Classic Album Sundays is the world’s most popular album listening experience and allows the listener to hear music contextually, communally, uninterrupted, and in great sonic detail. At our worldwide listening sessions, music fans are able to immerse themselves into an album that has helped shape our culture and in some cases, our lives.

We relay the artist and album’s unique story and provide a musical context that gives the listening experience deeper meaning. We share the experience of hearing the album in its entirety, on vinyl, and on a world-class audiophile hi-fi so that fans can experience the music as close as possible to the artist’s original intention. Classic Album Sundays treats the album (and music in general) with the respect it deserves rather than as a free commodity or aural wallpaper. We remind people what they love about music.

For our July session we celebrate the 40th anniversary of seminal Kraftwerk album "Trans-Europe Express".

Trans-Europe Express was the singularly definitive moment of both Kraftwerk’s career and pop’s techno-trajectory. Moving away from the psychedelia-tinged kraut-rock constructions of their previous albums, the German quartet codified both their visual and aural identity with their 6th and arguably finest LP – which this year celebrates it’s 40th anniversary. The DNA of innumerable strands of modern music find their inception here, and the band’s winning formula would come to represent the new globalised attitude of the late twentieth-century and beyond.

Join us at one of our album listening sessions around the world to experience The Rolling Stones in a way you never have before.
