Is there anyone that prefers CDs (and CD players) as opposed to downloads? Watch

Good job you like arcane texts, otherwise that would be a pretty small library

That sounds cool, but I'd probably do my usual habit of reading til 3am and I would then be too scared to leave =/
I think I would have a little alcove with a hammock to sleep in if that was the case. I like hammocks.

I really want to own loads of dusty leather bound occult books. I want magic to be real :sad:

I like owning an album physically, with the artwork and booklets etc

I really prefer vinyl though - it feels much more special

I do, I hate downloads. I don't like the fact you don't have a physical copy of the music, I like looking at the album sleeves and also, if all your music is on your computer, and then it crashes, you've potentially lost everything.

At least if that does happen, (or with me where it has a short battery life to play music on), CDs are great. Just plug in and play.

Exactly. I just hope enough people keep buying CDs so that they don't stop producing them! That would be a shame

I know. I still want them to be available when I'm an adult.

I like having the physical copy to add to my collection, and to easily play in the car. Plus, I just pop it in the laptop, and have it on my itunes too. Win win

I hate downloads as I don't feel like I actually own the music. It's just some files on my computer. I only purchase physical music like Cds and Vinyl. It feels good to be able to hold the music in my hands.

I like CDs. I like taking the trip to Rough Trade East in Brick Lane because HMV's ****. I like flipping through the notes. I like being able to lend them to people.

I prefer downloads. But I understand what you mean. I love the feeling when you put your favourite CD in the cd player

I like buying CD's, but don't buy from stores because a) ridiculously overpriced most of the time and b) albums such as "forever street metal *****" by Abigail aren't usually found in HMV.

I mostly buy from play or amazon, but the other day I got the doors - strange days and dio - collection in HMV for £4 and £3. I wish there was a shop in canterbury that sold loads of metal stuff.

I love the feeling of having a tangible discography stacked up in a corner but it is impractical when playing music on CDs. I am a bit of a flicker.

More recently, I've been downloading for convenience and because I don't have space for CDs at uni generally. At my parent's house I have this massive CD rack that shows all the different phases I've had (ska, indie, dubstep, Christian) and it's rather pretty
