I haven't bought a CD in over a year------there is no music out here that move me enough to pay 18 dollars for a CD

I'm 45 years old------and I grew up on music where people played instruments and they could actually sing

What ever happen to real music?

Listen to samples, this guy is very very good.

The lead singer from Soul Coughing, but the music is very different.

We are about the same age, I have downloaded a few albums this year, they are out there, just not mainstream.

PS also depends what your into.

David Gilmore's new album is very good!
Mark Knophler and Emmy lou Harris have a great album out.

just don't depend on the radio for good music. that's not music, that's an image that companies can sell. the internet is an awesome place to find good stuff.

record labels killed good music...they dont care about quality anymore, just as long as that artist has a hit song or 2

:yeahthat: Record companies need to take more responsibility for putting out garbage.After all it wouldnt get put out if they wouldnt release it,but of course the artists take most of the heat.Its a business they only care about sales not talent.

Linkin Park's new album is coming out this summer. I know you guys are gonna say they are "mainsteam" and all that, but I like them. The last metal album I have really bought is Meteora by LP.

Dude, you should be flogged for calling Linkin Park "metal". :shakeno:

Actually, as far as metal goes this is probably the best time for it since the early 80's. The hair bands have long since gone, grunge died as everyone knew it would, and the metal underground is thriving.

I'm diggin' it. :wink:

Both Tombztone and Livesay will be recorded at the end of the summer bro. My plate is FULL right now! :lol:

You already know what Livesay sounds like, and as for Tombztone...think of a cross between Judas Priest and ZZ Top. Yea, I know it sounds strange, but it works. :D

So now...go get yourself some Vanden Plas, Primal Fear, Pink Cream 69 and Nocturnal Rites to start. :rawk:

i've been actually hearing a lot of music i like on myspace, and i don't even have to go diggin' (though i could probabaly find more if i did). i've gotten friend invites from a bunch of bands, and most of them sound pretty good. not sure what kinda stuff you're into, but here's a couple i have been really getting into (and if i can scrounge up some cash would like to buy some of their stuff)

Where has the good music gone? Follow the money trail. Music companies (really all companies) have been watering down our music, art, TV and morals for years all to make a dollar. Recently it seems to have gotten worse, when a Britney Spears, Nirvana or any other band becomes popular the music companies will go out and find as many of "the next big thing" as they can, while watering down what made the artists original and compelling in the first place. Everything is the same and bland, so much so that you can't tell the difference between the artists. How many grunge bands popped up after Nirvana's Nevermind? Years later I am still trying to recover from the flannel invasion and memories of bands like Weezer. How many Pop Tarts popped up after Britney Spears became a household name? So many that my 13 year old niece can't even tell the difference. And because of the competition, all of the "cute girls next door" are now becoming music video pornstars to try and make a name for themselves. Korn made it big and we are subjected to bands like what you hear on the radio today, sludge rock. Nothing of any importance is being said in any of these songs, infact I hear a lot of anger and frustration being regurgitated from song to song and band to band. Noone is original or innovative anymore. It's sad to see what people think is edgy and progressive. I have my collection of cd's that I listen to, everything from Johnny Cash to Marylin Manson to Slayer to the Beatles and that is all that I will be listening to until someone comes along and knocks me off of my feet.

Not as much as I did back in the day. Ever since his accident his playing has become predictable.


:shakeno: :shakeno: :shakeno:
Why are you shaking your head?

Dude, EVERY grunge band sounded the same...not a good formula for staying power. Same thing happened to hair bands.

Whenever there's a genre where you can't tell one band from the other, it dies quickly. That's just a fact, whether you like it or want to believe it or not.

yes the mainstream rock these days is a combination of nirvana and korn, which is really painful. or just talentless hacks like nickleback.

There isn't much talent at mainstream right now. Personally, I like singer/songwriters. The majority of my playlist is made up of older music. I still like some current bands like Weezer, Chili Peppers and Audioslave.

Mainstream rap, is crap. Everytime you turn around, some artists is beefing supposedly with another artist when all it actually is a big freakin act to sell records. The real talent in rap is in the underground.

Most of the mainstream rock coming out today talk about sob crying stories, plus their chord structures sound the same.:shakeno: Straight garbage for the most part. Radio killed the TRUE musician. Sad to say.
