  • Perfect albums

    what makes one to have this honor anyway ?
    For me it plays right through
    now you tape or vinyl people I think always do this. But us digital people don't or I don't mostly
    in digital it's very easy to use my iPhone /tablet or mouse to point and make a play list or just play tracks as I go
    a perfect album is one I do play all the way through with no track or tracks that I cannot wait to finish.
    A few for me are
    aqualung
    Santana z bop
    dark side while I just wish I had one great quality track of great gig in the sky a fav for me.
    Lou reed has one on tidal and whike he is not a fav that album Ald his off tune speaking is really nice too hear.
    Walk on the wild side as the girls fade in louder is a cool part.
    So how many of you have this kind of attachment
    it's not about favorite artist either it's simply an album that you let play complelty
    this may fall flat for analog people but let's see anyway.

    I know (for me) when listening to digital there is much less tendency to play albums right through. It has nothing to do with the quality of sound, but rather the fingertip availability to make a change. It seems like I have this inherent need to change things up just because I can. With vinyl I'm much more relaxed as I know I'm not going to get up after a song or two since it's a pain in the ass to do so. Having said that, I don't buy albums in any format for just one song and normally listen all the way through.

        It would be wonderful if someone could compile a variety of great songs from a number of artists to produce an album of audiophile standard quality.

            That describes the difference for me when I listen either to LPs or digital. When I play a record, I expect to listen to the whole thing start to finish, both sides. Most of the time when I listen to digital, select individual tracks, or pay on shuffle. I really don't often listen to an entire album digitally.

              When I listen at home, I rarely stop an lp before the side is complete. On the other hand, while working out or when sourcing my music from an IPod I almost always have it set on shuffle. I have nearly 14,000 songs of multiple genres, of most that I really enjoy, allowing for a virtual on-going best of. And all too often, due to the number of songs, I will be re-introduced to a band or group I haven't listened to in awhile.

                When I listen to digital, I use playlists but the lists are of complete lps.

                  With digital is reminds me of having those buttons on your old car radio, hit one and change the channel or skip ahead or bypass a track. With vinyl I just set back and let the experience keep going.
