The only thing that sometimes spoils the experience of hearing new music, is ridiculous over-hype. When a forthcoming record is proclaimed to be one of the "finest records of this genre" etc etc etc, your setting it up for a lot to live up too. Doesn't mean that the record isn't damn good, it can just spike expectation to fever pitch and not live it too that expectation.

I try to ignore the pre-release reviews, chatter on forums and even where poss, avoid sound bites (unless a band I don't really know and are in the process of discovering). I've recently enjoyed new music far more this way. Old school!
