What are the pro's and con's of pre ordering cd's? Any positive experiences? I pre ordered the parallax 2 and here i am with a feeling simar to major blue balls. The cd didnt come on the release date. Whats the point in pre ordering if i could have gone and bought it cheaper at the store?

Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.
I had the blankest year,
I watched life turn into a TV show.
It was totally weird.

Often times preorders come bundled with some other rad stuff like shirts.
Also, as far as I've heard, sometimes they arrive before the release date.

That's about it for the pros, I think. I usually just buy my CDs in the store unless I really like the preorder bundle.

I only buy vinyl now. I'll pre order an album if it gets me a limited color. If not, I'll generally wait.

Some websites offer extra stuff when you pre order CDs. I've gotten free posters, and even a few free 7" records for pre ordering CDs.

I've preordered albums before, and they've come a couple of days before release. Recently I preordered an album and it took about 4 days after release to arrive.

Pros and Cons right there.

I've preordered the new Paul Gilbert album. It's out on monday so hopefully i'll get it saturday.

Some of us like to actually have a physical copy. I like having the insert with all the lyrics and pictures.

Don't be getting all butthurt lol

I do like having CD's however my pennies can't handle my OCD of having a full band's discography so I have stopped (at least until I win the lottery) buying CD's

I don't tend to buy a lot of cds, I get the ones from my favourite bands and just listen to the rest on Spotify. Got most of my cd's stolen too
