    Which is Worse: Buying a CD with only three good songs on it, or a DVD that skips scenes?!

    DVD is worse. The CD has something solid worth of value, while the DVD has something of value but it has holes in it.

    The DVD. Especially if it's skipping all the sex scenes.

    I know a lot of people buy CDs for artists they support because they'll probably download an album(illegally) and listen to it but they want to support the artist so they also get a physical copy.

    a skipping DVD is.. broken. A CD with only a few good songs, still has those good songs. and isn't broken.

    So, DVD is worse.

    And, when people do purchase a song, they only listen to the one they think is good anyways!

    I'd argue that unless you're a blind fan most CD's will have only a few tracks that is really good or you hear the most. A DVD that skip scenes be they good or not is worthless.

    You know, if you listen to a CD enough times without prejudging each song, some of them might actually grow on you. It's not just the [carrier] singles/popular songs/songs that have immediate impact that are the good songs. On the other hand, a DVD that just skips its way through the movie [or whatever] is plain damaged goods [or is just plain bad].

    What's worse: Spilling milk on your shirt forcing you to go change it or pouring a bowl of cereal only to realize you haven't got any milk left?

    I do. To my knowledge there are no other good legal sources for lossless music. I'm not even an audiophile or anything, I just like having lossless files to avoid bad transcodes.

    Buying the CD is worse.

    Because it's a CD. Why would you buy a CD?

    I don't get why people are talking about how the CD with 3 songs might have the good songs on them. Absolutely irrelevant. We've been told the CD has 3 songs, not the CD has the "best" songs. If two thirds of the artist's tracks are bad on a 9 track album and you only get 3 songs, the expectation is that you'll get 1 good song and 2 bad ones, not 3 good ones.
