As far as I'm concerned, people who don't ever listen to albums are music lightweights.
By "albums", I don't mean actual vinyl records. I couldn't care less which configuration or delivery method you chose. I mean a specific group of songs in a certain order.
As it is, I don't really care how you listen period. You can listen to the same song all day long if it makes you happy.
But as a Parent Hood, I'm responsible for teaching my kids the important facts of life. As you might suspect, the art of music is in the upper echelon of importance around here. And in that respect, my first lesson about music is this: If you really want to appreciate the art, you need to dedicate part of your listening time to albums.
