    I love CDs. When I find music I like I buy the disc. Purchasing downloads leaves me feeling like I didn't get anything for my money. Nothing to hold, nothing to fit into its own alphabetized slot in the CD rack. And no album art! Such a great part of the music buying experience, IMO.

    Roadrunner Records takes a stab at providing a digital version of the liner notes by creating a minisite for Cradle of Filth's new release, "Godspeed on the Devil's Thunder". They call it "virtual vinyl".

    I like the artwork. I hate that you have to search blindly for the link to the lyrics. All-in-all a weak online effort, but it is interesting to see a record company address this element of their product.

    Oh, and I'm still sticking with the physical copy.…
