Every couple of years, I hear an album that slowly but surely drags me in like a drug. As I progress song by song through the album, I find that I enjoy each song so much that I get impatient for it to finish so I can hear the next one.
I bought "The Hush" by Texas a couple of years back, and am now just listening to it, and what a gem it is.
What album does it for you?
Abbey Road, every time.
Other than that, I'm one of those "one-song" listeners. I'll listen to the one or two tracks I really like over and over, and never (or rarely) bother with the rest of the album. I've probably missed out on a lot of great stuff, but I just can't help it.
good topic, completly know what you are talking about.
Tway brought up the Beatles, but for me its the white album. Bealtles: Beatles is so masterpiece.
others: Dark Side, Zooropa, Harvest Moon, Meridian, and the first album I ever bought with my own money...... Appetite for Distruction
The newest one to do that to me would be: The Decemberists.
