^What albums are you listening to that have no filler songs? Some crazy quality control there to be honest unless you're waiting years in between. Even my favorite album of all time (Electric Ladyland) has at least one filler track.

Streaming / YouTube

Hardly ideal but it gets the job done.
No shortage of uncredited electronic music.

I don't buy much music (I've never bought a song that didn't come from Linkin Park it Fort Minor) but If I just want one or two songs I use iTunes. I buy a CD if LP releasing an album that's clean since I can transfer the music from the cd to all of devices and I like my physical Stuff. So CD mostly if its an album that won't be too hard to get as a CD. Otherwise I just buy from iTunes.

I prefer cds, just picked up Kacey Musgraves and Justin Timberlake's new releases today. The only time I buy digital is when amazon has those crazy awesome mp3 sales.

I either download it on my phone or listen to it online. CD's are too much of a hassle..

Generally, the only times I listen to music is when it's in a video game I'm playing or in a movie I'm watching.
Other than that, it's probably christmas music being played from an (Specificly, my sister's) iPod.

I used to travel the stars, then I discovered Earth, and these incredibly addicting things called 'Video Games.'

Nobody buys CDs anymore. No one wants to pay $15 plus tax for an album just so they can listen to one hit single. Everyone is much happier paying $1 for each song they actually want.

I buy CD's still, but difference is I usually spend $15 for all the songs and not just 1.

Same here. I buy tons of CDs and I can always appreciate albums as an entire experience. And "filler" songs are not necessarily a bad thing. A great band or musician can produce an album with equally great filler songs. Many of my favorite songs of all time have never had any radio play. And I'm not even talking about obscure indie bands or anything. Sometimes I wish I were a DJ on the radio so I could play all of the overlooked and underrated tracks. That's one reason that satellite radio is so good; you get to here a lot of rare tracks and b-sides.

By filler tracks, I meant actual filler tracks. Not B-Sides or even general non-single songs.

I'd argue these would qualify as only filler, and saying otherwise is really sketchy/pretentious in my opinion

Ah okay, I see what you are talking about now. Still, I wouldn't say a majority of albums have that type of filler song or segue. And even for albums that do, that's still only like 1 or maybe 2 songs out of 10-15. There are plenty of albums I own where I can honestly say that every track is enjoyable. And I'm not a pretentious music hipster or anything of the sort.

A mix. I tend to buy individual songs on iTunes, but I get a lot of my music through free (legal) downloads I find through blogs, along with free samplers (I'm working though NPR's massive SXSW one atm), and I also request albums (in the form of CDs) through my library system for a bunch of albums.

Digital downloads. I've never bought a CD in my life and I have so much music on my IPod now that I don't listen to much music on Youtube anymore. I've also never used a streaming service.

I usually just listen to it via online streaming, or buy CDs.

Depends on the artist. As of now, I have every album I'd ever want. Unless, of course, someone resurrects Freddy Mercury.

Just for you.

What is a buy?
Seriously though, at least as long as i can't legally get lossless quality downloads anywhere it's CD's all the way.

I usually just listen to any music on YouTube, but if there is an artist I particularly want to support I will buy and download some of their songs.
