Calling in administrators is not strictly the same as directly going out of business, additionally I think its flat out dumb to hail having less choice and fewer companies vying for a market share a good thing...

I was hoping for an informative article on business and the process of bankruptcy. Instead it's some cracker jack ranting in a ridiculous accent.

I'm not worried since the only times I've ordered from HMV was from Japan, and HMV Japan will remain as the sales for physical copies is still going strong over there. Not sure why Japan's attitude toward physical copies are so different from the western world and whatnot. After all there is a reason so many artists want to go to Japan, since CD sales are crazy there.

HMV UK is the division that's in trouble. HMV Canada and Japan are still going strong as they are owned by different parties than the UK parent.
