I'm so bored of this album already.

Kiss & Tell and Rebel Girl were still the most exciting things to come off that album/promotion cycle. 

Losing My Mind, Restless Souls sure good, but very quickly don't want to put any effort in to revisit.

 

They REALLY needed another banger like K&T or RG to keep any interest once it was released. 

I feel the same. I listened to it twice since there full thing released and I’ve just got no desire to revisit the whole thing. Few songs here and there? Sure. Whole thing in one sitting. Nah.

i don't remember the last time an album came out that i listened to constantly. maybe neighborhoods 10 years ago? so, for me, it's not even a valid critique anymore. music kinda sucks now. 

Fair.  Something about streaming made the listening less constant. 

 

Neighborhoods and Untitled are by far the most listened to albums in my lifetime. 

I definitely still think it's a pretty boring album since we got the two best songs first (IMO).

I just put the ones I like on my main playlist, and im still happy.

only newish album I’ve listened to intentionally as a whole is Bo Burnhams Inside. Not many full records feel like decent experiences anymore. I always try, but they rarely deliver.

MGK - Downfall, b182- NINE, and TBS - Tidal Waves are really the only three I can think of in the past 4 years that kept me engaged start to finish (blink for biased reasons).  I love some albums that have come out, but I can't pretend they don't go straight to playlists before it reaches any levels of the good ol days.

If I like an album I’ll listen to it front to back for a few weeks when it’s new. I’m not much of a playlist guy though.

Same ... occasionally I'll throw on a band specific radio on Spotify. I'm not handpicking songs to soundtrack my day to though.

I have some specific playlists but I mostly have a huge one full of what I’ve been listening to for the last few years. Currently has like 160 hours of music or some nonesense on it. Shove it on shuffle, skip what I’m not in the mood for.

my teen years were all random shuffles through my mp3 player so it’s kind of like reliving that.

Yeah that’s all I do as well. I just like albums. When an album is good it’s put together thoughtfully so I listen to it like that. Even when I’m going on long drives I’ll make a playlist but it’ll be album followed by album etc.

I do realise it’s not the “normal” way these days but that’s just me.

maybe it's less about the quality of music and more about how things are released now (streaming).

we'll never experience the excitement of buying a record at the store on release day again. we also rarely experience the excitement of an album leaking early anymore either. 

instead, we get whatever the hell they decided to do with this album.

Well, you think about the fact we would sit on the radio station and wait for our songs, until finally we'd get our hands on the album, and get to experience all these new songs we had nothing but the back of the CD tracklist to guess what it'd be like based off the name.

Then to have to hunt down and find leaks on limewire or kazaa, put the effort in to burn a CD to listen to it on good quality, but on some cheap blank disc.

Then to YouTube having easier access to leaks and full albums, but still having to jump around song to song, get the artwork and everything.

Then to now where it's instant access, do as you please from the Spotify server, or YouTube with a million ads.
