    Smart move.

    Streaming, schmeaming, it will all end in tears. I can forsee the artistes getting fed up with getting pennies or less for their output while the streaming companies get richer, so I forsee a return to solid hold in yer hands kinds of media.

    I donít think you will ever get the genie back in the bottle now, even if you wanted to. When I look at my 3,500 odd CDs now in the garage, there are probably 2,000 that I only played once. Not sure how much profit would be made by the artist for a CD, but letís say £1. So, to keep the maths simple, if I have an album I love with 10 tracks on it, and stream it thatís 1p per track, 10p for the whole album. There are many albums in my collection I must have played well over a hundred times, so on the streaming basis, the artist is much better off.

    Streaming makes it much more democratic in my mind, if your music is great and people consume it youíll make plenty, if itís not, and people donít, you get paid on a relative model. The world has moved on, and the general public (not us in a minority) are not going to move back to an outdated model in my humble opinion.

    Every generation or so there is an attempt by the music industry to persuade us to re-purchase music we already bought in a new format. The latest model allows us to "rent" at modest cost from a near unlimited library. Whilst vinyl may persist as a "niche" market, I cannot see CDs surviving in the longer term as they have neither the "tangibility" or "nostalgic" lure of the former.

    Personally, I cannot understand the negative attitude by some to streaming, though those not attracted to the model can carry on buying CDs or vinyl ..... for now! I still have a large vinyl collection and a huge cd collection but have gone over almost completely to streaming (either online or my own cd rips). A Tidal subscription allows me to listen to a huge amount of new material that I would never hear without the "rental model".
