Devaluation of Music?

In the above article, the writer showed some logical points about the devaluation of music. Even I couldn't realise it if I didn't know these facts.

As much as platforms like Spotify and iTunes have been instrumental in giving music a much wider audience than before, they have also contributed in giving modern music a lack of organic feel. Nowadays, at least in my estimation, people don't put too much attention to the artist themselves and that's a shame.

People can easily download songs from the internet for free. This is a big issue for all music industry, for sure and i agree that lawmakers and the inustry have a lot of things to work on. It's not that music industry is dying but many singers nowadays are not only relying to the income they're getting from music downloads anymore but from the concerts and other side rackets along with it.

Agree and guilty. I prefer the kind of music before than today. It's true, music today lacks organic feel. Though some songs are still great, but songs before are way better.

Music is a fungible commodity. On the industry side, any singer will do and the beats and background noises are all from the same folder on the server.  On the consumer side, music now is, as Queen sung so long ago. Youtube!!! the main source of income. Singers make youtube channel, publish their songs...listeners now don't go for buying a CD rather they search in youtube or download. That's the main fact...

mainstream music is the key to all of this, we better call them celebs rather than artists.

Absolutely! Even celebrities who are not really a singer can sell their albums and can gain a sky rocket high profit.

Another thing that is slowly killing the industry is piracy.. I'm not going to lie, I have done this lots of times in my lifetime because I find it convenient. But yeah, we really need to support our local musicians to ensure that they get to do what they are good at.
