    I've decided to try and stop downloading as much and buy more CDs, but not sure where the cheapest place is. Is there anywhere I can get them cheaper than Amazon or Play?
    Recent/chart albums mainly.

    Amazon/Play tend to be the most competitive. This site is also sometimes helpful:

    That's a completely useless recommendation - the OP explicitly says he/she wants to download less.

    If it's the moral issue of downloading you object to, it would arguably be better to buy the occasional CD directly from a band at their gigs/websites and download everything else, rather than buy everything from Amazon (even if individual items are cheaper there). That way, bands you like get a larger amount of money by cutting out the middleman, you still get to listen to everything you want, pay less in total and everybody wins (except the record companies and Amazon, but that's no major loss)!

    I find that Tesco are cheapest with new releases. If not, try ebay. There are plenty of new CD's on there from people getting them as unwanted gifts etc.

    I used to buy a lot of second hand ones from CEX or ebay for £1-5 each, they all played completely fine.

    Fopp is also awesome. There's one in Covent Garden/Tottenham Court Road.

    I've bought quite a few used albums from Amazon for £1.25 inc postage. They're usually only that cheap if they're a few years old though.

    amazon marketplace is where i've found the best albums. For new releases look towards play.com or amazon generally. They're usually the cheapest. Play.com usually wins because of its free p&p.
