Default Do you ever alter the track listing on albums you listen to?

Just curious.

I have a few times. Beggars Banquet, for example.

No I never do, I feel like the artist put the songs in that order for a reason, and, unless I've never heard the album before, whenever I listen to an album with the songs in a different order, it feels off and I don't enjoy it as much. Nothing wrong with you if you do, I just prefer to listen to my albums in the order they were meant to be played in. And plus if you're listening to a concept album, that can really ruin the experience, wouldn't it?

This.

I've had times where I've ripped a cd straight to my iPod and CDDB has got the wrong song names for the album, or the right names in the wrong order, and I've not noticed it. Then when I listen to the album on the iPod and hear a song I like, go to send a youtube video to a friend and I have the wrong name for it... and end up sending a completely different song to what I'd intended.

Luckily for me, this hasnt happened too often. Bit embarrassing when it does though lol

I've only ever altered the track listing if it came incorrect. Don't know why I would otherwise.

I used to listen to albums on shuffle, until I realized how annoying it was...now whenever I start listening to an album and I realize I left shuffle on, I always start it from the beginning, regardless which number it shuffled to.

If you're not exactly a fan of the order it's already in, I guess that could be a reason. Like if the album had a weak closer and there was one earlier on the album that you felt suited the end better you could switch them. Just a thought.

One thing I will do, if there is a skit or something, or the end of a song has talking on it - after the first listen I most likely end up skipping those parts. I just want the music, not some useless inane drivel

It doesn't make sense to me, if someone said "Do you like Sgt Peppers?" would I say "yeah, it's a masterpiece! But I have put A Day In The Life as track 2, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds track 4..."?

I kind of just take it as it is. I generally don't think I could make the album sound much better by rearranging it. Plus, if I can make it sound better by switching the order round then the producer of the record has failed.

Just for the record, Sgt Peppers sucks. I dunno why I used that as an example.

I'm sure it wouldn't be valid in a critical/conversational standpoint. It just boosts personal enjoyment in those cases where you could switch the songs around and it sound better, really. Like I said, I haven't done it all that much, just on those albums that I have big arrangement gripes with.

Eh. Everyone screws up every now and then.

I always thought it was funny how it's so critically acclaimed and yet everyone I know really hates it. I don't like it either even though I have one or two plays for it on my last.fm. I'm really feeling some irony here. >.>
