While I agree that the craftsmanship in making an album is waning (and I do miss it), I'm not sure it's the fault of the "digital revolution". I think it could be equally argued that the "digital revolution" came about partly because album craftsmaship went in the tank. Chicken or egg? Did the loss of great albums cause people to seek out singles, or did people wanting singles cause the art of album making to decrease. I'd argue the former. It seems like everything reported regarding the drive towards mp3 singles was the fact that people didn't like buying an entire album when it turned out most of it was crap.
