    I can't believe so many people have so many albums listed. You're telling me that you are in total love with virtually every song on those albums. I'm kinda thinking this is going the way of those greatest albums things where there's several fantastic songs and the album is remembered that way but all in all, there were plenty of just so so songs on them also.
    Yes I do... I listen to all songs on these albums front to back and do not skip unless it's a skit.

      You don't understand. Most live albums are compilation albums dude. A mixture of songs from previous albums. DOES NOT COUNT.

        I'll give Bob Marley this. When ever I'm feeling down in the dumps, his Don't Worry song really does make me feel as if everything gonna be alright. I can see clearly now is good too but not nearly as good as Bob's song.

            I only bought albums from about middle school until high school. For a while I didn't buy any music, and then the internet emerged. I've become a fan of a lot of artist over a wide range of music, but to answer the question, I'm only sticking to entire albums that I had.

            A Tribe Called Quest- Midnight Marauders
            Ice Cube- Death Certificate
            Outkast- Aquemini
            De La Soul- Buhloone Mindstate
            Pharcyde- Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde

            De La Soul just had a promotion where they gave away their entire catalog for free! It was like Christmas in February!

              Killing joke - pandemonium

              That's just off the top of my head.
              Electric Relaxation is on the Midnight Marauders album.

                Fyi, that song would be titled "Three Little Birds".

                    Revolver

                    Aja - Steely Dan - Katy lied

                    Warren Zevon - Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy - Sentimental Hygiene- Transverse City (this is a great record that has songs that should be dated about computers and networking that are still valid to this day!) I have been in a year long Warren Zevon listening stretch.

                    Eagles Hotel California

                    Stones Exile on Main St.

                    Moody Blues Days of Future Past

                    Van Morrison Moondance

                    Captain Beefheart Trout Mask Replica

                    Billy Joel The Stranger

                    Peter Gabriel So

                    John Hiatt Slow Turning

                    Beach Boys Pet sounds

                    Linda Ronstat Simple Dreams

                    Talking heads Remain in light

                    Jean Michael Jarre Oxygene

                    Louis Armstrong Hot 5's and 7's

                    Bing Crosby, Bing with a Beat (very underrated album)

                    Don Henley Boys of summer

                    John Coltrane - Giant Steps, Love Supreme

                    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue

                    Boston Boston

                    AC/DC Powerage

                    Wendy Carlos Switched on Bach

                    Vangelis - Antartica, Blade Runner

                    Leon Redbone - On the Track, Champagne Charlie, Up a Lazy River

                    Randy Newman - Sail Away, 12 songs

                    Genesis Genesis

                    Phil Collins - No Jacket required.

                    I would list more Classical for Cut but that would take too long. The above are all albums I can put on loops and listen to over and over again.

                          I forgot Public Enemy, Fear of a Black Planet.

                          Really thinking about it, my brothers and my friends and I, we didn't always listen to entire albums. We were making mixed tapes back then. Which is pretty much like listening to itunes on shuffle. But we had to actually create the playlist, which was kind of a pain in the ass.

                                I guess to do it right you would have to say top 5 rock/pop, top 5 jazz etc, how can you compare Bob Marley to Miles Davis? Both giants. The fact i forgot any reggea just shows that even someone who trys to give all genres a spot misses the boat.

                                What is amazing is just how much epic music has been created.
