No. CDs waste space and generally contain 3-5 good songs out of 10-15. iTunes (and digital music as a whole) brought on a new level of consumer choice that is leaps and bounds better than the monopolistic control the music industry has held on us for so long. Bon Jovi is just grumpy he's getting old.

I think it's less about iTune and more about the artists who only put 1 or 2 singles then will the rest with garbage. They're very few artists who take the time to put out a "good" album instead of focusing on 1 song throughout the whole recording process. They're will never be another Dark Side of the Moon to capture our attentions for an hour.

sigh..

music taste should never be criticized, its personal and you can't make any argument why somebody shouldn't like how something sounds. Everybody has their personal tastes.

Music is changing as it has forever...

You could make an argument on the skill of the singers, but thats a different argument. I am almost positive there is people who don't like all the bon jovi era music. (i am not one)

And pinning this on Steve Jobs is totally absurd. Many, many other people have helped/started the digital music revolution, he (apple) just seems to be the first to capitalize on it.

Music on the whole died in the 70s i wasnt even born, god i hate my generation.

Not to say everyone is bad theres a few gems and rap/hip-hop is a genre well worth a listen.

Rap/Hip-hop? You must be talking about the non-mainstream kind. It's a personal thing but when you can't speak the English language it bothers me (glares at other genres that do the same thing). Also, the whole b17ches and "hos" thing is boring now. But that's all based off of the mainstream labels. I have faith that's not the genre as a whole and that as someone else here already said, judging a taste in genre is subjective, and best left out.

But your comment on music beginning to die around the 1970s is true. That's when the desire for milking money began to overtake the desire to spread originality/("good").

With alac/wav/aiff the ipod is bearable (who uses the ipod buds anyway). But outside of grabbing a CD yourself there's not much access to that.

I fail to see how we have more choice now. You get stuck with lossy AAC or MP3 for mainstream music unless you want to fork over for a CD. You have to look to indies and lesser knowns to get high quality formats.

And you think they have less control now? The only thing that changed is they now have to share that control with distributors like Apple or Amazon. We gained simply the ability to pick apart albums. Not much else has changed.

Nope, i picked up the new R.E.M. album and listened center-to-rim. I'm an album guy, not a song guy.

If an album has 3 good songs out of 15 tracks, well, that's a complete fail of a release. You are listening to the wrong bands.

I love playing records and messing with the jacket and art work. (I am 20 btw)

Setting up / playing records > mp3/itunes

If no one has ever messed with a record player I suggest doing it before you die. (in 2012 )
