I think the most impressive thing is that they survived massive shifts in medium and marketing. When they started, it was all vinyl, radio charts, and word of mouth. They shifted to CD and become a college radio staple in the 80s. CDs and MTV and national entertainment magazines in the late 80s and 90s. I remember when they started putting together their website in 2000 in anticipation of ATYCLB, and then of course the shift to MP3 and iTunes through the end of that decade. Now, radio play couldn't be less relevant. Online streaming is where it's at. Vinyl is making a comeback (yes!)
They just need to rerelease ab, zoo, pop, atyclb, htdaab and nloth on vinyl so I can round out my collection.
