What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

I actually knew all of that from numerous sources but nice to see it all under one roof so to speak.

There is still good music out there but it's not pop and you have to search for it.

Pop is awful and with two writers and the same formula, no wonder it's so bland.

A slow culling of talent and innovation in favor of conformity.

Concentration of media ownership (also known as media consolidation or media convergence) is a process whereby progressively fewer individuals or organizations control increasing shares of the mass media.[1] Contemporary research demonstrates increasing levels of consolidation, with many media industries already highly concentrated and dominated by a very small number of firms.[2][3]

Globally, large media conglomerates include National Amusements (Viacom and CBS Corporation), Time Warner, 21st Century Fox, Sony, Comcast, The Walt Disney Company, AT&T, Hearst Communications, MGM Holdings, NBCUniversal, Turner Broadcasting System, New Fox, Grupo Globo (South America) and Lagardère Group.[4][5][6]

As of 2015, Comcast Corporation is the largest media conglomerate in the US, with The Walt Disney Company, News Corp and Time Warner ranking second, third and fourth respectively.[7]

In nations described as authoritarian by most international think-tanks and NGOs, media ownership is generally something very close to the complete state control over information in direct or indirect ways.

The majority of everything everywhere is the same bland thing over and over.

The few modern music songs I found actually sounded exactly as past artists/songs from the late 60's and 70's, so I will stick with the originals from that time era.

I assumed that it was just me getting old. I tried twice to watch a video of that EuroVision winning song, and I couldn't stand to watch or listen to it.

I agree with the soullessness of it all, most pop music sounds the same and mixed louder than it should be.

Can't be arsed to actively listen anymore...not for a
long time.

Same arrangement, same samples, same autotuner,
same over-compression - it's the same friggin song,
whenever you happen to hear something/anything
from the top 100.

Deadly boring.
