    I buy CDs as often as I can, when I can find it, as good metal is hard to buy in Canada. Once I have a credit card I plan to order from the internet, as there are very good sites which sell lots of metal albums for good prices (much cheaper then the 25 bucks I paid to get Fate of Norns by Amon Amarth at HMV). I like real CD's. Something about having a real CD just feels good. That doesn't stop me from downloading though, as that's the only real way for me to sample more metal and music from other countries that aren't popular in Canada. I only have around 7-8 gigs of music on my PC.

    I don't think it's bad to download, as others have said, most bands don't get shit for you buying their records (though every little penny helps I suppose), and it helps underground bands get more of a fanbase. Also, there are CDs which are out of print and hard to find, not to mention tracking it down from overseas.

    I've got no problem with burning stuff - I've heard way more stuff that way than I would have otherwise - but if I like an album, I make sure to go out and buy it. It's a matter of paying the proper respects to the people who made the music available. Also, it feels good to have the real solid thing sitting there in your CD rack. I've got a huge collection of CDs, and I love it.

    The good thing about burning stuff is that you get to sample a far wider variety of stuff, and it (hopefully) discourages record execs from putting a few good tracks on album, then filling the rest with shit, to spread the group's real talent over more albums. It's just a system that's open to abuse, sadly. It sucks that people do it, but that's human anture, I guess.

    Also, I heard someone else say this once: with the burning thing, we miss out on this: Remember the days when you'd buy an album for a few songs you liked, and didn't like the rest? But you'd have the tape or CD and listen to it through a few times because it was palying and you couldn't be bothered skipping through it... and eventually you found that you actually really like more of their stuff? You miss out on that if you just selectively pick tracks, and that's a shame.
