Rick Beato has a video criticizing Todays music for being boring...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ks4c_A0Ach8
Though if you have looked into this article before, then that should explain why it appears like what the video explains, if you only focus on the songwriting aspect that is...

With the rise of EDM music in the late 2000s, todays music no longer focus on tonal function, and I think its one of the main reasons why driver gear shift key change even went out of fashion, since sonic function seemed to do the job for what chords can do nowadays, this article shown above is why music today sounded different from music dating to the 1950s-1990s, thought this should explain why music sounds different nowadays.

I bet Betao thinks food as a whole sucks now because McDonald's has a limited ingredient range when you refuse to consider that half of their ingredients exist.

Beato seems like a nice enough guy but boomers gonna boomer, also his fanbase is the WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORST. Sometimes I wonder if he's just pandering to his audience of angry crusty old white guys when he makes those kinds of videos. Why is it so hard for people to focus on what they like and stop whining about what other people listen to?

Btw that video is nearly a year old and other YouTubers have since responded to it, here's a good one.

Who's right & who’s wrong discussions about music are sometimes delusional. The idea there’s some kind of objective standard against which to judge a tune, album, symphony or whatever sadly fuels too much arrogance and too many arguments. OK, I can’t stand Dixieland or Punk for instance but all I’m saying is they give me the horrors. I’m happy if they make somebody else happy. Just don’t expect me to stay in the same room someone is playing the Sex Pistols full volume. OK, I’ll stick my head on the chopping block revealing the Salvation Army Band that stumbles into the final movement of Beethoven’s 9 Th. gives me the shi*s all I’m saying is I can’t stand it. If for some unfathomable reason (to me ) it takes someone else to heaven that’s OK.
On the other hand broad claims such as ‘Today’s music is so boring’ may have some validity given for instance the evils of autotune and the often absurd overindulgence in digital effects.

I can agree with some of your points. Sex Pistols aren't my thing either, but I get their appeal. I won't judge. In fact, if I'm a passenger in a car with someone who likes mumble rap, I won't say anything. They're driving. By law, they have control of the stereo system.

I don't think today's music is boring. I find there is a lot of sifting that needs to be done. People turn me on to new bands that offer fresh spins on the types of music I like. A good example of this is the 80s rock revival happening in Sweden and Finland.
