|Yep the majority of ratings and listening time is 3-3.5 music but it’s worth it when you find an old or new gem. A bit like golf, I can play like total shit but it just takes one good shot or hole to sucker me back for more.|
|Sounds like you just dislike most things :(|
|"God damn you Blut aus Nord , how many times do I need to listen to your whole lenghty discography before I get it"|
You should stop doing this. Discography runs are not going to magically make you understand something. Stick to one or two albums if you feel like you are underappreciating or not getting an artist.
|maybe try exploring and becoming more familiar with different genres. i've eased my way into several different genres using stepping-stones that incorporated elements of said genre. like becoming familiar with noise rock helped me get into noise, etc. etc. |
|Find a band you definitely like. Play their music infinitely. |
|because you touch yourself at night|
|Don't overthink it, Dude, just do what makes you feel good|
|Wise√^ choice, poS'dddd|
|I have very few ratings compared to many users, despite having been here for so long. It's cos I really like to soak in an album and play it constantly for 1-2 months if they're good.|
I don't like getting through too much and then not making memories of that album in my head
|I used to do this a lot, eventually I got real unhappy with what I was listening to in general. Dont neglect your own 5s. Nowadays probably 75% of what I listen to are my own 4.5s/5s and I'm personally very happy with what I listen to overall.|
Not to say that's right for everyone. And the feeling you get when you discover something new that is amazing is simply unparalleled, and it's probably healthy to seek that in some capacity. But in my experience, if your quest to discover new music is becoming toxic or negative in any way, revisiting your favorites can be very rewarding.
What I'm trying to say is, you do you, but if you find yourself unhappy with what you're listening to, don't forget that revisiting stuff you love more often is always an option.
|I find more enjoyment in the thrill of discovering new stuff than in sticking to the safe zone, but I think it's important to stop and enjoy the oldies from time to time, as the hunt can get very exhausting when nothing good comes up in a while. Balance is key!|
|Thanks all, very interesting, insightful and helpful. And some very funny too|
