The brave new media world, as seen from the music business…

This is a great article in Miller-McCune, a great magazine which should be more widely read.  This line jumped out:

It’s obvious traditional media doesn’t quite have the authority it used to. Not when — after Rolling Stone pans my favorite artist’s new album — I can ignore the review, Google the title and, guaranteed, find some semi-influential blogger who (like me) is drooling over the “brilliant” music. Word-of-mouth, or perhaps just the sheer amount of dissenting or commending niche voices, will be king of this brave semi-new music world — what’s left of it anyway.
