My problem with listening to one or two songs or samples from an album and then deeming it not worthy for purchase is that you often aren't giving the album time to sink in.

How many albums that you consider "classics" from the past became that way after many listens? A lot I bet.

If I just listened to a few samples of Operation:Mindcrime, Heaven And Hell or Virgin Killer all those years ago there's a good chance I may have dismissed them.

I have a friend who downloads EVERYTHING illegaly and I often ask him what he thinks of a new cd and he says "nah pretty shit man!" and I then say did you actually listen to it to which his reply more often than not is "I skipped through it" or "yeah a couple of songs" - in my opinion he's wasting his time even bothering to download if he's not even going to give things a few decent plays...

I'm betting a lot of people are doing the same thing and then claiming "there hasn't been any great albums in the last 20 years"...hahahaha yeah OK!!!
