    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.
    Another thread dedicated to music. You know how to get my attention. What a shame.. I don't have full album? (anyway, no one would listen if I made one because of the length...)

    But here's song from me.



    full eleven minutes - the amount of time I spent reading this entire thread. Now, I just need to find the time to listen to all this.

    I love Infinity on High but the first song I ever properly fell in love with was Sophomore Slump or Comeback of the Year, so I've gotta go the other way I'm afraid.

    I think A Fever You Can't Sweat Out has better songs, but I discovered Vices and Virtues during my first serious relationship so I guess it resonates with me.

    I'm more confused that you had Red on your list. I thought Speak Now and Fearless were both so much better.
    I think the Red thing is more about the resonatiom thing- I acknowledge Speak Now especially is a better complete album but I was in a long distance relationship when Red came out and it was permanently on in my car and the various songs helped me during the highs and lows of that.

    I like sophomore slump back too....
    Also champagne for my real friends and real pain for my sham friends... Like how clever is that play on words ?!

    *******s by Motorhead has been on in my car all week, and it's one of their most under-rated albums; Don't Let Daddy Kiss Me and Lost In the Ozone are both utterly chilling.
    *******s is a great album. The bass solo in Lost In The Ozone is awesome.

    Also, Dark Side of the Moon <3
    And Wish You Were Here. And, to a certain degree, Atom Heart Mother. I thought Division Bell was kinda under-rated too, personally I think it's a brilliant album with some killer composition.

    Great admission of Red. She is a guilty pleasure for a lot of people I reckon.

    Also I had only by the night in mine as well (if you saw). Just love it when Closer starts up.

    Let's get together and listen to the Xx forever? I can listen to the Intro on loop forever and ask there's a really good remix online of reconsider. I will find it and edit it in !
