For people who have one of these services, do you still buy music? I usually buy music so the bands get money, and I feel like they don't with services like spotify. I don't buy a ton of music, probably an album or two a month, but that is still more then 95% of people I know. I feel like most people my age, 20, have not purchased an album in years if ever.
I used to average 3-4 CDs a month. Now? I buy way less, maybe that cut down to 1. It doesn't help though that I don't have room for my collection at my new apartment (hundreds of CDs). Plus it's just easier to carry all on my phone without transferring through a computer. And I refuse to buy digital versions of music unless its unavoidable (Blink EP for example).
I still love buying new CDs but its great to be able to check out anything. I've gotten into many bands I wouldn't have otherwise, since I have up pirating music 5 years ago.
I hope Rdio survives. I really do
