    as for why i'm taking it personally, it's 9 years of pent up rage due to seeing people shit on artists because "old music is better durr hurr." it's a really old act that i'm tired of seeing.

    also the post you quoted isn't addressing you

    I really dislike it when people say 't's all been done/said'; that cannot possibly be true.

    Listen to Haydn, then listen to Scriabin...both wrote piano music, but sound completely different, so it's not that instruments haven't changed.

    We're just in a fallow period creatively. The next big thing will shock everything, I'm sure.

    Oh, I do hope so. It has to get better at some point, because I'm honestly not sure how it could get any worse. The first time I heard "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea, I thought it was a joke. But the joke was on me, because it was real. ALL TOO REAL.

    Too many bands are hung up on creating the next hit song (get rich quick) and not placing their efforts on creating a fresh and solid album with substance. I blame pop culture, because the masses eat shitty music up. They love it, and it's making some people very wealthy. There is still a lot of good music being created, but like others have mentioned, you'll need to dig a little deeper and find new avenues in order to discover and explore these bands... They won't be mentioned on TV and they won't be mentioned on the radio.

    2004 music does stand out next to 2014 music. There have been some shifts in the overall sound (a whole lot more EDM elements nowadays, for one). But yes, it doesn't stand out as much as 1988 music in 1998. There's a lot of remixing of older styles in 2010s music. And yes, a lot of selling out to reach out to as many people as possible.

    Three creative bands in my opinion of the last decade or so:

    Jack White
    The Killers
    One Republic
    Coldplay
    Lack of popularity kills it though. If people can't make money making music then they are likely to invest time in things other things. I've listened to some of the videos above (not all yet). Some is interesting. Some seems rather monotonous and repetitive and given the number of views which is an indication of lack of popularity, well it's hard to see how long the bands will last or stay together. If Pink Floyd didn't make any money on their records, I don't think they would have lasted very long let alone hone that music over a period of time to the level of excellence they had.

    I think creativity may have topped out in the '70s.

    It's like Charles Krauthammer said, real life overtakes parody.

Before MTV (which, ironically, isn't even about music anymore), music was judged more by talent than looks. Today, it's the complete opposite. Nobody cares if your music is crap, as long as you have visual appeal. That's why all the most popular "artists" rely on sex. Because it really does sell. Meanwhile, genuinely talented musicians usually get pushed to the bottom of the charts if they're not attractive.

    To agree with @Inis Mona, there is some good music out there. It just doesn't get played on the radio.
    I think we tend to misjudge the lack of creativity in music past because we remember what time saw fit to preserve. We do not remember the boring folk musicians, the ten thousand Beatle copycats, vapid Spectorites, shitty punk bands, and German Schlagersänger of the 70s. Mass media was always for the masses. It is just that globalisation has produced bigger media phenomena for bigger masses because the common denominator for what works gets smaller the bigger the audience becomes. As you said yourself, talented musicians are not gone; they are just not on the top of the charts.
