I've been finding it increasingly difficult to come upon quality music lately. Recent records from older artists I like don't seem to live up to the oldies, and although I'd like to believe my musical tastes are fairly broad, I have a real hard time finding new artists as good as their counterparts from the 1980s and 1990s. With some artists comparing newer music to fast food, and eMusic—a song download service that hosts primarily indie bands—sitting pretty at the number two spot behind iTunes, I get the feeling I'm not the only one.
Am I and others just getting jaded, or is there a real decline in the quality of recent music? If the latter is true, are indie bands that can now make themselves known through MySpace, eMusic, and other services poised to save the day?
