The Best Fit Fifty Tracks of 2011 (part I)
We’re not going to be so trite as to rehearse the old argument about iTunes having killed the album. That’s been done to death, with pretty unedifying results.

Single sales might be collapsing, but with mp3 blogs still going strong and the cult of the DJ enjoying a resurgence, the stock of the individual track, as opposed to the album, seems to be on the rise.
