Labels Pull Albums off iTunes, RIAA Goes After Internet Radio -- When Will They Ever Learn?

By Simon Dumenco

Of course, in the iTunes Age, the conventional wisdom is that nobody buys albums anymore -- but they do buy compilations. (Witness the continuing global success of the "Now That's What I Call Music!" franchise; the latest U.S. "Now" compilation, the 28th in the series, was released in June and went platinum last month.)


I know this was posted a half year ago but what a ridiculous statement. No one buys compilations more than any other kind of CD. Writer finds one example and calls it a widespread trend. What a stupid piece this was. It's like he just wanted to tell us about his dinner "at a trendy restaurant in a trendy New York neighborhood" (definitely relevant to the topic at hand) and needed to find some way to tie it in to an article.

What a worthless douchebag.

Doesn't printing shitty quality mp3s onto vinyl kind of defeat the purpose of listening to vinyl in the first place?

I assume you could print perfect quality copies of someone else's vinyl.

This is worse quality than the shitty mp3's:

 

"It has a sampling rate of 11kHz (a quarter of typical mp3 audio) and 5-6bit resolution."

 

A cool concept but far from realistic right now.
