Y ou know, I almost reviewed this. Almost. But I have a little more respect for my time. For our time, really. Are Their Greatest Hits great? Please. Itís sold over 29 million copies in the US to date. 29 million. What are the chances you donít already own it, donít already have an opinion on it? Better to lecture you on the importance of breathing. (You really should.) If only piracy werenít crippling the recording industry, that 29 million might have swelled to 30 million. Fortunately, the RIAA is on it. Theyíve identified the 12 piracy cities (not to be confused with the pirate cities like Parrotsburgh and Aarghlington) where music piracy is the most, um, hot. (Apparently, it has a temperature.) Actually, the RIAA press release called them ďhavensĒ for music piracy (and no, New Haven wasnít on the list, since itís technically a hovel). The release goes on to state that 95% of all pirated music seized last year was urban or Latin music. (Crickets.) So, people, those pirated Eagles CDs are probably still out there. Theyíre still (because theyíre only arresting black and hispanic people) out there. Only kidding, since piracy is serious stuff. The idea of people making CDs in some Burner Lab in the United States without paying royalties sickens me. Thatís just not the American way. Unless they move the lab to China and staff it with children, in which case Iím fine with it. Itís their greatest hits, people. Itís not like you were going to get anything useful out of the review anyway. Just let it go.
