    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   I think it’s safe to say that we’re at the end of the “album age,” and although the format will hold on for a while, it’s clearly waning in popularity.

So let’s begin with the six reasons why the album format has,… View this post

Chris went on to give this definition… View this post
