Just about sums me up.. when i'm after something new i explore by downloading, and if i like it i buy it, otherwise it gets the bin..
edit: on the "downloading because the cd is unreadable/lost/stolen/broken", there's no harm in that, you've bought the album, you've payed for the right to "own" those songs, so why pay again for something that's already yours? what's the difference between owning an album and putting it on your pc and owning an album and downloading that very same album onto your pc? none.. the effect is the same
