I agree with Hermit, I like the majority of those.  Although my favorite type of music is anything in the Rock and Techno catagory.

The Guardian

http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/news/story/0,11711,1020734,00.html

Even technologically challenged music fans who could no more download an illegal MP3 file than pilot a space shuttle owe a debt of gratitude to the Napster generation.

For years record buyers have complained that CDs are overpriced and the music industry has responded by saying, as politely as possible, put up or shut up.

Now, panicked by the pirates, they've finally been compelled to slash prices to a reasonable level and sales have reached an all-time high.

Profits are down but that's what happens when you stop charging 16.99 for an item that costs 50p to manufacture.

These sales figures are enormously heartening because they prove that people still love to buy music. In recent years many industry pundits have become professional jeremiahs, predicting the irreversible decline of record sales.

They blame it on the bands, the radio programmers, the A&R men, the internet and possibly even the boogie. They're wrong.

Of course quality is subjective, although the fact that the year's biggest sellers include Justin Timberlake's consummate urban pop and the White Stripes' lo-fi blues-rock suggests a healthy state of play.

What can't be disputed is that record buying is addictive. The more CDs you buy and enjoy, the more new ones you seek out.

Thanks to the pile 'em high, sell 'em cheap ethos of online retailers, the discount chain Fopp and the never-ending sales in major stores, fans are inclined to buy armfuls of affordable CDs instead of one or two full-price ones. That means bigger record collections and more knowledgeable and passionate consumers.

Maybe some teenagers whose introduction to music postdates Napster are now incurably addicted to freebies but most music-lovers are prepared to buy the real thing at a fair price.

When you can pick up a classic for a fiver and a new release for a tenner, downloading doesn't seem quite as necessary.

For many years the music business has been greedy, short-sighted and manipulative, inflating prices because it knew the consumer had no alternative. Now, led by the pirates, the customer finally has the upper hand.

That means a painful process of readjustment for the labels, but if the price wars make music more available and desirable they could eventually prove to be the answer to a flailing industry's prayers.

What is "alternative?"
« Reply #9 on: 2004-11-19 11:01:53 »

Such a funny little word, alternative.

I remember listening to music that was "alternative" in the early 90s.  Most of it came from Seattle and a little independant label called Sub-Pop.  Then all of a sudden, the music is on the radio and on the charts.  What was once 'alternative' is now mainstream.

I guess you have to ask yourself, what is this music alternative to?  It must be a perspective thing.  Compared to what I listen to, my parents definately listen to alternative music!

Why do we have such a need to pidgeon-hole everything into restraining categories?
