If I think an artist is arranging tracks in a specific order then I will
always want to at least try that order. Apart from anything else this
usually means they are telling a story with the music, and it would be
daft to 'read' the end before the beginning.

Sadly, I think too many times an album is really just a collection of
random songs, and it doesn't matter at all what order you hear them in
- or even if you only hear one or two. So people get used to that.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
