It would be rhetorical if the answer was obvious and not very disputable. The fact is many do.

I do. Listening to individual songs means you're completely missing out on the album experience...good records are made to exist as cohesive wholes.

Additionally, as has already been pointed out, there's much less quality control in buying digital music. You get a cd, you know you're getting the highest quality.

It's worth pointing out how many people do exactly what you implied isn't done frequently anymore.

There is a fact that nobody dares to talk about: while sells may have declined...peoples interest to watch their favourite group @ live concerts have risen and thus the ticket prices have risen too.

Also, internet is an extremely useful media for advertising. You see, music gets publicity from internet...and then they can make cash from concerts. The problem is that...errrrmmmm..... musicians get money but publishers don't This is the system classical music has always used...and its still alive. Sure, its a sector controlled solely but the musicians that play..which is why there is such high-quality into it They don't care about money, but about the final result.

Yeah, its funny to see that musicians don't have problems (as they are the one that keep stadiums full whenever they make live concerts) but publishers, which are the ones that make money for every copy sold.

We need to get rid of this old-fashioned model: agencies are no longer needed, as you can sell directly your product through internet. You just publish your albom here, people gets it, and they will pay to come to see you @ live...and will probably pay willfully for some songs if you sell them at a decent price, and not this BS publishers do: "how much does the CD cost? 18€...and the digital version? The same". Yeah, right, I get the same product and it costs the same

If you don't already have a torrent client installed then yes, it might be a pain if you consider his music medicore (his music isn't all the same btw) even though it takes maybe one minute to install something like utorrent...but if you already have a client installed downloading a torrent is not difficult or a pain at all, regardless of what you think of the music.
