I usually download the album first. If I like it, I keep it on iTunes for my iPod, and then I'll buy the album, on vinyl if possible, if not CD.

If I don't like it, it just gets deleted.

About the same as Dies. I don't have a lot of money so I download first. I always want to "own" the music though

I download from blog sites and torrents but if I like something enough or I'm collecting a particular artists / bands discography then I buy it on CD. If it's something that I don't particularly like then it get's deleted.

Yeah I do a bit of blog testing. But mostly I buy stuff from stores on amazon and from distros. Occasionally I'll make a random buy in a store but more than often not.

what blogs, downloads, torrents, sites, etc?

I admit to using limewire and the like before but I don't like to do that. I buy from Itunes, but Itunes selection sucks for a lot of our music, especially the harder to get stuff lol

Sorry if these are boring questions but I was just buying Insomnium from Itunes and they really only offer one album and half the songs that I really like from them aren't even offered.

Thanks for the help guys.

Well, of course this blog is great:

http://504nola.blogspot.com/

But this is how I find stuff that I'm specifically looking for:

1. Go to google
2. type in "*band* *album* blogspot

example:

"iron maiden powerslave blogspot"

3. look down the list, and find the sites that are on blogspot.com (something.blogspot.com)
4. go to the blog, and usually you will find something like this:

http://metallica-laz.blogspot.com/2007/12/iron-maiden-powerslave-1984.html

Find the download link, and it's self-explanatory from there Smile

I assume you know how to use winrar.

There is always a risk of getting viruses and malicious software whether you download from blogs or torrent sites but I have to say I've never encountered any trouble downloading from either....well not as of yet anyway, lol. I always do a quick scan of the files I download just to be safe and secure.

LOL for some reason that strikes me as devious Dirty Gerdy. +rep.

I've been kind of postponing buying music for a long time now. Ever since I was about 11 actually. I planned on buying the things when I would turn 18 (privacy thing) but now I'm waiting until I can do it with my own money...

Still I buy some here and there. I try to get the ones I particularly like.
