Picked up more albums from the place that's closing final trip I'm making there was today since they close for good tomorrow.

Leaves' Eyes- King of Kings
Portrait- Burn the World
Ayreon Universe- Best of Ayreon Live
Gus G-Fearless (already have this one but since it was still there and it's one of my favorite albums seemed like a fitting last pickup from The Record Store)

Also grabbed a few Comics from there and I will post those in the comic thread

Sorry to hear that your local record shop is now closed for good :(

Luckly you can still buy a ton of music new and cheaply off www.walmart.com,, at Walmart you can get a lot of good pop and rock as well as metal music cheaply going usually for US$5 (new) or more a piece. plus free shipping if you buy more then US$35 worth of merchandise  as of date of this post

Walmart only really carries albums that are churned out as shitty reissues/remasters, and cost nothing to make. Helping independent stores is infinitely more meaningful to everyone involved in the making/distribution of the music than buying from a shitty corp like Walmart

Some record stores I've been too in the past charge US$16 for CD's a piece or higher for all new CD's.

used record shops that sell CD's at least the ones I've been to. Are a little more reasonable but for me, the most reasonable prices have been the local flea market and Walmart as well as Big Lots.

But some of the Big Lots CD's may or may not have computer viruses in them. Designed to infect most likely Windows operating systems. I've had a CD greatest hits compilation refuse to RIP and it played with my disc drive, I assumed it was an infected disc or perhaps had software preventing it from ripping although I bypassed it, but later deleted the songs in fear of a computer virus.

I mostly bought used CDs which outside of special collections were mostly $2-5 from the Record Store only buying new maybe twice all of the times I was there. The #1 reason I don't buy CDs from Walmart is because a hell of a lot of what they have if they have what I want is censored.

How many more of you guys collect physical music? Right now and for years now is/was the best time ever for music CD's. Because most of them are really cheap new and used, but I think they are on slowly on the rise in price for the new releases as well as some of the older music. Walmart seem and Big Lots seems to be the least expensive for the most part as least some of their CD's are $5 USD

Music I feel will rise in price especially Vinyls, collecting new Vinyls a piece (today) as of this post, can cost you as much as 2 expensive CD's at a new record store. like $20 USD sometimes it cost more for a single new Vinyl record today.

And to mention some older artists albums are really high in price for a CD too, with some CD's going up to $30 USD new, for one. 10 or less song CD or Vinyl

I was planning to pick up the rest of the Coheed and Cambria albums I need which are Afterman: Descension, Afterman: Ascension, The Color Before The Sun, and Unheavenly Creatures.

I tried to buy these from FYE online (since the store here closed down), and they were running a 20% off everything online sale. Well, it would not give me the 20% off of my total. I emailed tech support and they never responded to me. This is why they are failing as a business. Who needs that hassle?

Sorry to hear about your struggles with FYE, Amazon and Walmart care about their customers, on Amazon you can take your case up with customer service by phone and you can talk to a real person live. Best Buy is good too but their products cost more. Some of the used things on amazon (depending on the time of hunting) are priced vary nicely, I like Walmart and Big Lots better because they are a cheaper alternative usually new condition but amazon has more variety and is better then Ebay in my opinion.

I've really been into collecting CDs the past few years. The good wills around me have CDs for $1 and they always have good stuff for some reason. I use the CLZ apps for IOS to catalog the collection and everything gets ripped to my PC in Apple Lossless. I have a Schiit Audio Fulla 2 DAC/AMP running to some Edifier desktop speakers and thats really enough for me.  Sitting at a little over 700 CDs right now with a big stack on the floor i still have to rip and catalog. I really listen to a little bit of everything, but am big into like 90's rock, ska, punk, and classic rock.

I am the same way, I read your post but I just realized I didn't respond. I use a sound card on my PC as well as an old 1990's stereo with an auxiliary jack, on my stereo and  a headphone jack on my speakers. Sometime I use headphones connected to my computer speakers as well.

Speaking of headphones those Sentry Stereo Headphones HM960 are really cheap and have great surround sound effect on them for only costing $10 USD a piece at some Big Lots stores. But the sound card really helps a ton

Yeah, but I usually try and support the underdogs when given the chance. I'd rather spend my money with someone other than Amazon, or Walmart if possible. Another alternative I usually turn to online is "Bullmoose". They have a pretty good selection, price varies but is usually okay by me.
