Default How many times do you listen to an album?

Okay, so there is a large discrepancy in the amount of times different people listen to albums. So how many times do you guys spin a new album before forming your opinion on it?

How many times do you guys listen to albums before moving on to a new one completely?

For me, it often depends on the album. For example, an album like Redman's "Dare Iz A Darkside" is so dense in the production department that it warrants multiple listens just to pick out the intricacies layered in the sound.

Other records like Aesop's Rock "Labor Days" have many many lyrical plays. There are metaphors, alliterations, references, and hidden meanings that take many listens to be fully deciphered. Lyrical albums often demand attention to fully appreciate.

Generally, I listen to albums about 4-5 times before moving on. If it's worth revisiting, I will. But around 5 times and then I move on to another record.
