I have this theory: either you’re a singles person or an album person. Sure, you can do both, but your heart tends to lie with one or the other. I’m a singles person. With one notable exception, I don’t listen to many albums straight through or front-to-back (depending on the era of my listening). I like compilations, a bit of randomness, and that frisson of joy that comes when two unrelated songs form a connection in my mind.
