Limewire is awful. keyword: torrents

Music Banter has changed my musical life in big ways. Perhaps the biggest change is the fact that I no longer listen to a couple songs from an album (usually the singles) and then judge entire albums/bands from only a couple minutes while disregarding the rest of their work. Everything is an album experience now, aside from the occasional shuffle of familiar songs.

I learned that too, except I've made the jump from torrents to mediafire.

I used to only care about singles but now I've got entire albums filling up my MP3 player. I used to think having more than three days worth of music was absurd, but now I've got a lot more than that. also:

I'm only well versed in IDM and Trip hop, but I'd love to see what electronica you have up your sleeve. I only like Deadmau5 so far, but I have a feeling that I should be listening to a lot more.

Music Banter has taught me that there are a hell of a lot of sheep around who will just blindly follow the next trend and who will also acquire the same handful of albums as everybody else of a particular genre just to say they know about it.

That in return has shown me I have nothing to fear about listening to music and that I don't really care what people think about what I listen to. I don't care if an album has sold 20 copies or 20 million copies, if I like it I like it.

It has also taught me to appreciate people with their own minds, regardless of whether they like the same music as me or not as they are few & far between.

I hope I am not one of those sheep despite liking the Fall

I was hoping that my unashamed love for old school Metal rekindled your interest

Oh it has

I was sorting out my cd collection the other day & uploaded a load of old Sepultura, Suicidal Tendencies, Megadeth, Cathedral, Danzig & Samhain albums.

I might even go find my old Testament & Exodus albums and do those too.
Oh and I downloaded that Death Angel album you said I should give another chance to.

That's kind of how I'm beginning to feel. Besides The Fall I really haven't discovered much in the way of artists through this site, that is artists with whom I have a strong desire to explore their entire discography. I've gotten a lot of albums "just to say [I] know about it" from this website but in the last few months I've really began to analyze myself from a musical standpoint and I've come to this conclusion, I'm a metalhead at heart. While I think I did the right thing by exploring indie rock this year, I got a decent bounty of albums, but metal is where I belong.

I know how you feel.
I got to the stage at some point during mid 2008 when I swear I would have killed someone at having to listen to another psychedelic indie folk album just so I could claim to be up to date with what was coming out.

In the end I just thought fuck it, I can't be bothered anymore.

Speaking of which, I also learned that liking Animal Collective is socially unacceptable.

MB has also taught me that no matter what you could possibly think about an album/artist, there is someone out there with the exact opposite opinion.
