Well lets face it people...musicianship has become a lost art. Many guitarists in bands today would have trouble telling you the difference between a pentatonic and mixolydian scale!!!
As the years pass us by, these great artists we look up to so dearly...will be with us no more and will be replaced by band's in the likes of 'Linkin Park'
'Green Day' 'Sum41' and...GAAAH! why do i bother...maybe there is no future!? nah...there is really...somewhere!

i can see the future...holy sh!t...its a ferret!!!!

^I wouldnt agree with that... Its just that Linkin Park, Sum 41 and Green Day and all that are more popular now. There's still really good quality music out there you just gotta look out for it.

And as for the older vs newer thang... I dont know, it depends. Youd expect a band to get better over the years, seeing as theyve had more time to work together and can only get better. Normally for me, yeah, I prefer the older stuff.. Mebbe things get corrupted through business and crap...

Prefering olderstuff is hipster cliche, even though it's well founded most the time.... It's true there's a shortage of quality musicians out there, but just look at all the undiscover indie bands, In 30 years no one will remember Good Charollette or Linkin park, but they probably will remeber Modest mouse and Radiohead.

^Aye, yer right Radiohead are very good, i wont complain about that... but out of a very small percentage of music like that other will fall into room 101 and be forgotten forever

I guess you could say that I believe music was better years ago.
How many of todays music stars will prove to be marketable in 20 years? Only time will tell.
Most producers have ran out of ideas.
Rock is just re runs of old sounds, hip hop is progressing into a sad pop scene and the pop scene itself is a joke to music....
A particular band does not need to stand the 'test of time' in terms of their magnitude of popularity to be considered 'good' musicians. Marketability is rather irrelevant, at least if we are appreciating music here (not doing an economic profit analysis).

Judging an entire sector of music based on heavy rotation radio songs is foolish. Most commerical rap seems uninspired, but to draw the trigger so quickly on it without listening to more apt artists is not something an advocate for originality and music appreciation would do. It's easy to disdain the current music movement, but it's even easier to not fully grasp the movement by only considering popular acts.
