From Digital Music News:
2. Music may be getting worse, but that’s a good thing.
With ‘Gangnam Style’ at worldwide number 1 and ‘X Factor’ controlling the media, you may have lost all faith in the 2012 music buying public.
Do you spend a lot of time telling people how bad current music is? Don’t waste your energy. Every major trend like ‘X Factor’ makes real music lovers even more inclined to seek out something good to listen to.
Recognize the music industry for what it is: a business. There has always been a throwaway product aimed solely at the teenage market. Ignore this. Keep your head down and concentrate on what makes you great.
