I buy the CDs of my fav artists/groups ^^ It's a totally different feeling holding an actual cd on your hand than just buy it from itunes.
Also, I'm collecting k-pop cds (:

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

My mother still buys CDs. :)

I buy them if it's, say, JoJo, which is to support JoJo because I just love her music - she is so talented. I generally just listen to music online, but I have a CD collection from when I was younger.

I still buy the actual CDs, cause of my car and also to say I have that album and the cover art for it. Makes you appreciate it more, or at least I do.

I don't, no. But I did buy Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours" on vinyl because it's my favourite album of all time. :D

I buy MP3s and vinyl.

CDs, not so much anymore. But I am an audiophile, and have both my record player and my computer hooked up to my surround sound system.

I have a fair few CD's, mostly from local bands etc, but in the course of my work, I need to have a couple of 'reference' tracks too, to make sure sound kit is working as it should (this used to be invaders must die by the prodigy, but I lost that a few weeks ago).

I also have a few records for the same purpose

I usually listen to albums for free using Spotify. I do have an old Busted album though, that i still listen to, had it for years..Some of the other cd's i own were downloaded for free :rolleye0012: i very rarely use my money to buy a cd nowadays. I feel like it's a waste of money as i can listen to entire albums for free, like so many others do, on Spotify :)

I download a lot of my music from Amazon and listen through Amazon Cloud Player across my devices.

But if it's an artist I really like I will buy the CD, I go to a lot of concerts and usually get them signed. The last CD I brought was Songs From The Silver Screen by Jackie Evancho <3

The name of the topic made me laugh ! 

I actually still buy CD's sometimes, but it's a little expensive (usually around 15€ in France), so I ask them for Christmas, or I sometimes legally download the album when my bank offers me a 10€ Itunes card for example. 

 

I feel that we can be angry with the industry because the record companies take too much money on the artists' work, but i feel that if I like and artist, he brings me a lot of emotions so it's normal to thank him and buy his art. Even though Rihanna, Beyoncé, Britney, ther are all rich, well it's still their voice, their work, if I like, I buy ! 

 

However, as it's expensive, I usualy listen to music on deezer or youtube. 


Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself. 

 

Desiderata
