Are All-You-Can-Eat Music Subscriptions the Future of Music Sales?

There is a compelling post by CNet’s Matt Asay exploring the various potential of future music business models.

So I think the “adoption tax” model is promising. The future is flat-rate: you subscribe, you forget about paying for individual transactions, you enjoy more music than you ever have before.

While I certainly see the appeal of this sort of approach I just canceled my cable TV service because the all-you-can-eat approach wasn’t worth the cost – and, of course, because of all of the alternative means to get that content.

Right now, the same is true for music.  There are so many free ways (both legal and piratey) to acquire music right now that the idea of adding a new monthly music bill to my accounting seems like a stretch.
