Do you still buy CDs? or do you buy downloads, or do you download illegally. I never download music, I always buy CDs, I like owning a physical product. :) Plus the type of music I like always has really cool looking cases and boxes. I don't want to miss out on that artwork. :) I know a few people in real life that still buy CDs, but many never do any more and they just download everything illegally. Oh well, they are missing out on cool CD boxes. :p

I still buy CDs, pjanaway, because if I really like an artist I figure I will like most of the songs featured on the CD even if I have not heard them yet. I have never downloaded any music-legally or illegally.

Yes, that's how I feel. If everyone just downloaded without paying for it, then no one would make music any more.

If it's a band that I really like, I will buy the whole CD. However if I go on i-tunes and sample the CD and there is only one or two songs that I like I just buy the 1 or 2 songs. It's cheaper that way.

Yeah, that's cool, but luckily for me, I always like all the songs on the cds. Plus they tend to be mixed together, so its a little pointless buying them single, your just get part of other songs mixed in it. lol

I never buy cds from the shops now, because they are such a rip off, and I saw a programme once about the cheapness of making cds and just how much us the consumer are robbed, £13+ for a cd? You're having a laugh! So I got napster and downloaded songs but now I pay for a subscription to download which is a very very small amount compared to the fortune I'd spend buying them. If I really really want a cd then I will go onto Ebay to buy it. I am not getting blatantly ripped off!

Whenever I buy cds they are normally boxsets and they have 3-6 cds, each cd about 1 hour 20 mins long. They normally cost about £7.50 - £13. :) I guess your into the wrong type of music. lol :)

I download a little to hear if I like the music before I buy the CD. I like having a big, beautiful CD-collection! Most of my friends never buy CD's anymore, but they are really missing out on some pretty artwork.

No i dont buy CD's .....the reason is i dont listen music much but specific very selective tracks so what i just do download them or give them to be copied in a single CD so i dont need to buy many CD's ............ it saves my money and time while driving ........

Several years ago, I would like to buy tapes very much. Very week I went to music shop to buy the new tapes of my favorate stars. When the online music was more and more popular, I like to download music online. But I like to buy some CDs which music is uncommon on internet.

I will download a lot of songs. I really hate to buy a CD full of songs I dislike just to have one that I do like. If I like a band a good bit then I most definitely buy the CD. Sometimes I will buy the CD over downloading even if I simply respect the band and what they stand for and their talents, even if I don't like all the songs.

I also buy cds when there downloading is not introduced yet.. I remember i had the habit of collecting cds with cool CD boxes and i place them on a big CD rack in my room.. It's like an art before.. But now i got lazy already and I prefer to download.. Anyway nothing is illegal here in our country when it comes to those things..(:

yeah i still buy the cds but only the music that really nice and i think it's worth to buy it for example cd album of my favorite singer from japan,CAN"T BUY MY LOVE BY YUI..Although i bought the album in japan because in my country it's really hard to find one,it's really worth buying it.I do sometime download the songs to see whether it's nice or interesting to listen.I don't have enough money to buy all the nice or interesting cd,so i just download the songs from the internet.If the song that i really like i'll buy it.

I get most of my music legally from Itunes now. It's hard to find a store that carries the kind of music I like. I've only found one here and the prices are great but it's an hour drive just to get there so I only go once every few months and just load up.

I have a year free of itunes, and sometimes people buy me gift cards for itunes or whatever, but if I like the cd enough I'll actually go and buy the cd so I can give that band or artist profit for their job well done.

Yes, I still buy CDs but not that often for there are a lot of CDs that are expensive. So, what I do is I just download songs that I like.
