I always buy CD's if available..I never got into the vinyl collecting, and buying digital music feels like I'm buying nothing when you think about how much music is available (even put out by the band themselves) for free online. I don't download illegally, but there's just a certain feeling that comes with buying a hard copy, like you're directly supporting the band. In return you're getting the music, the album art/packaging, and something you can display or lend out. It's materialistic, but it's all about being able to physically hold the music you've decided to purchase.
