Are You More of a album or song person ?

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
I'm more of a album person because anyone can write a decent song but I feel it takes true talent to make a good or even great album.

So does that mean you only listen to a whole album and don't skip songs when you listen?

That's what I do almost all the time. I try to find the musicality within every song. If I skip over a song I feel as if I am cheating the artist.

Album. generally don't skip or (shudder) shuffle

are members not allowed to put up polls unless their names are AdamCalifornia or DavidMahler?

Cheating the artist and myself. I don't really have that many albums, and I love all the songs on each one.

it depends, I usually just put my mp3 player on shuffle and let it go, though lately I've been listening to whole albums. I don't really think it improves the song(s) worthy any in the context of the album, I've been doing it because all the songs are fansatic.

This is probalry because I mainly listen to heavy/"screamo" metal-- but I do think that prog albums should be listned to as a whole and not single songs(in general) since out side of context the songs usually don't have the same power they do when they flow toghether.

I wish I could find albums like that. I think having music on a hard disc makes me more choosy as to what I let on it I don't want songs I don't like on it. I rarely put whole albums on it. and I listen in shuffle mode alot.

I almost always listen to whole albums. My iPod and iTunes are set up to shuffle by album. There are a few albums that have a song that I really hate, but that's only a few out of 2700 albums. I don't always copy a whole classical album to my iPod if I have multiple copies of one of the works on the album.

I've also recently downloaded some free tracks from iTunes and Amazon, so I don't have the whole album for those.

It's an option in iTunes and on the iPod, and one of many features of both that keep me using them.

Definitely an album person. If I hear a song that I like and want to put it on my iPod, the whole album goes on there.
