You need to really like a band to go straight through an album, and the crowd does too.
If you go to a show with an audience that's fully on board with the band and you're singing along, cheering, interacting, etc. then it would be pretty great. See: the show i saw yesterday. Of course concept albums lend themselves well to being played straight through too.
But if you don't like the band and have to sit through deep cuts of their album you're probably not gonna have much fun.
I listen to music by album 99% of the time. I'll be all "I'm in the mood for some Gorillaz", so on goes Demon Days. Album finishes, I'll throw on Blood Sugar Sex Magic, when that's played through I'll press play on Music for the Jilted Generation.
S'just how I do.
Etymology fun, the technical name for white blood cells is phagocyte. Cyte means cell, phage comes from the greek 'phagein' meaning 'to devour'. I argue it is probably the most badass name for a cell type that exists.
So I gave Rodina a whirl and while there's a lot of great potential here but I'm not really digging on the actual exploration, mostly because going from point to point gets a little old when all you tend to find are comm logs. Burning through space for a while just gets kinda monotonous as a result since the thrill of discovery ends up being "oh boy, another comm log." I'm kinda reminded of Mass Effect 1's galaxy wide scavenger hunt for random stuff so that could either be a great thing or not depending on what you thought of all that.
