One of the things that seems to come up a lot is the minimal amount of decent material on an album. I’m guessing that’s done mostly to pad the album out under the “more is betterer” way of thinking. Maybe one of the ways the music industry could get people back (other than stop being a**holes about the whole deal) is to have 4 good songs on an album and some commentary about the songs. 15-20 minutes with the band talking about how the songs came about, issues with making them, dirty secrets, etc. etc. It works for DVDs, and if it’s done without trying to interject a political agenda, it could be entertaining as well. Of course, that would require a mindset shift almost greater than changing the “don’t fix, sue” mindset the industry seems to be stuck in now.
