CDs all the way for me! Internet connection isn't reliable enough. I wouldn't want to pay out and not get it. Really like reading lyrics as I'm listening there's an added depth to what is being sung, get a real feel and understanding of the band reading them.
Theres also the excitment of getting a physical CD on first day. I got the first day stamp on The more things change. Was in there again for the Take my scars singles but record shop didn't have the stamp, he took them off me to try and get the stamp (regular customer). 15 months later when I got them back he still hadn't got it, 16 years later still pissed!!
The worst thing about a cd though is getting them on first day (at the over inflated prices) for a release of a ltd ed version later, collectors are then forking out twice - a lot of fans like having the full back catalogue (albums at least), getting those rare B-sides/covers/live versions.
The Blackening had a special ed version released a year after main release, I'd be surprised if many real keen fans didn't end up buying this copy as well as it was such an amazing bundle though, definately worth the cash - a CD and DVD extra - the UKs chance to get Seasons Wither on disc, covers, demos and live dvd footage as well. It could have been released as a special ed on it's own it didn't need to be "The blackening special ed".
You could make the CDs special for the collectors - only digipacks or something -The Blackening special ed was awesome, a digipack just feels that little bit more special than a bog standard CD. I'd love to hear some of the stuff that doesn't make the cut for an album, maybe that could go in the digipack, maybe a cover - Hallowed be thy name is awesome or some live stuff.
Just as long as I can get new stuff on CD I'll be happy!
