Picture of my collection in October 2016:


I also have a lot of digital releases (as in, legally purchased downloads). To be honest, I am starting to move in this direction over vinyl: I care much more for music than format. My day job is in software engineering, and thanks to the Discogs API, that's enabled me to build a lot of automation to make my digital collection easy to add to and maintain; I can import a digital release - fully tagged and so on - more or less with a single keystroke. I don't really have any interest in things like Spotify. These are great tools for more casual music listeners, but to me, it's infinitely more satisfying to maintain my own digital collection.

General Interests
=============
I'm really open minded about music and will give anything a try, but I'm particularly fond of this kind of stuff (in no order, except the first item):
Legowelt and all aliases (without a doubt my all time favourite artist), Ambient/Drone/Experimental, Techno, Acid, Old School Hip Hop & Electro, Old School Techno/Hardcore (R & S and the like), Electro (stuff like Drexciya, not shitty 'Electroclash' or 'Electro House' or any of that pish), Detroit Techno, Chicago House, Disco, Early Electronic/Musique Concrète/Tape Manipulation (BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Tod Dockstader, Xenakis etc.), Aphex Twin and all aliases, 60s/70s Krautrock, 60s/70s Psychedelic Rock, 60s/70s Italian Prog, Industrial (though more stuff like Throbbing Gristle, Severed Heads, Skinny Puppy etc., as opposed to Nine Inch Nails or stuff like that), Library Music, Soundtracks (especially horror), Italo Disco, Jazz, Exotica (like Martin Denny)...

I stopped collecting music for around 3 or 4 years, but I'm now back into it with a passion. Right now, I'm trying to complete a lot of excellent stuff I missed, but I'm also slowly keeping abreast of new stuff; in the near future, I'm going to put a lot more effort into identifying good new stuff.

Ratings
======
First, I just want to say, I love the fact that Discogs allows users to rate releases. Over time, you can use it to identify other users who have a similar taste to you, with the result that you can then generally rely on other releases they've rated 4 or 5. The 1 to 5 rating scale is fine and works well for a site like Discogs, but it does mean a bit of a limit in terms of expressing what you think. Here's my rating scheme:
5/5: I will rate an album 5 if every track is amazing, or if there are several tracks on the album that stop and make me think, "wow, this release is really worth having in my collection." Same applies to 12 inches, but on a lower scale. If there's 1 amazing track among 3 or 4 tracks on the record, I'd still be inclined to rate 5.
4/5: Very good or good, though perhaps I might not come back to it that often.
3/5: Meh. Would sell.
2/5: Awful. Would sell in a heartbeat.
1/5: As per 2, but maybe there's something wrong with the pressing or something like that. I don't think I've actually used this rating yet.

Yet another incredible release. Ian Martin is seriously one of the most underrated ambient producers in the world. From start to finish, this album is just phenomenal. Wish I had been quick enough to snap up the CD, but happy enough to buy the digital ... See full review
