I currently use a news service called XNEWS for most of the music + others. And I do agree that if I find an album I like I go out and pick up a copy to help support the artist. I like the idea of being able to try before you buy.
When I was younger I had a massive collection of Lp's( for the younger one's out there this was the media of choice for music back in the day, before cassettes Music was recorderd onto a vinyl disc that was about 14" in diameter, needed to be played on an turntable wth a needle) and hated going out and buying something to find out it sucked!
O' the wonderfull technology!
