Heh, most days I have some time at the gym, a 45 minute commute to and from work, the bulk of the work day sitting at my computer, and then often some time at night while either studying or playing a game. And it’s still never close to enough. I can’t hope to keep up with every new release, but try to at least check out the most intriguing ones. And of course there’s still vast amounts of older material that I haven’t heard yet.
I usually try to alternate between initial listens to new stuff and digging further into albums I already know I enjoy, but don’t stick to that rigorously. If nothing grabs me in the first spin, I usually won’t come back, so I’m sure there’s some good stuff I’ve overlooked by being preoccupied with work or something when I was listening to them, but oh well.
