    Yes, the boy bands were better than the crap misguided tweens and teens listen to today. Quality music but had that wow factor that they would love.

    Ahh, you have shit nowadays in USA too ? seems it's not only in France with TV bigbrother's show to vote for false singers [​IMG]
    And they wonder why they are selling less CD .. oh wait ! Piracy of course, not their fault [​IMG]


    ontopic, I'm listening to game/anime's OST and orchestral music (but no classical period like mozart or beth.)

    Boy bands were 100% better than the shit we have these days in TV. It's mostly Britney Spears being relived through Miley Cyrus, the real britney spears coming back, Jonas Brothers talking about how they want a real relationship and love you from the bottom of their hearts but aren't ready to have sex with you because it's not religiously correct, emo kids screaming about how their life sucks and they want to kill themselves while they make millions of dollars off the teenage retards who buy that shit, rap still sucking for the most part, and that's pretty much it.
    Well there's also screamo bullshit and metal getting even gayer and more mainstream, oh and 80% of the people you know are now 'hipsters' (but they all just search the internet for obscure bands that sound like shit and say they're good just because).

    I think the last good album I've heard was probably Owl City's Ocean Eyes.

    I agreed with everything you said up until "I think the last good album I've heard was probably Owl City's Ocean Eyes." I really hope you are kidding. You bust on all this stuff and how its awful and just them making money and stuff and then you comment on how you like Owl City.

    I like most music that isn't about stupid shit.

    Owl City is actually pretty decent. I don't exclusively like hipster trash, but it's a pretty good album, decently upbeat, and he actually has a voice I can hear over the music and decipher what he's saying.

    I by no means listen to any genre exclusively at all, I actually prefer Country to most stuff these days, but I do find some bands in most genres that are good (I like Agalloch despite being metal).

    Unless of course you meant there's supposed to be something wrong with that album besides the genre.

    I just think its terrible, its like everything bad in music nowadays added in one album. All the shitty pop, all the shitty catchy music, the catchy words, and on top of that the guy wants to be hugged by 1,000 fireflies. Thats just terrible, I can't believe any guy would ever write about that... but thats just my opinion.

    As for Agalloch, they are amazing, I love them [​IMG] Dead Winter Days is amazing!

    When you say that the Backstreet Boys are better than Tokio Hotel or Paramore or FUCKING Nickelback, that doesn't change the fact that they all make bad music.

    For the most part, pop music is uninteresting.

    It's not so much the music associated with rap but its the people who generally listen to it that bugs me (Not that the music is that good anyway).

    Currently listening to The Killers and Passion Pit. Highly recommend Passion Pit for people looking for something a little different. [​IMG]
