Ain't it great when you get some brilliant tunes in a row on an album? I know it's not infrequent but sometimes I'm struck by the quality of a little run of tracks. Here's a set which I only recently realised is such a great run at the end of the Tracy Chapman album. 10 minutes of beautiful tunes, no need to press a button on the ipod. Go.

Track 9 For My Lover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMSFig8VgXE

Track 10 If Not Now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s9SpX64g84U

Track 11 For You: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cxi65iPLVx0

Hit me with your 3 tracks in a row.

    11 Great songs in a row : The Stone Roses - The Stone Roses.
    There isn't a bad track on that album.
  • ..yeh but that wasn't the question. Otherwise I would have asked whats the bestest ever albums in the world ever.

    Anyway, Don't Stop and Elizabeth my Dear aren't great.

    What you on about? Where did I mention an otherwise censored album!? I'm just asking for 3 great tunes in a row! It's not hard. It's just a question. Like I said, otherwise I would have just asked for a great album.

    Yeh I have listened to Astral Weeks. I'd say Sweet Thing, Cyprus Avenue and The Way Young Lovers Do would be a pretty good 3 in a row.

    Now you try :roll:
  • Ok:

    1. Public Enemy - Fight the power
    2. Bob Dylan - All along the Watchtower
    3. Russ Conway - Side Saddle

    Ffs. Are you joking? :shock:

    Three tracks. In a row. From the same album. Not from some mixtape you made for your first girlfriend.

    Read the first post again though... it's pretty obvious really, isn't it. Be honest. Anyway, we're off and running now.

    Album released in 1985 or so, still sounds fresh. How The Alarm slipped under the radar I'll never know.
