 P2P users demand that Sony release Fiona Apple album

Fiona Apple's fans are downloading her music for free, then demanding that Sony release the album so they can pay for it:
"Extraordinary Machine" is an album that Apple finished over two years ago, but which was quickly shelved by the sad corporate drones over at Sony because they didn't "hear a single" and because it doesn't sound exactly like Norah Jones and because they're, well, corporate drones. They dictate cultural tastes based on relatively narrow and often deeply ignorant criteria related to marketing and money and fear of the new and the different. This is what they do....

But now, a hot new twist. The rest of "Extraordinary Machine" has, somehow, been leaked onto this fair Internet. All of it.... And fans have been whipping the tracks into high-quality MP3s and splaying them all over the Net....

Contrary to the whining of the RIAA, P2P isn't hurting her CD sales. In fact, P2P appears to be Fiona's only chance of actually getting her CD on store shelves at all.
