sound like

beware this is a shit long post....
as if i typed it,
just a mere ctrl+c and ctrl+v
but i find it informative and somewhat,
or maybe provocative....
one or the other...
its one heck of a truth,
a reminder to all the ignorant us.

Nowadays, the widespread distribution of free mp3 over the internet and cheap musical products had destroyed the whole music industry. Consumers are too ignorant about music quality, opt for the cheapest alternatives as long as they "hear" the music. The truth is, people 20years ago are the ones who really "appreciated" musics. In order to listen to a song, they have to spend very very much on a vinyl disk or a CD, then play it with an expensive vinyl player or hi-fi system. Today, all major brands opt to mass produce cheaper music products, completely compromising the sound quality, as long as they can sell more. Besides, internet had been the main source of music for 80% of music lover to download free low quality songs. All these has led to the down fall of human's acoustic ability.

To those many so called music lovers out there who always boast bout their music library size and think they know everything bout music, but "hear" them thru laptop speakers or the stupid Apple iPod earphone, it's time to reconsider what you're actually hearing!! Go for high bit rate mp3s and start "appreciating" your music via high end products. Expose yourself to the true 'sounds' of the songs, the way it's supposed to be heard, not just merely "hearing' it for the sake of hearing.
