Any albums where you love EVERY song

post #1 of 306
Thread Starter 
apologies if this has been done before, i find it difficult to use the search effectively!

i only have one album ive ever heard where i love every song [4 or 5 stars for every song]

many i term 'good' seem to have 2 to 4 poor songs [2 stars] and even more that just have most songs that rate as ok [3 stars]
and then theres the ones where you only like the main singles of!
for me anyway it seems so rare to find an amazing album, as i said, ive only found one!

EDT
whoops, forgot to mention what album

nightwish - oceanborn

this has happened for several albums, where at one point or another each song on the album has been my favorite song from the album. This is a big indicator for when an album is truly great.


Bob Dylan- Blood On the Tracks
These Arms Are Snakes- Oxeneers or the Lion Sleeps When its Antelope Go Home and Easter
Parts and Labor- Receivers and Mapmakers
Isolee- We Are Monster
Blank Dogs- On Two Sides

Good question. There are very few albums where every song is good

Immortal - Sons Of Northern Darkness
Immortal - At The Heart Of Winter
Negura Bunget - Om
Darkwoods My Betrothed - Witch-hunts


Cant think of anything else. In other albums there are always 2 or 3 songs which I do not care about.

For me, an album on which every song is great must be greater than the sum of its parts. Dark Side of the Moon, for example, is a great album, and every song is great. However, taken out of context of the full album, would each song be as great individually? I think not. Chris Thile's "Not all who wander are lost", Therion's "Gothic Kabbalah" and Finntroll's "Ur Jordens Djup" are other prime examples for me.

One album that almost manages to be full of 5-star singles regardless of being set within the context of the other songs on the album is Korpiklaani's "Tervaskanto". The only song I would give 3 stars is the first one, Let's Drink. Every other song on that album is solid gold by itself.

im glad others agree, was worried i was just really picky!
as i said, ive only found one ever,

i do like albums which have a distinct 'theme' or 'story' where each one means more with the ones around it

I have had a couple:

The Cure -Disintegration
The Smashing Pumpkins - Adore
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
R.E.M - New Adventures in Hi-Fi
Marcy Playground - Self-titled

Those are a few off of the top of my head.

Andrew Bird - The Mysterious Production of Eggs - Love every track, but tend to prefer listening to it as an album
Andrew Bird - Soldier On - Love every track
Andrew Bird's Bowl of Fire - The Swimming Hour - Love every track
Camille - Le fil - Love every track (well to be honest, I can't say I love some of the short 30 second interludes, but they are excellent, I just have trouble enjoying a track that is 30 seconds), it's even better as an album)
Ludo - Broken Bride - My only album by them that I have, every track is absolutely excellent
The Mountain Goats - Heretic Pride - Love every track
The Mountain Goats - The Sunset Tree - Love every track and even better as an album
