Please, tell me this isn't what we've come to!

The artists are gifted and I would listen to them if... their songs weren't...

K-Pop is still subjectively good depending on who you ask. I also enjoy j-pop. Western pop can be 50/50, depending on the season imho. There's a lot of garbage but there's some catchy garbage and among that garbage, there's gems.

I think it has turned to crap since now record companies have to scramble to put out singles that are going to sell in order to make money via downloads off iTunes and such since not a lot of people choose to buy whole albums now. singles aren't even really supposed to be high brow anyway. Typically, a single is going to be formulaic with a run time of 3 to 4 minutes, a catch chorus and/or beat, and a subject matter that anybody can understand or just put it on and not think at all. Now, music companies focus on artists that they can bank off of and not the ones really trying to create art and push the envelope. It is no longer cool to be different in the music industry because alternative acts don't really make money, at least not as much as the executives want. To have better pop music, the listeners need to demand it. They need to find a way to show support for artists pushing the boundaries and being different instead of passively supporting artists who reuse clichés to find success.
