I think that streaming services like Spotify are where the money in music is now, not downloads or CD's. I don't subscribe to any such service but I have heard them in stores and never heard anything  surprising or interesting.
 
I've heard Spotify played in public places too - I've rarely heard much that's either interesting or new either.  I guess I could if I created my own account and muddled around in there.

You can hear a great variety on Spotify, you just have to look for it. I'd rather hire a good DJ ({#Wave}Bill!) to sift the inbox for me and find the gems.

It's an interesting article - almost like a parody, but I agree with you.  As I've tried to point out in the song threads, there is a confirmation bias that many baby-boomers have about music made between 1967 and 1974 or so, being the highest musical achievement in human history.  What did musicians of the 1940s and their fans think of 1950s rock and roll and pop?  Probably not very much, and I imagine they thought much less of the music of the 1960s. and '70s and its "sonic qualities".  In other words, they probably thought it was mass-produced pablum.
  It's always a little suspect to me when someone claims to have a "scientific" method for studying aesthetic matters, often to arrive at a desired or preconceived result (e.g.:"Music as an art form is dying, it’s being replaced by music which is a disposable product, designed to sell but not to inspire".)  I strongly doubt that guy is even a musician, and he is clearly not paying attention to anything other than Top 40 if he arrives at such a conclusion.

I think moreso it is not that many are claiming the music was better back then though some may claim that. Quite the contrary, I think there is more quality music than ever due to increased and instant distribution methods and the ability to hear so much more music not to mention just plain old population increase, more people making more music. In other words, there is no shortage of fantastic music and we are indeed living in the Golden Age. The complaint and I think a very valid one is that POPULAR music has declined in quality. Totally subjective claim either way you look at it, but that is the way I sees it.

This appeals to the baby boomer sentiment that the music we heard in high school was the shiznit and everything since has been mass-produced dreck, but the music that was popular in our youth was mostly mass-produced dreck then too. Does the charmingly-accented author not know the history of the Brill building, of Tin Pan Alley, Motown, Phil Spector?...

...This is a popular music-snob-hipster trope but it's a conspiracy theory with no basis in fact. If this marketing is so effective why doesn't it ever work on music snobs? How is it that they are immune, but all those people without their own exquisitely esoteric taste fall prey?
