More than the sum of it's singles

Listened to a couple of whole albums on the 2 hour trip back from my parents' place tonight. Was listening to Live's "The distance to here" and thought to myself "There's scarcely even a sniff of filler on this disc". It an actual album that works end-to-end, in fact probably more so than as a bunch of individual tracks.

So do (m)any young-uns buys or listen to albums these days, or has the 99c track on iTunes destroyed this experience for future generations?

Here endeth the old-guy-back-in-my-day rant. Feel free to go all internet-music-critic if you must, but the particular album isn't really the point. Get off my lawn.
