are you one of those people that just pic the hits out of a album and toss the rest?

    I do that now.

    Back when I was buying CD's every week, I'd just skip past the horse shit after the first listen.

    it depends on who the artist is. some seem to intentionally put out albums with one good song, and the rest are crap (often you can tell if the other songs appear to be the same or similar riffs with different lyrics). some put out albums where a third are good, and another third might be good if i listen to them a few times. i recall way, way back when the beatles were new. their albums were always 80% great. their singles had b sides which sometimes were better than the a side.

    Remember back in the day sometimes the flip side of a 45 would become the greater hit?

    The people I have blocked, I don't even interact with.

    With most of them, I just don't feel like reading their posts or scrolling past them.

    I'm one of those people that still buys the CD, because I like to hear an entire album tell the story that the artist wanted to tell. :cool:

    I think the Beatles had some 45s that both sides were hits.

    I used to listen to albums all the way through. Now I have everything in Itunes and I have playlists so I hardly ever listen to whole albums. But I don't really listen to much new music either way.
