    Do you still buy physical music?

    I remember a few years ago I started a poll asking for people's favourite music format. But as the years go by, CDs are becoming less popular, vinyl probably going at the same pace now that it was a decade ago.

    I still buy albums on CD (and the special few I get on vinyl too) and for the Gallaghers and a select few others I will buy all the singles on whatever formats they release physically. But I'm much more likely to get an EP or single from iTunes compared to years back when I'd get everything on CD.

    And yes I know some of you will get it all for free but let's not have the mods shutting us down eh

    I don't think I've ever actually bought a CD in my life. I've had a couple bought for me, and I think I used a gift voucher to get one once which almost counts I suppose.

    EDIT: Oh, and I've bought CDs for other people as well. But yeah, firm no for me.

    Same as PEWS. Have exchanged CDs as gifts, and had my parents buy me a few when I was kid, but that's about it. I think I must have been about 12 when Napster got taken down, so I've been downloading music for at least as long as I've had any concept of taste.

    It's quite hard to make a standardised average for music.

    And in answer to the question. I think I've bought about four or five CDs ever, and none for as long as I can remember. In most circumstances I'd only listen to a couple of songs on a specific CD and so it's not worth the cost. Added to that, it's much quicker to download it all, rather than mess around with putting CDs in and out of laptops.

    Copyright is a dinosaur. Downloading ftw.

    Last time I bought a CD in a shop must have been when I was in 6th form, which was in 2006.

    The music you listen to only available to listen to when you flush the toilet with your left hand IIRC

    Guess I have somewhere between 900-1000 albums on CD now. I've never got past having something tangible to hold.

    Can't beat browsing in a record shop either, IMHO. Seeing a bargain still gives me a buzz.

    If you saw His 'n' Hers for 3 would you buy it? Assuming you don't own it already that is.
