What are some albums that simply have to be listened to in one sitting from beginning to end, all at once?

Here are my entries:

Nine Inch Nails - The Downward Spiral
Porcupine Tree - In Absentia
Radiohead - Ok Computer
White Stripes - Get Behind Me, Satan
Black Lab - Your Body Above Me
The Early Birds - Zeno's Paradox
The Fratellis - Costello Music

Has done so much for me, probably the only album i would save out of a burning building. Also the only album i've bought without hearing first. Strange.
Use the Searchbar-The Searchbars
James "The Rev" Sullivan
May He Rest In Peace
Green Carnation - Light of Day, Day of Darkness

Look it up to get the humor.

These don't sound like very good ambitions when driving...Judas Priest makes people want to go 200 mph, and Realm of Chaos is now an album for ramming shit. You are dangerous, dangerous people.

Go see U2, then you can say you contributed money to Bono's giant Irish tower built out of the blood, tears, and the hopes of African children.

All Mastodon albums
They're concept albums, why not

Focus/Traced in Air by Cynic are both great albums which have a tied-up-loose ends kind of feel, also the Backening by Machine Head and Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-Nerd by Lynyrd Skynyrd.

I agree too...not jumping on the bandwagon or anything, but I think Tool's albums have a real flow to them that adds to the quality of the music. So Tool for sure.

Edit: In fact, I think most progressive rock albums have to be listened to from start to finish. Coheed and Cambria, Porcupine Tree, Tool, Rush, Opeth...all their albums need to be listened to all the way through to get the most out of the music.
