Digital, Digital… Always Digital! Enough!

November 15, 2011 § 1 Comment

After years of crisis, due to the hacking of CDs and to illegal downloading, the market of recorded music is experiencing a recovery in the United States thanks to the paying digital offers. It is such a large phenomenon that in big American cities as Atlanta, we almost can no longer find records stores as the consumers are buying online.

In Europe, the distributor Believe did not wait for these good news to bet everything on the digital sale of music. Settled in France since 2005, it suggests the independent producers to sell their albums online.

I am probably old fashioned, but can you really completely enjoy a digital album?

I mean, the change from vinyl to CD was a thing, but we kept an object. We kept the cover, and the booklet.

Hell, the cover is part of the artwork. A Pink Floyd album is nothing without the cover. The cover, and the inside of the booklet are part of the dream! Moreover, one music is nothing without the others. Would you read only few chapters from a book in a random order?

I think here we lost something…
