OK, how about "it's changed too much and us old fans don't like it!"? The same could be said about Think Tank.
Fair enough!

Musically, I'm the school outcast. With a few exceptions, no one knows any of the music I listen to, and I don't care about the music they listen to.

I went through that "le wrong generation" shit. Then I got tired of Roger Waters whining about his dad.

Another problem for me is that hip hop is too serious now. We don't get any fun songs like Humpty Dance, Just A Friend or My Name Is anymore. Thankfully I recently discovered Professor Elemental, who is a blend of silliness and old school.

That's kind of my issue with hip-hop too. Rappers always seem pissed off! That's why Iike Gorillaz and from the Old School people like De La Soul and The Beastie Boys.

I detest Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar....My favorite modern Hip Hop artists are Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Ceelo Green and Danger Mouse... I did love the late 70s-80s and most of the 90s era, but I cannot tolerate most of what is considered "mainstream"......

how can you say you love 80 and 90's hip hop era but "detest" kendrick lamar? king kunta from his new album is probably the best hip hop song i've heard in a very long time.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRK7PVJFbS8" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

not liking something because it's mainstream is beyond my comprehension

Major cycles seem to last around seven years, e.g. 1955 rock n roll, 1962 The Beatles (& other beat groups), 1969 Heavy Rock, 1976 New Wave, 1983 electronic music, 1990 indie/rave, 1997 indie absorbed into the mainstream etc....

I agree with this from the technology point of view (I was considering the creative angle :) ).

From the business angle, the CD encouraged the industry to re-issue its back catalogues, and some (myself included) think that this caused a dearth of good new music in the late 80s.

^This. It seems the controversial release methods for, say, In Rainbows, The Future is Medieval and Songs of Innocence are all more talked about than the music itself. In Rainbows is the exception of course but some people still marry it with the pay-what-you-want scheme. Likewise, Beyonce just dropping her album online without promotion or Ash's confusing A-Z series also more or less fall under this umbrella. This goes without mentioning downloading, streaming, pre-release oddities and what not on the whole (the comments about it all feeling a bit lonelier here now, only 16 days after The Magic Whip being released in the UK, is a fair enough example.)

I just feel that Kendrick Lamar isn't original.... Just copying from the earlier periods..... When I mean mainstream.... I just tend classify "mainstream" as being rather synthetic sounding....rather generic..... but again we're all obviously entitled to our own taste/opinion(s).....

Does the release of a new single/album have the same impact now, since it moved from being a physical object purchased from a shop?

It's hard to say I think. People are always going to be excited about new music, and today with those examples they've been done in exciting ways, whereas people like myself would prefer the standard method (yeah, I'm young but being raised on CDs means I love actually going out to a shop and buying one, and as such I've never downloaded an album in my life). It's not like this with other entertainment industries obviously (and obviously, to some extent it can't be).

With a download, it is stored anonymously in a folder on a computer. And you forget that you've bought it :o

Whereas the physical object sits proudly on your shelf, and is identifiable.... :geek:
