Brought up in the 60s - which had largely rejected the sugary offerings of the 50s - music was exciting. There was so much innovation and originality.
This lasted into the 70s but was certainly fading by the time that the 80s commenced.
I still listen avidly to all sorts of modern artists and, through my incessant sense of disappointment, two things strike me:
1) The dull sameness of all the music and
2) Attempts at originality are generally extreme and wearisome.
I must confess to quite liking Mumford and Sons. They are indeed a bit different to the rest of all the tedium-makers.
