Piracy and streaming have ruined music

    People wonder why the 2010s was such a bad decade for music, it's because of the spread of piracy.

    There used to be a time when an artist had to go through so many hoops to make and release an album, so they put do much effort into the production.
    Now anyone can easily make an album in their home and release it instantly.
    This creates a culture of music consumption where people will experience music in a simialr way to how they consume jpgs and youtube videos, they'll listen to an album or some songs then move on to the next thing, they no longer develop an attachment to the music and albums, this mentally of instant gratification has diluted the art and spirit of music.
    It used to be you had to go to a record store or order an album through a catalog, now days piracy and streaming has opened the floodgates to casuals like krotz that have a superficial appreciation of music, actual lovers of albums and music are dwindling and now the focus is on satisfying the masses with temporary entertainment.

    The way you can combat this is to avoid piracy and buy the albums of the bands you listen to.
    If enough people start doing this they'll be more inclined to put more effort into their production.
    Compare something on a real label to a net label or bandcamp musician, you can hear the difference.

    It's sad.
    It's basically the state of radio only worse.
    People listening to a song on soundcloud or YouTube, move on to the next new thing, the artists catering to this type of consumption.
    In a couple decades you're going to see adults who never owned an album physically, maybe they've never even listened to a full album,

    The record labels ruined music by taking over the artists ability to create, and make it all about fulfilling contracts and using formulas to create music that would most likely sell to the masses based on previous successes. In short they got the producers and A&R men to turn artists into glorified karaoke singers.

    That's a problem that affects pop music.
    Most record labels respect the artists or are run by the musicians themselves.

    Music made by hobbyists vs music made for a living.
    If soundcloud bedroom music is your thing fine, but I prefer to hear albums made by people who invest their lives into the music.

    Music is art, not a commodity.

    There being a commercial side to obtaining and owning artwork isn't the same as art 'being' a commodity. Its like saying a home is not a commodity, the house itself is a commodity, but the home you make inside the house is something different.

    You'll find more heart in music made for a living or to share physically than most freebie shit.
    Go look up net labels or independent stuff on bandcamp, it's cheap and soulless acme shit.
    I used to go to some Japanese net labels (they seem to be defunct now) like Bunkai Kei and Maletine Records, the best majority was cheap shit with only a few albums that really stood out.
    The best albums I have listened to were from bands and musicians that made music for physical release.

    Piracy and streaming reduces music to a form of disposable entertainment.
    Back when you had to buy an album you cherished what you had more, now days people share and listen to albums like they do youtube links or meme images.
    I stopped pirating recently because I wish to return to how I used to experience music,back in the early to mid 2010s I was a huge piratefag with over a hundred thousand songs, constantly listening to something new and only returning to my absolute favs, what I found was the special feeling of having an album was gone and my overall appreciation for the music was weaning.
    Think of it like this, imagine it's 1999 and someone hands you a vhs they recorded of various music videos, you would cherish that tape and develop a special emotional attachment to those videos, in 2020 a teen with unlimited access to videos via youtube would not be able to experience that.
    Less is more and scarcity makes things more special.

    Music died when the flannel suits in the recording industry killed it in the late 70's.
