do you consider memorization of a song/album as a prerequisite for really knowing and appreciating an artist or album?

for instance, i consider aquemini one of my all time favorite albums but ill be damned if i can recite more than a few verses from it while they are playinglol ... in contrast, i can rap along with dmx on its dark and hell is hot for the duration of the cd ...

your thoughts?

Usually after 5 listens of any album I have most of the songs memorized, my breath control is impeccable btw.

IDK everything I consider my favorite I end up memorizing or atleast mostly. I hold that standard to "favorite" in general. This word is used toloosely. You can only have one "favorite" hence the term. So to me I'd def say it's a prereq not by force but for the fact that I listen tomy favorite atleast three timesa day. Right now my Favorite album is "Ready to die." I've already listened to it two times today.

Naw, i've always been TERRIBLE at memorizing lyrics. I appreciate quality lyrics as i hear em, but forget em just a lil bit later. Doesn't mean idon't/can't appreciate albums like Aquemini.

i mean im pretty sure i know that aquemini is a better album than its dark and hell is hot ... but i dunno when i listen to aquemini i go into atrance or something ... i think for me, its a testament to how good it is if i cant memorize it but still listen regularly ... but maybe that sjust me
