This according to drudge report.
They want to go back to selling $15 albums with 2 good songs out of 12. They hate it because people on buy the songs they like now instead of crappy b-side music.

Who cares, they are just trying to get more money out of Apple. They have no choice though...apple has too much of the market share for them to back out.

It means that there will be a revolution. The music industry is doing the intuitive thing, but in the new generation of music and movies, the best idea would be counter intuitive. You see, the industry is an album focused industry. This means everything goes towards selling the album. How it should work is that everything goes towards selling the concert.

Most of the Big 5 record studios try to sell the thing you can touch. What the should be selling is the thing you can feel. Which is: The Concert Expirence. You cant pirate a feeling of being surrounded by 25,000 other people who all love the artist. Albums and Singles should make you want to buy the concert tickets. They are focusing on the small details of album sales.

The really REALLY big artists (read: the ones who have the best live shows) already know this. Think Dave Matthews, Greatful Dead, String Cheese Incident, Coldplay, Ben Harper....They make waaaaaaaaay more money off their live shows than acutal album sales. and some don't even get radio play anymore except for a few retro plays everynow and then on the local alternative channel. If an artist is really good and you download their album off the internet using *ahem* alternate methods, please support them buy still buying their album from a brick and mortor store. even off their website works too! and wow that was a lot more then i intended to write. sorry!
