I very rarely download music and listen to it even less. I realize it's "just music", but unless I paid for it and have the complete package I just don't feel any attachment to it. Most of the stuff I have downloaded these days is just stuff I already own on CD. For when I'm too lazy to get up and put it in the player.

usually only download things i've already bought.

there are things i just can't get on cd or vinyl because of availability issues and only have files for, which is unfortunate but that's the way she goes i guess.

5% download


I had over 300 cds before mp3s even existed, so I have an extensive enough library. And now I have around 300 records as well. I have never been a fan of downloading. In the beginning the sound quality was absolute shit. But even more important, for me to really LISTEN to an album you gotta sit down in front of a decent stereo and listen to the entire thing from start to finish. Hearing a random track here and there where you never know of the sound quality of the rip coming through shit computer speakers.......fuck that.

I've bought a few digital-only releases, and I'll occasionally download something that's long out of print (usually demos).

1:5 I guess

I download several 2013 albums and I'm buying my favorite ones. The ones that I don't like I have them stored on my computer for future listening (interests may vary)

The emergence of soundcloud and bandcamp has taken away a lot of the reason for blogspot downloads (except for thieves and freeloaders of course). And they are not shit quality like youtube and myspace (so glad that era is over). More labels/bands should upload a track or two onto those sites.

If I'm going through a distro list I always try to find samples for stuff that's unfamiliar but caught my eye. I don't download full albums because (1) I'm on a "rural" internal plan and pay for every megabyte, (2) I don't WANT to have heard the whole thing already by the time it comes in the mail.

I live and work in China (only one more year to go!), so bandcamp and itunes are currently the most effective way of getting new music in an ethical fashion.

I strongly agree with these two statements.

At least you have access to a lot of Chinese metal. A lot of that stuff is a hassle to find otherwise.

In my bitter and hateful resenting opinion... there is too much shit available, good and bad.

I feel weak due to being weak apparently... unable to resist downloading cause of a curious nature calling to me to look into new albums, but nothing is ever going to be as gratifying as it was back when no internet existed and every album was a careful choice made via some flyer or catalogue shipped to you by some obscure distro.

Maybe by luck you heard a single song via some sampler and that called you to check further into a band with great anticipation (and you actually really gave it a chance, cause fuck... it took two months or so to track it down and actually recieve it unlike todays instant download and delete and move on availability)

I miss being stricken in awe by a new band (it did not even have to be amazing) ...the fact is that there was not 1000 other bands instantly available to compete with instantly, so the ones you did find you found more quality within because perhaps of the work involved aquiring said band.

These days bands are like beers, you quiokly consume the fucker and piss it out shortly after. A memory remains a little, yea it was okay, or probably more than likely it just becomes habit... bands today are just painting by numbers, lining up to be consumed and forgotten. ...like a drink, taken in and passed along and the next drink/album consumed.

since I signed up to spotify I don't download much music. I only did it to have music at work and when out. Nowadays the only things I download are old stuff that's just not easy to find.

I stopped downloading years ago. I use Bandcamp, Facebook, YouTube etc... to hear things before I buy. Some bands I buy before even hearing anything from their new Albums (Prosanctus Inferi, Grave Miasma, Immolation, Incantation etc...)
