I'm 95% digital now......it's sad but the fact is that I keep buying plenty of music but 95% of it I don't love enough to really bother with physical product and the small extra benefits that brings. I really believe that 99% of my best all time albums - stretching out well into the future- I already own on CD.

Since mp3 quality has improved it has become less of an issue too. I listen to most of my music at the PC (despite having a mega hifi system) and tbh barely 1% of what I buy these days can compete with the older releases I have on CD. And I'm finding more and more releases that actually seem to sound better in digital format , presumably due to tailoring production to that medium.

I'd agree with Troy in the thread below that most releases these days I find a bit of a disappointment. Take W.E.T. as an example - solid release and I love almost everything (and own almost everything) JSS has done. Having said that I find it hard to rate it much higher than 80-85% when I know deep down that it's not a patch on Talisman at their peak in terms of originality, musicianship, songs etc... so I'm still buying a fair bit of this stuff , but am not in love with it enough to bother with physical product . The only CD's I bought this past year have been Pretty Maids , H.E.A.T and N.O.W.
