Rick Beato is fighting a losing battle here. Albeit I support his fight wholeheartedly. Sadly, Rick never saw the Soviet movie Kin-Dza-Dza which foresaw a complete degeneration of culture and arts. This was 20 years before Mike Judge's genius portrayal of Western society in his Idiocracy. Here is how the future "art", namely super hi-end music sounded in Kinz-Dza-Dza. The song is a primitive urban folklore of early 20th century, aggravated deliberately in Kin-Dza-Dza by horrendously amateur fiddle and brutal vocalizing (read about the movie) and visit YouTube to see this clip.
How did we get here? Simple, profit and cutting costs. Two primitive notes are easier to produce than 100 talented ones--just bottom line. It was already confirmed by Spanish researches that modern pop-music is devolving primarily in noise. Now people are trying to raise their voices on that. Let's start from the start--for mob, talent is not an issue, that is why most modern-day large pop-stars are talentless hacks. Real music survives elsewhere, not on the streets of modern West. It used to be different. Do you remember, then this was pop-music. It was music, and a great one at that, first, pop-second. And it touched billions and still does.
