There aren't soo many Alan Parsons on the world to make good sound on albums :).
(Sorry for the offtopic but i need to make a reflexion:)
It's crappy to see today two kinds of music (since my point of view).
One way we have the commercial music based on "all for the money", full of marketing and no taking regard about people's tastes has many ways. Musicians knows that and it's curious to see how ones don't care about it and others makes one comercial album and next take a "personal project" that it's amazing, i think it's because they feel free about it and with no pressure from their company. Time limit for commercial albums it's money and sometimes they lost the spirit on the way.
Another way it's the non commercial music, intimate, minimalist, taking new ways to sound; make for musicians dont't care soo much for the money but yes for their artistic feeling and what they really want to express. Fortunately The Net it's a wonderful place for they and gives them the possibility to show their job.
Since my point of view Music it's an Art to express emotions, testing new ways of sound, new ways of recording, etc, if we lost this we lost the spirit. I see Justin Bieber's songs and young people listening it and feel that taday's music sound the same on Justin Bieber, Rihanna, etc or whatever.
