What do you guys think of best of albums or just listening to hit singles in general?
Why tho? I get that albums are a cohesive whole and prefer listening to those but there are many artists that for me have a handful of great songs and almost everything else on their albums is filler.
Compilations are OK, if the artist/band isn't drastically changing sound from record to record, but if they do (e.g. OP-pic), it's fucking trash.
Listening to singles is alright if you don't have much time to really get into the band and also can work if you're trying to get into somebody with a large backlog, since there's much more chance you'll find a single that you like, instead of listening to 1-2 full albums that you're not guaranteed to get on the first try, and dropping everything, missing on something that you'd maybe like.
