Long gone are those days of bringing home DSOTM, sinking into a bean bag chair, popping on the Koss headphones, lighting up the lava lamps, black lights and a joint and sinking into the music.

Try that with a kid these days and he will be squirming like a toad in no time.
The joint might help.

I must admit, its rare that i sit down and listen to a whole album these days without any distractions other than when i've first bought an album.

I don't think that's an indictment on the music, it's more a commentary on the ridiculous time demands mainstream society places on everybody these days. I work in the music industry almost full time, and even i struggle for timr to just chill and listen to some tunes. I'd hate to think what it's like for someone with a job job.
