Starbucks’s Second Wave

"Starbucks’s Second Wave"


I saw this album on sale at Starbucks yesterday and damn if I wasn’t tempted to buy it. At the end of the day, the inherent ickiness of buying an album at Starbucks wasn’t even the tipping point — I just haven’t bought a physical CD in years and it seems too late in history to start doing it again. In particular, buying a physical compilation CD just doesn’t really make sense — I have a lot of these songs already and could assemble the playlist easily enough by just buying a few additional tracks.

Ackerman, lost in his archives, remarked that “the Germans must have a word for the heartbreak you experience when you see that some of your favorite music is on sale at Starbucks.”
