State of Music today

All packaging and little substance....I watched a movie that was based on the music biz in the 60-70's the other night, and the record company told this singer "we already have someone like you on our roster, you need to be different and find your own style"...hahaha, can you believe that? These days, if you DONT sound like the last big hit, they don't want you, they're so shallow they wouldn't know how to market something different. Music is so homogenized today...used to be all about the song and the performance and the lyrics and the feel - when have you heard that lately. There's some good music and some fun music out there today, but by a whole different set of standards...(my 2 cents).
