i personally take each album as its own entity. couldn't care less who the band is or what they've done in the past. a lot of times i only own 1 or 2 albums from a band's discograpghy because i don't like some of their other releases. i don't feel i have to like every album a band creates.
Same. A lot of metal fans are collectors. I've never had that "completest" quotient in my music collecting-every album; bootlegs, unreleased tracks, live tracks, DVDs, paraphernalia. Now, I may own all or must of a bands discography if I think their entire discography is essential, but I just want music I'll revisit time and time again. I tend to find the albums I want and don't feel compelled to own complete biographies just for the sake of owning them. But, I think it' kind of cool to collect all the odds and ends for fans that are true collecors . I get it intellectually, but I'd just rather be more judicious with where I put my music dollars.
I stopped collecting music because I had my collection stolen in high school. Was a big reason I decided to just stick with streaming.
