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!

WINMX here. I've been using it for about 2 weeks now. It's pretty cool. Fairly simple to use. Lots of options and custom settings for really tuning your connection...

i find music from kazaa, and for some reason most of the music i like isnt in cd form (ie recorded at a party, not allowed to be realeased etc). I like almost every song i have heard but i hate the noise that comes out of their mouths, so i try and find the instrumental versions of them (seems very hard to find in music stores). If i find something i like i buy the cd (if there is one)...i have bought 2 cds......

i do searches like "music", "instrumental" to find new music, lots of crap and lots of half songs, but there are lots of good ones to make it worth while to me.

Used to use newsgroups myself, because they were always posting music I'd never heard of before and couldn't get my hands on. Now I get music from my brother, and if I like what I hear, I make the effort to find and buy it. I'll support the artist if I like the music, and if I don't like it, I don't keep it.

i like all types of bands thanks to downloading all their albums, i go out and buy em. just like every other music fan. you can support them and download them. thats a single minded point of view. i have over 200 cd's in my collection, and i got into every single band by downloading, im young so i have grown up with the internet, and i believe the best way to get into bands or musicians is to hear their music first, am i wrong?

I too would rather buy the Cd for a band that I really enjoy, for instance I have boughten 3 Sloan Cd's in the last week. But when I hear a cool song on the radio, I like to download it before I decide to buy the Cd.
Experience is a great advantage. The Problem is that when you get the experience, you're too damned old to do anything about it.
