I bought a Sonos speaker the other day without checking out important things first (you can't connect with Bluetooth which is the main thing I wanted and therefore I can't use it with the sony musiccast cd/streaming/radio thing I bought last year) because they didn't have the portable bluetooth speaker than I wanted in stock. On the other I like it, the app is cool and allows you to add all sorts of third party streaming apps that the stupid sony app doesn't support.

Albums that have a different running order on different formats/editions - these annoy me.
are there many albums which had the original running changed when they were being prepared for vinyl?
i remember years ago trying to find out what the original running order for 'astral weeks' was supposed to be, because they rearranged it to fit equally on both sides, but never found out what the intended running order was.

The one that was bugging me the other day was Robert Wyatt's Dondestan but as it turns out the slight change of order on the cd (on the original cd, not the Revisited abomination) is fine too. I have it on tape and vinyl which are the same.
Other running order inconsistencies that have caused me distress over the years, off the top of my head:
  • Obscured By Clouds by Pink Floyd
  • Ummagumma by Pink Floyd
  • The Soft Bulletin by The Flaming Lips
  • Hermit of Mink Hollow by Todd Rundgren
  • Hounds of Love by Kate Bush
