    Favorite CD Connecting Songs

    This may be a dying thread since cd's don't exist anymore. Anyways, what were two or more songs on a cd that when played in their correct order are just awesome for you? One of my favorite pairings is on the System of a Down cd "Toxicity" when Deer Dance, track 3, leads into Jet Pilot, track 4. Just awesome imo. Track 1, innervision, is a great song too, but the transition from Deer Dance to Jet Pilot does it for me every time. The whole cd is just great music though.

    Any of you guys have any other favorite pairings?

    The entire "Dark Side of the Moon" album by Pink Floyd.

    I never realized the songs were designed to "blend" together until I put the CD in once with "random" set on the stereo. It sounded all funky with songs cutting off abruptly and such.

    I never paid attention until then, but the album starts with a heartbeat and ends with a heartbeat. It's kinda like the entire album is a dream between heartbeats or something.

    Was wondering how long it was going to take for someone to mention the dark side. Not long apparently.

    More specific though, what songs on the album really do it for you when they come together?

    With no long, quiet spaces between songs, it was really difficult to drop the needle precisely if you wanted to listen to a specific song off of DSoTM on LP.

    The album "Obsolete" by Fear Factory was great as a complete full run-on album. Each song told a part of a story in ordr, plus the band just kicks ass.
    Also, from the band Nile, when "Ramses Bringer of War" ends and "Die Rache Krieg Lied Der Assyriche" is a pretty good run-on, and would be topped off quite well if "Opening of the Mouth" were on that album too.

    +1.

    Also, the entire Beatles' "Love" album (all original Beatles recordings remixed by their producer and his son. Awesome.)

    On Muse's "Absolution", Interlude into Hysteria. Siiiick.

    Good songs are nice, but great transitions give me goosebumps.

    There were also albums out there that were designed to finish and start well on each side of a cassette - sort of like each was a chapter.

    If I remember correctly, wasn't November Rain on the start of side B of Use Your Illusion I?

    In recent years I'd say that Fischerspooner's #1 flowed seamlessly.

    Going back a tad, but the Beastie Boys Check Your Head and Ill Communication also worked a treat as a whole.

    My nod goes to Alan Parsons Project: I, Robot, Eye in the Sky, & Ammonia Avenue. Three separate and individual concept albums that stand well individually but when played sequentially take the listener on a surreal journey of futuristic hope and decay. juxtaposed on light and melodious music.

    As a footnote: Alan Parsons is brainchild engineer behind DSotM.

    Can we get a "Thank you Mr. Parsons"?
