The Quality of Music Has Decreased Over Time


        The quality of music reigning in the top charts has decreased over time. Music technology, the lack of musical literacy, and lack of diversity in lyrics have all led to this demise. This paper aims to expose the falling progression of modern music. 


            With the increase of musical literacy and medley of lyrics and the decreased reliance on music technology, the quality of music itself and the music industry will improve. By searching through music industry professionals’ websites, problems with modern music were uncovered. My analysis showed the lack of originality has greatly hindered the continuation of music appreciation. The only way back from the big gray canvas is the encouragement of music literacy, exploring creativity, and leaving Autotune behind.
