Who knows how important track orders are to different artists but part o the fun of playing an album once you’ve gotten to know it is looking forward to the next track, knowing how far along you are etc


#4

I regularly listen on shuffle because I’ve a terribly short attention span and tend to front load and only hear the first half of an album otherwise


#5

well there’s no wrong way to listen really :slight_smile:


#6

Shuffle should be used exclusively for playlists.

Nothing more annoying than starting an album and forgetting that you’re in shuffle mode and not hearing track two after track one.


#7

If an album is just constant Bangers then I might bung it on shuffle occasionally. Trying to think of albums I’ve done that with recently. Celebration rock and emotion, maybe. Don’t do it often though


#8

A truly great album to shuffle.


#9

#10

#11

i often shuffle my collection of a particular artist, or my whole collection. don’t see the point in shuffling albums really.

as a teenager when i’d listen to the same CDs over and over while doing my homework i’d often stick the CD on shuffle for a bit of a change and a bit of excitement - partly just cos of the novelty of having a shuffle button on the CD player. these days i get really annoyed when i find i’ve been accidentally listening to an album on shuffle.

Yeah, there’s no way I can listen to an album on shuffle, it doesn’t make sense to me. I guess it comes down to if you approach things as albums or collections of songs.

Taking things one step further, does anyone know of anyone who burns CDs in a random order from MP3s? My dad does this all the time and it drives me crazy. He even did it with my album.
