On the blog today, ashenfacedsupremo noted of Van Morrison's Astral Weeks that In vinyl times the first side was entitled In The Beginning and the second side Afterwards and there is a feeling of a journey through life and even of death and re-birth.
Because this week's Album of the Week was a story and needed to be listened to in order, it had to have a Please Play in Order label.
Life in the digital age, I guess. Question is, does song order matter on an album anymore (indeed, did it ever honestly in most cases)? Do any of us play album tracks in order, or do we just listen to whatever order our media player chooses?
