Earlier this week, NPR asked if musics reviews matter to listeners. So let's pose the question here: do you still read reviews every day? Do you read them to get a different view point on what your listening to? Do you check them out to generate a conversation?

You're going to need some time to sit down for this one this week. In case you haven't yet, please read NPR intern Emily White's blog. Then read professor and ex-musician David Lowery's response. Then read Travis Morrison of The Dismemberment Plan's response to Lowery. If you make it through all of that, I've got some thoughts on all three pieces here. What I want you to think about this week is the tangible ownership of music. If there's one vinyl record or CD in your collection that you would never part with, why? When and where did you get it, and is there a story behind it? Would love to hear why the tangible medium will never die from music fans instead of the press.

Over the weekend, NPR intern Emily White contributed a blog post where she admitted to rarely buying music and also what she thinks her and her generation are looking for in terms of a modern form of music distribution. Today, a UGA professor wrote a response letter which we think anyone who is a fan of music needs to read.
