If you break into some dudes house in some schizophrenic hallucination, and the owner decides not to have you charged, you still got caught even though you didn't recieve any punishment. Probably not the best analogy but whatever
1. Download/Buy Mixtape/Album by an artist
2. Pay attention to the features on the mixtape/album
3. Listen to mixtapes/albums from the featured artists that you figure are worth your time.
4. Repeat steps 1-3.
There's a definite difference. You probably have shit headphones.
-I hear a song (usually Pandora or Songza)
-Go on Spotify
-Listen to about 20 seconds of each song by the artist, ever, by album (especially most popular songs)
-Download ones that sound good
Usually I later hear one on pandora that I missed from that artist, and I go get it.
But I HAVE to know what music I have. How do all of you just download albums, not knowing how each song is? Isn't it hard to make specialized playlists?
I buy CD's because I like having better sound quality on my iPod than a random YouTube mp3. Also, I can play them in my car too, without having to hook up an aux cable to my iPod. And once in a while I might buy an iTunes mp3, but only if there's one or two really good songs on a trash album. I don't illegally download, not so much for the morality aspect (although it is important to me that the artists get SOME profit from their creations), but for the better audio quality.
What it is? A discography is just all of an artist's albums.
And spotify all the way. I always get the whole album and put it in one of my playlists, maybe one or two more of their other popular ones. If I really like them after a while, I'll get the whole discography. I hardly ever need music on my phone anyway at school. When I do download music though I get whole albums though.
I start with albums, and if I decide I really like the artist after a couple albums I go for the discography. Mostly when I'm listening to music I like to listen to albums from beginning to end or live shows, so individual songs don't usually make it into my library.
Ever since I got my VPN I usually download discographys of artists i know I like. Other than that singles for EDM stuff and albums for other stuff. I was never an album person but then I realized its nice to listen to an album all the way through. Its like a piece of art.
ya i dont feel the need to waste 300 dollars on some headphones, so i have tiny (so tiny i couldnt tell the difference) worse sound quality, an extra 300 dollars in my pocket and twice as many songs on my ipod. seems like a pretty good deal to me
Even with shitty headphones, listen to the songs of both quality. There's definitely still a difference, but I'm just really OCD about that shit I guess. I have friends whos whole library is basically Video2MP3 shit from youtube. Sounds terrible i dont know how they deal with it,
there really isnt a difference at all, because i had nothing better to do i downgraded a song from 320 to 120 and couldnt hear a difference, so then i downgraded it all the way 60 still no difference i could hear
