Used to be an emusic subscriber but that site took a serious nosedive in a lot of different ways. Every so often now I'll buy something on Amazon or Bandcamp. For the most part though, I'd prefer laying out a few extra bucks for a physical copy, if one is available.

It amazes me to see stuff on Amazon where the album on MP3 costs 7.99 and the cd can be bought "new and used from" 2 or something ridiculous

Bandcamp! All money goes straight to the band/label and they have great package options. So user friendly, too.

I never do it, I think paying for mp3s is rather ridiculous. But then again that's just my opinion.

I bought one song from the new Mechina album Empyrean. I prefer buying the physical CD though.

Yep, mp3s are just a means to check out new things. Then I'll spend money on physical copies of anything I like.

Bandcamp is pretty good for streaming though.

I would only consider purchasing mp3s if there's no physical copy available.

Well, at least in Bandcamp the material can be downloaded in various formats, like wav or flac, so you can download it as cd-quality instead of mp3.

Bought from iTunes and Bandcamp. I'm not hugely hung up on the whole physical thing, I like records but I have no problem handing a buck over for a song on my phone (especially if it's the only song I like)

If the CD price managed to get that low, most probably nobody will pay 8 Pounds for a download either.

Indeed! Also you can choose the format of the download, which is something that makes Bandcamp better than CDbaby, for example.

That's pretty much my policy now. I have a handful of albums that have never and likely will never been released physically, so I pay for the download instead. For a while I was consuming more stuff digitally, when I was on emusic, but the reason was that emusic was pretty cheap and I felt like I was still supporting the bands and labels - and back then they were indie-centric so it really seemed like it was bands and labels that needed the support. Since then they've jacked up their prices, added a lot of major labels and eliminated a lot of the small ones, so fuck 'em.

i can't get around digital downloads, would rather just buy something physical and tangible.

And i'm going to look at it this way...if a band's releases are for sale digitally but not physically...this is not a band worth hearing, especially when so many amazing bands are putting out physical albums still, and even more so there's enough physical music currently in existence that i wouldn't even be able to listen to it all, so there will always be another band to get.

The only digital release I bought was Spectral Haze's demo.
