TOR...track oriented rock

Hi zappacosta,

I'm not sure about it but I think I wrote the post you were referring to about e.g. preferring 3 great tracks + 10 fillers above 13 "good to average" tracks..

and I still think like that....how often don't you listen to an album thinking, well there are some very good tracks but the total picture is not that good...an example:

A couple of weeks ago I bought Kelly Keagy's album and I really liked about half of the songs, the other half didn't do anything to me...I decided to use the program function of my CD player (which I hadn't used in quite some time) and just selected these 5 tracks...I can tell you, now I am listening to the best maxi-CD of the year !!!
(this also works very well with the Seventh Key album)

I can understand that people have different vision about this...but I'm always looking for excellent "tracks", not albums....so I'm more into TOR (track-oriented-rock) than AOR (assuming the A stands for "album", but I don't want to start that discussion again)...

To answer your initial question about how many tracks: this depends on the price of the album, but 2 or 3 absolutely brilliant tracks are worth 16 euro to me....


Greetings (from Belgium)
