This just shows how clueless the industry leaders are. When it comes to music - if it isn’t portable- it’s dead. Who needs surround sound HD music when you are in an airplane? Who needs a giant device to play them on and a bag to schlepp around to carry your discs? Who wants a disc anyway? We already went thru this crap with CD’s- they are kryptonite to a music lover!!!
You can’t CHOOSE what tracks are on it and it is half empty as they only want 10 to 13 tracks for 20 bucks!
I got news for the “music industry”… you have destroyed the market for yourselves, with your manufactured “stars”. THEY ALL SUCK!!!
This is all due to the Brittany Spears effect of not taking chances with new talent and keep sending out the same mindless Brittany clones- because you made some money off her.
Most of them can’t write music and even if they could - they could not come up with enough material to fill an album.
Therefore- you don’t “need” an album. So, what is happening? The greedy bastards are trying to sell the same crap again on another incompatible media. They will re-introduce al the same crap from the 60’s thru the 80’s and try to gush about it and tell everyone how much better it is AGAIN. Just like the Blu-ray / DVD “argument”.
Sorry- been there done that.
As for the BDA- take your DRM and your musical escapades and shove them so far up your collective asses- that even Adam Lambert wont try to pull it all back out!
Stick a fork in yourselves- your both done.
I would not be surprised to read in a few weeks of a HD Audio mini-BR disc and player. It’ll cost 600 bucks due to the processing power to decrypt it and come with a set of cheap earbuds and an Internet cable port.
I hope they do- it will help drive some more nails in the BDA coffin and help drain profit from the music companies as well, if they even make any at this point.
