Music Hauls You Still Haven't Opened or Played Much
#1
You ordered a bunch of CDs last time, and they all arrived safely to you, yet you haven't opened any of them yet. Any reason why? Not enough time? Trying to focus on certain bands at once?

Use this thread to discuss music you've been neglecting to play for the first time.

Could also expand this thread to new CDs you haven't played much either (eg, some of the ones I've had for a few months that only got played once).

For me, I'm just too damn overloaded and don't really feel like listening to anything new. To be honest, if it was something I was super-excited about, it would've been ripped and played 10 times by now.

Also, my DVD drive is making strange noises, so I'm kinda afraid to put any CD in there (will be looking at replacing it soon). I guess if I do that, then I have to install the latest version of EAC (long overdue) and set it up for a new drive, which is something I don't feel like doing. So the process of ripping is just as problematic as actually playing new stuff for me.

I haven't played my Sword of the Far East DVD that I got about 3 months ago at all - but that's more because my PC's been screwed for a while and I don't own another means of playing it at present.

I never order too many cd's at the same time for budgetary reasons, so that never happens to me. I tend to immediately play them when they come in Tongue
If you can't get enough of me giving my opinions without having asked for it, you can read more of it on my Kevy Metal weblog.

I do my best to play things as I get them (and thoroughly too), but I think I'm on the losing end of a war of attrition these days. Normally I'd stop ordering, but that's kinda hard to do when there's 10-20 CDs a month getting released that I want. Also, CD ordering addiction. Tongue

I think I will rip the remaining CDs I have today/tomorrow - esp. since I have DVDs I want to watch, and that's normally when I do ripping.

I haven't touched any of my Japan haul, I just kinda left it because I was tired recovering from the big trip and they've just sat there for a few weeks since.

Historically, I've always liked to play new CDs as fast as possible to see if they're defective or not (leave it too long, can't get a refund). I guess ripping stuff via EAC solves that problem.

Yes that's true, EAC is a great tool, one of my go-tos.

I guess with new CDs, there shouldn't be a problem but I've actually ran into a couple that were defective. While I had some rather... abused CDs that played fine Laugh
