I love the story of Threatin, the metal band with thousands of fake fans on social media, currently playing shows where only two or three people show up

Turns out they went as far as creating fake record label and booking agency websites

Making the rounds for clear reasons. This is not a case where you can go “nuh-uh” and stick your head in the sand when the data is there. Since Billboard is reflecting reality, the issue is with reality rather than the charts. Obviously the “album” as discrete/curated assemblage of music still exists. But it’s probably time to start thinking of it as a valorized niche, one increasingly decoupled from the physical as well as dominant playlist culture.

None of this matters if you are a regular consumer of music other than pop, though.

I feel like this has been the case for a long time now; we just get a new article about it every time they crunch the numbers again and it's worse than it was the last time.

An industry model where 1% of the artists generate 99% of the numbers, while in itself an illustration of a variety of sad truths, doesn't really seem like it's going to tell you much about widespread trends within the artform, insofar as they apply to a variety of artists operating at a variety of levels; all it really tells you is how big the CD section at Target is going to be (a little bigger than an endcap, last time I checked), a reality that us old-school folks have been reckoning with for a long time.

Yep! Like I said -- niche. The album-as-artistic-concept isn't dead and buried yet, but its prevalence in the mainstream is well on its way out.

Yeah. Basically the 21st century has been a long-rolling reaction to what the industry tried to do in the 90s. What we're seeing now is an accelaration. Good piece here: http://www.slate.com/articles/podcasts/ ... s_hit.html

Very much so. Buying a CD for a song or two was SOP for casual listeners in the '90's, and people took the bait because it was their only option.

I think the Spotify guy is wrong when he says that people's listening habits have changed. They haven't changed; technology has just reached the point of being able to meet them where they've always been.
