I'm always doing something, usually browsing the internet. Unless I put music on when I'm in bed. Even then I'm usually messing about on my phone these days.

I'm confused as to why someone would do that. What are the advantages to having one giant track?

Well, for me, the advantages are simple: having all my albums on my PC. Now, I know I could just rip them, and keep the songs individually, but when I listen to a CD, I never skip songs, I always listen straight through. I compare it to movies: I don't watch movies and skip to the scenes I like, I watch the whole thing. Same with albums, even if I hate a particular song, I'll listen to it since it's part of the album... part of the experience. It's just a weird quirk that I have.

You could still listen to the whole thing straight through if it were broken down into individual tracks though. In fact, that would make the experience more like a CD, not less.

Didn't somebody do that when they were ripping a Beatles album for you? I don't remember if it was in FLAC format or whatever, but I remembered that you mentioned it and you used my upload instead

Batlord, don't even lie to yourself. As your top stalker, I can assure you that you most certainly do watch Desperate Housewives. Now, if they just made a Desperate Househusbands, you'd be even more pleased.

I respect your listening habits and all, but I absolutely hate it when I find an album that's been consolidated into one file. It happens frequently with prog and classical for some odd reason, and I wind up never listening to the thing as a result.

Pretty much everything I do, I'm listening to music. Mostly when I'm browsing the internet or riding my bike. I always listen to music in my free time.
