While I have used Spotify in the past and do use Youtube to check out new music or old soundtracks sometimes, I refuse to get rid of my physical media for the "convenience" and "hands free" listening of streaming. When I want to dig into an album I turn off my phone and listen to it on my Discman with noise canceling headphones; I read the liners/credits and enjoy the tactile senstations of experiencing a new album for the first time or an old favorite in a new light. (Side note: apparently SaGa Frontier II is absolutely ridiculous.)
I have all of my physical media ripped to my computer at a decent bitrate so for more casual listening and for commuting I just listen on my iPhone. If I can't decide on what I want to listen to I have a few playlists (strictly VGM, non-VGM, artist-based, etc.) so I basically have a specially curated Pandora-type radio stations that's coming directly from my own collection. It's all stuff I know and love and isn't just some "sounds like this" or "for fans of that" type of playlist that's being put together or aggregated by corporations.
Streaming is fine if you're into that kind of thing, and I do use it for new music discovery, but from a collection / archival perspective, it's terrible. People are going to really regret this in 30 years when they want to listen to something they used to have on iTunes or Spotify but no longer have because the service is shut down and they no longer have access to things they purchased. I spend way too much money on music yearly to not want to have a copy of it that I'll have forever.
Agreed, 100%. I will still have access to all my music if Spotify shuts down or if Apple Music restricts their content or if Youtube bans all non-sponsored music-related videos. If my computer crashes or my phone explodes I will still have all my CDs. I'm positive I've said this a bunch over the years, but there's still something special about collecting physical music I love that can never be replicated with an iTunes or Bandcamp MP3 purchase.
