CBC News Article: Junos 2015: Albums spinning toward irrelev

I posted this link here about how albums are becoming irrelevant and how singles are gaining credibility. Regarding record sales, this may work in Elvis' favour in the future.

Bring back the 7 inch 45 singles (large hole please) so I can stock my jukebox with NEW music...provided there's anything new worth listening to.

Not really - the article is about new albums, not old ones, and it's fair to say that, in pop/rock music, an artist's success has always been judged on the singles chart and not the album chart. The albums of new artists might be becoming irrelevant from a sales point of view, but any singer or musician who takes himself seriously will still work towards releasing fine, coherent albums, no matter what the genre.
