    The month of August like, basically, every month for the past 10 years has not been kind to the music industry.

    Between August 8th and 14th, only 4.95 million albums were sold, the lowest weekly level since Neilsen Soundscan starting tracking sales in 1991. This past week, sales were up, but just barely: just over 5 million albums were sold, an increase of only 2 percent from the record low
    With the crap they try to pass off a music today, it is no wonder no one is buying.

    That and iTunes makes buying albums pointless.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    I like albums. I like concept albums and theme albums. I've been exposed to a lot of music I didn't think I'd like that way.
