the death of the album

For you music lovers, here is a good Op-Ed from The New York Times on the dysfunctional relationship between record labels and the internet, and how that led to the dramatic drop in the popularity of cds, and by association, the bankruptcy of small music stores and even some of the giants like Tower Records. I know it was just another big chain, but I still think it's a shame; I spent a lot of time as a kid in the TR on Guadalupe in Austin, TX, and something was definitely lost in the transition to Best Buy and iTunes.
