It's a good thing I only went through my iPod when doing the list, Aqualung was a favourite of mine growing up. 8)

Not so fast. I have to laugh because my first live concert ever was Jethro Tull in 1973-74 (don't do the math) in Hollywood, Florida. Problem is I don't remember it cos I got "sick", and my friends dumped me into the backseat of the car. Heard it was a good show, though.
shows? 90 so far...

funnily enough I have got Aqualung somewhere.. and something else of theirs too...

but Crest of Knave is different - don't ask me why...

although... it could be associated memories I guess...

lived with a guy on his his narrowboat for about four years, we used to lie on the roof in summer and listen to the stereo ... he was the one who introduced me to that album...

and in fact the two Tangerine Dream albums as well... I can't listen to either Tangram or Exit without listening to the other one as well. He had them on tape and the tape player was one that automatically plays the other side... I tend to think of those two albums as one...

can't just be the memories though... ahh well...

I'm a bit sad to admit I am not as good on the whole album thing as I used to be. Ideally I listen to full albums, but nowadays it is tempting to just go to your favourite tracks, since it is so much easier now than in the days of the old LP.
Some classics for me are:

Ocean rain - Echo & the Bunnymen
The crossing - Big Country
Meat is murder - the Smiths
This is the sea - the Waterboys

Frank Turner: England Keep My Bones and Love Ire and Song

The last album before these I loved the whole way through was The Remote Part by Idlewild, although 100 Broken Windows was pretty good as well.

I'm surprised no one has said _London Calling_! Epic album.

Besides FT albums... I also like all the Nirvana albums all the way through, and most Bad Religion albums up through _The Process of Belief_. I realize I'm in the minority these days for actually listening to entire albums MOST of the time. I don't know; it's just how I grew up, and if a band can't put out an album with more than a few songs, I usually don't give them much of my time in the future.

I'm sure there's more, but for once I'm going to just wrap it up!
Brevity is not my forte.

I'll definitely agree with anyone who said The Beatles White Album; there was a point after my mom got it on CD for Christmas that I'd heard it all the way through so many times that my mom was listening to it on headphones and I was singing along (without being able to hear it) from 'Dear Prudence' through to the end of 'The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill'. It's almost a compulsion--once I start playing the album, I have to listen to it all the way through or I feel itchy and dissatisfied.

Another one like that for me is Silverchair's Diorama. There are one or two songs that I am not that keen on on the album objectively, but when I've tried to skip past them it just annoys me. The album is also amazing just on its own, if you haven't heard it, I totally recommend it to everyone and anyone all the time.

Foo Fighters The Colour and The Shape is also great all the way through, in my opinion at least. Especially that run at the end with 'February Stars', 'Everlong', and then 'Walking After You'.

Hot Hot Heat's Elevator is kind of designed to be listened to all of the way through, with the bits in between the songs.

I'm sure there are others, but I can't think right now. Like other people have mentioned, though, I tend to listen to albums/songs/bands to the exclusion of everything else for about a month at a time and then move on.
