I try to listen to a wide variety of music always with a different approach: at times I focus on one instrument only, other times I appreciate (or not) the whole production, the quality of recording, the effects choice, etc.
Enjoy your instrument at 360. Listen, watch, ask questions, try different things and don't be afraid to explore different genres and worlds. It won't always be a walk in the park but in the end it will have been worth it.
21" A Sweet Ride Brilliant. It's the all-around cymbal for me. Crashy at the right point, not so pingy and with a great, cutting bell sound.
