Has technology changed the way you appreciate music?
I grew up in the age of cassettes and CDs (and also in a household with a significant amount of vinyl albums). I used to listen to albums the whole way through, because it was easier than skipping to particular songs. My favorite albums, I have listened to countless times the whole way through. Got to enjoy all the little transitions and “secret” tracks that way.
But when I buy new albums now, I often don’t start at the beginning anymore, because I almost always buy digital. I’ll start with one or two songs that I already know, and gradually work my way outwards.
What has your experience been with music appreciation at different stages of technology?
