A while back, I started wondering whether the fact that so many of us listen to music on mp3s is changing how songwriters and record producers make pop music. If mp3s tend to have a tinny, thinner sound than cds or vinyl, it stands to reason that songwriters would craft tunes to use that thinness to best effect.
What do you think? Do you miss the old days of rich vinyl sound, or are you just happy to have your music in a more convenient form? Does the technology used to play music really affect the kind of music that's written? Please add your comment below. Thanks!
