As long as they keep making them, I'll keep buying them. Overall, I still find an mp3 to be incredibly cold and informal compared to a physical copy with artwork and liner notes that can be displayed as part of a greater collection.
I'm just glad we grew up in a time where we still purchased physical copies. Kids today don't know that same experience of the excitement of picking up a CD you've been waiting for and the first listen as you thumb through the booklet. That anticipation couldn't be beat.
I agree. I have a few hundred CDs and keep them alphabetically, still listen to them in the car all the time, or throw one on if I'm working out at home. Nobody can possibly be proud of an MP3 collection, hell most people stole all their digital albums anyway.
