So Adele’s outed as a secret Afterworder, raging on the great unwashed on Spotify shuffling her album, possibly even putting the best tracks on a playlist called ‘sad bangers’. This I think is the most Afterwordy article yet and the BTL comments are split between ‘chill out, I’ll do what I want’ to Screamadelica/OK Computer/Hounds of Love MUST be listened as sequenced.
My favourite comment is about being able to skip the tracks you don’t like. How on earth can we appreciate the gems (Love Spreads for example) without suffering through well quite a bit of the album.
Skippers or sequence fascists? Playlist ripper?
