Every cd I get I listen to a minimum twice before putting it on my selves (alphabetical). I have thousands so yes, some go years without a play. But I go through stages. Right now I am listening to a

I buy on cd all the time. Why would I buy digital when cd is a hard copy of digital anyway? And vinyl is pitched at hipsters who want the cool factor, but the sound is inferior, the medium is fragile

I buy fleetingly anymore at best and I rarely bought/buy new releases. It was the rifling through racks and racks and racks at some Podunk pawn shop that did it for me. Always on the hunt for that 1 c

I love collecting CD's. Even with all the downloading & everything now... I'm the type of person who just has to have the actual disc. My collection isn't too big yet, but it has been growing RAPIDLY these past 3-4 years.

I have over 100 cds, but I would like to have more. Most of my collection is cassettes. I try to only keep albums that have something on it I like. If the cd or cassette is complete garbage I try to find a way to get rid of it. I don't have room for music I'll never listen to again.

Option 4 for me as well. I am always on the lookout for something I don't have in my collection. I used to get rid of cd's I didn't really care for but found out later down the road that my tastes in music are always changing and even though I might not like something now, I may pull it out a few years later and love it.

None of the options were right for me so I went with 4........

 

although I have to say is isnt 1000s its 1,000 odd.......and I definitely dont have any unopened. That would be music sacrilege IMO.

Option 4 for me and always open to new things. I listen to alot of different styles of stuff, so keeping up with everything can be quite a challenge all round, especially as I am a completist for certain (not all) bands/Artists. I have about 6.5 K in discs, so I really do need to slow down. A passion is a passion I suppose and Music is it!! :headbanger:

option 4. although i don't care so much for cds. if i don't have something i need on cd, mp3s will be ok. after all the best music was originally released on vinyl or tapes(with some very few exceptions)..... :tumbsup: still having some sleepless nights for some vinyls or tapes i'm still missing, but never for a cd......

Option 4...none unopened, haha?! Consistent album from start to finish is what I search. My narrow (AOR-hard rock-traditional metal) view of music limits the options nicely. I will pay big bucks for the stuff I like and I really don't enjoy listening music from mp3's or CD-Rs.

I guess Option #2 is closest for me... I used to be a "Gotta Catch'Em All" kind of guy till storage constraints (and the realization that I was buying tons of music but actually LISTENING to only a small percentage of it) came into play... since then I've weeded out a lot of stuff, but new stuff is always coming in...

Preach on brother Glen. No option's right up my alley, but 4 is closest.

 

I sure as all f*ck don't have any unopened CDs - what's the point in that? - but I do have a few thousand and am ALWAYS on the lookout for good new music. Perfect example - I got about 25 CDs in the mail yesterday and at the same time I was downloading 5 albums I really, really want to hear. For the first time in my life, I actually do have way more CDs than I can listen to, but it always evens out eventually.

 

One thing about me, though, is that I try to get rid of everything I don't like asap. Whether it be in trading, sales, ebay etc. I do try. The list is currently the biggest it's been due to lack of free time, and I have a lot to get rid of, but I only like keeping the best, most consistent CDs in my collection.

Haha... look at you cute lil ol' folk. Let me wiggle and pet the spare skin under your cute widdle wrinkly chins... "Ah... boogadaboobadaboo. Ah... boobadaboobadaboo." ;)

Option 4 for me as well. I am also guilty of having many that are still sealed. I just can't find the time to listen to them all. The wife doesn't care for our genre so that pretty much squashes listening to them when she's in the car.

I went with Option #3, but "couple hundred" is actually about 700 or so for me. I was never a "gotta have 'em all" kind of collector, but I did use to be far more tolerant of what I kept; nowadays, I need to really like a CD to hold onto it. Keeping a CD that I haven't listened to in the last 5 yrs. no longer makes sense for me.

I'm a combo of choices 2 & 4, and ultimately I went with # 4

 

I have a couple thousand CDs, BUT, I'm constantly purging stuff that no longer gets listened to. At the same time, I'm constantly adding through purchases and trading, so it's pretty much a constant turnover.

 

There is not anything unopened/unlistened to, and I can honestly say I've listened to all of my CDs multiple times. :tumbsup:

I am with Rick on this one. I might as well just keep them all. I guess I could have a worse habit than rock and roll. :tumbsup:

I guess options 4 and 5 maybe I like to collect everything from 1964 to current to encompass every genre of rock, but I most like collecting cd indies from late 80's to early 90's. A note with my 12,000+ cds I have listen to everyone of them at least once all the way through

Number 5 I guess.

The only thing is, I like A.O.R, hard rock, Metal. Thrash, Doom, Punk, Death(Early). There is know way I can collect it all.

 

 

i love the way you wrote them down,my brotha. seeing again the options, you're right.option 5 will work right and for me. of course i have less things to worry about(my tastes don't have the variety of a grocery store :christmas: ). i'm missing only 2 vinyls that still giving me sleepless nights (the one had the ex UK prime minister on drums :tumbsup: and the other used to blew off stage hippies like trouble, i still have the chance to get this one but alas 500 is way too much, and my best buddy doesn't compromise for less than that, ). of course i'm still missing at least 8 great US 7" singles( rocken, emerald, far east, steel vengeance, real steel, rex vector, black virgin, china white :crying::doh: etc) and this is a real pain in the ass. let alone the unknown ones.....

    • Love Frontline...great band 
    • Yeah man, you'd assume that was written and recorded by Blue Tears somewhere between 1990-1992, recorded by Sweet in 1994 with a tweak here and there for a songwriting credit. But defo an original BT song. 
    • Was listening to Blue Tears today and Forever Yours played. Pretty sure that Michaels Sweet recorded it first, but they both have writing credits. That said I'm pretty sure it was on a Blue Tears album that was a collection of historic tracks, so maybe they recorded it first and then MS did it later. Bother great versions.
    • I actually listened to my Best of B&T today. No More Broken Dreams is one of the better songs of all time
    • That last track posted reminds me a lot of Danger Danger
    • New album out now on Noble Demon Records, available on Spotify. Seems to be much more stylistically varied than the last album... and I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I'm going to need some repeat listens with this one.
