Re: All the best music was written before 1988 anyway
There is good music, but it wont be anything that is "successful"
The missus describes it as the Sony Effect, where any artists creativity and quality went to shit as soon as they are signed up by a major label.
I get my music from bandcamp -unrestricted download in a range of formats, streaming for those weirdos who think thats a valid solution, 80% of money paid going directly to artist, and access to a huge assortment of styles and genres. Only drawback is not much of a 'back catalogue' or older music.
