What setting suits your music listening experience the best? Do you prefer to listen at home, in the car, during a walk through nature, etc? Should the lighting be minimal? A favorite beverage (or two, Wink) handy? Do you read the lyrics along with the music, or focus on a hobby? Do you like to listen to music with others, or alone? Etc, etc... Give recommendations, share stories, anything you can think of.

Surprisingly, I found that the more elaborate situations don't suit me very well. I tend to enjoy music most when listening at work. I have a dull factory job with minimal interruptions. The monotony of the tasks allow for my mind to focus on the music without getting distracted.

I also found that listening to music in bed with headphones on works quite well. Having a dark room with a comfortable atmosphere really amplifies elements of slower or more abstract music for me.

I'll share more once I'm on a computer with a better keyboard, haha.

I very rarely get the chance to listen to music in an optimal setting as I have 3 kids who take up most of my time but if I get the chance it's headphones and travelling, be it by car, flat, boat or bus.

Normally I get to listen in the car or when I am doing housework.

The route I take to work is about an hour round trip, so I'll usually listen to new music in my car. Otherwise it's coming out of my computer speakers at home when I'm doing laundry or something.

The bath is the only environment to listen to music in.

Make a plunger coffee, grab a pile of CDs, stick the headphones on and chill out, mucking about on the forums or updating Discogs.
I do night shift so on my 'days' off I'm up all night, it's 4:20 am here now Cool

At work through iPod and at home CD/LP/MC through stereos. Not much of a "ritual".

Sometimes at work, though not for albums I haven't heard before. I prefer sitting in a chair by a window with art/lyrics and beer, or walking outside, otherwise.

I always imagine playing all my cool music while sitting in a huge old church basement full of old antiques while it's pissing down, awesome.
Actually I nearly bought an abandoned church here years ago but they knocked it down instead, it wasn't structurally sound I found out.

Shitty. Usually the old churches get converted to overpriced loft apartments for hipsters in these parts.

Friend of mine had a "no clocks no phones" room dedicated to music listening. I think we maybe have played cards once or twice in there as well, but that was about all that was allowed besides music. (And chemical enhancements.)
