  1. Great article by Dorian Lynskey on the standing of albums in today's digital market. Downloads and "unbundling" were supposed to consign the old-fashioned long-player to history. Why didn't it happen? Three years ago, the music website Pitchfork made a bold claim. Radiohead's Kid A, claimed the writer, was "the last of its kind", a "relic of the past", a late example of the "fading art" of the cohesive, meticulously sequenced album. Albums? God, who listens to them anymore? A lot of people seem to like this idea. A Google search for "death of the album" returns over 14 million pages o

  3. I read the whole thing, I think the most compelling notion is the idea that an album offers a cohesive narrative when done in a thematic fashion that singles cannot achieve due to the fact that singles are by their very nature stand alones. The listening experience is enhanced by the album format, an artist's vision is executed through an album's format. The singles market offers fast and easy hits to the casual listener, but to music aficionados the album stands as a timeless art not a relic of the past due to a digital era.

  4. Not really. On PlanetJanet.. EVERY artist (including Janet) gets shaded,hated on...or whatever term you wanna use. Its more so the nature of this board and less about any specific artist.

  5. Y'all don't understand what Jarry is saying. Of course Christina fans and stans knew she had an album coming out but for the non-fans and general public they probably didn't know she had an album coming out or didn't know exactly when. If I weren't a Christina fan and I watched the "Voice" I wouldn't know she had an album being released for the simple fact she didn't talk about it on the show or promote it before it's release which was stupid on her part

  7. Craig wants to pretend Brandy is as relevant as Xtina despite Brandy promoting the hell out of her album while Xtina didn't and sold a less in the process When Xtina flopped, she graced every news outlet.. when Brandy... not a care in the world was given Lotus is currently 127,000 sold (plus 9k in the UK from first week) 9/11 is currently at 110,700k* sold... and the bigger flop is..... wait for it *could be off by a few thousands.

  8. Wow so you mean she's been promoting her album on every single episode? Where does it say that?....oh wait I dont see that posted anywhere..that would've helped you're argument. You keep thinking why you'd think she would, I'm telling you why she didnt, its opinion vs. fact. But she didn't promote the 1st single, despite it getting the good reception, and entering at 34 (with a small push from her it could have been at a minimum in the top 20.) thats my whole point she didn't do the work, she earned what she got and is lucky it did what it did.

  11. The fact that ppl on my instagram dashboard are regramming the picture and saying "I want a relationship like Chris Brown and Rihanna" is beyond me. I have no time for that. But if she likes getting her ass beat mercifully that's her business. I personally would not get back with someone who almost took my life but I guess.

  15. Why would you bold the part about their relationship being prominent and therefore a model of what young people look up to as part of your reasoning for people to leave them alone That's EXACTLY the problem.....young girl gets her ass beaten by her boyfriend. Young girl goes back because that's what her idol did. Young girl gets beaten again. And again. Young girl ends up dead. Yes it's Rihanna and Chris business but instead of idiots here rooting for them and saying we should mind our business, maybe they should look at statistics on domestic violence and women beaters.
