Like my ipod's stuck on replay part 1

I don't talk about music much but I feel like ignoring it on a style blog is stupid. Music can influence one's style choices. There are very few albums I can listen to the entire thing over and over again. Listening to entire albums is like talking to a friend, you've heard the story hundreds of time but every time its still exciting. Axis Bold as love - Jimi Hendrix experience
Out of the two albums of Hendrix I have this is my favorite. The first time I heard Little Wing on vinyl I almost cried; the beginning sounds like falling stars. All of the tracks are good. The album proves that not only is Hendrix a sublime guitar singer, he has a sultry voice. I played "Little Wing" and he said are you sure you didn't write this.
Beatles 1962-1966 - The Beatles
Technically this could be cheating since its a compilation. Side 3 is pure musical euphoria! I can listen to side 3 on repeat for days on end (my family can attest to this). It contains my favorite Beatles song Norwegian Wood. It also has "I wanna hold your hand" and "help"
The best of Carly Simon - Carly Simon
This is a greatest hits album. This was one of my first records my parents got me it because I really loved You're so Vain. I really love "The Right Thing to do" .
Let;s get it on
This is just great music. I generally just love Motown. It is just a feel good album. The album is very seductive. Although, listening to lets get it on with a guy friend can be weird.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars - David Bowie
It tells a story which is always a plus for me. I remember winning my copy for 65 cents on eBay. It has great tracks like Starman, Ziggy Stardust, Suffragette City, and my all time favorite Moonage Daydream. I also like to say,"wham bam thank you ma'am".

What albums can you listen to on repeat?

That Beatles comp or maybe the later 60's one (there are two) is the first tape I ever bought. :)

Love Bowie, of course.

Some albums I can play over and over and over again:

Tori Amos - Boys For Pele
Stone Roses - self-titled
Morrissey - Ringleader Of The Tormentors
