this thread probably wont be as popular as the things you hate most about music thread, but thats just because its easier to hate shit then to actually understand it.

i like the fact that todays music has broken away from classification and people are really stretching to categorize it for their own convenience. I like how theres something in each "genre" that is accessible and can help shine light on other songs/bands that you wouldnt normally get into. the internet is the best thing to happen to music ever. and so is tool (well that may be a little biased ).

so post if you want, but im just high and felt like writing that.
Tool kicks ass

My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy is definitely bringing back true moshpits, and Panic! At the disco for when I want to listen to some shred.


I don't think Panic! at the Disco and shred belong in the same sentence.

Everything. The variety, the easy accesibility via torrents and limewire, the consistency... everything.

Haha sarcasm FTW!


I really like the the costs of recording have gone down due to technology advances. I also like the fact that a bunch of old timers are giving away old recording equipment for free or next to nothing.

I really like the mix and increasing surprising talent that ( SOME ) bands and artists come up with.

I like the fusion of genres too..

What I DISLIKE...are groups like the PUSSY CAT DOLLS who dont write or have anything to do with the music they perform..they are simply dancers and "singers"..well one is a singer..the rest..are just dancing sluts waiting to be passed around by men at an after party.
I am Cool Thanks for listening.

The infinite variety of guitars, amps, effects, and recording technology available today is pretty incredible.

Meh, I'm more of a funk man myself, but I love acoustic stuff and it's really coming back. So I guess the reincarnation of Alt. Acoustic music or the whole piano rock thing.

+1

Although I'm not much of a funk only guy, if you mix it with punk or something I like it, but I'm really glad acoustic is coming back too.

Lots of other bands/artists.

I like the fact that there's many more lyrically oriented bands these days. It's not all about sex, drugs, and guitar solos. I would've hated the 70s (barring Paul Simon, Bob Dylan, and a few other talented lyricists). I like the fact that music is far more accessible to people, so you can discover tons of great bands. I love lots of things about music today.

Guitar solos are starting to die, and it's about time. Cool guitars are always welcome in music. But cool guitars for me don't mean shredding your ass off. Inventive guitar work is more important than soloing - getting a noise out of your guitar that sounds different. ****ing around with your settings to create real noise.
Poor advice.

Totally agree.

Heavy music is getting more mainstream attention. Thus more sponsors, concerts and exposure not only for the mainstream heavy bands, but underground acts that fans of the mainstream bands are introduced to.
#17
There is more variety and people are focussing more on riffs and their sound than how they look and stuff....

How can you say that the 70's were the greatest time for lyrics!!

Plus The Proclaimers how can you not love there twinness!

Hm, not very much I like with music today. Perhaps that's quite varied and a lot of attention on music which is a great thing. Too bad the attention is on the wrong genres (IMO).
