Yes, The music killed the industry. It truly is crap nowadays. On top of that, the quality of CD production went to hell. Buy a music cd today and STILL, it doesnt have CD Text on it. They record the levels of the music so high, it sounds all distorted and like crap. The mixing is garbage, as there seems to be no stereo seperation anymore… it’s just all squashed together. HDCD was cool as well, but nobody bothered to produce them. You can’t buy stand alone cd players either for the past several years. I think this is a huge issue that caused people to stop buying cd’s as well. It all comes down to this: I can create better quality music cd’s at home on a burner. It doesn’t take much brains to figure this out. The music industry is just a total money greedy out of control idiot machine.
