Each album is a concept

If you shuffle by album, it will play whole albums in order, but not in sequence. Meaning, you could hear all of The Dark Side of the Moon, and then after that, all of The Division Bell.

I think with the Floyd, this might be the best way to go. That way you get the albums in their entirety, just not in chronological order.

I do something similar - I just listen to whichever album I feel like listening. Unless I'm actually doing a marathon, I don't hear them in chronological order.

Marathons are always fun. It's amazing hearing how much they evolved over the course of 27 years and each album really does have its own sound and style. Listening through their entire discography is just awesome.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to, so that when they turn their backs on you, you'll get the chance to put the knife in.

I might do a mini-marathon this evening while I'm doing laundry, I don't know. Normally when I listen to their albums, I listen to a group of them in sequence.

I'm doing one right now. I'm at The Great Gig in the Sky on their last album, and I'm rather bored... Too much of the same artist's music never is really good for me, and the last four albums happen to be among my least favourite, so it's a bit of a bother right now. Biggrin

When I'm done, I'm going to listen to Ummagumma again though.

I've been all over Meddle, Obscured By Clouds, Ummagumma, and Atom Heart Mother.
...our minds shot together.

With Floyd, I'm always in random order of listening. Last 5 I listened to were DSOTM, The Wall, Zabriskie, Animals, More...

As nice as that sounds, one of the admin here actually asked us from now on to report spam posts and post a quick blurb that they've been reported, but not to quote the posts, or interact with the spambots in anyway.
