    I wonder, if Thoughty2' video was based on a certain paper, why didn't you debunk the paper instead? Your not liking "Aaron" contaminates the meaning of your analysis.

    C'mon, just listen to modern music. As a driver I listen to the radio for about 3 hours a day. Everything he said makes totally sense to me. Only a fool would disagree that music today is better then music from yester year, which was the whole point he was trying to get across

    I like that Thoughty2's video because it's provocative. Really, when i saw it I knew that there're tons of music and new music created more and more that are not the 'pop' but very interesting and complex. The main question (as for me) is how someone newbie could reach those 'not mainstream genres' especially inside a society of people with bad or no taste of music? For example in my city majority of radio-stations play the same two hundreds songs (in its particular genre) for at least twenty years, and other radio play the same hundred songs "popular" "this year". I had to make a lot efforts to realize and discover musics that are really of my taste. And no one around me listens to such stuff and even knows those artists. And yet that moment I discovered the absence of boundaries between music genres (in space and time as well) -- everything is within continuous spectrum between pure harmony and white noise.
    So I'm agree with you: truth (about musics evolution and state-of-the-art) is on your side, but the discussion should be (permanent). And Thoughty2 has brought this discussion to million people (I hope) and maybe even brought me to your channel!-)

    I mean you easily make the case for songs that make it top 100, they simply follow a trend ( as in 2019 is electronic base line) like Dup Liba electricity and thank you next by Ariana Grande. So his point is not 100 percent wrong but he brings such a shitty argument to the table. Our music is more and more influenced by mass marketing and general public rather than actual fair show of talent. There are plenty of kids who never get a platform to shine but Shawn Mendes gets to have his new album dedicated to another girl ( or ex). Good music must make people feel and current top chart just makes me feel like a chimpanzee and want to take my headphones off to stop the bleeding

    POP music has always been pretty awful, but is constantly getting worse, i.e. repetitive, simplistic, and void of creativity. P.S. Timbre (not timber) is the color or tone of the sound, which you obviously didn't know as you listen to POP music.

    One little interesting detail, most good musicians and producers when asked will say that yes, music quality and complexity has declined, while most people claiming it isn't so are not musicians or are mediocre musicians, something to ponder, I ask the maker of this video, are you a musician or producer, and how good are you.
    I ask the same question to those in the comment section that are saying musichasn't declined.

      Alex Finale 22 дня назад +1

      Flutters, while you are right that art is subjective and tastes vary, it is possible to see difference in complexity in all types of art, not just music, and complexity is one of the markers that can be used to determine quality or sofistication in art, I can make a song with two chords that sounds cool, but when you listen to it next to Bohemian Rhapsody you will agree one is clearly better than the other, it doesn't matter that maybe some weirdo might preffer my two chord song.

    That's funny you make a lot of mistakes writing timbre (not timber) which has nothing to do with wood, (why the heck you don't stop showing images that nas nothing to do with music but wood ?!)
    On what is based your graph that compare the genres used by the algorithm to "all the types of genres" okay you show a Venn diagram but still, this is subjectif not a fact. I'd personnally not see as much genre that exists (not to confuse with subgenres). So yes timbre diversity can define the quality of a music, note that in the music world of analogue that you mention, it's very rare that an artist just use a sine wave, and the track of Aphex Twin you mention, you can really hear a lof of different timbre. And no harmonics doesn't remove the fundamental pitch, you should check how sound work, what's the fourrier tranform and other thesis are, and by the way harmonic is a synonym of overtone ... and if you mention guitar harmonics it's just that their fundamental have a much higher pitch, but there can't be harmonics/overtones without fundamental, that's a basic law to know in music.
    I stop there because your arguments about sampler and computer software (yes) are as stupid, so back to the basics first.

    I came back to this video for some reason..
    The maker of the video sounds and quite possibly is a dick.
    First of, he's talking about mainstream pop being dulled down, not music in general.. something that is factually proven by this point.
    the iPod launched digital music players into mainstream, until then it was still quite a niche branch.. so sure, there had been others but not to the overall success that the iPod had, and especially not to the point of making other mediums go extinct..
    Calling Napster, an illegal peer to peer download software program, a streaming service seems ridiculous to me. Or are you talking about Rhapsody repackaged into Napster..
    Again though, it was definitely not these fellows to take music streaming onto the main public.
    Rave culture in the 90's was not mainstream, was definitely not sophisticated and highly reliant on the heavy bass.
    Also, having to rant on about his pronunciation of the word 'timbre' seems unnecessary.
    I might agree it is hard to justify either side of this argument, I just though you put in a real weak effort to discredit one side of the debate.

    Of course musical quality is subjective. By definition, even. Subjective, adj: "based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions; existing in the mind". Quality is subjective and quantity is objective, so that's that. You want more? Music is just an arrangement of sounds without inherent goodness or badness; it is only when processed through the subjective biases of the human mind do we ascribe it those qualitative properties. If music were objective we could measure it using non-subjective tools, like a scale measuring weights. Instead what we have is a bunch of self-proclaimed objectivists who only use their subjective feelings, tastes, and opinions to cast judgment on music authoritatively and arrogantly. Shockingly, these objectivists never seem to agree on what is actually objectively good or bad. So you can yammer on until you're blue in the face about how influential Bach was, but at the end of the day that doesn't make him better. That's just you subjectively declaring that being influential matters to quality. To deny that music is subjective is to deny the very definition of the words involved in this pathetic excuse for a debate.

    What a horrible video. I came to watch to see the "other side" of Thoughty2's video, and what we get is a smart ass who has nothing but idiotic statements as a defense.
    LOUDNESS IS RUINING MUSIC. To defend this means you're an idiot. It's one thing to use it as part of a song, but to literally wrap its distortion from beginning to end is asinine. Even people who are "victims" (the youth) are aware too much loudness ruins music.
    This is Thoughty2's primary defense on "music is getting worse". And he's right. Science has also proven this to be right, because, and dare logic enter this debate, *when the music is drowned out by deliberate deep ranges, it's impossible to hear other sounds*.
    Don't take my word for it: go stand next to an airport as a jetliner is about to take off. The very decibels coming from an engine are so loud, it *literally* warps the sound around it because it impacts sound waves.
    The demo provided in his video *clearly* shows this to be true.
    Yet you dispute this because your knickers got twisted.
    There's only one reasonable defense you can offer against his video: you're deaf or have severe hearing problems.
    For that, you actually have my appreciation you're lucky to not have to experience the garbage being shoved though 192k poorly compressed mp3s being called "music".

  • Jay Williams

    Define 'getting worse'. If that means less complex then sure in some cases and not in others. If you mean how much the music appeals to the majority of people. Absolutely not.

  • BiggieTrismegistus
    BiggieTrismegistus Месяц назад +1

    The problem with Thoughty2's argument is trying to make it sound like pop music today is objectively bad when it's just different. If he had just said "here are some things that have changed over the years and they may account for why you don't like newer music much" he would have been much better off. His video would still make a number of questionable claims but I think there would at least be something valid there overall. Another thing people don't realize is there has always been crappy music but over time it gets forgotten and the good stuff is what still gets listened too. It's not like 60s were a decade where the top 10 was made up of nothing but The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, all the Motown acts, Bob Dylan, James Brown, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Byrds, Aretha Franklin and all the other classic acts that are held in such high esteem. There was a lot of junk that feel off the charts and was largely ignored thereafter. I also think you undersold how much the Loudness War effects how things sound today, especially for people who didn't grow up listening to music that's so compressed. To my ears, rock music today is just too damned LOUD. All the songs end up sounding like an unpleasant blast of white noise.

    Funny. The music in and of itself isn't really dying. There are still composers creating classical pieces, there are still great hard rock, rock and roll, blues, country and the like artists at work (I know of lots of examples here in Spain alone). And that's talking about both the genres I like and the ones that people tend to associate with a huge nostalgia for mid-20th Century music.
    I'd argue that the cultural market is somewhat oversaturated and formulaic in many aspects, but comparing people like Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath, for example, to David Ghetta or Justin Bieber is biased and dangerous. True, publicity and marketing leans towards certain formulas that seem to reach a wider public, but comparison should be made among genres, in my opinion. Therefore, you could compare people like Johnny Cash and The White Buffalo, or Bob Dylan and Langhorne Slim... or Led Zeppelin and The Brew, or Greta Van Fleet. It's just a matter of research.
    I am a huge hard rock and blues fan, and I honestly dislike modern genres, but I wouldn't go ahead and say "music has gotten worse". It's just that the general public has leaned towards musical genres and styles that I personally don't align with. I'm not forced to listen to it, and I don't believe by any stretch of the imagination that the musical landscape is as narrow as this guy tries to imply. Just like blues in its time, or rock and roll after that, many musical genres that so called "purists" lean towards have simply gone a bit more underground, and require a little bit more of dedication to be found. In the end, it's not about the artists: it's about the public. Musical industry relies on statistics and data to decide what to promote and what to ignore, but it doesn't mean that artists are continuously ignoring or bashing on supposedly better genres. It just means that a big chunk of the public is lazy and doesn't explore the musical landscape, instead relying on what is given to them on a daily basis (on the radio, movies, etc.), therefore leading to a formulaic industry that churns a sort-of factory-produced music.
    This, again, doesn't imply that the mainstream music is worse. It's just different. Mind you, when rock and roll came out and became the musical mainstream, many "purists" bashed on it and considered it worse compared to jazz, country or even blues. We have to keep in mind, though, that even today, that doesn't mean that country, jazz or blues have died. The rise of pop, techno, reggaeton and stuff like that doesn't imply that former genres are destined to die out, it just implies that the public grows narrower for them and they are a bit harder to come by.

    A lot of what the original presentation, with all the little mistakes makes actually a lot of sense and is ground for an educated discussion and debate. I don't agree with everything of it, of course, but a lot of what was described is actually making sense. Your counter argumentation ... well ... I would say : start being less childish, it wouldn't hurt. And you lost me on loudness : yes loudness war and over limiting is destructive to the sound, creates harmonic distortion and kills 3 dimensional sound. The quality of many of the recording tools didn't improve at all since the 60's. Yes digital limiting helps making a track "louder" but don't you ever think it is not detrimental to the quality of the final product ... I could go on and on, but your timber ... I mean ... huh ... your tone is too annoying, I cannot finish the vid ... son ;)

      +dooder what's your point? All I'm trying to say is that you can claim that the Beatles or whatever pop act from the late 20th century is better than a pop act from the 21st century because they have more "timbral diversity" or more complex harmony, but there are other styles which must be, by the same logic, better than the Beatles because they are more diverse in timbre, or have more complex harmony.
      But of course that isn't true either because you can't make quantitative judgements like that about the quality of music.

      +Zach W. I call bullshit. Every time a new wave of music really took music by storm is when the timbral diversity was changed.

It's really kind of stupid to compare a string quartet or an orchestra to pop music because the melodies and intents for each genre are completely different.

    I largely agree and love this very informative vid. I watched the Thoughty2 video and didn't think much of it but wasn't entirely paying attention either. On reflection, you take down all the nonsense very well. However, I still think the study is pretty good. It only looks to see whether there are aggregate level trends in music that can be identified through a fairly rough approach. It certainly doesn't capture the nuances you mention, I just think it shouldn't be expected to. As for loudness, the loudness wars did see compression overused to people's attention but there was also the natural increase in volume from better compression. Just a caveat to your point. But otherwise I do agree. You can't criticise oranges for not tasting like nor having the texture of apples.

    Comparing zeppelin to gaga is one of the worst comparisons I’ve ever heard. Gaga writes original music instead of stealing her ideas from blues and jazz musicians

    Why are you hating on this Thoughtly dude so much? He has way more views to you, so your general attitude toward him makes you sound jealous and takes away from the point you're trying to make. Also, some of the things that you gave him shit for were misleading. The fact that two people wrote a tenth of today's popular is impressive, that's a huge percent written by just two people. And also, why give him shit for the Ipod thing? No one really knew about mp3s before the Ipod, so I'm not sure what point you're trying to make by calling out such a small detail seeing how it doesn't really have anything to do with the point he was trying to make. You can call out his inaccuracies without sounding super insecure. And people really don't give much thought into what their listening to unless they have a passion for music or are musicians themselves. I totally agree with most of what you said, but it would have been 5 times better without all the snarkiness.

      +Tantacrul I don't know anything about the other guy. I'm sure you're right though, he seems to rely heavily on sensationalism to get views. I honestly just found the feel of the video a little off-putting. I like your channel though. Subscribed and all that. Just as someone who had no premise for either of your guys' content, I didn't understand the hate.

      Just a difference of taste in style I guess. I detest this guy because his content is absurdly un-researched and wildly inaccurate. It's a disgrace how happy he is to trot out ideas that he barely takes the time to understand. Not to mention his choice of thumbnails are highly misogynistic, so... he's a valid target in my view and deserving of ridicule. That said, this is not a type of video I'll be doing often. It't not really something I want to get into - reaction videos and all that.

    honestly I just dislike how alot of pop music is being produced by a single person. causing alot of songs to sound similar despite it having different vocalists. (and no. I don't mean just those 2 dudes fourthytwo, I mean Thoughty2, said)

    That thoughty2 video shows that all you need is to say things that sound smart to an audience that doesn't understand what you are talking about and/or already have preconceived biases.
