    no, i'm being serious, I never have...

    However much i love an artist / band / group and or their music I've just never actually completed the transaction to buy an album from store, I have thousands of songs on the PC anyway and hundreds on my phone but i'd realistically just never use a CD or listen to music like that - It just doesn't appeal to me

    I'd even rather play it through a speaker system with an Ipod or something but music on CD format just doesn't appeal to me.....

    I'm like the only person like this right.....? :cool:

    I used to download nearly all my music and now I use Spotify. I still bought one or two CD's though.

    I don't suspect that it'll be the norm in 10-15 years, but it makes me quite sad... there's something special about a new CD.

    I own a few Elliot Minor records, a single from The Feeling and a single from Simple Plan. That's It. The rest of the music I buy is digital, and they are on my computer as well as on an external drive, not forgetting my ipod.

    It's a real shame! There's a certain quality with taking a CD out of it's case, placing it in a player and listening through a speaker system of whatnot. Much like vinyls. :ninja:

    I like that... Mind you, I use the CD once to burn it to my laptop then play it off Media Player / MP3 from then on... xD But then I've always got a copy if my laptop or whatnot goes haywire.
    Vinyls... I used to call them "those big black round things" when I was little - made my Mum feel old. XD

    I used to download so much,
    but with spotify I don't bother.


    I still prefer CDs anyday,
    the physical form is better than the digital.

    I used to buy CD's all the time. I was another one who thought there was something special about buying a new CD - it was the only way I used to be absolutely sure of getting the genuine copy (before iTunes). I have quite a big collection of CD's actually. However, with them all being on my laptop/iPod, they never get played anymore, so over the last year I've converted over to iTunes and now I download new albums this way. I know I'm probably one of the rare few who actually buys all his music still, and I'm probably quite a fool for doing so, seeing how much I spend on it (I worked out the other day that just between September and now I've spent about £360 on iTunes!) - but there's something about buying it where you know that what you're getting is the genuine, premium-quality and legal version. For some reason, that's important to me.

    I know... I say all this and I'm turning away from the CD myself. :nn:


    Thanks so much for the rep, btw! Long live the CD. :p:

    I remember the first album I bought, I was 13. I'd saved up my dinner money for a week (£2 a day) and went to asda to get the album with the coolest looking cover I could find. I came home with American Idiot - Green Day, to the day its one of my favourite albums

    I just like the feeling of going to a shop and buying the music, bringing it home and sitting down for an hour to enjoy it. Sure, I could download it, but I find I get lazy then. It's just too easy to get, and I dont force myself to like it; if I dont like it after the first listen, Ill just delete it off my hard drive and get another one. I MAKE myself get the money out of the CD.

    Plus, I like the hard copy for when my computer fails.

    I like to buy CDs when i can, to show support to the artist and just have that hard copy & all that, unfortunately funds don't allow for buying all music this way
