Then he shouldn't have been so specific.

And that would have been just as stupid a question.

Exactly, instead of buying it why can't people just download it?

Really?

Many people do actually have qualms about downloading music illegally.

Do you think the police is gonna show up at your door and arrest you for downloading an album through a torrent site?

No, and I'm not even saying that I don't do it, myself.

I'm just baffled by your question. I'm pretty sure that's the reason that people buy music ditigally.

I'm sure there are some people who don't know how to find and download an album for free online, but it should not be the least bit surprising that not everyone is interested in illegal downloading.

Some people actually think that artists should be compensated for their craft.

And don't give me the pat "the labels take it all anyway" response. A percentage of something is better than a percentage of nothing.

Why would it be just as stupid of a question?

It's my understanding that illegally downloading music is becoming easier and easier.

Legal or illegal, I've never feel that I actually own the music if I've downloaded it from the internet.

Because a lot of people here really really like music and enjoy spending money on it...?

It is, and I download illegally, but why the hell are people all of a sudden that others are buying?

It isn't a question of being able to download. It's about having respect for the artist who made the music you love.

For the record, I also download illegally (a lot) but I try to buy the albums I like.

Car dude, you seem to be suggesting that we buy because we're afraid of the repercussions of illegal downloading. I mean, scumbo's a pretty good shot with a musket, but that's so not the reason.

Yes, but not everyone thinks it's right or okay to do so. And that shouldn't be a surprise.

That's why "why not just download it for free somewhere" is a stupid question.

Definitely I'm not doubting it. I'm just saying that over the past decade there's been a severe drop in the percentage of people who continue to buy the music. I'm not questioning whether or not more people buy music than illegally download it. Just pointing out that illegal downloads are going up and legal ones are probably going down.

Anyway I came in here to say that this is not a headphones-on-the-train album. Best enjoyed blasting from speakers I think.
