Are you using any software to download music from? Which one did you find is the best for progressive rock?

Let me explain myself better, I understood there are some softwares that can help you find your music, even the rare stuff, staying on the legal side, anybody knows what i'm talking about?

I use the Zune software and use their Zune Marketplace which has a pretty nice collection of prog. I have a Zune Pass which is a monthly subscription so its all legal downloads. They are DRM protected but you can play them on up to 3 computers. Cannot burn to CD unless you buy the songs.
 
Microsoft recently announced this service is moving to Xbox Music, Zune name is going away and reportedly will offer over 30 million tracks.
 
I just downloaded The Inner Road-Visions album as I just read the review on PA......I had never heard of The Inner Road, so a new find for me and obscure I guess.....but it was on the Zune Marketplace.

In the rare case that I buy digital music, it's either from iTunes or it's from Bandcamp

I don't know about you, but if I was rich, I wouldn't have a CD wall, I'd have a CD vault.

^ Dirty Boy!

Itunes, Bandcamp, Amazon sometimes, any other ways the band offers to download through.

Bandcamp is the future though. Honest. A legal way for bands to give their music for free. That's great honestly. So much music is pirated anyway, by giving the buyer a chance to donate, he might actually pay something, even minimal. 

Also Recommended Records shopt (rermegacorp.com) offers free shipping and has a f**king amazing inventory. So when I feel the urge to buy something physical many times it's from there.

95% Amazon, 5% Bandcamp. I use Spotify to listen as well.

I hold prog musicians hostage and make them play music for me while I fap furiously.


EDIT: Sorry, I'm in a weird mood, haha
