Devolution here,

Now, most of the time, this is impossible. Many of you could come up with lists of albums from beginning to end that you can listen to over and over again, but I am going to ask you just that.

What album could you listen from beginning to end without skipping a song?

Try to just list one or two, overdosing makes people upset because they wanted the one you chose.

I agree with "Joyride", and you can add to that:

Regatta De Blanc and Outlandos d'Amour - ok, almost anything by The Police.
Live At The Marquee - debut album by a great british Rhythm & Blues band, Nine Below Zero.
Babylon By Bus - Bob Marley & The Wailers
Glittering Prize 81-92 - Simple Minds

Actually, there's quite a few - let me consider a little more and I'll add more later.

Devolution here,

Really? Joyride, I might have to invest in it then.

This one didn't take that long to figure out.
London Calling - the Clash.

When Rolling Stone picked it as the 9th best album of all time, I was in shock that they would have appreciation for punk in the late 70's.

Devolution again,

By the way, I know I didn't put it in the rules earlier, but stay way from greatest hits albums. Anyone can play a greatest hits from beginning to end. That is why they make them.

I'll stay well away from 'compilation' albums, cos they are just marketing tools for the record companies. But if a band I like has enough great tracks to put out on one superb collection, why shouldn't I mention it?

Anyway, most Greatest Hit's albums aren't so great - however the Simple Minds one is just that. Deacon Blue have one as well (name escapes me right now) which is equally good.

Part of Devolution's post:

...London Calling - The Clash.

When 'Rolling Stone' picked it as the 9th best album of all time, I was in shock that they would have appreciation for punk in the late 70's.

'Rolling Stone' magazine has always been a latecomer when it came to the punk scene. Would you believe they never got around covering The Clash until around 1979, a couple years after their debut album?

I have always suspected it was because the 'Rolling Stone' staff had always been attuned to the 60's rock scene and the early to mid-70's mainstream rock, but probably considered punk and new-wave to be too threatening to them.

I put greatest hits because that is the cds I listen to. I don't know any ordinary Molly Hatchet cds, but I do know the greatest hits because that is what I listen to over and over. Not being able to put these down here is quite stupid.
And by the way...not all greatest hits can be played from beginning to end. I have some where the first two songs are good and the rest I have never heard of or they just plain suck. and you all know what I am talking about.
