If you guys haven't heard Animal Collective, I strongly recommend you do. "My Girls" is a good one to listen to first. They're my favorite band of the last five years.

There's still plenty of great music (although honestly most of my favorite groups, such as Radiohead and The Strokes, have released some pretty poor albums in the last year or so). The reason that most mainstream music on the radio sucks is that artists can rarely afford to take chances. With music piracy being as prevalent as it is, major label artists have to play it safe in regards to songwriting. At the same time, MTV pushes the idea that image is more important than talent. The rate of decline has accelerated in the last 10 years and especially in the last 5 years. However, we've still had:

Radiohead (particularly with Kid A)

System of a Down

The Strokes

Arcade Fire

Wilco

And various other bands and artists releasing creative and interesting music.



 

 

Music is great! Have you not seen the Zucas thread? That is proof enough that there is good music still. Oh and Mordred made a best music of 2011 as well. Don't make me post examples.

Pretty much agree with what you said music as a whole has been on a downward trend when it comes to quality since the early 90's. The majority of music I listen too is from before the 90's.



no the quality doesn't go downward in general only maybe the kind of music you hear and the music shown on tv (who is watching tv anymore?) but therefore there are new kinds of music which weren't even there before the 2000s. if you don't like it it's ok but that doesn't mean the quality is worse.

btw this guy combined with this music is much better than your 80s rock^^

I look at music like this.
There's no bad genre, just differing tastes. We live in a pop heavy music world right now. Beyonce, Gaga, Timberlake, Rihanna, Katy Perry etc. It's just what's "in" right now. Early 90's was grunge. Late 90's was rock and boy bands. Now it's pop. There's some quality pop out there, but if it's not your style then you're gonna say the 00's suck.

I however enjoy the current music scene. I teach hip hop so the abundance of good pop and hip hop songs with a good beat is greatly welcomed. I have a friend at work who hates pop and is more of a punk guy, and he has a lot of great bands he listens to as well. You just gotta know where to look and be open to new ideas.



maybe in the video above you, there are some steps you could use for your hip hop ;)



To be honest I'm listening to more and more orchestral music now-a-days... I'm always on the lookout for an excellent movie soundtrack (recently bought 'The King's Speech' and 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe' and they're both excellent.) as well as game soundtracks ('Disney's Epic Mickey' soundtrack is superb).

As for bands... I recently discovered Within Temptation and I've become a big fan of their music (Favorite CD of theirs is 'The Silent Force'). I've also been listening to Evanescence's new CD, and I'm also a big fan of Muse's stuff (Their three part Exogenesis Syphony is fantastic on their newest CD).
