Solid read. Really interesting commentary on where the state of the music industry is. Very well reasoned article and in my humble opinion, worth giving 15 minutes to read over.

Interesting read. It confirms a fair bit of what I've experienced as well, all of these years peripherally involved in the business of making music.

I cannot stop staring at his goddamned t-shirt, though. What in the hell is that print? It's like Three Wolves, but with eagles.

if there's one thing i 'fanboy' over it's albini. the first episode of foo fighters' "sonic highways" takes place in chicago at albini's electrical audio studio. definitely worth a watch.. as is the 2nd one at inner ear in DC (where world famous SATAN'S SATYRS recorded!). havent watched the rest.

I'm normally a big fan of Albini's writing/rants and this is no exception.
