Album Sales Hit Record Lows. Again. : Planet Money : NPR
Who buys CD's anymore? I will just get the 2 good songs on Itunes for $2.
I haven't bought an album since the 90s.
I buy an album I want at the pawn shop for 2 bucks. Otherwise if its not there, I sample from torrents =)
That explains why Iron Maiden's new CD was number four on the charts. I would have guessed Guitar Hero because they are definitely not mainstream.
I still buy a CD from time to time if it's by an artist I really like and it's under $10. Otherwise I'll buy the digital copy on Amazon.
I generally buy albums on itunes anymore.
I do tend to buy whole albums, because I think, at least artists with a high level of artistic vision/integrity treat the album format as an art form in itself. The collection of songs, and the sequencing can often express a particular mood, idea, feeling, etc. I love a great album, and most of the bands that I like, IMO, put out enough good songs on each album that I might as well buy the whole thing.

I just bought a whole box of albums last week from a co-worker. There were at least 6 Gene Pitney alone.
Seriously. There was an original 1964 Pressing of Hard Day's Night on UA still with the shrink wrap on it (not sealed). Same deal with a Beatles '65.
This lady (his aunt) took really good care of her records and when she moved she gave them to him.
I was jacked! He's bringing 45's next week.
"And when your album sales wasn't doin too good who's the Doctor they told you to go see?"
Haven't bought an CD/album since 1999.
iTunes all the way baby, it's better than Paul Rhodes riding a unicorn chasing a jackalope.
