Pop Did Eat Itself

hi everyone

a little while ago, thanks to the gent called Bob, i was able to give you a link to the first part of an article on how the record industry set about destroying itself with digital technology. i am happy to say that part two is available, and you can thus carry on reading by clicking this writing here.

yes, again there's some rather complex technical stuff in it, but also some fascinating reading for music lovers. and surprise surprise at who features, yes the soulless but oddly worshipped organization that seems keen to drive the art of music out of music.

the article features a couple of points on something i have been arguing and warning of for years - legal and illegal mp3 downloads are convenient, "cheap" or very cheap indeed if you don't pay, but they are not the proper music as recorded by the artists. an insane amount of compression happens when you "make" an mp3 file and you lose vast chunks of the original sound of the music.

if they ever really do away with properly mastered and prepared physical releases of albums, it shall truly be the day that the music dies.

happy, informative reading everyone!

be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
