Default How many Of You..

Base your opinion on an album or artist just by what you have heard from other people? i was in college earlier today listening to some Onyx i think, maybe Sticky, and i realised i have Sticky's 'Decade' album, and never listened to it because what has been said about it. Ive heard its not good at all so i just havent listened to it, even though im a huge fan of Onyx and Sticky. ima check it out later im sure its not as bad as everyone says.

Anyone else ever passed up albums you wanted to hear but didnt because of other peoples opinions?

Nope. I got my own mind. What's trash to you could be the next man's treasure .

Oh yeah, and "Decade" isn't terrible, it's got a couple good tracks...it was jus' a poor follow up to the incredible "Black Trash" album.

I never listen to other people. Sometimes it even takes a couple times listening to a cd to actually like it.

I use other people's opinions heavily when deciding what to buy. My tastes are aligned with those of a lot of people that post here, so I've bought several albums in the last couple of months alone without having heard them - only because I heard here that they were good. Eg: One Be Lo, Sean Price, Buckshot, etc... That said, I know what I don't like so that if someone here says The Massacre is hot, I chalk that up to someone else's opinion and move on...

The Massacre was hot! ...Once I set it alight and threw it across the street...

i supose othe rpeoples opinions can influence me slightly but nah i dont think ive not listened to an album cos ive heard its shit. i've bought albums cos ive heard theyre good, de la souls 3 feet & grind date, beastie boys - pauls boutique, p.e - it takes a nation, jigga - reasonable doubt. jigga album is shite, but the other r quite dope except beastie boys, its aight, so i go on reccomendation sometimes, when i don't have other cd's I want to buy, even if it is 50 cent. i don't care, if i like it then i'll get it or if i think it might be good i might buy it.

it depends on 'who' influences you on what to listen or what not to listen to....
if you know someone on the internet (or otherwise) that shares the same ear for music as yours you'll listen to what they have to say.....if some random person says something about an album/track you're on the fence with, I personally simply omit their comments and decide for myself

Sometimes you need to. If a large portion of listeners didnt do this, then the point of reviewing albums would be pointless. And of course people read reviews and that gives them some idea what the album would be like after reading several reviews. There are a lot of dope albums out there that I might never get around to listening to, so thats another reason....not every album can be sampled.

But of course not always. There are lots of albums that I bought that I discovered are dope and then heard other people that think its dope too. And there are other albums that I have discovered without anyone's opinion and was judging it by myself in the dark.
