thats a good point. i remember back when i had cd's id listen to the same cd over and over and study it and if the artist couldnt keep an audiences attention they wouldnt thrive in the industry. to most music is an after thought. just background noise while you scroll through your facebook or instagram chasing that next dopamine hit. no one bothers to sit an listen anymore so the artists dont need to sit there and write something really worth listening to.

Lazier not dumber perhaps? Easier to create another whiney RnB or pulp pop tune. I use my fingers to change stations or my playlist. I would also suggest that peoples "facebook" instant gratification impulse doesn't allow them the time it takes to actually listen or appreciate art or music.


What's wrong with RnB?



Here's the truth: people don't like others that are different than them. That's all there is to it. Duality stems from disliking others that have different views.

Entertainment is used to distract you.

Classical order is a style of music based on keys, intervals, modes etc. The music ultimately tells a story, like an epic.

Thats your subjective preference. I noticed you left out the 'beat'. I prefer a beat. I'm also visually oriented. I want to put my classical music to something. It has to carry me somewhere, engage me, tell me a story.

Most orchestra classics written back when were developed by the Masters for Theatre Plays and Opera. I prefer the modern alternative, so much more "sophisticated" than romping round a stage in tights. In fact, pure Cinematic genius. Until you do as well, you should hold your tongue.

sophisticated
səˈfɪstɪkeɪtɪd/Submit adjective 1. having, revealing, or involving a great deal of worldly experience and knowledge of fashion and culture.


Carefully read what sophisticated actually means


Yeah, classical music is epic. Other music not so much.

I still think classical order music is sophisticated.


And yet you wrote this thread? Sounds like you change rose coloured glasses too quickly

"Does Communism make people more disciplined?"
www.abovetopsecret.com...


Western countries have more freedom of expression but less discipline....

More individuality = less discipline
Less individuality = more discipline?


I really have to question your sincerity...


Also I'm willing to bet you don't know how to play music. You probably only listen to it. If you can't play music then you don't have authority over understanding it.

Communism somewhat implies structure and sharing equally with everyone. Nobody has the answers to everything so sometimes it's necessary to have instructors to guide you.

That's what school does. Your teachers teach you how to be well rounded in many subjects.

Classical order is sophisticated while other music is just relying on sound effects, computer editing software etc.


"Sound effects"..what do you think of the piano tines produce echoing in a grand piano? Sound effects could also be considered an orchestra playing in a music bowl.

You really should not be so combative to others listening tastes. Speaking of computer effects - you do realize that all modern music is recorded with Digital Processing? How far down do you want to fall?


There's nothing wrong with using sound effects to augment the musician's sound but some rely entirely on smokes 'n mirrors for their music.

Go ahead, listen to your heavy metal musicians without distortions, delays, etc. Their power chords and palm-muting no longer sounds that interesting does it?

Dont go - where else can you post a 10 min video of a Chinese army marching and solve moral dilemmas about Communism?


So what do you think? More individuality = less discipline
Less individuality = more discipline

Stay - it's fun

Then it would not be heavy metal. You do not like it so you do not understand it..I'm an audiophile and find something I like in pretty much everything..country is a tough one for me though.

In the context that you decried anything non-classical as being "simple" I really think you are deliberately going out of your way to pretend you dont know what I am saying.

Here is a song by the originator of Death Metal..subjective but pretty close either way, it's been done with an orchestral arrangement
