How many times do you listen to an album before you decide you like it or hate it. Me? I don’t have a number, really. I’m shooing for more of a feeling most of the time. I listen until I figure out how I feel. Then I have to listen to the album and figure out why I feel that way according to what’s going on in the music. There’s no set number, and there will probably never be a set number. That’s just the way the process works.
