Well, I simply don't have any free space in my room anymore to store my precious CDs (who also have to compete for shelf space with books and collectibles). I also have trouble trying to get rid of CDs that I don't really listen too, cause every one has at least one or two songs I really like and I don't have the heart,

But naaah, there can't be too much music,

I listened to myself and went cd shopping. Picked up the new releases from Sting, Mary J Blige and Warren Zevon. I'm in my happy place.

I know exactly what you mean, SoulfulMofo. I just ordered 4 CDs at one time and thought, geez, that's a mistake. Now I'll get a feel for 4 new things instead of really taking one in deeply. I think this syndrome is connected to the intensity of media in general, the constant assault on our senses which scatters our attention and ability to focus on one thing, creating a false sense of always needing the next thing before the thing in front of us is absorbed. Also, back in the days of albums it was too much trouble to get up and move the needle to skip a song I didn't like so I really listened to records beginning to end. Now if I'm in the kitchen cooking while music is on, I have the remote control with me and with a click I can skip songs. It's like too much music has created music ADHD or something.

if it gets to the point where it is overwhelming, it can't be enjoyed. if you dont enjoy your current music situation, it must be changed somehow so you dont end up not enjoying it.
music is made to be listened to and loved. take care of it, nurture it!

and water once a day...
or not.

i am in the too much and not enough boat. i am overwhelmed and confused.

You can never own too many CD's.

C ya!

I don't know about the things I said before... Last weekend I moved my CD's to my new house. Despite having bought 2 CD-racks (for 180 CD's each) I still don't have enough space to store them all. So maybe it is possible to have too many CD's...

It's not about how many you own. It's about how many you listen to. I don't trust someone who listens to a cd once and can say it's good. I'm more interested in the record someone insists you get because it's so amazing they're on their 3rd cd because of use or sharing. Those are the fucking sweet ones. The trend buys just seem to gather dust after a month. I've got a music industry buddy w/ 2,000+ cds, yet when we're on a road trip listening to a mix I made he'll be like "who's this?", I'll tell him, and remind him he OWNS the record.
