In courtesy of @Rudi replying to my suggestion in the related gapless playback announcement from seven months ago I’ll make a new thread with the same question. :wink: As all suffering desktop users know, gapless playback is neither working in the desktop app nor in the web player yet while most mobile users are already having gapless fun - scandal!  🕸️

So what will be the first album you will listen to when gapless playback is finally working in your app? Mobile users are tolerated to post their first album as well that they have listened to when gapless playback became available on their mobile device. :innocent: Also using MP3 streaming instead of HiFi is allowed, even if this may take longer to become available for your favorite album than HiFi gapless playback on desktop.

I’ll probably start with Richard Wagner’s complete opera cycle “Der Ring des Nibelungen”, all four operas in a row, more than 14 hours of sweet G_A_P_L_E_S_S HiFi lossless FLAC music. I’m undecided yet which performance and/or conductor to choose - Sir Georg Solti (famous first stereo release in the late 50s), Daniel Barenboim (live recording from the Bayreuth Festspielhaus in the 90s), hmm… :thinking:

Good day.

I would listen Refuzion - Voyage on my Deezer Premiere gapless.

Everytime I feel lost in my life, everytime I feel like there is no tomorrow, I enjoy this finest release of my favourite artist #1 on Deezer 2020 and probably 2021 as well. He set me free and on my musical Journey this year 2020 and it was my greatest salvation after not so good 2019. Thanks for him.

He’s Refuzion, and he’s my reason to live :pray:

The Things You Hated was freeing, it exactly tells a story of my life. In 2019 I needed to RUN.

Run to meet the sun after bad relationship which turned into room mate situation, and was full of drama, and reasons to leave. But I was indeed fooled for his love. Now out from demons.

Thank you so much for sharing your valuable opinion about gapless musical journey.

I will check some of these tracks out you mentioned in your post.

I don’t even know the genre, seems jazz or classical for me?

Right, it’s classical music, a very long opera cycle by a German composer. But it is a good example of how gapless playback is indeed necessary to follow the flow of the music, or else it gets destroyed immediately, e.g. between the first and second track of the Rheingold introduction which illustrates the river Rhine and the hidden treasure in it.

Great, great suggestions @bluezzbastardzz 

Once we finishing developing gapless on our desktop app, I want to listen to these two:

Good picks @Rudi and Im pretty sure that I will also listen to The Wall in gapless. Pink Floyd really needs to be heard as gapless.. And some live-albums from different bands.

By the way, do you have any timeframe for when the gapless will be added to the desktop client?

Thanks, buddy! @Samppa I agree, gapless is essential for them and all live albums to be fair.

We haven't been given an estimate yet but it's on the final bits of development. I hope to have more news in January :smiley:

I also know that the desktop app will get serious improvements in 2021, not just gapless. So I can't wait to share these things here :sunglasses:

My wish is for connectivity to be improved next year. I'm streaming via Chromecast built in and I'd love to listen to this album without gaps.

It's a compilation from heaven @DrEvil isn't it?

It's already in HiFi so on mobile it's completely gapless isn't it? :relaxed:

How about Chord V - Clockartz 😜🥰 

The classic Moody Blues albums - intended to be heard as a seamless flow of one song into another.

Haha. Aren’t you as well waiting when gates will open and we can connect & dance? :D

This hard dance music is my life, glad to see other fans of it here!

I think it was only when Mike Pinder left the Moodies (half way through the Octave sessions) that everyone realised how central he had been to their aesthetic.

@hpguru  How did you insert the song like that? Visible and playable from within your forum post?

OK, finally sussed it after a few false starts. Go to album page, click [...] menu and select share.

On the share page, click the embed [<->] button to the right of [Copy].

You just need step 1: copy the URL containing an album code from the box (this is different from the social media sharing URL, which doesn’t seem to work in Community.

Go back to your community post/comment, select the [...] menu there, and paste the album URL into the box. Then click add.

A placeholder will appear, but it won’t look right and the play button won’t work until you’ve pressed [Save].
