I may be cursed with an "intellectual synesthesia" ...

[from the ancient Greek σύν (syn), "together," and αἴσθησις (aisthēsis), "sensation,"is a neurologically-based condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway]

... but for some odd reason, this whole conversation reminds me of the way one of my high school teachers kept referring to "multiple choice" tests as "multiple guess."

Everyone can have their cherished notions of the world they'd like to see... but the thing is, reality will only oblige these dreams so far.

In the world of singles, performance becomes far more important simply because anybody can cover a great song with a better performance and turn themselves into the artist benefiting from a hit single.

The whole song/band/singer-songwriter "model" is based on the economics of selling albums as opposed to singles.

That would explain a lot about the current state of music. One can only hope that the album makes a comeback.

The bar for album quality is lots higher when there is competition from a singles market.

True. I remember in the 90s, every month in the San Fernando Valley (LA) a different cat would stick an SSL in a family home. The neighbors would be wondering why band members are coming and going in the middle of the night, SoCal Edison would report the massive electricity bill to sheriffs as an indoor pot farm, and you could hear the music a block away. The neighbors couldn't have been too surprised though, since they film porn out there in family homes.
