From the NYTimes Least Liked Music of the Year Column [6:00 pm]

Tasteful Imitations and Sagging Follow-Ups

Jon Pareles, Neil Strauss, Ben Ratliff and Kelefa Sanneh listened to a lot of bad pop music in 2003; herewith, their least fond recollections.

[...] STRAUSS My biggest letdown was watching the recording industry deal with downloaders. I just think it’s terrible p.r. I don’t see any fewer people on Kazaa. The only thing it’s encouraged people to do is to take their downloaded files and not share them. But they’re all still there trying to get music.

PARELES The recording industry keeps trying to build a wall in the ocean. They keep trying to shut down the Internet. And they think they can do it by suing 12-year-olds, when what they need is a great subscription service.
