Usually people just listen to music and like it to one varying degree or another or don't care for it / hate it. I find that when I listen to an album if I put a certain amount of devotion into it I can enjoy the album a lot more than I normally would. Devotion takes time though but sometimes the reward is worth it.

I do things like...
1. Creating a story and visual to go along with the music.
2. Focusing on the little cool details and exaggerating their effect.
3. Creating an atmosphere.
4. Listening or reading the lyrics.
5. Waiting for the right time to actually play the music.
Other things as well.

Discuss.

Yeah I listen to viking pop like 1% of the time maybe even less. Besides I was saying it can enhance the experience, not make it something amazing. And the depth part is partially up to you.

Oh lol. With that said I change my mind; I think there is an amazing amount of depth to songs about viking wars and the glory of the hero.

1. Creating a story and visual to go along with the music. - Only if the song really clicks
2. Focusing on the little cool details and exaggerating their effect.- Always
3. Creating an atmosphere. - Like Lord of the rings yes
4. Listening or reading the lyrics. -If I am curious
5. Waiting for the right time to actually play the music.-Usually if I'm thinking about it
Other things as well. - Never

I usually make a kind of story or mindset for it. I find it makes it a lot better I mean I can't do it for everything but when I can it's way worth it.

Also there are other things...
Do you head bang at all or other movement?
How loud do you set the volume?
Headphones or speakers?
etc.

Yeah I agree.

It's kind of strange but I feel like I'm getting better at liking music. I listen to stuff all the time but it's just part of life now. Listen when I get up...when I go to bed...through the day, before class after class, while I study while I day dream. Just something to kill the time.

I'll headbang if I really like the song at the time. It will also give me goosebumps. But usually the song will only have this effect on me once or twice. And of course I'll max the volume

Pop probably isn't the word I would use to describe that... but I thought you knew me better than that, I listen to some of the most popular folk metal bands and some of the least popular folk metal bands. I'm just a fan. But other than that I listen to so many other genres.

lol I will agree, a lot of folk metal has little depth. I mean, the music can have depth and be challanging, but they are usually drinking songs are stories about some epic battle. I don't need depth in folk metal though, because that is one genre that always makes me smile because it is sooooo cheesy and so many people make fun of it, but I thoroughly enjoy it

A lot of times I like to "listen" to music, rather than hear it. I like to sit in my chair, turn up the speakers to a fairly loud volume, and examine the music. I enjoy imagining myself playing a part, so it gives me an understanding of how difficult and complex a piece is.

It also helps to listen to a song more than once
