I got home for the first time in over a month to a stack of records about two feet high. Currently, I'm at Dillinger Four's 'C I V I L W A R' which is probably in my top five of albums of 2008. Granted, Rabbit Habits by Man Man is number one, and everyone here who hasn't purchased a copy yet should go do so now at their local record store. If they download it, then Al Gore will kill their internet. It's in the Constitution.

You download albums because you were born in a time when that's a possibility. You don't have to go to the record store, and even more begrudgingly, most of you folks miss out on the joy of thumbing through the bin of LPs and enjoying the artwork and getting the full experience of an album. Also, why do musicians have anything to prove to you? For Christsakes, what with MySpace killing music and all, you have enough opportunities to peep parts for free all over the internet. So, if you need something 'proven' you have multiple chances to get a good idea about what you will be buying.

The point is, if you don't actually pay for records, an all ready dying industry will lose what last leg it has left. Thank Christ for vinyl sales or most of the Indie labels would have probably been forced to cut corners even more or fold in upon themselves.

i do not think most people have a good concept of how the music industry works. musicians get very little profit from record sales. the only times the numbers really matter is if you are a superstar, i.e. madonna, britney spears, michael jackson, etc.

musicians make money by touring.

sir osis, i know it was your opinion, but it was definitely not that i was born in the digital era why i do what i do. i was born in '83. i have an eclectic collection of records, tapes and cds.

a lot of the time mainstream artists will put a 'single' out and there might be two or three 'hits' on an album. this shows a lack of initiative, and apathy towards fans.

you take a long hard look at independent musicians, or even some bigger names who dedicate all their work to their fans you will see that every track is not only worth listening to, but was painstakingly recorded until it was perfect - even if it takes ten years to make the album.

tool is a good example of this, as is the mars volta.
indie bands like bright eyes has shown that song writing is making a comeback, instead of popstars simply singing the work of other people....

i think there is a large gap of where we stand, but i find myself wholly justified in what i do, and if i 'break laws' then so be it.

pirating kills record comapnies, not musicians. the record companies cheat the musicians. death to the industry!

I agree w/ Tool. Awesome band who takes whatever time they need to produce quality music. As far as Mars Volta is concerned, I've only seen live videos of their performances and up to this point the only thing i'm convinced they know how to do is make noise and run around acting like spazsticks. Just my opinion....
