Convenience I can see but price isn't always true. Best Buy near me usually has the cd's I want cheap upon release and if they don't have it the record store by me will order them free of charge for the lowest price available.

I guess everyone doesn't enjoy collecting CDs/vinyl, but they should damnit!

ALSO: People like my friends who claim to have "so many CDs" but 90% of them are burned copies and half of those aren't even actual albums but instead shitty mixes.

Yuck.
I much prefer CD's myself......seems they are going to go extinct however

I fucking hate how labels like Century Media puts their cds in those cardboard cases instead of a normal plastic hard case.

+1

I'm not big on the Digipacks either. Especially when they come oversized with a "making of" DVD that I'm never going to watch. I usually go out of my way to get a standard jewel case. Even if it means I miss out on a bonus track (because the bonus tracks are usually covers anyways).

Yeah most CDs aren't that bad unless it's something extraordinary, but when you start buying vinyl that's when it can get very expensive. I've spent an arm and a leg for some of my vinyl.

Amen to that. It still seems crazy to me that I have to go to specialty stores now to even find a good CD selection.

About 3 years ago my brakes locked up on ice and I ended up rear ending someone. Fuck driving in the winter.

Good lord, this. I don't get what they are trying to accomplish, except getting into an accident.

People that shout random band names at other band's shows. Last night at Iron Maiden, I overheard a couple of hipsters shouting "Pantera" and "Slayer" during a couple of lulls in the first half of the set. Shut the fuck up and enjoy the show.

Amen to that. It still seems crazy to me that I have to go to specialty stores now to even find a good CD selection.
That's one of the main reasons I just buy on iTunes, because I rarely am able to visit a really good CD store, and if I order them it takes longer.In the end I just want to be able to listen to my music, if I am able to get the CD then that's great but otherwise I'm not going to neglect something that's more convenient.The only good CD store in Georgia I've been to is way up north, and that's where I bought most of my Journey CD's, and I occasionally find something good in Walmart's and Best Buy's $5 selection.

Funny enough best record store I've ever been to was in Downtown Disney, the place was HUMONGOUS with two whole floors of nothing but CD's and Vinyl of every genre you can think of, and pretty much any band you can think of.First time I went there I remembered having to choose one of like 5 Stryper CD's, second time had to choose one CD of KISS's entire catalog, and remembered seeing all Winger's stuff including the Heading For A Heartbreak single.It was like 8 years ago though, don't know if it's still there, but if it is I would love to go back.
