I prefer having physical copies of music CDs or DVDs because they offer a more tangible and interactive experience. Exploring album art and reading liner notes give me a feeling of engagement with music that isn't achievable with digital downloads. Even though digital media has its benefits, owning physical copies boost music appreciation. For me, owning a physical copy is worth the additional cost and effort.
@Dancer18 Thank you so much for sharing. I often use the AMusicSoft program to download Spotify songs to MP3 on my Windows computer. I have never tried to enjoy ad-free music on Spotify web player. I will try the Chrome extension you mentioned here.
