hi guys just wondering how often would you play a disc after buying it ... like would it become a lesser play or does it still have that special appeal even after weeks of play... :?:


:D :) 8) :!: :arrow: :wink: Geoff

Hi, I've played MFD the most regularly over the last few weeks every day and Encore the most over the last decades once a week approx recently!

Well Geoff in the case of Madcaps i have been listening to it on the ipod more and more over the last few weeks,really has hit the spot with me in a big way 8) Sometimes albums that sound good from the start can get a little tedious after time,but it can also work the other way round....... :D

A good album is a good album Geoff and will always be played. I do try not to flog a thing to death though.

That depends entirely upon the quality of the disc. For example, I couldn't stand TD's Tyger, so consequently it was quickly retired. On the other hand, when I first discovered TD back in the 1970s, the records (Rubycon, Ricochet, etc.) received constant play.

Of course, I don't like to get overly tired of a record, either. If I find that a disc's music is starting to grow stale, I leave it alone, sometimes for months at a time, so that when I pull it out again, I can listen to it with fresh ears.

That's an interesting one. When I get a new release I just have it on loop to the exclusion of all else for a while. And it's not alwys the releases that I loop for longest that end up in the top ranking as there's the accessibility issue. I listened to DM4 for weeks but rarely now.

As expressed above over time quality* makes itself apparent.





* Quality is subjective. Opinions of a release may go up or down. Terms and conditions apply.

if I play a record 60 times, then another 120 times, does it mean the second is twice as good? of course not, these comparisons are daft (IMHO)..they're the logic of radio playlists...more is better. I only play Ricochet 3 or 4 times a year, but it's still better than 99.9% of all rest in my opinion (I've probably played MFD over 50 times).

I would agree that you can play stuff too much, a bit like eating your favourite food twice a day for 19 years...after a while no matter how good it starts to bore you.

Encore has stood the test of time for me even though I've played it so much over the decades and I still enjoy it as much as I used to , if not more than I used to. I think the fact that I play it so often proves how much I like it, not that it is the best album for everyone but because it is the best for me. I rarely play Ricochet because it is not the best for me. :wink:

I've done the same with Stratosfear, Phaedra and Encore.

Rubycon does it for me in the long term satisfaction stakes. I was lucky
enough to get my hands on the enhanced SACD version and the clarity just adds another dimension to what is already a true musical event.

Have to say that despite some apathy amongst some fans for tangentising, Edgars re-interpretations of the Tangram pieces were a masterstroke and like Rubycon, I never seem to tire of them.

I dig the Tangents boxset, especially for White Eagle and the Hyperborea tracks.

'hells bells' I've got to agree, 'for me' the White Eagle remixes are better than the originals

and I love the symphonic sounds throughout Mojave Plan and No Man's Land, the rapid sequence of the track White Eagle and the heavy beat of Hyperborea.
