How Do You Listen To Music?
 
# 16 : Monday 19-9-2011 @ 00:19
 
 
I have a really small CD collection as I used to just steal CDs from my brother and listen to them. Then once I got an MP3 playing I copied his and other albums from my friends. An embarassingly large amount of the CDs I own now are musical soundtracks. I will usually buy the soundtrack once I've seen the show. I listen to quite a lot of songs on Youtube but I wouldn't buy them as I'll listen to them for a week and then get bored of those songs and go find fresh ones.

No offence to kaede, as she's doing nothing different to most people these days, but this type of attitude is going to really effect the quality if music being released. In hip-hop at least, so many new artists are releasing free music online to build a buzz. It means that instead of crafting a really well put together album, people are just throwing out disposable tracks to create a temporary buzz. I generally won't bother listening to anything free. I think if the artist doesn't think it's worth charging for it's not worth my time listening to it.

I used to download tonnes of music and end up never really listening to it. I gave up that and now I pay for everything I download but only buy stuff I feel I'll still want to listen to in 6 months time.

In my defence, I don't think I could name a single song released this half of the year. A song is generally at least a year old before I've heard of it, let alone before I listen to it. If it hasn't made the charts and isn't played regularly then I'm guaranteed not to have heard of it.
The one exception is an album of songs about Doctor Who. That alone says so much about me

I agree with both of ye,I only buy the actual CD,I love the notion that I have paid the creator of that music a small but deserved pittance for their work,not into artistic robbery per se,sorry.

My CD Collection is shocking (music wise)

I wouldn't listen to CD's now though, all uploaded on my laptop.

I'd only listen to music on my Iphone / Nano / Touch or Youtube really.

Only listen to the radio in the car now.

Cheeky!

I was such a massive Pop kid! My CD's would be all late 90's really! Think Billie Piper / Samantha Mumba!

Shame!

Though I may or may not have owned a spice girls cd at one point (that my straight brother paid half for)!

That a bit of a blinkered attitude. The music industry has changed hugely in the last decade. It changes all the time. The marketing aspect has changed a lot, recently. The industry has started to accept that much of the public think of music as a commodity that they are not always prepared t pay for - especially with youtube and P2P filesharing. Releasing a song free is a way of getting people to listen to it more than they would if they just had to go to youtube. It gets people talking about it too.

I used to work for a high end hifi dealer, so I was able to build a base sytem to work around at well below cost when they went bust. I've added to it over the years when I could afford to. So if I'm at home I use my separates system which is built around a Marantz CD-63mk2 KI, Marantz PM6003 Amp, Tannoy Mercury speakers (had B&W but fried them with dc) on Alphason stands, Sonic Link interconnects and Talk electronics bi-wire cables.

The sound quality is superb, so I love nothing more than relaxing with a coffee and listening to some of my favourite artists (The Police, Tori Amos, REM etc).
My musical tastes have varied greatly over the years and gone from Napalm Death to Neil Diamond? I never abandon a band but some don't age very well and get put to the back of the pile.

Music on the move is through my iPhone or if I'm in the car I have a 1000w subbed system with a Sony usb headunit and 32gb of music on a flash drive.

jeebus that sound system sounds ore complicated than a particle accelarator! Must sound great though.

I hate how people today have sacrificed sound quality for convenience or cheapness.

Listening to music on youtube or a crappy compressed mp3 is just not the same. Funny how we have better technology now yet most people listen to poorer sound quality

Yeah, people are compressing their music and strangling the life out of it.
I'd love to be able to afford an old Garrard 301 turntable, a Lejonklou phono stage and a stack of 200 gram vinyls.
