    I've noticed as of late, so much of the modern music has the same quick beat without change, much like found in some of the Eastern Asia type of music? After a while it gets to me that there no change from start to finish.

    Got a couple of other POV's to make but will wait till later after some may chime in...and see if it's just my take on the new tunes out there.

    Curious.

    What gandra of music, I mean I can pick two new titles that are extremely different. Maybe it’s you gravitating to the same music that all new sounds alike

    Early Digital audio workstations tended to discourage tempo changes. It can be done more easily now, but you have to be aware of it's availability to dig down into the program to find it. Also, having everything lined up to the same beat makes editing easier.

    Maybe? It's the mainstream type of "gooey-type" of I can't live without you songs.

    Usually, I don't listen to much in the way of air waves during the day, but the new stuff seems to have a repetitive beat that seems not that important in the tunes that I've taken in. The beat just skips along without any change along the way as it plays out.

    Maybe it's me?

    The old guy in me wants to suggest that lazy is the new minimalism, but it could simply be market-driven.

    Tempo changes make for awkward dancing...let alone "Twerking" hahaha!

    I only notice the guitar is less prevalent in the new music I hear streamed at work.

    LOL - y'all crack me up. In the early 80's you heard Human League, etc and they were just as you described it. What is different is that you are getting older and turning into your parents.

    What guitar? The only thing remotely resembling a musical instrument in use on most modern pop releases is a keyboard.

    Kids these days wouldn't know good music if they heard it. A bunch of no-good-nicks, I tells ya. :rolleyes:

    I think the state of radio is the issue, not the music. If you're only listening to one source, you're only going to hear one type of music, typically. Stop listening to commercial radio! The diversity and availability of music these days is incredible. Put in the effort to find it, and you'll be greatly rewarded. Or, I suppose you could spend that time complaining online instead.

    As I said, Y'all are a bunch of old fogies. Your parents said the same thing about the music you were listening to when you were young.Is there junk music now - sure but there is also some great music and great artists out there. One just has to go out and listen with an open mind and heart.

    People are lauding Greta Van Fleet, which is a new group and a bunch of young men playing their hearts out. So, I guess based on what y'all have been saying their music is junk.

    Remember, there are no absolutes in this hobby.

    Completely and shamelessly aping another bands sound and aesthetic is a little sad. Being inspired by a band, and being to hear the influence in the music is one thing. Greta Van Fleet is another. I can not get on board with them.

    That's right! Old enough to have heard it the first time, anyway.

    OP have you noticed that we are all becoming older and most of us less and less tolerant of change as time goes by? That's what's up. My dad 's comment about our music in the "70's was, "The natives are restless again.: referring to what in his opinion was the repetitive beat - beat - beating of the drums in Led Zeppelin. Absolute monotone garbage in his accordion - polka - ass opinion. For every song you hate ten million kids are thinking, "Cool I can't wait to buy this." Sound familiar? I think you already know what I'm sayin' and this thread a bit trolly to see what comes out. Carry On.

    On the other hand, my dad liked a lot of the music I listened to when I was a kid. He bought "OK Computer" by Radiohead when he was in his mid-70s.

    Now that I re-read this, I'm not sure exactly what you're referring to -- got any examples?

    I'm a believer in 432 being what is best for Mankind.

    There are many songs with beats that are repetitive that I like but for me there's a time & place depending on my mood.

    But there's a lot of junk music thrown together just to make money off those unsuspecting masses just following what's "trending" or pushed on them by the "star Maker's" in the music industry.
