As convenient as streaming is, and as limited as my music budget is, I still don't feel right repeatedly listening to albums I enjoy without purchasing them. I understand artists barely make anything off album sales, but services like Spotify don't exactly help them pay their bills.
It's a double edged sword for sure. I hardly buy any music anymore, and I feel bad about it at times. But, I've found a ton of new music that I never would have dug for before. If it translates into tickets purchased, word of mouth advertising, etc. does it become worth it? I'm not sure of the answer, but I am interested to see how artists, especially those that have come up with streaming, deal with it in a financial sense.
