i almost always listen to albums from beginning to end. i basically never use shuffle or program, and usually don’t skip songs even, unless they suck. however, there arent very many songs that i skip. the only thing may be if i dont have enough time to finish the whole album than i will either just stop at whatever point i was at or will start later in the album.
i buy into the idea of an album being a whole piece of art, so its good to listen to the whole thing. saying ‘this is a great album’ is more of a compliment than saying ‘this is a great song’.
