The biggest thing to happen to the music industry in a while I think is a program called Spotify which we have over here in the UK. I here it's coming to the USA soon too. What it is is a program you run, you type in any artist and it gives you a list of all the albums ever made, then you just click a song or album and listen to it in it's entirety for free. There is an ad every 30mins, or you can pay $10 a month for no ads. Of course, there are a few artists missing, but you'd be surprised just how many stuff is on there. It's fucking amazing.
