Digital Age of Music
With the Internet more and more artists are selling their music online and now it seems artists are allowing you the listener to download the albums direct for a cheap price. Really, only top name artists can turn a profit with this. Or can they? Saul Williams just released his new album the Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy tardust online for free. Or for 5 dollars for a higher quality download. Produced and music by Trent Reznor of NIN fame this is definitely a bold move. I just got the album and plan on listening to it later but I do like this idea. It'll be interesting to see if other smaller artists will go this route. Not to mention the larger bands who plan on doing these kinds of releases.
