    The ones where you never think of skipping a track, that just flow and work as a whole. The weird thing is they are not always my favourites. Some phenomenal albums are ruined by one or two downright shitty, simply misplaced, over exposed or difficult listen tracks.

    As examples I love Idles – Joy as an Act of Resistance but have to skip June. A lot of hip-hop albums have skits that are skipped once the novelty wears off. Deltron 3030 would be on the list if it wasn’t for that fact.

    Which ones do it for you? For me it has to be (in no particular order).

    1: Screaming Trees – Dust
    2: Car Seat Headrest – Teens of Denial
    3: Dr John and the Meters – In The Right Place
    4: Bob Dylan – Blood on the Tracks.
    5: Frazey Ford – Indian Ocean.
    6: Jimi Hendrix Experience – Are You Experienced.
    7: Parquet Courts – Wide Awake.
    8: Clutch – Blast Tyrant.
    9: The Gladiators – Trenchtown Mix Up.
    10: DJ Format – Music for the Mature B-Boy.

    Is not whether I have heard all of them but how much I don’t like others … 😆

    I can only listen to music for maximum 20 mins then they put me off regardless.

    Very overhyped slow hand whatever he is called … 🤢 🤮

    I think I can only recall one of his guitar solo … think it is the theme for F1 whatever.

    Also nirvana unplugged.

    👍 😀 not sure about their unplugged whatever …

    What with all these unplugged … I don’t get it.

    Fleetwood Mac is also very good.

    Phil Collins too …

    Binner, I got that Leftfield album believe it or not … 😅

    Massive Attack – Mezzanine

    Got that too … (don’t like them now coz their songs are depressing)

    Prodigy – fat of the land is good. Got that and few more but I cannot remember them all now.
