Music is, after all, more powerful than the plastic or person that delivers it. We have a need to create it and consume it (in the most epicurean way).
"Some artists are the Coke and Pepsi of music, while others are the fine wine — or the funky home-brewed moonshine. And that's fine. I like Rihanna's 'Umbrella' and Christina Aguilera's 'Ain't No Other Man.' Sometimes a corporate soft drink is what you want — just not at the expense of the other thing. In the recent past, it often seemed like all or nothing, but maybe now we won't be forced to choose."
