R.I.P The Album?

The New York Times is asking if the album as a musical format is not long for this world. This comes only a week or so after the 33 1/3 series of books analyzing a single album each announced 21 new volumes in their series.

Which leads me to ask? Will the study of album soon become like the study of paintings in a museum, an important yet not contemporary form venerated by history and academia?

What do you think?
