It seems like no matter what group of people you’re with, at some point you hear some variation of this phrase mentioned: “All modern music sucks, the old stuff is way better.”
Saying that there’s no good music anymore is just an insult to the music world, and the brilliant artists who are really putting the time and effort into putting out solid, non generic music out there for us to enjoy. It is my hope that mainstream music will soon end this seemingly endless spew of auto-tuned junk and bring in these true artists so that we can listen to good music on the radio again. Without having to turn to the “Classics” station.
It may seem like I’m just ranting, and perhaps I am a bit, but I feel like you would agree with me if you turn off KIIS FM and searched the Indie and Underground scenes. Just give it a shot, forget about drops or “Can you dance to it?” for once, and actually take the time to enjoy the true art for that is MUSIC.
Okay, okay, rant finished, as you were.
