Isn't this what everyone does when they listen to music?



P.S. To all the assbags who posted the infinite number of spoofs about this scene, you can go straight the **** to hell! I just want the real scene, not your ****ty remakes that no one but you and your dumb **** friends care about. I hope you get thrown into the gorilla pen at the zoo and molested.

I compare it to movies: I don't watch movies and skip to the scenes I like, I watch the whole thing. Same with albums, even if I hate a particular song, I'll listen to it since it's part of the album... part of the experience. It's just a weird quirk that I have.
Well, you don't have to rip the whole thing to one file to be able to listen to it as if it were a CD. I mean, I listen to full albums all the time, but I still rip to different songs. The player I use (foobar) string them together seamlessly. Many other players do the same. When you have the different songs as files, you can do more than just play them individually. You can f.ex scrobble them to last.fm or rate them.

So, in other words, I can only see downsides to ripping it as one file when there are multiple tracks.

The only possible advantage I could see to doing all as one big track is maybe it takes up slightly less memory, but I'm not sure that would even be true.

My guess is that loading the single file into the memory for playback will take up more memory, but that the single file will take up less space on your hard drive .. by a relatively miniscule bit. But yeah, I'm guessing too!

Usually when you download a multiple track album and get one file, that file comes with a cue sheet (.cue file that contains info about tracks) that lets you split the file into the different songs.

All you need is a program to split it, f.ex Medieval Cue Splitter.
