The original post

How many albums from a bands discography do you listen to before putting them in your list? Do you add them after one album or do you have to be a die hard fan who listened to their whole discography?
Personally, I used to put a lot of bands in my favorite bands list that I didn't really like and only listened to a few songs from, but now, I only add bands that I really like and listen to most albums in their discography.

Actually, it's the opposite for me. On MS I put only the bands I thoroughly enjoy, while on FB I throw in all bands that I've listened to an album by. I think that MS is strictly about metal, so I should only list stuff I enjoy a lot, whereas FB is more loose when it comes to music and likes in general (I've seen people who like artists they never heard).

If anything, I see that as a reason to give MS users a list of lots of bands I enjoy and to only list actual favourites on Facebook. I know what you mean though. Lots of my metalhead Facebook friends have hundreds of bands listed as favourites and as much as I try to narrow it down, I probably list too many bands as well.

I prefer to add a band without being a die hard fan, since it's that band's music, right?

I add a band once i start to like 50% or more of their material ... usually that means about a half of their discography

Its a general feeling for me, if I really like an album or an era of the band a lot, then I like them. If i like all there albums, I love them love them. And I guess if Im craving for more, I get more of their stuff. Simple really, lol.

I add them after they have consistently impressed me for a string of albums, or absolutely blow me away for about three, four releases or more.

Dont you automatically receive bands update when you add them to your favorites cuz I added some for that reason mainly... not because im a die hard fan Lol. I think theres a way to do it through the bands page aswell but idk I think Im too lazy for that so I just put few bands at the same time there and BANG ! lol If it would be only my all time favorites it would be shorter than that for sure lol

When I really like the band. Two cases: 1. I feel the lyrics, 2. The music is so fucking awesome I don't care about the lyrics. If one of those happens for many songs of this band, then it's a favourite instantly.

I usually choose a band to be my favorite if their albums constantly impress me and they dont sell out.

yeah i'm the same

i get the feeling that some people on here just listen to a band once or twice and decide they like them so add them to the list

Simple answer to this question is... Multiple albums that make me go "wow". Its quite rare really and I can probably only count on one had that this has happened.
