for fear of disappointment or spoiling how special that one thing seems to you?
Because the Night. Nuff said.
if i like someone , i want to listen to everything at least once, if i dont like it then ill stick with what i originally liked
due to Illmatic's sheer brilliance. I'm sure there is some good stuff he's done since then but I've never really had the inclination to go there.
but I don't think I'd ever avoid material by the artist. I do sometimes feel apprehensive when an artist I really enjoy releases new material, because I feel like it really tarnishes a band's body of work if they release sub-par music as a follow up to the stuff you rate so highly. Case in point; Kings of Leon. When I bought Because Of The Times (despite it being nowhere near as awful as Only By The Night) I was really disappointed, even though it had a few good tracks. I still enjoy listening to their first two albums, but I can't help but think what a joke of a band they've become since.
