Often if I read music reviews, I really wonder how often the reviewer has heard the album (if even at all??)… I know that I personally need a few listens to really formulate an opinion. I’ve had a lot of albums dry up in those first few run-throughs and turn into pretty bad stuff… and vice versa.
So, with every review posted, I’ll put the estimated scale in:
Not many (< 10 times)
Moderate (10 – 25 times)
a LOT (> 25 times)
probably too much (> 100 times)
