Default Does Today's Music Have the Same Kind of Soul?

Well? I mean does todays have the same kind of soul as older music in terms of mainstream bands? Older as in any time before the 1990's. Well maybe not so far as the 50's, unless that is you're opinion. And what would you say is the greatest time period for music?

Mainstream rock and rap aren't quite as full of soul as they used to be.

Ambient is evolving nicely. Stoner rock is doing well. Modern jazz is reaching new creative heights.

I think the biggest problem was that in the 50s and mostly the 60's, the music with "soul" also made the charts, nowadays, only pop princesses and bling bling makes it, and the other music is pushed underground

I so agree with you. I find popular music so shallow. That's why the best music is underground .

I do believe there are a few exceptions. I really like Coldplay, U2, and Muse. Kanye West and DMX are ok for the rap side. I have yet to hear popular Techno, Electronica, Dance, or synthetic music in general that I like. Got to go underground for that. I just hate DJ Kammy. Being someone who makes Synthetic music, DJ Kammy is so mediocre, and the beats are very simple. Any one with some virtual studio knowledge can make it really.

As for older music. I really like Pink Floyd, The Beatles, some Talking Heads, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Johnny Cash, all I can think of right now.

yeah that's kinda weird but soul got pushed underground......there are quite a few soul artists that still come out today but get little to no recognition. The only thing I thank Amy Winehouse for is shedding some light on the soul underground other than that, she's a talentless hack just barely winging it. Have you heard that broad live?.....geez
