Reaching a new trend in music?Page 1 of 1    
the trends of today can be seen really clearly on the billboard top 100. Its all groups and not bands, like Black eyed peas and Ke$ha. The masses have moved away from bands and more into hiphop and dance. Billboard is a good way to see whos selling the most product in todays trends.

When you go back far enough, everything is a mixture of past trends. Jazz and blues influenced hiphop and rock and roll, which in turn just took more influences and made it into glam rock and metal. (with a lot in between obviously)

Its hard to be an innovator in a world where most music has been done before. The music industry has reached a saturation point and is probably going to make a major shift in the near future. Especially since record labels are slowly dieing off and killing artists chances of making money by enforcing insane copyright laws through 3rd party companies who know nothing about the industry.

Trends I see:

The women have it, they have it waxed, wrapped up, in the bank, whatever. I bought my first CD by a guy in ages tonight, and I thought it was a woman! (Passion Pit, very, very good). And I heard it at Barnes and Noble.

The new artists, and producers, have grown up with electronic sounds, and can now incorporate those sounds inot their music without it sounding "electronic". Katey Perry's album is a good example, all kinds of effects, but it's still good music. The attention to detail is amazing. Same with Lady Gaga. Peaches latest is awsome as well.

The new sound came together for me, while I was watching the tv show "Las Vegas". They always had a band on, and it was very instructive. Big sound, big production, is the new thing.

It's easier for artists to hook up. Brandi Carlisle hooked up with Elton John, and more importantly, Elton Johns arranger. Big improvement for her.

A bad trend, rip-off mp'3s. At lossless prices, too.

yeah thats true, billboard just shows you whats most commercially successful at the time. The media really controls what is seen as "big" thats why i listen to satellite radio, way better options for music.
