Thats very common you hear it the first time and think this would make a dope flip and then it comes out like **** when you try and flip it. You just gotta keep at it. It takes a while to develope the ear to hear something and know exactly how you want to flip it.
I find it better to not listen to anything in the record store and just wait till i get home. Just pick those albums that stand out to you. And listen to every track I mean really listen all the way through.
