I wasn't putting anything on a pedestal. I was just saying that the technology used to deliver recorded studio albums will change and such, and that technology isn't sacred(listen I don't even like the concept of sacred but we'll go with that), but albums are art, and art is something I consider important because it's one of the most human things imaginable.

Look, I know and am appalled that studio technology is used to make unworthy musicians sound good. What I'm saying is that, at least the concept of an album, of putting songs together, blah blah blah, how I described it before, I do not think that form of musical expression should die out. I don't even think that certain form of musical expression should lose prominence, but that's just me, if I made music I would want to structure the songs and have it all flow together in a certain way so I could get across what I was trying to say.
The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

Yeah you are right, recorded music and live music are different forms of art. I can appreciate live music for what it is and recorded music for what it is, but I guess I just hold a really traditional opinion in that music is still a performance art... I don't know, I just appreciate live music much more than recorded music - for me personally. But I do know completely where you're coming from in saying that they're apples and oranges.
