So, physical media, huh?

Yeah, streaming services are popular, I get it. I myself use Spotify a lot. It's convenient - a whole catalogue of music at your fingertips at all times, fitting right in your pocket. Sometimes, you'll even get an algorithm that lets you stumble upon music you'd never even considered before!

Not at all to sound pretentious, but convenience comes at a price.

Artists don't get paid well at all

Streaming-only tracks can be removed at any time, leaving them without a trace unless someone archives them in time.

On the flip side, physical-only tracks can slip under the radar.

Tl;dr with great power comes great responsibility or some shit.

ANYWAY here's a list of my physical music collection or something. Excluding a few which I don't care about as much lmao.
