I'm not surprised, but at the same time, working in the electronics department of a small Wal-Mart, I did notice the "Adele effect" first hand. I see maybe 5 cd's sold a month on my shifts, but when that album was released, I was seeing upwards of 10 a day. Keep in mind I live in town with a population under 3000 so that's actually a fair bit of cd's.

No surprise here. Newer music is a joke and it is smaller than older music. That is the simple reality.

I refuse to call any album "physical" that was released in CD or vinyl LP format — unless of course the album is "Physical Graffiti." I scour YouTube for the sole purpose of finding albums to buy. Unfortunately some of the albums I come across by indie bands are only limited releases. And some albums that are from the 70s I find on YouTube have become collectible and fetch beaucoup bucks. I'm using Spotify more recently, finding it has whole albums that are not found on YouTube. However there are a few bands I can't find on Spotify.

I don't buy as much as I use to buy. I never completed my Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis and Led Zeppelin catalogues. At one time that was important to me but not so much anymore. Last bought was "In Through the Out Door." It was packaged in a brown paper bag like the original release. That little extra wrapping was enough to seal the deal for me. I also have a special release of Led Zeppelin III with that thing that spins, and a Stones' Sticky Fingers CD with a miniature zipper.

Not that you can do anything about it, I'm just thankful I got to live through part of that high point of music from the 60's to 90's.

Liked the Stokes and White Stripes but by the early 2000's the decline had begun.
Portisheads damm 16 years old man they aint brand new.

Which cover did you get? There were 6 different versions. The same scene viewed from 6 different angles.
