[QUOTE=Zod;2551465]I might be getting older, but there’s not that many new cd’s that I want. Maybe 2 or 3 a year and they tend to be from bands that have been around a while.
It seems that the music industry devolved back to singles and left albums in the dust. That might be hard to reverse. Albeit if a song is a buck and a cd is a buck it might be a no brainer.
Anyways I’m not entirely convinced that piracy its completely to blame for the fall of the music industry. Quality of music has declined. The music industry hasn’t been able to intro a new format in over 20 years… which means they lost all the revenue they get from people repurchasing their collection. IE records, 8tracks, tapes, cds. People don’t need to rebuy cds in dig format as they can just encode their own.
a buck a cd sounds cool, but there so freaked out by piracy, they don’t look at the big picture.[/QUOTE]
I agree with this large paragraph.
I would actually buy music more often if it was worth it, and had a decent sound, instead, I’ll just stick with my many CD’s of bands like RATT, Metallica, Ozzy, Sweet, Steve Miller, Eagles, Duran Duran, Fleetwood Mac, ETC.
Most albums today are utter crap, and maybe are only singles.
I can say that some of todays music is okay, but with albums being so short or just not that good, that’s what detours me from buying them, or even thinking about picking them up, because I don’t want to spend over $10 for an album that has one, or maybe five songs on it, instead I’d just spend $1 on a few songs I may like from the album.
If an album was just $1, or maybe even $5, I wouldn’t mind buying it.
But if it were for older bands, or maybe their greatest hits CD, I’d pay $10, no problem, cause it’s worth it.
