I'm less likely to check out an album unless the band name, album name or album art is kinda cool.
Actually, the reverse is more true.
Most people judge an album by its cover.
When I stopped doing that, I ended up listening to a bunch of good music that I wouldn't have otherwised. Pic related.
I study music at university and gig a lot.
I think that makes me qualified to talk about music yet somehow to some retards no education somehow equals better understanding and deeper understanding of music. This is why I don't frequent here much outside of the occasional jazz and drum thread.
I generally won't listen to music that have shitty musicians playing. But people seem to love that shit here. DUDE LMAO LOVELESS
LMFAO TALKING HEADS DOOOOD
Good music comes from good musicians.

They are. I've literally been playing music since age two. It's all I've ever done.
Playing technique allows for smoother improv which can easily be written down. If you can't play your instrument, good luck writing for it.
If a song is by two or more artists, I pick my favorite from the bunch and sort them under that, then add (ft. X...) after the song title
I used to do this, which is why I never gave 80% of the stuff on /mu/ a chance.
I know better now, and so should you
I actually take people's musical opinions into consideration, regardless of how good or bad their taste is.
