- Paul Gauguin
A vast majority of people who say music nowadays is bad, are making that judgement based on whatever is playing on the radio. However, there is much more than the top 50 on iTunes. To be able to make a fair assessment of modern music, one must dig deep and make an effort to find the smaller, less popular musicians and bands that are truly talented, innovative, creative, and are beating a path for the music of tomorrow. I strongly believe that the best music of today is hidden under the blinding lights of the mainstream. Now, I'm not trying to say that all mainstream music is bad, because it is not. Some of my favorite music is popular, however I truly believe that to find the best of todays music, one must explore.
