What the hell ever happened to GREAT music?

As a fan of the Melodicrock.com Noticeboard, I am occasionally-curious to see what people post. Regardless of my personal assessments, I totally respect the opinions of others and their varied tastes regarding "what's good and what isn't". I am simply "among all of you" as another music fan and critic.


But man oh man, when hearing a lot of so-called New Releases, I rarely find myself using the phrase "chuffed to bits", anymore. (I am an American who steals cool off-shore phrases)

The latest GREAT CD's that I heard and purchased are Harem Scarem's brilliant "United" and Warrant's "Louder-Harder-Faster", which runs a close SECOND! Also, among my 2017 purchases are 1) Three Lions s/t, 2) C.O.P. "State Of Rock" 3) Naked "End Game" 4) Bernie Charavelle "Make Some Sense Of This" (Bernie is the guitarist for the legendary Michael MacDonald.....and released a brilliant 10-track soft-rock CD)

Admittedly, I spend a LOT of time listening mostly to "Rock-Melodic Radio" online which plays a great mix of new and classic Melodic Rock.

But WHAT is it with these bands who release new songs or albums that are utter shite? Do they not "get it?" Do they think of it as new artistic-brilliancy?" Have artists lost sight (and hearing) of what GREAT-sounding music IS, anymore? Probably the BEST reviews that I've read so far are in regard to the latest Styx CD, which I have yet to hear in it's entirely.

I do not have much more to add to this post. I may take some heat for it, but I don't care. It's just another thread, BUT amongst a community of GOOD people/music-fans whose opinions I do respect, regardless of whether or not they differ from mine. (as repeated from above)
