"Apart from Dizzee Rascal and the Script, of course..."

There was a BBC News website article the other day about how digital has boosted sales of video and music. In short, the picture is as follows: there are more million-selling singles, there are fewer million-selling albums. And streaming is king.

However, I was more drawn to the comments underneath the article...

"Digital in the long term will lead to a communist utopia.”
“1D, Skyfall and The Hobbit- is the whole of Britain stuck in permanent childhood? What were the figures for porn?”
"For me, music ended in 1979 - apart from Dizzee Rascal and the Script, of course.”
“It is a great signal that we are now starting to understand ourselves to know of how we grow ourselves together.”
“Sting and Jimmy Nail will rescue the music business.”
