    As others have said, during my school days, album-buying would pretty much be restricted to those bought from birthday or Christmas money - so they got played endlessly.

    Tangerine Dream - Phaedra
    Tangerine Dream - Rubycon



    I probably listened to nothing other than those two TD albums for the best part of a year...

    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here



    I played those so much back then that I can hardly bare to listen to them now

    Peter Baumann - Trans Harmonic Nights



    Was completely obsessed by this when it came out. My mum and dad got driven to distraction by me playing it endlessly for days on end.

    Its also where every single penny I earned went, either records, gigs or my Afghan coat!
    Anyway, in those days I would play albums constantly when I bought them, time after time after time, whilst memorising the lyrics and pouring over the album covers.
    These days I may only play some albums once, which is ridiculous really but there you go.
    I'm pretty sure this is representative, hard to be totally certain really, but these are the 5 albums I think I have played more than any others in my life - what are yours?

    (in no particular order, but I know for sure that I've played DSOTM more than anything else)

    Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
    Black Sabbath - Vol. 4
    Genesis - The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway
    Led Zeppelin - IV
    Supertramp - Crime of the Century








    near misses;
    ELP - Brain Salad Surgery and S/T
    Alice Cooper - Killer
    Deep Purple - Made in Japan
    Bowie - Aladdin Sane
    Fairport - Leige & Leif
    Hendrix - Ladyland
    J.J. Cale - 5
    Crimson - Court
    Cohen - Songs of
    May Blitz - S/T
    Floyd - Meddle
    Stones - Sticky Fingers
    U. Heep - Salisbury
    Yes - Fragile
    Great start-id struggle to top that!
