I don't have an issue with single-song listening. It's how the industry started and it's continuing that way with downloadable content. It's just my preference to listen to an entire album. I was brought up with Classical music always playing, so listening to extended works was never a problem and it's just how I listen to music.
With that said, my attention span is limited. Without variation in tone or theme, it's hard te get much beyond half an hour of the same band. If there is enough variation, I can listen to a band all day.
