90% of their releases are "archive stuff". They only have a handful of studio albums. So, yeah, it sums em up perfectly.

seen I. big up. I was thinking about this thread all day today reminiscing about the power and beauty of listening to a complete album, from first track to the last. Only when a band actually goes through this production effort to MAKE an album does it work, but I think it is exactly what recorded music is about. the single market is for the radio and iTunes is just the new radio, and it i will be big true, but singles never replaced albums, and iTunes could never replace them either. Artists will continue to make epic masterpieces, just as Bob Dylan sang, "someday life will be sweet as a rhapsody, when I paint, my masterpiece.."
