I agree. We should break the 11 /\/\in. piece into s/\/\aller parts.

It /\/\ay be a good idea to break so/\/\e of the other albu/\/\'s long pieces into shorter ones unless the track in question is listed as a 'short' or 'long version.

I can live with that. SST diversity is an advantage. I have to admit I found F13 even interesting. However listening to this for a long time would be a little tiring

It may also be the kind of track that would keep a store from playing it as their radio station. For me, they are absolutely unlistenable, but the rules are as they are. As it is, tracks from these albums seem to be in unlimited supply. I would enjoy it more if such tracks were considered "seasonal" and could only be requested around an actual Friday the 13th or as Halloween approaches. Same goes for Christmas music in July. I can understand the reason for the rules not changing, but albums can and have been removed from the playlists before, have they not?

 Posted: Tue Dec 22, 2015 8:35 am   Post subject: If the music on the album isn't good, and isn't listenable (which is different than just "some people don't like it") then why not remove it? I don't think there's a bylaw at SST which says they have to own or keep everything. I can think of at least one album that was never added to the playlist because it was "drivel," and at least one album that was removed for not being in line with what this station is about. The "seasonal" idea is an interesting one, if it can be implemented. I wonder what response we'd get from Resist_All if we did any kind of tweak to the album.

And sometimes even 'regular' scores have unlistenable tracks. I think we should not be more holy than the Pope and get rid of tracks that don't attribute to the overall listening experience of SST with all its diversity._________________ take a look at my collection: My album list

My two cents: I also really hate those F13 tracks, and am very annoyed that what's-his-name has just kept requesting them down the list for years on end. But I still don't like the idea of removing the album for this reason only. Like Cal said, s/he's not breaking any rules, no matter how annoying it might be. On the other hand, if it's decided that the album should be removed because, well, the music isn't any good, then I would support that decision.

I once offered to donate Kodo's soundtrack to the ninja action film "The Hunted," and was turned down because it was largely atmospheric, and I was OK with that decision.

Similarly:

If memory serves, LadyI, it might have been I who called one of your album requests "drivel," but I do hope it wasn't my opinion alone that caused the album not to be added.

The seasonal idea is interesting, but I imagine it would be a pain to implement, along with all the Christmas-y albums.

Playing dreadful music once an hour (or less) hardly breaks a man's leg or picks his pocket, as Jefferson might say. Perhaps the individual in question is lonely. Could starving that one of further attention be possible/productive?

This isn't a matter of trolling, just a reflection of my preferences. I don't have a problem with the Friday 13th tracks .... I usually don't even notice them. But if you want to restrict those who over-play something, let's go after all those folks who insist on multiple Star Wars & Star Trek requests every day ........

If you wanted to listen to a collection of your personal favourites you surely could use your media library or a non-community-based site.

 Posted: Sun Jun 05, 2016 12:29 pm   Post subject: Well, of course that's the point. But once you've heard the new thing, and decided you didn't like it, it can get tedious. Especially when it seems like someone is requesting it just to be a pain. I don't think it's entirely fair to write off people's complaining about this soundtrack (which is pretty, well, tedious) as resistance to something new and different. Then again, if Resist_All is requesting this because that one truly loves the movie or the soundtrack, then maybe this is all sour grapes. Of course, if Resist_All were any kind of presence on this site aside from these requests, it's be easier to know how to respond.

I really don't know what his deal with the SST requests is... but if people want to catch a real Resist_All for explanations and stuff, they'll have to head over to Death.fm_________________"Welcome to the paranoia club; cheapest fees in the universe and membership lasts forever." - Peter F.
