Some albums need to be listened to all at once and don't work as invividual MP3s. Radiohead's In Rainbows is one, another is Thom Yorke's Eraser. I was feeling sad that "listening to albums" was a thing in the past with electronic music but apparently with good storytelling, which a well-conceived album is, the pieces of the story are drawn to each other and you just can't break it apart. It wants to be told that way.
