It's a very common way people listen to music.

Like... Exceedingly common.

Which is why its a symptom of ADHD, because natural human behaviour is apparently ADHD now

ADHD is a very real and can be quite debilitating. People with the condition do fixate on things and self stimulate. It’s definitely over-diagnosed - still a real thing.

Archy38 t1_j9izevc wrote

This becomes apparent with our annual Spotify stats, my (non ADHD) friends would always have way more artists discovered but I would have those same artists that they shared with me but like...listened to their entire discography and enough that they make my top 5

It is a good feeling because once the fatigue sets in from binging them, I discover another artist and binge on them instead. Helps to appreciate the lesser-known songs that are overshadowed by the overplayed hits.

Is it common for people to listen the same album like 2-10 times a day (depending on what you're doing) for a couple of months? I've always been told I'm weird because of that

lellololes t1_j9i80hn wrote

2 times? Not odd.

10 is a bit weird though.

_BlueFire_ t1_j9j3hos wrote

Not regular, but when I was able to manage focusing on my studies I could easily loop something 3-4 times a day minimum. There was one album which lasted precisely a pomodoro cycle of 1h and I even used it to have a rhythm. My average then was probably like 6-8 times a day and there's when I probably peaked at 10.

Then fast forward on year and I got diagnosed mild ADHD lol

lellololes t1_j9jpoiv wrote

10 is a lot. Not surprised at the diagnosis.

Most people don't have an opportunity to listen to music that much, never mind the same album on repeat ten times in a day.

2

_BlueFire_ t1_j9jwak3 wrote

Yeah, but more than the amount of times it's that music was essential to properly study (from here the amount). It keeps one piece of my mind occupied so it doesn't wander around lol It frightens knowing that I'm still in the "able to properly function" side of the spectrum

lellololes t1_j9jx3ok wrote

Makes sense to me.

I don't have ADD but having some form of music playing can help me focus on a task.

For me at least, it generally needs to be instrumental or mostly instrumental.

What I think it does for me is removes the drudgery of doing something that is repetitive and boring.

That being said, I don't need it to be the same album over and over again. I have broad tastes and a lot to pull from musically.

1

_BlueFire_ t1_j9kjlgf wrote

I mostly need to know it well enough to be able to background it. Not being an native English speaker helps, but for example the 6-8-times-a-day album was Italian so lol (I also liked the exam, which helped even though I hated what of the exam had to be studied).

I listen a lot of music, but that's my approach to the new one. I need to get fixated on something for a while to propey register it

TheBeginningOfMe t1_j9i5470 wrote

It's a little odd. Are you a truck driver with only 2 CDs in your vehicle?

_BlueFire_ t1_j9kke4g wrote

Student, when I study I often loop throughout the day. However I dive into an album before going to the next one (I also need to find something to get fixated, if it doesn't I listen it kinda normally, but it can get annoying wanting to listen something and not knowing what. A big fridge full of unfilling left overs)

Athelis t1_j9i6d0y wrote

Yea lately there's a few live shows I've been throwing on whenever I want some music in the background. Which led to me rediscovering my love of Blind Guardian. But things will cycle and I'll move on to something else and "rediscover" something else.

Hansi is a great singer. He sang on a couple of Ayreon albums, you should check them out (If you're not familiar, it's a collaborative group that pulls in different singers for each album - including Mikael Akerfeldt, James Labrie, Bruce Dickinson, and Devin Townsend).

Athelis t1_j9i9sid wrote

Ahh yea I'll check them out, I'm a Maiden fan so I'll definitely have to listen to the one with Dickinson.

One of the other shows I've been listening to Ween Live in Chicago. Definitely worth a listen if you're looking for something different. The band was firing on all cylinders that night.

Start with "The electric castle". It's without Hansi but just mind-blowing. Dude, I wish I could be in your position and discover ayreon all over again.

M-atthew147s t1_j9isd6q wrote

No it's not.

Exclusively??? It's 'exceedingly common' to really like an album and listen to that a heck of a lot in a short period of time. But to 'almost exclusively' listen to it for 2 months is absolutely ridiculous.

People here clearly don't know what exclusively means...

2

lellololes t1_j9jr3s7 wrote

I dunno, when I was younger and bought albums I sure as hell would listen to them over and over - maybe in part because I didn't have an unlimited supply of new music. Even today when I encounter something new these days I'll listen to it a lot. I think "exclusively" probably falls a bit on the ADD or OCD side, but "listening to one album more than everything else combined" is definitely quite common.

As with everything in life, there is a very wide range of ways that people interact with music.

It is the reason why the company that spends the most money to keep pushing an artists song out onto the radio will usually be in the top 10 easily. It isn't who is the best, just which label will sponsor their artist the most.

Any chance you have ADHD? This is a common occurrence for me where I get hyper fixated and listen to a specific type of sound until I never want to hear it again.

I was going to comment this but thought I would scroll down to see if someone commented and they did! It’s a common ADHD trait. I don’t usually fixate on an album, usually a song. I put it on repeat and listen to nothing else for periods of time.

I do the same thing but for a different reason. If I listen to a song enough times, it gets ingrained in my memory and then I can listen to it whenever I want by playing said song in my head

Elegant_Spot_3486 t1_j9gqspx wrote

Always have. If I like it I wear it out. In my youth the cycles were shorter though because so much good music was made back then I always had something new to crank up. So often it might be a couple albums of different styles (rock, pop, hip hop, metal). But I can play any of those and know what I was in to at the time, my relationship info, who I hung out with and stuff like that.

What I do almost every day is pick an artist and start listening to their entire discography in chronological order.

This is a special kind of self torture since there's not a streaming service that gives a rat dick about release years. Albums are sorted alphabetically, I have to keep a Wikipedia tab open to track the listen order

Seriously, am i the only person that cares about album years?

I do something similar after getting tired of shuffled song by listening to a band I like's entire discography in order and hearing them evolve as a band and give myself that band's vibe for a few hours or days, depending on their output and what I'm doing. Gives me a vibe/ a soundtrack for that time.

(Also, I have many time travel albums that bring me right back to specific times in my life that I listened to on repeat at that time)

atomic1fire t1_j9i51wh wrote

Sort of, but it's more so that I tend to look for songs that match whatever's on my mind or whatever "thing" I think I need to hear at the moment. Although sometimes it is a fixtation on a certain artist or genre, most of the time I'm just looking to deal with something and the music is just there to destress or reorient.

It's also why I don't usually like describing what kind of music do I listen to, because I feel like I have to compromise for fear of hearing something like "Why do you listen to THAT?".

In a weird way I guess it's my opinion that music can be social and also innately personal, so for me asking "What's on your playlist" is equal parts "What do you like to listen to?" and "What are you like?" and I don't always feel open to answering personal questions.

No doubt. Every year some of my favorite bands come out with new music and every year, on my Spotify wrapped, my top 5 songs are usually the first 5 songs of that new album haha.

Me and my friends went through a degen phase and 2 albums were the soundtrack to said degen phase. I’ve got an album that reminds me of my first year of college, walking through the quad on my way to history class. I’ve got an album that reminds me of moving out of my parents house for the first time. Dad rock, mainly Zeppelin live tunes, for when me and the boys were smokin weed in high school haha.

I’ve got a buddy who reserves certain artists/albums for seasons tho which is different and intriguing.

It's just how I've always listened to music. I'll listen to a apecific album until I know it like the back of my hand. Then move to the next one. I eventually go back and realise what a good album most of them are, and wonder why the hell it's been so long lol

imacmadman22 t1_j9j5r2j wrote

Back when we bought actual, physical media (records, tapes, CDs) I listened to entire albums from beginning to end, repeatedly until I knew every song. All the lyrics, all of the music and I also read the liner notes and credits over and over. I quite literally wore out all of the first several albums I ever owned from repeated listening.

It’s a bit tougher now to get all of the information with streaming services, but Wikipedia helps. I’m currently working through Toto’s catalog, I really forgot how good they are and how many really good songs they wrote besides their big hits. Before them, I spent about two months listening to a couple of older Santana albums. Next up, who knows?

It’s especially good when the album synches up really well with something else thematically similar that’s going on in your life. I started listening to the album “Coral Throne” by Mandroid Echostar at the same time I started playing Dark Souls, and they both complemented each other really well because of the medieval themes. I started listening to “Passion of Heist II” by I Am Abomination and the same thing happened, as the themes are basically about moral-less gods wrecking our world.

yeah I tend to listen to a lot of an artist or genre for a bit and then it eventually cycles to something else.

I actually make playlists of my current “favorite” songs and name the playlist for the time of year it is. Ill put like “early 2022” for the title and add songs that I’m currently listening to the most on it. Then when it seems like those songs are no longer relevant to the new group of songs I’m listening to (like I’m cycling out of listening to them) I make a new playlist like “mid-2022” or “late 2022” depending on the time of year.

I do this all the time. It's why I can place songs on exact years released, because I can remember certain situations where I was doing something listening to a song and I've moved quite a bit in my life and had many jobs. So doing something based on the environment I'm in while doing so can pinpoint the song's year pretty well.

I usually play a song/album/seasonal playlist out for a few weeks, then go back to my usual stuff like Spotify's New Music Friday. I listened to almost nothing but Tame Impala for a year when I discovered them, it was the first time ever that my attention was held for more than a few weeks.

Killer-Styrr t1_j9k4b9x wrote

I'm like that, and it might not be a majority way to listen, but it's not uncommon at all either.

Importantly, I think you get A LOT out of your music/artist that way.
(Disclaimer: Different strokes for different folks and all that. . . )

I have several friends who buy/download entire discographies (sometimes even of swaths of a genre), and they simply don't get around to listening to a lot of it, they often miss out on actually appreciating an *album*, and they simply don't get as "into" a band as listener's like you and I. Which is fine, but it truly is experiencing and imo appreciating the music less.
With all my favorite bands, I know virtually every song on every album. And I do like LOTS of bands, so I really don't feel limited at all. But the best part is the love, appreciating, and connection you make with a band (or person) that you truly know. In many ways I feel like it's similar to having 100 friends versus having 5 really good, close friends. I think we all know which type of person truly knows and appreciates their friends more. . .

Pretty much the reason bands still make albums.

Not always. But recently I was "stuck" on "Synchronicity II" by The Police. Listened to it for weeks. Currently fixated on "Molecules" by Aesop Rock. But when I'm in that frame of mind I do still listen to other stuff. Just that I frequently go back to those tracks I'm hung up on.

When I lived at home I would put the arm across on my record player. So it would repeat I could go to sleep but the record would still be playing.when I awoke I would somehow know all the lyrics to the songs, like I had been brainwashed while sleeping.it kind of freaked me out when I first discovered this.still do it to this day though no studying lyrics needed I guess it's a gift has anyone else experienced this
