I tend to hate my music if I listen back too much so I avoid it

You never quite see/hear what other people hear and I am sure you aren't going to whack off to yourself in the mirror unless you have some issues. Likewise if you listen to your own tunes constantly then there is probably something wrong with you.
Well I know this was written a long time ago but I couldn't disagree more with this. Comparing listening to music with pleasuring yourself sexually makes no sense so I don't see where that analogy comes from. Listening to your own music is a way to see into yourself more deeply... it's an exercise of introspection, a window into the deepest truths of your being which are normally impossible to reach. It has nothing to do with self-obsession or narcissism unless you're making music for the wrong reasons to begin with.

Only when I've finished a new track. I listen to it a few times then upload it to SC and listen to it a few more times and then never again :lol:. There are tracks that I think sound okay but I always think they're lacking in the sense that someone with better technical knowledge and skills could make them sound so much better (if that makes any sense). Usually, I'm loving a new one during the process of production and after the first few times of listening it begins to sound "meh, s'okay", and then soon after I will be thinking "what the fuck is this shit?" whenever I hear it again. Hasn't been once exception to this. But, on the brighter side, I feel I've progressed a lot so the shit I make is less shit basically. :lol: :D

My thing is having a song stuck in my head and trying to work it out then realising it's one of my tunes! :)

but then realising I have no idea what it was called or where I kept the project files :(

I can't really listen to my own tunes with out vomiting all over myself. Also I hate it when other people play them. Its probs cos they aren't good enough yet. I give it a few years before they are to any kind of standard that will allow me to listen to them hahah.
