    without being on the computer, on the phone, while eating dinner, making love.

    Just sit there and listen to the record. (or Cd, tape, whatever)

    I have been tempted to post a thread "what do you do while listening to music?" but my last just flat out, lying on the bed listening album was the 20th anniversary reissue of "The Queen is Dead".

    Where do you draw the line at nothing else? If I go for a walk yet listen... It counts, right? Driving? Gym? Cooking? I'm an inveterate "doer". But I don't half-listen to music. I can't...

    First off, I'd just like to say that whenever I'm listening to music, other than sipping on a cup of coffee, i am doing nothing else. Far as a complete album, that would be Diamond Dogs just last week. I usually listen to album sides (vinyl or CD) or I program a few CD's..but i thought it was time to hear an album all the way through which isn't much of a common practice these days. Very enjoyable and a great album.

    none of that.
    drinking coffee, ok. whiskey, no. magazine, no
    a slow slow walk you might could sell me, a walk for exercise, no
    a full album experience.

    When you listen, are you sitting or standing?

    I have answers for every stance, but if lying down just to be at peace listening is too much activity.. . :)

    To be honest I usually end up dancing...

    My original answer stands in light of your edit. Maybe I'll make my own version of this thread one day (and risk looking hyperactive!)

    Probably, Abbey Road. I have recently listened to two Nicole Atkins records all the way through, too.

    Sincerely; I sometimes get into bed and leave this playing at low level to invoke crazy nightmares. It hasn't worked yet.

    It's been a while since I've done that, but in the past I always listened to new albums while lying on the couch, literally doing nothing. However, regardless if the music was good, after a while I got bored. Jeezus, those 60-minute long CD's they just went on and on and on. And then when you thought the thing had finished there was a hidden bonus track!

    Synthfreek Drum machines are not inherently evil.

    One of the best ambient albums of all time. After it loops and plays back from the beginning...that's when the nightmare should start.

    well for me that would simply be the last album I listened to all the way through:

    Return To Forever (1974)

    Where Have I Known You Before

    ...with state-of-the-art Bose headphones. Even when listening through the loudspeakers, music is an immersion experience ~ the only exception will be on a long road trip in the car, but then it would just be a stack of mix CDs anyway, since I do not take my prized CDs out of the house.

    I have twisted nightmares fairly often and I'm perversely fascinated and 'pleased' about it. I don't really need any encouragement from spooky music buy I'm always looking to go more twisted...

    Dancing...OK as long as you are listening
    Smoking? cigarettes yes
    Smoking other stuff. No lets keep it to music that's good enough to hold our attention by itself
    that's too many rules already

    Was just listening to this earlier today (original Reprise vinyl) and thinking about how good it sounded.

    Edit: I was drinking coffee at the time.

    No smoking the good stuff? That's crazy, it allows you to micro-focus on the music and shut out the world. In my opinion its the best way to seriously listen to an album
