Perpetual Albums

Some albums are so good you just keep them on repeat for days / weeks - or at least I do. They are not very common, and they are probably quite personal. That said, here are some that I’ve encountered. The year is when I was listening to it - not necessarily the release year. OK - I’ve added to this list beyond the real ‘superloopers’ (Dummy was the most overplayed) - some of these you’d only wear out part of the CD. In most cases other albums by the same artist do not disappoint.
