It be flat
The majority of music out there nowadays is MEDIOCRE. That's it. What happened to quality? What happened to excellence? They were put to the side in favor of style, that's what. Because a certain style, the in style, is apparently more important than sounding your best/playing your best. Everyone has to copy someone else's style. Guess what? The beautiful thing about individuality is that everyone comes with their OWN sound. Their OWN flavor. But that's put aside for the IN style. And for mediocrity. Give me some quality music I can listen to and enjoy actual different layers, appreciate the genius of the composer. If you can. I'm not saying that all I can appreciate is "classical" music, but the genius of Bach and Handel is missing in this age of music. I know it's bad when an animated movie soundtrack is refreshing. Have you listened to The Prince of Egypt soundtrack? Amazing - here's an idea for Broadway.
