Vinyl or Digital music is a personal choice tell me what you prefer? I’m all about digital music, here’s why? I can download iTunes from the comfort of my home. It doesn’t take up physical space. I can transfer it on to a bigger hard drive if needed. It goes to my iTunes ASAP! I can put it in my pocket 15000+ songs at the moment. It shouldn’t scratch unless it’s from a CD or Vinyl album. I don’t have to hook up anything to my computer to have it on iTunes. Apple’s website/customer service is really good & at the moment iTunes albums are cheap which is debatable. I can play my music endlessly on my home stereo & not have to worry about flipping the record over or put in a CD.

The only thing wrong about digital music/iTunes is it’s cheap for artists that need money to survive. Apple get’s a cut, the management/label gets a cut & the artist get pennies if they’re signed to a label I don’t agree with that. Even CDs have dropped in price to compete with iTunes. No thank you I already have 600 or so behind me in a closet all bought at around $25. In the end it’s all a personal choice I guess. I just don’t have enough physical space for CDs & I’m not a fan of vinyl with it popping, scratching & other problems. In the USA last year they sold 8 million vinyl records & they’re probably hiding now that the people have put it on their phone, iPod or MP3 player I’m guessing? There’s my take on the music industry, what’s your’s? Let’s start a conversation/healthy debate not an argument. There’s ALWAYS 2 sides to the story.

Only about 6 or 7 albums I would like, no FFDP is not one of them.
