Nope it's not just you! i also think the same...personaly i'v always thought it something to do with getting old!...seriously tho,hardly any music bands/artists are gonna be reknown,for there great tunes etc 50 years from now,than what there was through the 60's,70's and 80's.Today it seems anyone will do anything to get famous,and sing a crappy song to get rich and then get on tv! so yeah the old music will always be true music,until things 'maybe' change!???

mmm i guess it kind of depends on the artist. there are certain bands that i think have better new albums than old ones like the used, taking back sunday and sum 41. but there are other artists that i like their older stuff much better like green day and incubus.

it's probably cuz they work so hard on the first albums to make themselves known and they feel they have something to prove and afterwards when that has been established they don't always try as hard or something of that nature....but it does depend on the band..

There was a time when musicians created and expressed themselves in their music and it became popular on its own merit. Today it seems to me that the music industry and media ram the new stuff down the throats of the youth of the world and convince them that to be popular thay MUST like it.The American & UK pop Idol series is proof of that. No more does a band or artist have to work their way from obscurity to fame. They just need a hook be it exposing the majority of their flesh,exploiting the harshness of inner city impoverished life or appealing to those that feel they do not fit into the mainstream of society.Just SOME of the new music I find quite good, variety is a wonderous thing, but crap is crap,and theres more of it about today...

I tend toward classic rock and the likes of black metal. I enjoy Classical from Mozart and Bach etc.I dont care for the hip hop stuff and the whole Britney and her clone things. I fackin hate rap. Rap is not music! so you could say i hate most modern sh!t!?
I guess you could say that I believe music was better years ago. Look at the longevity of artist's like ,Maiden, The Stones, Aerosmith, The Eagles, Styx, their stuff is timeless,and the era of Hendrix, The Doors, Led Zepplin...will live forever!!! 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....

Original/old shit for me.
MOSTLY.
I think bands' first albums relaly show how much effort they've put into it.
The second, third, etc album may not have all of that effort.
Because "it's just a second or third" or "we've got our first one in the gold" so it may not mean as much to them.
Maybe?

Maybe not.

I can see how people could think that the band's older stuff is better because they worked harder on it, but I don't think that is always the case. One thing that hasn't been brought up is that most people start listening to bands on their first few CDs, and like the early sound because its what they are familar with. When a band developes more, people may or may not like it because its not the exact same sound that they are familar with and have grown to love. Some think it is better, some think it is worse. I know for me, there are a couple CDs that I have that I wished the band would sound like that for several CDs, but I know that is highly unrealistic. Change is just something you come to expect.

When you are in a band, you realize how boring it can get playing the same EXACT style over and over again. You want to branch out, get more technical, add more instruments.

A CD is just a snap shot in time of an artist. Its about the particular things the band was dealing with. Since people change, their music changes as well. For better or for worse.
