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
Some cool albums, but How can you give this many albums enough time to come to any realistic opinion on them? That's a shitload of tunes there I just don't get it.
I work at a law firm, but there's only me there at the office, everybody else works at my bosses house (poor bastards), so I have a lot of time to listen to music on pandora, and last.fm without distractions.
200+ albums in a year is pretty standard for anyone who digs around enough for new music. Some lists here exceed the 300 mark (not saying this list is inherently inferior).
Well thanks. This list though is not in any kind of order, I'm just about done with what I believe are the top albums of the year, so this is completely different then what the finished one will look like.
