Default Are you more album or song person?

As in, do you like to listen to an entire album and get to know it etc or just listen to singles you like?

Depends on the artist, very unlikely to sit through a Zara Larson album but her singles are cute

In general.

MUCH more of a song person than albums. There's so many albums I just can't sit through and get tired of even in the best of genres (rap/hip hop)

And I mostly only listen to an album in full once or twice at most

and tbh I can't think of many artists where I'd listen to only a few of their songs without perching an album

In general I'm a song person. I will mostly just pick out the singles/tracks from the album I like the most and then add them to my own curated playlists.

Albums because so many songs that are great aren't released as singles and it takes more time to get to know/enjoy the other album tracks, so I like to listen through albums as a whole.

I’d say I’m more of a song person tbh although it’s always a good feeling when you listen to an album and find a hidden gem on there that should’ve been a single release.

Generally depends, some albums are little gems of perfection and need to be listened to all the way through - I get triggered my Spotify shuffling them

But sometimes I just fancy listening to one song from one album and a couple from another...

Songs. I do listen to an album at least once of someone I'm a fan of but when it comes to my library it's all random songs/half albums. If I just bought completed albums my OCD would be triggering from thinking of all those album tracks I don't like that are taking up space.

Albums... I'm not checking for artists that can't put out a good body of work outside of singles

While neither are even close to being my favourite artists, two of my favourite "whole albums" are The Fame by Lady Gaga and Sacha Fierce by Beyonce.

But I don't like the extended versions of either, just the originals.

I don't particularly like many of the songs on their own from either album, apart from Halo and Summer Boy, but as a whole both albums are really good.

Honestly both. If I’m gonna get into an artist I’ll usually listen to their most popular single just to know I’ll like it, then I’ll listen to their latest album the whole way through.

For daily listening though my library just goes on shuffle, only my top tier artists I’ll regularly revisit a full album listen for.

100% singles, most albums have too much filler tracks.
