Just wondering What do you like more? A good album or good movie?
or both? Dark side of the Rainbow? :cool:

Also I find it weird I can listen to an album over and over again and it not get old but only watch a movie a few times before I hate it for a while.

There are some movies that I can watch every day and not get tired of them, and there are some albums that I like but can only listen to every once in a while because they get old by the time the album is finished. But in general you are right.

I would argue that the interaction is totally different. With a movie, you need to be engaged, watching and listening. With an album, you can listen while working or doing other things. Also, albums can be a collection of "singles," as is common today, or a conceptual piece, such as Quadrophenia, The Wall, The White Album, etc. The conceptual pieces demand a bit more attention, but not to the same extent as a movie. Perhaps a better comparison would be a music video or a concert on DVD.
