no, i won't download those tracks

A reviewer in the Post today talks about the latest album by My Chemical Romance, "The Black Parade." She notes it is a "pop-operatic concept album," about a dying man. All the songs are linked and form a story.

And at the end of the article about this concept album, the Post flags a few individual tracks to download.

No thanks. I prefer my music in album-sized chunks. Even on releases that aren't explicitly concept albums, like "The Black Parade" or "Dark Side of the Moon" or "American Idiot," there are usually connections between the songs that make hearing the whole album more satisfying than individual songs.
