On the whole, Carney is right. Musically the public IS lazy and don’t do much to try and explore the options available to them aside from 90% the crap that major labels peddle as music.
In other words, it’s not Nickleback’s fault they sell millions of records, it’s the publics fault for liking shitty music.
Coldplay = Music for people who hate music but like to buy stuff.

Here’s a link to Andy’s article.
