    I used to buy all of it from various online places but lately, I've been downloading some from other (free) sites:ninja:. I just wondered how many people actually legally buy all of their music nowadays?

    What i usually do is download albums and then if i like them i go out and buy them. I think of it as a sort of test run! I'm looking forward to having one of those really really big cd collections so i can be like my dad with his LPs though! I know i could just use spotify but those sodding ads really really piss me off and i'm not spending £10 a month just so i don't have them.

    I download most of my music. If I like it then I go out and buy it. I do buy everything my favourite artists release too.

    All of it.

    I've never downloaded music off the internet. Ever.

    I just prefer to have CDs.

    Oh and I'd never purchase music online. I had the idea of paying just for a digital file. I like to have a tangible good (i.e. the artwork and sleeve) if I'm going to pay for it.

    There is an argument for downloading music through torrents (because it's free) but I don't understand why you would want to pay to download an inferior quality version from iTunes when you can buy the CD.

    Most people use mp3 players and I presume they can't be bothered to physically buy/rip the CD.

    When CD quality albums can be downloaded for free in less than 10 minutes, how could one possible go out to a shop/order online and wait for delivery.

    Buy? What is this 'buying' you speak of? ;]

    The latest album I bought was You Me At Six's 'Hold me Down' from HMV. I bought Paramore's new album 'Brand New Eyes' prior. They're two of my favourite bands!

    I feel I would be cheating on the bands if I downloaded their stuff for free. So I buy it all (mix of CDs and Napster), but tbh I don't get much music anyway.

    one thing i will say about downloading for free, I find the concept of not having a song instantly upon hearing it retarded, like when people comment on youtube saying that they cant wait for a song to be available for download. Im all like wtf they're going to actually wait?
