Do you think modern music is as good as it used to be?

    In the 50s, there was legendary rock and roll, in the 60s the Beatles, Rolling Stones and a host of others, in the 70s some fine progressive blues and hard rock bands, even the 80s had some good stuff, e.g. from Duran Duran, U2, AC/DC.

    But somehow, it seems to me that light music has been getting progressively worse over time, and reached the point that nowadays I can hardly find anything to listen to.

    Do you feel the same, or am I just getting old?

    1 - You are getting old. :wheelchair: :D
    2 - Tastes change as you get older.
    3 - Music is poo today. I may happen across a gem once in a blue moon. I actually look backwards to find music i never listened to before, or didnt listen to much. Giorgio Moroder, Yello, come to mind. :)

    When you play an instrument, you learn to appreciate many different styles of music.

    Damn i just love this song, and this lyric -

    And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
    And I looked and behold, a pale horse
    And his name that sat on him was Death
    And Hell followed with him.

    Auto Tune and most modern day Synthesized instruments dominate the majority of recording studios. I prefer to go to a live concert where instruments are actually being play by a musician.

    It's true that live concerts have a special appeal and are also a life's experience. Nevertheless, studio recordings under controlled ideal conditions invariably sound better.

    @Katz: If you've ever listened to some of the older prog bands perform live, then you know it's all about the talent of the musicians.

    e.g: Gentle Giant, Focus, The Who, Jethro Tull, Allen Holdsworth.

    These musicians are -AWESOME-! I've seen them all live.
