    Yakking with someone about classic albums recently and this one came to mind. Haven't heard any of te track for years and fook knows what happened to mine, but I got one for 3.49 and stuck it in the car and had it on tonight. Probably haven't played it in 25 year but i knew what track was coming on next and most of the lyrics!

    Playing with VHS tapes the other day, listening to CDs today, i'm just digging the retro vibe man!

    I still buy CD's.

    Th last a couple of weeks ago was this...



    I listen to DAB in the car, but the motorhome only has an FM radio/CD and foreign music is shit, so CD's are king.

    I still have some cds, but only a few, almost everything is stored in the cloud.

    the experience of owning an album isn’t the same though, I used to love playing them through, knowing which opening note would follow the brief silence following the last track.

    That album was when i decided Springsteen went shit. He does have a new album out soon with the e street band so looking forward to hearing that. Cant be as bad as born in the USA can it.

    I got Liam Gallagher;s "Why me, Why not" a couple of days ago - gift from my son.

    Liam G is, of course, a complete dick but this album is quite good.

    I still play CD's a lot (and have hundreds). They are very good quality and I have a good system to play them on so why change?

    I disposed of 90% of my CD collection a few years ago. Lack of space and reliable cloud storage meant they were surplus to requirements. A lot of my MP3s were ripped two decades ago at 128K when disk space was expensive, but my ears these days I can't really tell the difference, even on studio monitors in a soundproofed studio, which probably shows just how much my hearing has deteriorated in the last 20 years.

    I rarely buy CDs now, I just buy digi and save the ripping time. My vehicular entertainment is an Android tablet with a custom launcher, there is a CD player in the Sony HU for emergencies but the HU has such an appalling UI it is only used as an amplifier and reversing cam.

    If I'm buying music it's on CD, it's then ripped and stored.
    No worries about cloud storage companies going tits up or not having a signal or wifi coverage, no subscription services to pay for despite constantly getting adverts for deezer, tunein, google play, youtube, amazon etc. etc. etc.

    Pretty much that^. It's then loaded onto ipod for the van and sheds. The only radio station I can get easily that I can tolerate is R3.

    TBH CDs don't cost much and they last a long time.
    Very worrying I find myself buying vinyl after dissing is not so long ago on these pages ...
    All I need now is a fade haircut , a ginger beard, a BMW based cafe racer and an obsession with artisanal coffee

    I still buy CDs as then I own the physical thing and it's mine. Of course I then rip them onto my flash drive and stick that in the car so I can listen to a billion songs/podcasts and then have the problem of where to store the CDs as I reckon I have over 1k. But I find it hard to get my head around the concept of just having an MP3 in the cloud somewhere.
