I frequently read or hear about musicians who claim not to be able to listen to their own music. Every time I think about it, I can't make sense of it. As evident at Last.fm, I am the exact opposite. I listen to Pleasure Unit all the time. When asked about it in the past, I've usually responded with "someone has to." ;)

But seriously, I listen to the music of which I've been a part because I'm proud of it. I can't imagine investing the effort or the emotion and then completely writing off the result. But maybe that just means I'm not a real artist.
