You don't even know what music I liked and i Never said I loved Mainstream music, all I said is everyone should be able to listen to the music they choose without being citizied, instead of bitching and moaning, why don't you guys suggest groups that no one has heard about according to there 'mainstream taste' like, The killers = The cure or Half Japanese. All I see here is us vs them, its just stupid.
Like if proposing music would change anything.
Thats your opinion, you should possibly listen to other artist instead of saying one artist is just like everyone else, Yes I do hate that song too .
I get those songs blasted in my ears all day long. I beleive I have enough musical abilities to compare the effort put in one song compared to another. Maybe I'm wrong, though.
Why does everyone assume that I like mainstream music and defended it? I was just saying that people should be able to listen to whatever they want. Trust me I used to get hell in school for listening to artists that weren't mainstream rap. Thats fine for me but this is no better tbh.
Because the only reason I would see someone not agreeing with this is that he listens to the mainstream crap. I think it's all black and white, there's no grey zone where you can say both a skilled artist and an unskilled artist have talent.
TBh, do you really want the same people that listen them to listen to your type of music.... really?
Actually, if everyone listened to music with the same amount of musical talent, everyone would have a better understanding of music.
In the past year I've been listening to a lot more of complex music, more saturated in terms of layers of instruments and melodies, and I've noticed how much my musical ear has developped... It's really quite different than from, say, a year ago. I can catch more details and separate the instruments in different layers just by listening to the music, something which I wasen't able to do before. Basically, listening to complex music will develop your ear.
