The post argues -- slanted by the interviewee in favor of record labels -- why labels are more beneficial to mass appeal for an artist's career than doing it yourself.
I can understand, and even agree with many of the points made, but I definitely think, as an artist, you have to have a clear vision of what you want from your music career before worrying about whether or not pursing a label deal is the best route to realize your vision. In some cases, a label will definitely be the way to go. In others, a label would not even be worth considering.
