So i wanna say, before i lived here i lived in an AWFUL building, and i think it is the only reason i can cope because as bad as this is, it is nothing like where i last lived. I've spoken to my neighbour a few times, first person i met when i moved here, he's a pretty great guy. But my god this one issue of his. Also just venting, not looking for advice.

I'm more than likely on the autism spectrum so I'm super sensitive to noise, especially lots of, overwhelming, or constant noise, it causes me to have meltdowns if i don't get quiet moments to reset or peace in my home, i lose it. I have never listened to Meatloaf, i in fact do not like Meatloaf. However. I cannot tell you how many times i have heard Bat Out of Hell, more specifically its intro, which is one of the longest and most hectic noises i have heard and i hate it, even more so after hearing it so much. And i want to clarify, when i say blasting, i have had earphones on and am listening to things through them, yet i can still hear his music through it. And when i say he repeats it, i mean, he will repeat it anywhere between 5-20 times, like, it will get to the first verse or chorus, then he hits restart and starts it from the beginning and just does that sometimes literally all day. I go to bed around 10 pm, yet sometimes even when i am up until 1-2 am (i have insomnia) he will still be audibly playing music.

For instance, as i type this at 9:40 pm, he's been blasting music all day, he played Bat Out of Hell i think it was 7 times in a row, 3 of those times being the intro, the other times were the full song or restarted at different points. He then started blasting the intro to I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues immediately after, he did that 6 times and played the full song 3 times. He is into music and plays guitar and sings, it's a musician thing, but i just wish he'd use headphones or something. There was a period when i moved here, maybe 2-3 months after i started living here he was at his worst, it was literally every day, literally all day, the music was the loudest it had ever been and he not only replayed the intro more than ever, but he now does it to multiple songs but at that point in time it was ONLY Bat Out Of Hell. Not exaggerating, some days i heard that intro over 30 times, i used to literally cry when i heard him start playing it cause i knew it's all I'd hear for the rest of the day. Like, from before 7 am and until around 3 am, literally every day for a month or so he just blasted music, non-stop, the entire day, and would go through extended periods of repeatedly blasting Bat Out of Hell.

He's complained to me saying people have put in complaints about him blasting music, but he says he doesn't have a speaker so people are talking out of their ass or blaming him when it is other people, like, he is completely ignorant to it on so many fronts. Ever since moving here I've honestly been tempted to book a hotel for a few days, not to go anywhere nice, I'd stay in my area, but just to get away from it and get some peace. Honestly, if i have a future partner or go to an event in future and they play Bat Out of Hell, i won't accept responsibility for my actions. I've been here just under a year yet i have EASILY heard this intro hundreds of times yet i personally have never played it.
