    they more a rip off than physical CDs!

    i download illegaly and quite happily as i just see it like request radio :p and its not my fault the radio has such crap on it these days

    i buy more albums than i ever have, only cause i can try out new artists etc etc


    napster seems best bit for legal ones, but it costs you to stream tracks, and then more to download and be able to burn

    so in other words, rip off

    costs mroe here than in europe and america even though they use the same computers, show the record companies contempt for its customers

    Just got Eminem - Encore from Tescodownloads.com for £7.99. Not bad.

    It would be far better if they were in MP3 format ;).

    Recording artists regardless of how many people download there music will always make money, simply down to the fact not everyone has computers and they still tour and make money that way.

    Yeah, same as Tecso's. I don't mind paying 8 quid for an album tbh.

    hmmm i like their system, but you can get full albums cheap if you look on CD, thats what missing from legal downlads why i dont do them, even if buy the album 2nd hand for a couple of quid, and then rip it, i feel "i own it" with a file i cant be the same, why i never buy software on internet either

    if i download a track without paying for it in the album or single, then i wouldnt of ever brought it in 1st place, so really they aint lost anything :p

    By the way, Beatport.com is good, no cheese there and their cheap. Plus you can burn to CD from their site in MP4/MP4/WAV. WAVs are the best because their mastered versions that come straight from the labels.
