    Do you still buy CDs or do you use MP3s mostly now? I use MP3s most of the time, but I do still buy CDs occasionally, especially when I'm browsing eBay quite a bit :p

    I still buy cds but then put them in mp3 format so I can fit multiple albums on one CD. Most cd players read mp3 now though I have been using ipods a lot more lately and have been connecting the ipod to the stereo. CD players just don't seem to last, i've been through so many.

    You could be the first. [​IMG]


    I buy CDs whenever I pass by the store at the mall, since they're usually on sale, and just rip them later so I can put them all in my iPod.

    I pirate most of my music, but when theres a new cd out from a good band, then I usually buy and rip it.

    I don't buy cd's anymore. Most of the songs on the cd aren't all that great. If you buy them from itunes, you can buy just one song from the album which I prefer.

    LOL at the pirate gif. :lol:


    I don't buy CD's very often at all anymore, they either get lost or broken, or they fill up my bookshelf. I prefer to buy MP3's/torrent my music nowadays, it saves me space and money.

    I pirate all of my music. Seeing as I have such broad taste, I would literally have to spend thousands of pounds to buy all of the albums I want. I might not even like them, so buying it is a waste of time; not to mention the fact that the money simply goes to the big capitalist companies that I hate oh so much.


    Now, if I really, really like an album, then I'll buy it on vinyl. No CDs for me.

    No i don't buy any cd's, because my music taste is very random and "old", so i wouldn't find those cd's anyway. I find my music trough youtube mostly.

    I only buy CDs for artists that I reeeeeaaaalllllly like and where I know that I will enjoy most of the songs on the album. Otherwise I will either listen to the song for free on GrooveShark or if I want to put it on my mp3 player or phone to listen to whenever I'll torrent it.

    I just opened several threads at once in different tabs and couldn't figure out why that song kept playing...it was the GIF. lol


    I only buy physical CDs now if they have bonus songs that I want and can't get online; otherwise, I just get them with my Zune Pass or Amazon.

    I hardly listen to new music now. And I can't remember the last time I've bought a piece of CD. :o

    I'm about half and half.


    Generally, if I buy a CD, it's because I actually want to have the physical CD, even if I don't use it.


    Perfect example, I bought Skillet's album via iTunes... and actually bought Within Temptation's new album from Best Buy. I didn't care to have the Skillet CD, but wanted the WT one.

    Cannot remember the last time I bought a cd. Although this isn't a good thing.


    The music industry has taken a huge hit due to the piracy and unfortunately we're just not seeing the quality of music that was released 10 years ago.

    I haven't bought a CD in ten years. I will buy music online from time to time. What I like about buying online is you can just get one song if you like without having to pay for a bunch of songs you don't like, and you also don't have to hope a single is released.

    Normally I really don't agree with copyright music because it is stealing and it does effect the industry especially if the artist is a small lesser known one.


    However my opinion changed because I used to buy music from itunes and then had a computer malfunction and guess what they told me? I couldn't redownload my music. So for someone who gets new computers on a regular basis this was not very pleasing to hear.


    Sure you can say I should go out and buy CDs but I do everything online CDs get scratced and broke and it's inconvineant for this reason I will either listen to music on YouTube now or download illegally till someone can come up with something or offer me something better that is secure.

    I still buy CD's. Most because I collect them. Both my sister and my dad are collecting CD's/DVD's and I also Collects games and such.
