also albums nowadays are recorded / compressed mostly to sound "good" on smartphones or the shitty beats-headphones.

Depends what music you listen to. A lot of albums I buy are 4-6 tracks and can still clear an hour easily.

I think I buy EPs on pay what you want. Usually recorded by people doing it as a hobby or working other jobs between tours to supplement their income. Creativity in the scenes I dig is the best it's been for a very long time.

Albums don't make money for the artists and haven't got a long time. So artists are either bound by the studio cycle and so produce minimum albums as often as they can for money. Or they are not part of that and they therefore release music in whatever chunks they feel. This often means EPs and singles because that's the chunk of good music they've written. Rather than churning out filler or making you wait years while they piece together work in between their lives.

Art is not dead. it's just vacated mainstream music and quite a lot of the big names in most genres that aren't chart pop as well.

more so than ever before you don't need chart success or mass appeal to be successful as an artist, people are into all sorts of shit because of the internet and the fact that almost everything is permitted if you just live your life, contrary to what neckbeards who are terrified of doing that will tell you, a lot of """normies""" are offensively weird while the people who call them normies are the ones who walk around wearing nondescript clothes, never expressing themselves, never leaving their tiny little bubble, just bitching all day on Canadian wrestling websites about how art is dead

Time filters out the trash, there was MORE garbage back then and less of an opportunity to be exposed to alternative music, chances are wrong generation types wouldn't know about 75% of the superior bands that prove music was just better back then if they had been born when they were "popular"

we were born in the RIGHT generation

Yeah I get you.

I think the age of the internet currently means that for music, if you REALLY care it's better than ever. It's all there for us to just reach out and grab. It sucks if you just want to passively consume because the quality has declined but then people can only invest time and attention in so many things to any degree of depth and if you want to passively consume a thing you chose something else.

I mean sure, but to a lesser extent even passive consumption is the same way, the lewronggeneration types exist because that music is STILL very popular

So can CD's take that much time?

From my point of view songs are longer since the internet, does anyone agree?

you're probably listening to music that isn't artful or something

what happened to the days when a full-length album was a 10-inch vinyl disc with 2-4 songs per side?

Art has been dead

albums were only that long for value reasons, more focused albums are better with the filler removed

I just checked the last two albums I downloaded and it's 19 songs and 16 so shut up.
