no i compared two songs and came to the conclusion that they share similar aspects and therefor could be under the same banner or genre.
that's so emotional and japanese
I always feel dreadfully uncultured because I just listen to whatever's catchy. I am no doubt what's wrong with the youth of today.
something catchy and powerful requires just as much effort and sophistication as being obtuse and difficult.
Even the people who help me discover great things moan about how the little artists aren't being discovered.
Who cares, if I am the one discovering them, they should be happy.
The individuals matter the most, nobody feels good shouting from the roof tops and not being heard.
Every generation has it's gems and craps; some generations just have more of one than the other. Sometimes you need to dig through the manure piles to find the diamonds, and other times the rubies are floating atop a shallow sea of diarrhea.
All in all, you need to have the eyes to see the gems, and the nose to smell the shit. Otherwise you'd need to rely on touch; and that method is far less pleasant than the others, since try as you might to find the hard crystals, you'll eventually end up with hands stained with the gross softness.
The way some feel that their generation is crap is that they end up relying too much on their musical noses, and are so overwhelmed by the vile stench that they fail to see the glistering sparkles of the diamonds in the rough.
I would have to say most modern day music is terrible. I mean, you don't even need to have talent. You just need to be able to write good lyrics, say them, and auto-tune. There are good musicians and bands such as Johnathan Coulton, Maroon 5, Rammstein, etc. My list could go on, but I do think most modern music is terrible.
Can you actually TRY to have a proper debate instead of sprouting some mindless rubbish that only the mentally degenerate believe?
-snip- god dammit post dates. The main reason I hate today's shit music is back then the message was't about bitches, hoes and boats and money type of shit
I say people aren't looking hard enough. There are so many incredible artists out there that no one notices because they're so wrapped up in how bad some other ones are.
that is a genre.
Music in this generation, for the most part, has no logic or actual musicality put into it at all. Let's look at something like this:
Name one contemporary piece that can compare to logic of this.
Everything Bach, and other composers of their generations wrote took time, patience, and logic. Nowadays, musicians can rely on electronics to hide their 'talent' and to create nice beats for them in a few weeks. Everything musicians did in the past was constructed with every brick in the right spot. Granted Bach did have to hand-write all his pieces, but the actual performance base of the music relied on everyone's cooperation to know their part perfectly.
Music and logic nowadays are going down the drain. Most people ignore rules and just plop notes on a page and experiment with how things sound and just go for it. Classical masterminds crafted their music with great, incomparable precision.
