Whenever I see WDADU I mentally pronounce it as "Wuh-dah-doo". Is that controversial? Is that even an opinion?
I kinda do that too. Also pronounce SFAM "S-Fam"

No and no.

Fact:  "Whenever I see WDADU I mentally pronounce it as 'Wuh-dah-doo'." (as do I, BTW)
Opinion:  "WDADU is DT's best album."


I don't do any of these out loud, but in my head:

wuh-DAH-doo
A-kos
ESS-fam
six-doit or ess-doit
tot
add-toh
dot

For the albums not mentioned, I will occasionally pronounce the letters straight (e.g., eight-vee-em or dee-tee-twelve) or just use the actual name.

I mentally associate in my head the acronym to the album and that's all. I mean, when I see the word "red" I don't have to translate it in my head to the name of that colour in my language, I know what the word means. Same with "FII" for example.

The only exception is SFAM, in my head I read it / mentally pronounce it the way it's written. It does not rhyme with "ham" however, I mentally-pronounce it the italian way where the A sounds like in "drama".
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

The only album I do that for is ADTOE (add-toe) which is a very bad acronym for what I originally found to be a bad album title. I have since made peace with add-toe and actually like the title A Dramatic Turn of Events which is pretty off the wall and I still don't think is a great title but sort of symbolizes the band turning a corner and is my favorite DT album
