Also, check the user Tyler Knight... he just posted a link to his album here on the site a couple days ago.


I linked to his stuff on the previous page as well
Hopefully all ATS gets to listen to his stuff. Tyler seriously deserves some more attention and is a true MAN OF HIS CRAFT!

To keep the wubdub going, I'm liking Shock One!

Let me make a valid example of how good dubstep can be.



That song is clearly and plainly beautiful. And I believe the direction electronic music is moving. More real instruments that has the emotion behind it, no words, but you can feel it.

It's cool. This thread is getting to me lol. I think no matter what the genre, people could find at least one song/artist they like. Just because somebody doesn't particularly like what they hear, doesn't mean its less musical or any less talented. It's like religion. Some people believe this, some people believe that, just let them get on with it and don't put down something that isn't really 'Your Taste'.

After reading through a bunch of these posts, it's great to see the different range of musical genres that people say is "real" music. I have to make one point though. Anything that has a tone or variation of sound can be considered music, it's just that most of it is absolutely terrible and a waste of time to listen to


I listen to a broad range of stuff from folk, to hip hop and everything in between, but I still have my opinion that if you don't put your entire self into the music you create, then you are not doing it for the right reasons!

Here is a link to my album that I have just finished ( thank you to Qumulys and ImpyreX for plugging it earlier in the thread! )

tylerknight.bandcamp.com...

I play acoustic guitar and am a singer/songwriter and try to write songs about topics that I am passionate about and that speak a message, not what is popular.

Oddly enough, I also make dance music and hip hop songs which I will post below! I have to say that Dubstep is the worst thing to happen to music since Nickelback and is painfully awful on the ears. Just a personal opinion!

soundcloud.com...
(I am the second verse)

soundcloud.com...
(A dance beat I produced)

soundcloud.com...
(sort of dance hip hop beat I produced)

Either way take the time to listen if you want, but not all music is bad nowadays ( just most of it ) the stuff that is out in front and making millions of dollars is the music that brainwashes you and puts your brain to sleep! Real music sends a message and makes you think, question, and want to try it yourself.

All the best to everyone and their own musical styles and likes. Just because I don't like it, doesn't mean everyone does. I just really hate dubstep!

Well, the problem is we are using the word "Talent" and that is a very subjective thing. I hear singers all the time who a lauded as wonderful and I just can't stand them. I'm sure others experience the same thing in different ways. In many ways what you perceive as talent has a lot to do with your level of "education". I have sung for years (classically), study at the college level and know my theory. I tend to be a lot picker than the average person so I have to temper my judgement a little because I can come off as an elitist jerk.


To be honest with you, I don't wish to get that "education" you talk about if it closes my mind to music and only allows me to appreciate music within the confine's that education impressed on me.......

I have a very open mind when it come's to music...I think it is a truly amazing and wonderful thing in all it's many form's...I care less about technical styles studied....and more about human expression.

Well put ! Music is what you take from it. You can be a horrible singer, but if someone in that crowd leaves happy and loving what you have just expressed, then you have done your job. If you go up and sing horribly and have no passion for it then you are wasting your time.

But you have been educated. You have done it in your own way, that's where you are getting confused. We all come to our taste in our own ways and we become "educated" in them. I judge singing (and music in general) from my experiences with it and you do the same. Your experiences are not the same as mine and therefore your opinions will be different, but it was an education none the less.

It does not "close" the mind. It refines it.




.I care less about technical styles studied


You mean skills not styles. And that is where we can not agree. The novice can make art, but they cannot make a masterpiece. Mastery requires patience and dedication to one's craft. There is nothing minor about technical skill.

There is still great music out there, you just have to look for it... while the recording industry is trying to sell you their prepackaged music with scientifically tested techniques known for you to get hooked to it, and if you haven't heard about their music, then their brainwashed customers will tell ya.

This whole thread made me LOL!! And inspired me to check out this Skrillex


I have to admit, I didn't believe this so called music could be nearly as bad as I was reading. LOL I was wrong, it was worse. HAH

And regarding singers who cannot sing,which brings me to my reason for posting....Courtney Love of Hole comes to mind. LIVE THRU THIS is a great CD and Courtney can't sing for beans!!! Yet, I still love it.

The music ended with rap. The good music was in the 50s and 60s after that there were some good music but it also passed . I would hate to be brought up today In the 60s we had great music and great cars and the girls were thin and no tattoos . You could do things without a lawyer sticking his nose into it .There were a hell of a lot less rules to deal with and people were different . I had the Beach Boys , Beatles , Animals, Elvis, Platters ,the best of the very best music , cars and Jobs .Now it's all gone !

Terrible voice, awesome power and feeling behind it though you are so right! I love HOLE such a great band and couldn't picture any other voice but Courtney's.

Another example is Neil Young. He is one of the best songwriters of all time, and has a voice that some people would say is terrible, but it is where the voice came from that makes it so unique. He may not be on key on every single note, and may be shaky here and there, but that is HIS voice and his music would not be the amazingness that it is without it.

Pressing buttons on a computer to make bass dropping sounds does not require a lot of talent, but to some people it is the best of the best music out there ( which is unfortunate ) but music is just that, making people enjoy life one vibration at a time.

Music did not end with rap! Rap has been around a lot longer than you may think.



Even when rap first came out it was very positive and spread a great message! It slowly moved away from that to gangster rap and talking about girls, money, drugs, and fame, but the good hip hop is still there just isn't out in your face making the big bucks



Here is a perfect example of positive hip hop from one of my favorite hip hop artists Eligh featuring Zumbi from Zion I and Scarub of Living Legends.

The message is so good and uplifting and doesn't once mention any of the things that make rap what it is today.

and yes music is subjective that is what makes it the most powerful form of communication ever.
