen for me every time...
Iron Maiden - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
But I rarely skip through tracks on an album anyway, unless they're truly dire or I'm really not in the mood for them.
May have missed the mention in the thread but if not:
Boards of Canada - Music has the right to children
Also worth a punt
Isobel Cambell and Mark Langham - Ballad of broken seas.
Oh - and (as I've just done it) Talk Talk Talk - Psychedelic Furs.
David Bowie - Hunky Dory.
> Oh - and (as I've just done it) Talk Talk Talk - Psychedelic Furs.
Same would go for The Psychedelic Furs - The Psychedelic Furs for me.
I've never fast-forwarded the intro to India either ;)
> I've never fast-forwarded the intro to India either ;)
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.
They only made two great records. First & Second.
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 :)
> They only made two great records. First & Second.
Not heard the others - not much cop then?
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.
Ah shame that - never realised they had any degree of success, except with Pretty in Pink.
> Some good ones on Forever Now
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.
Noel Gallaghers high flying birds - Noel Gallaghers high flying birds
Nirvana - in utero
Nirvana - MTV unplugged
Kasabian - empire
Kasabian - kasabian
The stone roses - the stone roses
The coral - magic and medicine
Just of top of my head, quite a few self titled albums for some reason.
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
> The Stone Roses.the Stone Roses
Uncanny. Those are my two.
(how do you skip tracks on Chillout?)
Thick as a Brick - Jethro Tull
It's one long track, and there is not really a good place to stop it.
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.
jimi hendrix exp-are you experienced
taking heads-talking heads 77
joy division-unknown pleasures
others come and go but these would always be on my list!
There is a delicious irony to that!
Haha, true that!
I got to give it a mention played it to death since downloading a couple of days ago
Alt-J An Awesome Wave
Nomeansno - Wrong.
