There's something very particular to the band which invites it.  I think
that part of it is the depth of the catalog: with most artists you'd have to
pad your listening with a lot of bootlegs in order to not get bored.  And at
the same time, they don't really have big periods of total crap.  I mean,
they have some not-great albums, but those albums aren't bad due to
overproduction or ill-advised commercially calculated moves, or
self-conscious trend-hopping followed by attempts to "return to form".  The
"bad" ones tend to be bad in interestingly fucked-up ways.  It's... umm...
hard to explain.
