I'd hate to re-preach it, but the mp3-era has killed the value of music (for me at least). I feel incredibly guilty in never supporting some artists that I listen to frequently or periodically. The only thing I'm grateful for with the mp3-era is the fact that I'm not ruining/scratching CDs since I was never good at taking care of them. None of my purchases of CDs in the 90s have survived or seen the light of day in years. I would purchase almost ever wu and wu-related release and play them for months on end. For me and I assume for most of you, these releases were fairly solid all the way though to listen to. Now, it's hard for me to find more than 3 tracks on a release that will make the ipod and the rest of the album is discarded. I listened to the Demigodz album once through (and I use the term listen loosely, as the beats made me skip most tracks) and I probably won't ever revisit it because it wasn't memorable. Even with different genres, like the last couple Neil Young albums, I only found 1-2 tracks that I liked. As an artist, he's pretty vocal about the mp3-era, even on some of his tracks, yet I still can't see the point in purchasing the albums even though I should for listening to it.

Listening to an album for it's entirety regularly is few and far between these days.

I've not wasted cash on old ganxta/im a g type braggadocios time childish shit, as none of them shits is any good., so i listen then delete. usually before the end of the 1st spin

The 7th time he will mute the sound, that's what happens. I heard that he will torture himself if it's classic.
