The first time I listen to an album, it's in it's entirety, in order.

After that, I skip songs I dislike, or listen to certain songs I like a lot.
I refuse to listen to songs I dislike.

I've been an album person since the time I started buying music around 9 or 10 years old, and I still listen to albums start to finish 99% of the time.

But that doesn't keep me from shuffling my collection or making a playlist once in a while, or cherry-picking a song here or there that I feel like listening to.

There are also singles from when I was a kid that I enjoy for nostalgic reasons but couldn't care less to hear the entire album because it's not my thing.

I really like finding albums that play well from start to finish. It doesn't always happen, but it's great when it does.

I think you're missing out because many times a song transforms into a favorite only after repeated listening.

I don't always do this, a lot of the time I do but I have a real knack for making compilations and playlists so a lot of the time I'll just bung a load of different tracks together from different artists and listen like that.

Or sometimes I really just crave a few tracks off of an album (for example, this morning I listened to just Velouria, Ana, All Over The World, Dig For Fire, Down To The Well off of Bossanova).

Of course, the opposite is also true. I'll be damned if I could ever listen to the entirety of Synchronicity anytime soon, and I only grew to despise many of those songs after listening to them for a couple of years.

I prefer listening to whole albums myself. At least, at first. I honestly think that the dramatic effect created from the relationships between songs can heighten the experience as a whole. Then again, I also have deeper respect for bands that aim to focus on full albums than hit songs, make videos from their hit songs, and then pad down whatever else the artist has to package with it.

I occasionally listen to albums in abridged mode when I've heard them enough times. This means usually 4-5 songs. Usually though, it's only if I've listened to the album 5000 times already.

I do occasionally listen to singular songs but rarely. Usually only when they're in my head, and I'm not already listening to something.

When I get an album first I will listen to it through, but after that I delete any songs I don't like and put whatever song I'm in the mood for at that given time.
