Launch Radio Networks has issued the following report: 10 YEARS recently made an EP of four acoustic tracks available exclusively through the iTunes online music store. While he likes the idea of selling music digitally, 10 YEARS singer Jesse Hasek told Launch that he doesn't see it replacing CDs. "I mean, that could very possibly happen, but me personally, I guess you could call me old-fashioned," he said. "I'm still into buying records and having something tangible in my hand, and flipping through the booklet and looking at the artwork and the lyrics. But I think it's a really convenient tool for everyone to tap into if it's done right."

The digital EP includes unplugged versions of the band's first rock radio hit, "Wasteland", as well as its current single, "Through The Iris".

Umm maybe like Dark New Day (sound wise)? They are like rock/alternative (10 Years, radio rock sound). I agree with what he said about loking through a cd booklet. I rather buy cds. However, the great thing about downloading is that you can preview songs before you buy the whole cd so you aren't buying total crap for the sake of one song.

thanks, azura, i'll check them out on myspace or something in a bit. couldnt agree more about liking to hold something tangible when I purchase music - I really hope CD's don't go out, or at least that whatever replaces them will still have the tangible good and booklet and all that. I mean, I know lyrics and all that aren't meant to matter, but I enjoy reading through them nonetheless.

I don't have time to even look at the inserts anymore, but I'd much rather have something I can play in the car and rip to the computer than some digital download that limits me to certain devices, that's for sure. Not to mention it is still compressed music and sub-CD quality you are paying for.

No doubt, the sound on a cd has more quality to it then the digital download of it. Amd it's funny b/c the thing about 10 yrs being on my itunes said that they were under the genre of pop music. I don't really believe that , I think the program had made a huge error about that
