High prices of cd's, and long gone are the days when a whole album was good....its a rarity now that you like more then a couple songs. Concert tickets are way up...even the shirts you buy at the concerts are crazy now! Its no longer about the fans, or the music for most bands. Its about getting rich...and the record companies are the worse ones! Its no wonder ppl pirate!

Shane here is right...prices steadily rose and it has been ridiculous. I heard of a concert that the tickets were 400 a piece. That is just messed up.

The altearnative of being able to buy the songs you want online, would be good. But unless these companies stop seeing only $$$ instead of quality product, we will always have bad expensive cd'S

I still wouldnt Buy them online I dont Support those who I dont respect and I never will. The Music industry right now is Dieing and its Great! Maybe they will go Back to What they used to do 3 album Plans instead of these sad 1 hit wonders When Istead of letting the bands Talent develop they just Record a Album Fix it on pro tools Slam the video on mtv and rake in the cash and repeat this over and over They make more money that way. Rather then investing time to make good music.

Hey guys. I am a big Kazaa user. I was sharing about 700 files as of yesterday. I got a message from the Canadian something or other warning me about how it was illegal and that I should not be sharing music. Blah blah blah. Just wanted to share that it is going to happen in Canada so make sure you copy all your recording out of your folders in your Docs. They are only going after big users so I am keeping mine to 50. Just gonna rotate them. Friggin Nazi's haha. How about all the unreleased stuff or the music that doesn't make it to Canada. I tryed to bring one in and HMV told me it would cost me $37 F'n dollars. To what ship it over the friggin boarder. They charge your ten extra on "imports".
I can phone up a store in Seattle and FED EX it up for cheaper and they want to tell the industry is so friggin hard up. It's the industry that cause this underground movement in the first place. Limp Biskit said it best "you just spent fifteen over your hard earned dollars on a shiny peice of plastic." Lower prices and then talk to me about what is fare. Cuz I would love to support the artists but lets face it they are not the ones that make the majority of the money of each hunk of "shiny plastic". So don't go hiding behind that starving artists BS. All the record company exects care about is get their new boat for the year! They sure as hell aren't going to pass a buck! And thats my rant! :mad TB

And as a contributing member of the recording industry, I'd like to thank you all for taking food from my belly, money from my pocket, and chart positions from my recordings. As convenient and cheap as it is to download MP3's, you are circumventing the mechanisms in place to ensure the artists get paid for their work.

Yes, the recording companies are taking the lion's share, but we need the % due to us as well. We're not all driving Maseratis, smokin Cubanos, and boffing porn stars. Do what you have to, but remember that you're not just cutting out the big dogs by sharing files.

Maybe if my residuals check arrives this week, I'll be able to keep my internet connection and still be posting here next week...

Alright Wuntu Menny. You made a good point of it not just being about the big guys but god damn am I tierd of getting shafted on CD's. Plus when I down load I download things I have never heard. I would have never even heard of the Vines or knew the Ramones ( although I have heard a lot of their music). It is still a good way to branch out and listen to more music. TB

Up for a Guinness in Calgary?

i dont see the big deal in this , as my friend who is in the biz said if your making millions of $$$$ who cares about people dl'ing
if your a new artist then hey its a great way to get heard
now i for 1 wont buy something that i have heard 1 song on the radio that i like, i will dl more of there stuff and if i like it then i will go out and buy the cd.

my other point is the artists dont make the majority of the money on album sales they make there money doing the tour and all the merchandise

i again have to say since dl'ing my music i have ended up buying stuff that there is no way in hell id have even given a chance to b4

just my $0.02
