    What are your favourite full albums? Sometimes there are songs that you love and artists obviously but do you ever get it when a whole album resonates with you and you can just play the whole thing through. I particularly like it when the end of songs lead into the intro of the next song.

    Here's a very random selection of albums that I've particularly loved over the past decade or so. Please allow that some of them are from my emo teenage years but I still have a soft spot.

    Colour it in- The Maccabees
    The Suburbs- Arcade Fire (amazing concept album)
    XX- the XX
    A Fever you can't sweat out- Panic! At the disco
    Red- T.Swift
    Let Go- Avril Lavigne
    Fallen- Evanescence
    Infinity on High- Fall Out Boy
    Future Sex Love Sounds- JT
    Shock Value- Timbaland
    King of Limbs- Radiohead
    Only by the night- Kings of Leon


    Tbf this is a pretty juvenile selection but I think it's because it's from back in the days where I bought album CDs for my car etc. Whereas now I just listen to Spotify playlists or download individual songs on the Internet.

    Anyone got any full albums they love? Especially concept albums :yep:

    Tagging some peep I've discussed musak with recently.

    There are probably many others but they are what I can think of atm.

    DSotM is an incredible concept album and yes. Start to finish. No distractions.

    To-do list: listen to unknown pleasures.

    I'm noticing a concept. Also I just added only by the night by KoL to mine but it was so close between that and come around sundown. I love pyro and the whole feel of the album. I can imagine listening to it on a road trip across America.

    Honestly that album is definitely my teenage years summed up in 11 songs. Favourite song on the album? It's a three way tie between Naked, Tomorrow and Nobody's Fool for me. :innocent:

    Haven't even heard of any of these artists / bands

    What genre of music do they fall into?

    Complicated is so main stream though. Come on be an Avril hipster. Is that an oxymoron?!

    Alestorm plays a mix of folk metal and power metal (specifically 'pirate metal'), Finntroll plays folk metal and Suotana is a melodic death metal band. Their album Frostrealm is gorgeous, I could listen to it all day

    I haven't heard anything from her latest album. I like the fact that she only exists as a figment of my 14 year old brain. Accepting she has new music would be accepting that I'm grown up.
