    I think creativity and quality is DEAD, so how can someone buy an album if their appreciation is geared towards pop and hit songs and shit like that. Music is an art, but its also become a product. and there are some shitty ass products, and their are HIGHKY MARketable products...think about that

    You know what, he's right in my eyes. Most people no longer really want whole albums, they are more into buying a song or two.
    Over and out like a boy scout

    I don't know if I'm most people. But if Motley Crue put out a new Album, I'll buy it. I might not buy it the first week, or even month it comes out. I'll wait till it gets close to $10, I think my limit is $12.

    But If I like the band, I'm buying the CD. Slash, Velvet Revolver, Creed, Alter Bridge, Crue, Cult, Megadeth.... I buy them all.

    However, the last CD I bought, that I really enjoyed & insist on listening to from start to finish..... The Heroin Diaries.

    I think if bands get back to marketing bands, people will keep buying albums. Right now, it's too impersonal & they're just dropping albums for the money.

    I've got everything BLS ever put out. & I'll continue to buy them. Bonamassa, Jonny Lang, Izzy Stradlin, Down....


    But that's just me.

    It's not a bad idea, it definitely makes sense from a business aspect. I personally like whole albums, but it seems like most people can't put out a good whole album anymore. Given that, it might actually be better for most mainstream artists to frequently put out single worthy material than to put out a mediocre album every year or two.

    hm, i can see how that less emphasis on records would be a big deal for rock bands, being how the popularity of the entire genre is definitely not what it used to be. Combined with the fact that i rarely hear a rock album that catches my attention from start to finish. I find more catchyness myself from dance pop(thats just me though). But still yet, i don't see bands completely annihilating their albums . I see them just as part of bigger packages, that may come with more art, more discount opportunities, more information about the band and all sorts of other fun stuff. Being how music is so easy to transfer, the business model would definitely need to change, not that many people give a crap about buying an album anymore, but people still do love those shows and helping bands they relate to .
    buy 9.95 leases and 49.95 exclusives!

    It's true but I still like the feeling of buying a new album.

    As Tommy Lee he's probably right. As an emerging artist you need something to sell at your shows and shows are where the best money is at nowadays.

    With my band, I definitely make more money from shows than sales. But as a producer, licensing can obviously bring you plenty of money.
