How Do You Listen To Music?

No, they are just really well balanced and the sound quality is just earth shattering.
You bought it like this and then bought the tone arm and you had to build it into a plinth yourself.

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 most, recently. The industry has started to accept that much of the public think of music as a free commodity now - 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.

Are you speaking as a fan or a budding artist who releases free music to build a buzz!

It depends how it's done. Releasing on or two songs for promotional purposes in advance of an album release is a good tool - Kanye West did this to great effect in the build up to his last album, releasing left over tracks or unfinished versions of songs every week for free. But unless they are on an album release they are quickly forgotten.

Others just release free albums or mixtapes online to get some temporary exposure but you never get the same attention and craft as a real album release. I'd rather they work on an album for a year and put their heart and soul into it, and be prepared to work it for the next year, rather than throw something catchy out to get some YouTube hits.

If it's something that will stand the test of time people will pay for it. Heck, if a free release is any good, it will be quickly yanked from online official sources and put out for sale as a full release. Look at Drake's so far gone two years ago - released for free initially and then ended up going gold as an EP release.

I'm speaking about established artists who release a track for free and then include it on their next album release. It's a promotional device, as you say. Much of the time the record company is backing this activity - it will already be coming from an official source, possibly the bands official website.

I'm not talking about unestablished artists. I just think to dismiss free music because you're making an assumption that it is going to be rubbish is doing no one any favours.

I was talking about artists who release music as exclusively free. That's just my opinion - I buy a lot of music and prefer not to waste my time with free stuff of varying quality. If it's good enough, it will surface on an album which I will then buy. I don't bother with it before then because I'll be sick of it by the time the album drops.

If you saw the amount of free mixtapes being released online by talentless rappers you'd see why. I dont know what it's like in other genres. There is definitely some wheat amongst the chaff but they will put out an album or EP if they have the quality.

And I've read plenty of interviews where good artists say X song was too good for a free mixtape so they keep it for the album.

And I already know I cam have a blinkered view on music but I'm cool with that. I know what I like and I prefer to spend my time listening to it rather than searching out other music I may or may not like.

It appears that there are different release strategies and levels of quality in the free music that is released in out contrasting spheres of music. In which case both our attitudes are appropriate for each of us.

Of course what's great is when albums which were released for money are then offered for free!

Been meaning to buy L.A. Riot by Thurz for ages, then it shows up for free. Might actually buy the DJ quality version all the same!

Available for free here - http://www.djbooth.net/index/mixtapes/entry/thurz-la-riot/

How Do I Listen to Mine?
Almost all my music is on my ipod, 74GB worth to date. I'd listen to it mostly in my car, with the ipod linked through the stereo. For me, sound quality is everything, got to have proper bass.

I don't like having CD's, I just see them as clutter and never had Vinyl myself, but loved the sound. I download everything plus I have a couple of friends whom I swap music with occasionally.

When It comes to favourite bands or songs I'm pretty fickle and will it change with whatever my mood is that day, but hey, I'll listen to almost anything, and I mean anything, especially if I think I might find something new, original or real good.

I absolutely love finding and listening to new (or new to me) music. There are particular radio shows I like listening to, some fairly well known one's like Zane Lowe's on BBC Radio 1 and others less known from the internet. If I've heard something I like, but only have part of a song title or band name I'll usually use Youtube to find it.

I'm luke warm at best on a lot of the 80's stuff I grew up with. But gimme Blues, Rock n Roll, Classical, Dance, and good ole America Country boy music in that order an I'm a happy bunny!
