Subject: The Future Of Music...

Written By: Criz on 04/22/10 at 1:39 pm

So over the last 10-15 years, the way in which we consume music has radically changed. We've swapped our CDs for mini-discs and then to mp3s. We've gone from burning to digitally putting our music on our Ipods. We have Spotify and last.fm now - you can actually type in a genre to play, or get recommendations based on your own music via the use of the latter. It's incredible how much my consumption of music has changed as 15 years ago I was the girl who used to listen to the Top 40 and record her favourite songs on cassette.

So what's new and interesting out there -  and what do we think is going to happen for music?

Man,I wish the days of cassette tapes will still be around,It's too bad they're going out of style because people are listening to music via Internet nowadays.

What do you mean going out of style?  You can't even buy new cassette anymore.  Even blank ones are becoming scarce.

Yeah, but not new ones.  Today's music releases are not even made on cassette because not enough people would buy them to make it worth while

The future of music...let's see...

Michael Jackson died last year and this year Justin Beibeir is the hot thing now.

I give music maybe 6 months at best. Yes, it will DIE before theworld  itself (supposedly) ends in 2012.

Music died long before MJ did. It died around 1990. I just don't understand today's music at all. Maybe I'm getting old. :-[

Justin Beiber is just a teen idol for Generation Z. Baby Boomers, Generation X and Y all had their teen-idols too.

It has got ups and downs. In my opinion: Up: 1988-1993. Down: 1994-1998 (strangely, that was almost exactly my high school period...). Up: 1999-2005. Down: 2006-now.

And the future? I don't have any idea, but I join the Ke$ha-haters.  8-P

The advantage of the good old cassette taoe era was: Less zapping. In the pre mp3 era, people listened more carefully to the music they owned (in general), because they simpley owned less. In general, music seems to have become more disposable to many people.

On the flip side of things, it should be interesting to see how home recording technology evolves over the next decade. As time goes on and the technology advances, it will become easier and less expensive for amateur musicians to make hi-quality recordings of their music.

You also have 1983-1988 era which had cool music,sort of like the electronic era.

Ok  - there is a mass load of sh***y music out there, but seriously - there are some great artists that just aren't in the mainstream. You just have to search for them. I think the 99-03 era was bad - but since then I think popular music have got progressively better, if you stay away from looking at the charts. You just have to know where to look. And even is the charts - some great music does make it there too. Some!


Yes that is true. Even though I believe the MAJORITY of music since 2003 has been complete dog sh*t, that doesn't mean that ALL music is. There's still good music out there. You just have to wade through the sh*t to find it.

I really liked the music of 1988-89, but 1990-91 had a brief down time. After that, I'd say the rest of the 90's was good. 2001-02 was another down time, 2003-05 were good, and pretty much everything since 2006 was bad to mediocre (with the exception of 2008 to mid 2009).

Post 2005-2006 is definitely inferior and mostly downhill. Few bright spots here and there but 2010 has been a very dull year so far on the music side.

Don't forget the sounds of the early 80's,that era had good music too.

I like" La Roux", "MGMT", and "Lady GaGa" and thats basically it of todays mainstream artists. Jennifer Hudson I think she has a nice voice. Her last album didn;t enjoy very much success  because of by very unexpected deaths in her family. I like that "Walkin On The Moon" song by "The Dream" that was put out last year.

Yes, 2010 has been very dull. It is up there with 2006 and 2002 for the worst years in music. It is now May and I only have 12 songs on my playlist for this year, and most of them are mediocre at best. The first few are 2009 holdovers like "Krazy" by Pitbull, "Shots" by LMFAO, and "Imma Be" by B.E.P. Also, 2 songs on that playlist are by Ke$ha, as much as I hate to admit it. The song "Nothing on You" by B.o.B. finally grew on me. Hopefully things will turn around in the summer, but I have a feeling we'll have to wait until 2011 or 12 to hear some good music again. The Billboard charts have been looking like Groundhog Day, the same ranking every week for like 3 months with nothing new added.

When talking of pop music - they're some of the good artists that are out there. Ellie Goulding, Little Boots, Ladyhawke, Laura Marling, Santogold etc... are all pretty good too. Also bands like Editors, Kings of Leon, Maximo Park etc... have had some good stuff out over the last year

2010 has had plenty of good music, just nothing that has caught on in the Billboard Hot 100.  I do agree that as far as radio hits, its been a very dull year.  Its now May and late-2009 holdovers are just finally starting to seep out of power rotation (this usually happens in February).  The problem is just because a song is good doesn't mean it will ever see the radio airwaves.  It has to have huge financial backing and promotion in order to make it into the Hot 100.

2010 is generic, cheesy, boring, bland, etc. in the pop sector. About 95% of the good songs are all Lady GaGa. Most of the rest sucks. I really haven't even been paying that much attention this year and I usually follow everything.

Definitely was a great time for music. But a lot of the styles of the 80s are fairly prominent now in music. White Lies - Farewell To The Fairground  for example is a song that sounds very early 80s/German-esque synthy!
