I don’t know if you’ve noticed but that’s all we really have now. All the commercial music is either boy bands, hard rock bands, pussy rock bands, a diva, a male singer that left a boy band or rap. What you are saying is basically if I have a song that doesn’t appeal to the masses I won’t be able to sell it, but if I throw it in with a bunch of other songs that suck somehow that will cause it to fly off the shelves. If you’re only listening to music that is made by bands for the sole purpose of making money then that’s what you’re going to get, music that appeals to the ignorant masses, regardless of if they’re selling it by the album or by the single. Besides, it’s not like they can’t make a whole album anyway and just add a button to the software labeled download whole album. And just for the record I said “I think albums can (sometimes) hurt the music.” I didn’t say they always hurt the music. Sometimes albums are good, like the Wall. But sometimes you have one good single and bands base their whole CD around it and by the time you get to the end your bored out of your mind. But like I said, if the artists want to make the songs as if they were an album and package them fine, but if they want to just make a good experimental song that doesn’t have to go with 10 other songs that should be fine too. P2P if done right could give them that choice. I think the choice is better then just saying it’s got to be this way or no way at all.
