I agree with hobo, but I'm still balancing on that line, wanting to listen to whole albums to immerse in the experience. I think when we were young listening to whole albums whether it was cassettes, or vinyl, or CDs, we would still listen to some to death, and others got barely touched because there might have been one or two songs good and the rest were not as interesting to us. I'm still that way. I have a massive amount of mp3s that aren't getting much attention, and always intend to put together playlists or mixes of the good stuff but never do. And I rarely listen on shuffle.

I'm a huge fan of shuffle. I used to listen only to the songs I really liked on an album (CDs were a dream come true for that). The impatience of youth, perhaps. Or it's completely reasonable - life is shorrt, why waste your time listening to stuff you don't like when there is so much more out there to discover? But now I find it interesting to ask myself why i don't like a particular song. Doubt I'll ever figure it out but anyway. Maybe it's just masochism

Well, when an artist create
s something, I'd like to listen to the whole thing if I can manage it, to see what they intended. Not saying I would listen that way multiple times unless it was what I like.
