    Has pop music lost its fun?

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/music/articles...6-953e8a083334


    ...concluded that pop has become melodically less complex, using fewer chord changes, and that pop recordings are mastered to sound consistently louder (and therefore less dynamic) at a rate of around one decibel every eight years.

    If you listen with classic media (BBC really?) you might be right. This isn't the roaring 90 anymore. There's bandcamp, soundcloud and what have. Lock down your aerial and start to listen
