Just listen to Led Zeppelin 1 and then Deep Purple's The Book of Taliesyn.
Then tell me who the real rip off is.....

All I know is that I wrote Stairway to Heaven years before I was born, and I still have yet to see a single royalty check.

Damn.

These are this week's Top 100 songs, according to Billboard. I don't recognize a single one of them, nor do I recognize most of the "artists" associated with them.

I used to wonder whether music was getting worse or if that perception is just the natural effect of getting older. You know what? I no longer care.
This "music" is garbage. All of it.

I think it's actually getting worse.

It is funny, I actually read a damn good theory about it.

See, recording music albums is not really profitable anymore, with some exceptions. In the old days, you could afford to hire a whole orchestra in order to record your Power Metal thematic album, with a booklet telling you a complex story, opera pros, you name it. You spent six figures in making the damn album, and it fucking showed.

Now it is hard to sell CDs, so disco houses won't allow your power metal band to spend more than 35k recording. No more orchestras, no more weeks trying to record the same track until it is fucking perfect and it makes the audience fall on their knees, tearing their clothes appart at the tragic music they are listening to. So you end up recording something that is cheap to produce, it is catchy enough to sell, and it is unvariably something you put in the background but don't pay much attention to. Because it is not really good enough to be worthy of much respect.

Interesting thoughts. I've believed for a while now that the 1996 regulatory change consolidated radio stations into the hands of so few companies that mainstream music is now manufactured rather than created.

I think it has been that way for a while. At the very least, I have heard that many groups from the 90s were "designer bands". Which means, some marketing expert assembled the band and created their image. Some of those bands are quite ok actually, but the point of those bands is to sell :-)

Then there are the weirdos like Turilli, producing albums at a loss from their own pocket because they can afford it and because they have the mission of making music that is fucking epicawesome.
