The 11 Best Death Cab For Cutie Albums of the 00s:

The one harsh reality about illegal downloading is the songwriter really does get screwed.  I don’t feel bad for the record labels that much.  They’ve ripped off the customers for years and fucked over the artists even more.  Labels are nothing more than bully distributors who charge a ridiculously large fee for use of their toll roads.  The internet killed the label’s monopoly over the rivers of distribution.  Now any one can be bought and sold, and they don’t need a poorly-structured contract to do that.  Bands really do deserve our money.  They spend months, even years, creating music for our pleasure and they ask for so little in return.  Especially now that two big releases this week are selling for a meager $5 (Death Cab & MMJ), that’s really just some spare pocket change for two of the best albums of the year.
