Made the thread title long, because I didn't want to post the thread title as "That feeling you get when..." only to have people disappointed in the end of the sentence. I love when I buy an album based off nothing other than a high review rating, and the very first song is just pure love, right off the bat. The satisfaction of a blind buy gone well is one of my favorite pleasures in life. Sometimes I don't even bother checking what the genre is, just because it sometimes helps me expand my taste even more. I do have a short stack of albums that I really, really didn't care for, which I refer to as my "blind buys gone bad" collection, but it's quite small when compared to the number of times I've been happy with my purchase. Blind bought 3 CDs yesterday, and the first one I chose to play was a self-titled album by Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Turned out to be a fun mix of garagey psych rock with lots of reverb and super catchy hip-hop-like drumming. The very first track, "Ffunny Ffrends" made my whole damn day. So what I'm saying is, buy shit on a whim. Buy it because you like the cover art. Buy it because you like the band name. Buy it because you have a hunch. Buy it because you vaguely remember it getting a decent rating in some half-assed publication that you don't even care for that much. You never know what you're going to get.
