Who said that the Album is dead?

Okay, so I'll be the first to admit that I rarely listen to whole albums nowadays. These past weeks however, I found myself obsessively doing exactly that. It started innocently enough, when I played the first track on the brilliant Where the Wild Things Are OST. Then I let the next track play as well. And the next one. And the next one. Before I knew it, I was loving it so much I truly could not skip a song. Not even parts of the song, like skipping the end when you feel it's getting too long! I know, I feel like it's 1999! Here, then, are some other records that I've been playing straight through, again and again, during the last month.
