I read about a guy who had all his Empty Threes in one place and lost them all.

I only buy CDs of my favorite bands. I would buy from cirith ungol but its pretty much impossible to find them nowadays.
Besides, almost everything from cds to dvds to video games arent really worth buying... but thats the companies fault of making such expensive prices :?

A top quality computer game for PC has been at the same price since the mid 80s, $40-$50.

My income has tripled since then so its like the cost of games has gone down.

I also buy CDs and i also got into Vinyl recently. I despise mp3s, they're ok while you are in the metro or something but at home i prefer a fuller experience.
If you're not into Metal you are not my friend!

I still buy CD's. I plan on being a musician someday and I wouldn't want to lose money. And really, $10 for 12-16 songs isn't too much money for something specifically made to entertain you.

This band's pretty cool, but I'm not really too big of a fan of older metal.

Any band that would name themselves after a fictional tower in a Tolkien book is cool by me.

I was reading the book and then watching the movie and still was amazed when Gandalf said it :lol:

Vinyl FTW! I hared from my grandpa (that recently passed away) his jokebox and it rocks, also a big cardboard box full of ´em! I can finally buy that Metallica album ahah :twisted:

The Killers release all of their new albums on vinyl. I listened to Day and Age on vinyl with a friend. I was at this party last week and we listened to dark side of the moon and it ruled.

I tend to get stuff of the internet first, then if I liked it well enough buy the actual thing so that the company gets its money for makeing something so good. If it sucks, then hell no. this policy serves me pretty well.

See, people say that all the time, but it's never the case. They just download it and keep it that way, never buying it. You could listen to the entire album on YouTube if you wanted to listen to it before buying it, and that's not even illegal!

I listen to songs on youtube, and then if I like it enough I look into the band some more on youtube. If I like what I hear I buy the cd.

In some cases though, I just go out and buy the cd without thinking about it. This lets you expand your horizons a hell of a lot more, having to listen to something to get your money's worth. After a while it might grow on you, whereas if you listen before buying, you might just think "Meh, it's ok" and not listen to it again knowing it's just "ok".

I've been wanting to get into vinyl for a while now, but if I listen to it, I want an authentic experience. And it's probably hard to get your hands on a record player that's actually from its time. Plus I don't have a job yet so I only have $40 a month to go on like Bonn-o-Tron. Don't think I'm gonna be getting one soon. :(

Also, I'm really more of a 90's guy, with some 80's and 00's mixed in there, and a little bit of 70's. So most of the stuff I listen to probably isn't available on vinyl. Wouldn't hurt to look though ;)

I too plan on being a musician one day, a drummer to be specific.
