This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

The Answer is "No"
SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT - cp.sonybmg.com/xcp:

"1. Will this disc play on my computer?

Yes. This disc is compatible with both PC and Mac.

PC Users: When listening to music directly off the disc, you must use the player provided on the disc. Attempting to play the audio on the disc (while the disc is spinning in the computer drive) with another player (i.e. Windows Media Player, Real Player, iTunes) will result in distorted sound.

Mac Users: This disc will behave like a traditional CD in a Mac."

Then the answer is "NO, IT DOESN'T FUCKING WORK!!!"

I mean, if the audio sounds distorted when I play it in the player of MY CHOICE, then screw you, I'm not going to purchase a crippled disc.

The really sad part? In one instance, with My Morning Jacket, neither the band or the label knew that their release would be issued with new copy protection that would render it useless to people wanting to transfer their music to their iPods.

We at ATO Records are aware of the problems being experienced by certain fans due to the copy-protection of our distributor. Neither we nor our artists ever gave permission for the use of this technology, nor is it our distributor's opinion that they need our permission. Wherever it is our decision, we will forego use of copy-protection, just as we have in the past.


We can not apologize enough for the difficulties you've encountered trying to experience the disc you've purchased. We hope you'll continue to have a long and rewarding experience with music after this regrettable situation is sorted out.

Its the issue that never seems to die. People (consumers) want greater freedom to copy and transfer music, companies, like Sony, want to restrict the use of that purchased music in a lame attempt to corral you into using their portable products.
