So I wanna buy the entire Death Cab for Cutie album, and I was wondering if I should by from Itunes right now, or wait a bit and go to the store....

CD's have their benefits(making that cool rainbow with the bottom part), and the only benefit about buying mp3's online is that it's pretty much instant.

Should I feed the already-rich Apple with money, or give it to the crumbling record store?
As you can see in everything I mentioned above, I really want a freakin' disc.
But what do you think?

I'd go for CD.

download a torrent of it now, and buy the disk later today. win win. Probably not legal, but I do believe it's not immoral.

Always CD.

I don't see the point in paying that much unless you get to look at the album leaf.

Get the CD
Soon you will sit on the bench
of those who deny I have my soul
You sell a dream you create
Condemned by what you condemned before
Smooth are the words you sing down and high
Underground is your joy your laws

Easily buy the cd. You get the physical disc, real album art, booklet and...yeah. Need any more reasons?

Vagina's tend to be not all that great looking most of the time. It's all... flappy. Looks sloppy.

I'd have to say guy junk wins but not by much. It's like winning a beauty contest against Steve Buscemi.

CD, I heard MP3s from iTunes only work with iTunes, which sounds pretty ****ing stupid.

Buy the CD. Much better quality for the money since the mp3s are max 320kb/s (not sure what iTunes are selling, never bought from there). Then you get the album art and stuff to, and it's a nice thing to decorate your bookshelves with!

Yes, but you can also burn the CD and import it back into your iTunes.
Then you can do what you wish with it.
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

I don't care about having the album art or whatever, so I just download. And you can burn it onto a CD anyways.

This is good, I had the same feelings about it, I love CD's, I have some really great albums that I would hate to only see on Itunes...and sometimes playing CD's on my stereo is fun.....but ya, does anybody want my Green Day CD's

If I can't buy it today, I guess I'll just torrent it.
Limewire FTW?

I'd get the CD tbh, even buying one album can help the rapidly self-destructing Record Industry.

Itunes Store sucks anyway, Album art ftw

Get the CD, because you can rip it onto your computer, and then you'll always have the physical CD as a backup.

You can always get it off of Amazon.com as an .mp3

They're unprotected and higher quality than iTunes.
