Score one for the album form. Pink Floyd just won a case against EMI guaranteeing their albums can never be broken up. Translation: If you want to put “Money” on your next mixtape, you’ll have to pick up the whole album. No singles, no solo mp3 sales, and no compromises.

It’s good news for anyone who’s worried about the long-player surviving into the internet age. (iTunes LP certainly wasn’t doing anyone any favors.) We suggest breaking out your copy of Animals in celebration—and don’t feel bad about skipping the filler.
