How big is your metal collection?

150, all purchased, mostly metal, but a lot of ska and punk, too. And U2, DMB, Sting, Pumpkins, etc.
I'd never expect to meet another DMB fan in here! DMB is one of my favorites. Before These Crowded streets is one of the best albums I've ever heard!...
All of my cd's are original. I am not into burning cd's and must have the original of the albums I own. I keep records in my computer so I figured I would just post my whole collection. It is all in the vein of metal ranging from traditional metal to hard rock to hair metal to thrash to power to black to progressive to whatever, it all has to do with hard rock and metal. If any one album is listed twice it most likley means I have the original and remastered versions of that album.

Total CD's 462

Metal CD's: 600+ or around

I own over 1100 CD's though. Have Rock, Jazz, Classical, Experimental......ect.
not big enough. I've probably got about 80 CD's that i have in my racks but have more that i'm ashamed of owning. Due to lack of funds i unfortunately resort to downloading the albums, but i never burn them to CD-R.

once i git a job then i'll be buying at least 2 albums a week.
i've got probably 600+ metal albums and i've probably bought about 300 of those. i think i have around 1600 albums right now.

i've bought probably a total of 800 cds and the rest have been ripped/burned from friends or leeched from people.

i'm sitting at 99.x gigs of mp3s right now.
because i'm poor and can't afford to buy cds anymore. with rent, car payment, bills and food i pretty much spend all the money i make. if i am able to get some money together i will pick some up though. it's just that there's other shit that i have to put before buying music.

if i do find a band i really like i will buy their stuff though. i usually only download one or two albums from a band and then i'll buy them if i like them. i've got a lot of stuff that i wouldn't buy anyways so it doesn't really matter.

We need to get you a better job it looks like :D

-metal forever-

i'm working on it. i've also got a Bug that i'm building so that's taking some money. come March, i should be moving into an apartment that'll be a few hundred a month cheaper so that'll help with it all.
