Youtube Music Listening

How do you guys feel about listening to full albums through Youtube?

I don't have any moral issue with Youtube album streams, but the couple times I've tried it, it has just felt wrong.

I would guess that it has something to do with the fact that I didn't purchase the album, or I haven't at least borrowed it from a friend who bought it.

It feels a bit like cheating. When you listen through Youtube, you don't have to put any effort in to the listening experience. At least with a download you out a file on your computer.

And having the ritual of spinning a vinyl record or playing a CD, turning up your speakers, and just sitting down without distraction obviously has the upper hand. But sometimes the iPod is necessary (with some good head-phones of course)
Conference of the Birds

I guess the main reason I don't like listening on Youtube is the fact that it greatly increases the amount of music that I can listen to, and I know that sounds like a huge benefit, but then music becomes diluted in the amalgam of the internet. I feel that the internet should be a place of music discovery, not the main source of our listening.
