Sometimes you buy a bad album, just like you sometimes eat ****ty food at a restaurant.

Most times you can return the food for a refund. Not so with music, unless you go to another place that accepts swaps... which you can't do with food.

Honestly, with the internet and Youtube, it'd be pretty hard to buy an album you didn't know sucked unless you were just being lazy.

Well that's true.

I'm not talking about spoiled food, I'm talking about eating somewhere and having it taste like garbage, either because you've never eaten there/ordered a food you've never had/miscellaneous situation.


Of course, most of the time I dine on the rats I can kill as they run by my box - by the way, I think Tom is getting suspicious and soon I won't be able to leech off his electricity anymore. If anyone wants to help me fuel a MacBook just drop me a PM.

this way of selling music would decrease artists dependence on record labels, which is a good thing, as the labels can collect up to 80% of the profits of a cd you buy at a store, which is clearly bs

i think a lot of people would be reasonable with their donations if there was a extremely easy and quick way to submit the cash (like a tip jar)

I think a better analogy is that you wouldn't buy a painting for your livingroom without viewing it first. That's why I'll download for the first listen, and buy if I want to hear it again.

That's just too much responsibility, for me. It works well with people who have the self discipline... but I just can't trust myself to actually buy a copy

This. I try to make the effort to buy all the album I really love but often in the store I'll ask myself "Why am I spending my money on this? I've heard it already and it's just going straight into my computer anyway". Then I'll buy something I haven't heard. That being said, these days I'm trying to buy most things on vinyl and/or at shows. Vinyl that comes with free mp3 download cards really are the ideal.

I do like the sounds of this "pay after you listen" idea though.
