Someone who finds the idea of compilation CDs revolting for at least one of the following reasons:
1. The song-by-song nature
of digital downloading has made compilations
a restrictive, overexpensive, and unnecessary.
2. By buying it you allow the record companies to define
what's "the best," which
usually consists of the singles that those
companies pushed hardest, and everyone knows
the best songs on an album are the ones
you never hear on the radio.
3. By buying compilations
, you are denying
yourself the pleasure
of listening to an wide catalogue of music as it was first listened to, and thus have no sense of history.
4. Any compilations
you do have in your possession should
be hand-crafted and traded
with prospective girlfriends.
