Getting Into A New Genre: The Hawks Method

Been thinking of getting into a new genre but don't know where to begin? Here is a tried and true method that makes it easy for anyone to get into any genre!
1La Dispute
Somewhere at the Bottom of the River...


Pick the genre: A pretty simple step. Choose a genre you have been wanting to get into.
2The Weeknd
House Of Balloons


Make a list (1): Make a list letting the site know you have chosen to expand your musical horizons and make yourself into a superior being. List the few albums you've heard from the genre and ask for recs.
3The Antlers
Hospice


Dowload: Download everything. Yes, everything. I don't care if there's over 100 albums there! YOU'RE GETTING THEM ALL YOU UNDERSTAND ME? Good, moving on
4The Notorious B.I.G.
Ready To Die


Rate: Within the space of 1 week you must have all those albums rated (better get listening). To simplify the task for you we have designed a rating chart for you to use as a guide: 5%=5, 20%=4.5, 50%=4, 20%=3.5, 5%=3 to 1
5Touche Amore
Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me


Make a list (2): Make a list clearly stating your favorite album of said genre (it should be respected enough to be seen as a good choice but underground enough to make it look like you really know your shit) and mentionning a few others you've been hopelessly in love with this past week. Ask for more recs, you must know this genre better than it knows itself.
6Botch
We Are The Romans


Download some more: Download the last few recs from your last list (if you properly whored out your first one there shouldn't be too many here). Spend the next week listening to these and your original downloads
7Cradle Of Filth
Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder


Decisions: Once you have gotten this far, your trek is complete. You may now choose between re-starting from step 1 with a totally new genre however we recommend you take a break from all this experimenting for a bit and make your big return as the harbinger of all things metal with your tried and true classic List=Digs, proclaiming your triumphant return to the trv love of your life...for now
