I don't mind buying CDs but common, it is so 90s. The majority of pople who where spending money on music, just pay for tunes they like and stor it on digital media, mp3 players, itunes and all that.
This has resulted in that the industry can't make as much money as they used to, the fat cats are on a forced diet. And the good old days won't come back. Sure people are still goign to buy CDs but they will spend money on quality or they just won't buy as much as the people who constantly had to get the latest music. Besides radio has allso advanced a lot, so it is much more easy to access music this way to becaus of satellite, webradio etc.
The IRONY is that the industry was pointed in the right direction by NAPSTER, but failed to understand all of that. So instead we had to wait for iTunes that was the first real alternative to what the industry calls "illegal" downloading. The drawback is of course that the high, and way overpriced stuff they used to make lots of money on is gone and it ain't comming back.
Thats way the fatcars are angry.
