Great blog. Being an 80's child with a music obsession throughout the nineties, I do feel like there is a sense of romance gone missing now that music discovery sites do the work for you.

I used to rummage through magazines, spend hours listening to CDs in 'music shops' and when I found a new diamond, I would be ecstatic.

Now it just seems that we are being spoon-fed music. It might lead us to the same material, but the journey is very different and I can;t help thinking that it's making us appreciate the 'destination' less.

Having said that, you have to embrace the future and social discovery is certainly that. I just hope that it is developed in a way that maintains integrity, within a number of ways.

Many thanks,

Jack
