i can only speak for myself, but i have far more physical media then
"digital audio". christian, i haven't stated that a) you have a narrow view
and b) i also haven't stated that having more digital media is wrong.

all i'm saying is that with "digital audio" you have the possibility of
deleting single tracks and "taking apart" a work in itself into different
sections (or tracks). if you listen to something and then decide which
tracks from an album you're going to keep and which not,  then you're
basing your decision making on what your approach to that particular
music is at that particular time... that's what i meant with narrowing
the view down... as i explained before i often rediscover tracks which
are older and suddenly i like them alot because out of whatever reason.
if i would have decided earlier on to delete that track i would never have
the possibility of redescovering things.

also in my opinion, it's very important why tracks are on one album and
why they are sequenced as they are and why they have a certain length, etc.
i would never rearrange tracks of an album in a different order or change
the flow of that... if it doesn't fit right together then it's not a good
album. pretty simple...
