When you all are listening to new tracks, do you skip around to see if you the song will hook you or not (like going straight to the middle of the song)? And if the song doesn't hook you immediately, do you just move onto a new track?

Trying to figure out if I'm the only one who do this Smile

When I like the intro I'll go a bit past it, when I hear beats then I'll go to near the end .. when its the same beats there ... saves me lots of time Shocked Laughing

When I don't hear beats, or different beats I'll listen the whole.

oh, and welcome

I skip around to see if there are interesting changes. If it sounds the same at every test interval I probably won't ever sit through the whole thing.

My music typically builds layers over time. Some players (eg. AcidTrash) jump all over the place and I like that. I thought I hated EDM but Dreamofasiagirl changed my mind. It's dance beat but something changes every few measures, and the changes are fun.

I guess my pet peave is a promising intro that gets my hopes up but then doesn't ever go anywhere. There are a lot of e-m tunes like that, I'm afraid.

No set ways, really. There are so many variables, is it a vocal track, an instrumental track, jazz, rock, blues? If it's a vocal track, are the lyrics important, is there a "message"? Is it a new track by an act I know from before, or is it all completely new to me?
Anyroad, it's all become less magical since the days when vinyl was king.

I press play and listen through the whole thing, usually while doing something else. If it's an album (physical, on Spotify, a bundle of mp3s etc), I'll start at track 1 and listen through all tracks. If it piqued my interest, I'll listen through it again sometime, starting at the beginning and not stopping until it's finished.

I'd listen in some other way, if the very thought didn't make me shiver and sweat.

Oops. Oskar made a good point. I'd assumed we were talking about e-m. My approach is entirely different with other kinds of music.

Nevermind.
