I’m sorry for once again showing my age but I very much agree with this essay, especially this:

Our social media timelines and YouTube feeds and video streaming services all employ the conceit, if not the science, of shuffle and randomness to keep us looking and listening, consuming without going through the work of figuring out what to consume.

For better or worse, I will never stop being an album person.
