Right now I', working on collecting the followings total discography
Blind Guardian
Anaal Nathrakh
Emperor
Borknagar
Therion
Iced Earth
Kamelot
Epica

For some (mostly my absolute favorites) I want to get ALL their releases and see how they progressed over the years (Blind Guardian is, IMO, a perfect example of this), however, some bands (Iced Earth's SOmething WIcked pt. 1 & 2) have released some real stinkers.

This is what I do as well. For instance, I got the whole Amon Amarth discography, even The Crusher, which sucks.

Since I most of the time find myself liking the whole discography I rarely have a problem wanting to get the whole of it, and for me that includes the studio albums, the demos and the eps, and maybe also a single, if the song on it doesn't appear in any other physical copy. And since I recently began to collect vinyl, I just trying to get all the different vinyls there is of the bands I enjoy listening to.
But it is indeed very hard when you like many hundred bands and your income isn't that big, so sometimes you have to choose between which albums you're gonna buy :/ But for my favourite band I'm going to buy all of their stuff they have: cds, vinyls, cassettes, t-shirts and all other kind of stuff they will release/sell ^^

Often though I don't care about compilations, best of, singles and most cloths(except for tees and zippers/hoodies), because I don't really care about that stuff. Re-issues can be of some worth, depending on the situation, what it has to offer(if there is bonus songs) or if it is a limited one. I have to admit I love limited edition of things.

I think I covered all of the different things.

For about a week I had every Motorhead album. Then the new one came out.

I've never completed a discography (actually, that's a lie, I just collected Schaliach's entire one-album discography!), and I never really try to. That said, in some cases I've accidentally managed to acquire the majority of a band's discography and been tempted to finish the collection just for the sake of it.

The best example is Anathema. I first bought WHBWH in 2010 as a somewhat blind buy and absolutely loved it. Then later on, Peaceville were having a sale, so I bought The Silent Enigma and Eternity since I didn't know if I'd ever find them that cheaply again (I would; I was a bit naive though). I got Weather Systems when it came out because I really liked it. And recently, I found Judgement/AFDTE/A Natural Disaster all for £10, and I couldn't say no to that offer, especially for such excellent albums. So, without really trying, I've got 7 out of Anathema's 9 full-lengths and I almost want to get Serenades/Alternative 4 just to complete the set.

Not at all, I try to buy albums that won't collect dust. I'm very picky about what I buy, partly because I'm so broke.

yeah i'm a bit like that now, i'm going to try and only collect vinyl that i think is very special to me. Not enough cash to just collect randomly to make up a discography

If a band has one naff album in between a load of great ones, I tend to pick it up just to complete the collection. But if a band dies off musically (for instance I can't stand Metallica after Justice) then I just leave it at that.

I used to be anal until Megdeth released Risk.

I just couldn't bare having that piece of shit in my collection so I got rid of it.

Now I don't care for whole discographies and only get albums if I like them (thank the heavens for Youtube).

Mainly I have every album from the bands that I started listening metal to simply because I could listen to the same band for months back then, so I was interested in everything I could find from a band I liked no matter how different their stuff was. not gonna state them here though since I'm kinda ashamed of those lol.

Well, I own all the full lengths! Actually, I've searched for the demo and found a guy who wasn't willing to sell it...

Don't even get me started.

I hear 1 song that I like, and I immediately have to get all the albums of that band. It's like the best form of OCD.

When i started collecting music, if i heard a good album, i would eventually buy the rest of the discography. Nowadays i follow just a few bands more attentively, and others (most of them) not so much. As for newcomers, the internet gave me possibilty to listen to the band's discography before buying. If i really really like it i buy it. If not, there are a lot of bands out there who deserve attention. I also like to collect old stuff that i couldn't buy in my youth.

Not very anal at all, as I can only get so much music, and I go for variety before going for repeats of an artist.

I'm in many ways a completist, so I do like to collect complete discographies of bands I like. I've been trying to cut back though.

Yeah, I'm quite anal.

I'm anal with Pink Floyd since I've pre-ordered their upcoming album withouth listening to a thing, but this only shows my total faith in the band

Eh, I usually only care about studio albums and, on occassion, EPs as well if they consist of wholly new, unreleased material (In Flames' Subterranean, for instance). I don't really like singles, live albums, EPs with one original cut and five other throwaway tracks, cover albums and so on and so forth (although there are some exceptions, of course). Bonus tracks can get irritating once in a while but they can also be beneficial if they are good original pieces recorded during their respective album's sessions.
