He is Scottish though, so it's in his nature to be pretty pessimistic about things in general.

This whole rating system is completely arbitrary, so who cares? Why don't they just have a plaque for streams and a plaque for sales? That's double the plaques that Rihanna can now receive! This is a no-brainer.

Saw these guys when they opened up for Wavves. They absolutely killed it, and won me over as a fan for life. Can't wait for the new album. If you get a chance you should definitely see them live.

As a dedicated Rdio user, I've recently noticed a lot of the problems with streaming services that I had ignored before. Now that Rdio is dead, it has been a real pain trying to figure out which service is best, and bring over my whole collection of favorite artists and playlists from Rdio. It makes me miss the days of owning a CD, or even having a digital file that I could organize in iTunes or some other media player. At the same time, I love the flexibility that streaming services give me, allowing me to listen to any kind of music at any time with barely any effort from me.

Great article Michael. Some really important issues are brought up here. I think one of the most important points that was briefly touched on is the relationship between labels and artists. Even if labels manage to get bigger payouts from streaming services, will any of that make it to the artists? I'm not sure what the solution is to that problem, but it seems like the major label system needs a major overhaul.

You're right, the AOTY discussion is completely pointless until Patrick Stickles weighs in
