I was reading an interesting debate on Slashdot last night, about the selling of single downloads vs. an entire album on iTunes. Some argue that music should be sold as an album to preserve the artist’s vision, whereas others argue that the options should meet consumer wants and needs.
A classic artist’s dilema – to "sell out" or not to? Personally, I’m with the latter group. Let your fans choose what they want, don’t force-feed them with what you think they should want. It seems a little silly and overly-artsy to impose artistic virtues on your customers…]]>
