I think production plays a VERY important role in replayability. Even if the dopest rhymes are being spit, if the beats are weak/uninteresting, it won't age well and thus won't be very replayable. This makes sense when you look at the early Wu-Tang albums because RZAs production back then was just raw and unique.
Well, Ironman was in constant rotation, I remember that, But I wore out my Supreme Clientele cd in 1 year. In 2000 I must've listened to it 3 times a day for the entire year.

I was a freshman in high school when 36 Chambers came out, so in essence, yes I grew up with them.

Damn, you're lucky bro. I mean, I'm a senior in high school now and we've got great hip hop now, but to experience the whole rise of the Wu must've been something else.

And I didn't even know it was possible to wear out a CD! Did it get scratched from all the handling?

It depends on the album.

Usually a week of non stop playing gives me a good indication if I like it or not.

this

like I've heard Fantastic Volume 2 like 300 times, same for Wu Forever, Moment of Truth

I'll put one of those on any morning and be happy, it'd be too hard to count

but to take an album that I copped and wasn't enamored with but enjoyed, I liked Saigon's Greatest Story Never Told (1), and heard it probably ten times. Certain songs off it many times that.

So in that week of focused playing, do you listen to solely that album, or do you intersperse it with other albums?

That depends.
For instance the album PWOWR I listened to it non stop the entire week. Something about it was off to me and I could not place it, so I listened to other albums that weekend and then came back to the PWOWR and was able to pinpoint what I thought was off.

How can someone know how many times they have listened to an album? Ive had 36 Chambers and the like since i was 13 and ive heard them fuckin loads of times fuck knows if its hundreds or thousands.

I dont listen to an albums as many times nowadays as i did when i was younger. Back then i didnt have fuck all money so the little that i did have went on 1 album and id listen to that shit over and over again, wheras now i have the coin ta buy a few and i dont have as much time to listen to them over and over again.

If an album doesnt hit me after 5-6 listens or has wack fuckin beats then i am not listening to it again.

Damn, that's a lot of Fantastic Vol. 2 plays. Album truly has the most incredible beats. I'm glad they did a reissue in 2010 with instrumentals. I like SV raps, but they are clearly not as good as Wu-Tang for example. I'm listening to the instrumentals for months now. Definitely didn't listen to it as much as you, but the instrumental version will get there haha.

If a producer uses heartbeats instead of kicks you know he's the greatest.
