I disagree, I love having a physical copy of a CD. I really like bands who put thought into the art of their CD and booklet.

Ownership is being lost as digital distro takes over. Will Half-Life 2 still be playable when Steam dies? Will my iTunes tracks still work in ten years time when iTunes stops being supported? Its bad enough now that, as a Maccie, some DRM CDs already won't play on my machine. I much prefer to own something and be able to hold it in my hand. Otherwise we could be stuck with a future where entertainment is lost as companies and business dissolve.

QFT. If i love an album enough, regardless, I'll buy it. It just feels weird having the awesomeness in digital form alone.

+1 for DRM is destroying our culture(s).

Anyways......

If they charged $5 for a cd rather than $15 thru $20 I would buy my music, the cheap paper, ink, and plastic is not worth $20 and besides the money should be made from the concerts.

Your prices are a bit off, at least for metal. While some might be $15-20, most of it seems to land in the $20-30 range. God forbid its not published in North America and you have to import it and end up in the $30-80 range for a bloody CD.

My prices are accurate as I would never pay more than that.

I had to pay over 60$ for my DXM v1 cd but it was well worth it! :D
