06:39 - deadone I don't even buy all 9s. Some of it I just don't see as something I'd listen to regularly often enough and other stuff I just can't get (*sniff* Skyclad)
06:36 - deadone I meant literal buy which in turn means I'm going to listen to it repeatedly at home where I only listen to CDs.
06:34 - Fearmeister No, I'm poor. by 'buy-threshold' ;, I mean that you have the album take up a more or less permanent place in your music collection
06:31 - deadone As for 10s, give me an album that keeps me enthralled from start to finish and I'll give it a 10.
06:24 - deadone Oh and do you buy CDs/LPs? I notice your collection is only 43 albums. Obviously it might not be up to date.
06:21 - deadone And sometimes I buy a song based on a casual listen or even a single song (e.g. Arsis A Celebration Of Guilt when it came out).
06:19 - deadone Fearmeister, I don't necessarily have a buy threshold. Occassionally I buy random CDs without ever having listened to the band (e.g. Warbringer or Switchblade). Doesn't happen as much these days due to lack of decent CD shop
