I don't think that's true at all. With anything album there are going to be people who love it and fanatically listen to the whole thing over and over. There are going to be people who are curious and listen to the whole thing once. There are going to be people who listen to two tracks and decide they hate it. And there will even be people who are obsessively fanatic about only a couple of songs on the album which they listen to a bunch of times while ignoring the other tracks. So all of that averages out. The problem is that traditionally all of those people would have paid the same price for the full L.P. and now they don't have to.
