13 Non-stop Albums

The albums on this list are the ones that I listen to straight rthrough with out skipping or on rshuffle. The order is kinda a rcombination of how much I like the album plus how often I listen rrto it start to end minus how often I listen to it on shuffle (mixed rwith the artist's other work ror any other way). Only one per band, rbut I noted in the description if another album from rthe same rband could potentially work. Recs would be nice but they probably rwon't be useful rfor a list like this, so just let me know if I missed ranything instead.
13Of Montreal
Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?


This one is the lowest because it is more of a really good collection of songs with some good transitions than any of the other albums here. The two bad songs in a row toward the end make it very tempting to skip back to the good stuff. But for the beginning and ending it is perfect enough to earn a spot.
12The Flaming Lips
Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots


This one would be much higher but I pick out the obvious songs to listen to separately from the album a lot
11Deerhunter
Microcastle


This one fits here on the list mainly because of the shorter tracks in the middle of the album, which fit perfectly into the idea and mood of Microcastle and add a lot to the album but fall short when they come up on shuffle.
10Gorillaz
Demon Days


Although most of the songs on here can be heard alone, the interesting transitions and contrasting song placements make this one a little better when going straight through.
9Against Me!
Reinventing Axl Rose


Pints of Guinness Make You Strong is my favorite song off this one and once I play that I'm in the mood for what next and so on.
8Dr. Manhattan
Dr. Manhattan


The songs on Dr. Manhattan's near masterpiece are only enhanced when going through the entire album song by song. From the fades of noise jam sections to the placement of acoustic break "Tracey's Buns", this is a really well thought out album with no skip-able songs.
7Modest Mouse
The Moon & Antarctica


This album flows really well and really showcases Modest Mouse's skills as songwriters. This and Lonesome Crowded West are their two best albums, but The Moon and Antarctica benefits from the song placement while West does not.
6Between the Buried and Me
Colors


I'm not really sure if there is any place to start this album besides track one, and once you start it it is kinda hard to tell when one song stops and the next starts. Pretty much the only metal album I ever go start to finish with.
5Pink Floyd
The Dark Side of the Moon


Pretty straight forward for anyone who has heard it. Plus it came out when you had to sit through every song to get to the good ones anyway. Could have been The Wall, but The Wall isn't nearly as good of an album musically so I rarely listen to it anyway. On second thought Animals would be a better 2nd Pink Floyd choice.
4Neutral Milk Hotel
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea


The songs on Neutral Milk Hotel's masterpiece are perfectly placed. From dividing the 3 part 'King of Carrot Flowers' into two songs to placing Two Headed Boy's part one and two on nearly opposite ends of the album to the transition in and out of short yet meaningful interludes there aren't many reasons to skip around the songs on this one. I listen to On Avery Island start to end somewhat frequently but its not nearly as good as Aeroplane.
3Weezer
Pinkerton


Pinkerton loosely tells a story, and especially considering the songs here don't mix well with the songs from other Weezer albums I usually just go straight from Tired of Sex to Butterfly when I'm in the mood for any song on here. Blue Album could also be here, but sometimes I'll mix those ones up with the few good post- Pinkerton Weezer songs for variety.
2Arcade Fire
Funeral


Not really sure why, but for some reason I almost always listen to this one straight through. The three Arcade Fire albums have pretty different feels to them to begin with and the first two songs are also my favorite two so that probably influences this. Neon Bible might have been a better pick because some of the songs on that one need to be heard in context to be enjoyed fully.
1Radiohead
Ok Computer


Even though every song on here is worth listening to alone (even Fitter Happier), I rarely choose to do so. I'm strongly considering combining all my files into one super long song so it wont mess up the Airbag to Paranoid Android count down when I forget to turn off shuffle. Kid A is also another one for this list from Radiohead, but I since I've never listened to Treefingers out of context I picked Ok Computer.
