Don't diagrams look real cool when they are shaped like a camembert waiting to be spread over une baguette ? These nice moons show well how music sales have drastically changed format these last ten years: from CD sales to more and more digital formats and subscriptions to stream radios. One is also rather satisfied to see that digital sales of albums start to slowly pick up, after a few desolate years where punters were only buying digital singles. And guess what, vinyls seems to hit back too ! this said, the music industry isn't off the hook yet: attendance at concerts are getting lower (no wonder they are as the tickets price are rocketing to absurd levels) and one recent US study found out that people were in fact only listening to 19% of the Itunes music they had on their hard disc: the simple act of digitally buying music doesn't mean people are actually listening to it.
