    We started talking about this in the 1975 album thread.

    But what are some of the best/your favorite 3 song stretches from albums?

    Some ones mentioned were:
    "Paris", "Nana", "She Lays Down" from the aforementioned 1975 album
    "Tiny Vessels", "Transatlanticism", "Passenger Seat" from Transatlanticism
    "Degausser", "Limousine", "You Wont Know" from The Devil and God
