6 of Today’s Most One Dimensional Music Artists

November 3rd, 2013 2:00pm EST
John Mayer Paradise Valley
Some artists constantly change up their formula, while others are content.  There is nothing wrong with being content, but sometimes it puts your artistry into serious questioning.  There are many artists I could characterize as ‘one dimensional’, but I chose five who truly epitomize this description.  And yes, some of these are artists I highly respect and listen to.  I’m a meanie, I know.

India. Arie

I really do respect and enjoy India. Arie’s music, but I feel that she hasn’t truly ‘spread’ her wings for a couple of albums.  I’m all about “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but stil...

Progressive Themes To Keep Pop Music Fresh

July 25th, 2013 5:30pm EDT
Wiz Khalifa
The acceptance of formerly taboo themes in music serves as a contrast to music of the past.

An argument could be posed that musically, we live in a ‘post-innovative’ period.  What does  that big, fancy label mean in simple terms? It means that at least a majority of new musical ideas have already occurred and now music is basically in a period of recycling trends.  A generalization? To an extent, BUT after centuries of gargantuan innovation in music, it is certainly hard to invent something that somebody else hasn’t already done before.  I have a rebuttal to the argument though.
