    I've only bought physical where I knew there was at least potential from a favorite band, or a single that was promising.
    I have so many 'growers' in my collection, started off not liking them so much but after 3, 4, 5 even 10 listens, they keep getting better.
    They tend to have staying power vs ones I immediately like and tend to overplay. So, I've learned to pace myself on those. One group I only listen to maybe twice a year, and their whole catalog (now 5 albums), headphones, bean bag chair, dark room, red wine.

    Now digital ... too numerous to count

    I’ll play anything more than once. But “Psychoderelict” and “The Capeman” probably only got played about twice…

    Dylan - Shadows in the Night.
    Hated it.
    I wasn't going to bother with it, but it got such good reviews and I saw it cheap.

    Most of them. In a few cases (step forward, Köhntarkösz by Magma! (*)), I played the first side once and never listened again. I probably should have done the same thing for the Laibach LP I bought, but I toughed it out, to my detriment. In numerous cases I listened only to the singles or other songs I liked afterward.

    (*) I'm not absolutely certain about the umlaut placement, but whatever
  13. Always a mistake to listen to an album once and dismiss it if it doesn't grab you immediately.
    Any number of things may be distracting you.
    There are exceptions to this though.

    ELP "Love Beach", "Black Moon" and 'In the Hot Seat" However, I am currently listening to ELP's catalog chronologically and will revisit these in the coming days. Maybe they won't be as bad as I remember!

    I saw Ted Nugent perform at the Texxas Jam festival when I was in high school. I wasn’t familiar with his music other than “Cat Scratch Fever.” Everyone else seemed really into his performance and were singing along. So sometime later I bought Intensities in Ten Cities. I don’t think I finished listening to it even once, I just could not get into it. :shrug:

    I like The White Stripes and The Greenhornes but I thought this album sucked. Played the CD once.. Got rid of it.

    Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines. The title track is the only good part of that album.

    Prince, 'Around The World In A Day.' Huge letdown after '1999' and 'Purple Rain.' Couldn't connect with it at all. Streamed it a few months ago and it didn't change my mind.

    Van Zant - Get Right With the Man

    Thought I was getting some solid Southern Rock, but it turned out to be generic modern country.
