Comments from Corban Goble

Believe is a great pop record, and its successes have more to do with the writing but also Bieber's performances are great. Half of Nicki's album is incredible (and I'm also swaded by some strong tracks on the re-up like "I Endorse These Strippers"

thanks Michael_. i obviously don't love when you attack others just trying to do their thing and express their feelings about something, but i really appreciate your passion and i like your blog. i think you're a good writer who really cares about the subject matter and that's not something everyone can tout, you know? it's a good thing. Next time you get angry just put on "Headlines" and shit will work out

From what I know, that Q&A is going to be in the new Best Music Writing 2012 book that's going to be published soon. It's not part of the Da Capo series anymore, but it's independently published and guest-edited by ?uestlove! So, look out for that #PLUG

Also, for those here/on Twitter bringing up the concept of "spotify getting rich while artists are getting poor," you've definitely hit an interesting tension of what's going on and I'm not trying to discount that. But this is about valuation -- in this case, it's usually a "present value" calculation that's an estimation of a company's value based on potential future gains -- so they're not rich by any means yet (the capital provided by places like GS and VCs probably provides for their current operating costs). But, say the company goes public in a few years -- CNN Money speculates that valuation might be as high as $12 billion -- then it'll be pretty interesting to see what the breakdown is.
