I do not care much about the listed middle of the road shit .

For new material I mostly listen to what might be labelled ethnic music, like Ali Farka Toure, Vieux Farka Toure, Toumani Diabate, Salif Keita, Rokia Traore, etc. and what might be labelled Blues like the music by Sonny Landreth, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robert Randolph, North Mississippi Allstars, Warren Haynes, Joe Bonamassa, Dr. John, Buddy Guy, Jazz like music by Michael Brecker, Derek Trucks, Terje Rypdal, Ralph Towner, Pat Metheney, Scofiled, Garbarek, Norah Jones, Cassandra Wilson, James Blood Ulmer, etc. etc.. and find almost all of it well produced with no indications of the loudness idiocies that MOR stuff seems to be saddled with.

Maybe time to change taste...I perceive that stuff listed by the thread opener as meaningless dreck with no new ideas and of utter blandness

And what makes you think we care about your exquisit taste in music?


Because the shit you are listening to is apparently mastered as it deserved - with a shitload of compression and of lousy sound quality.

First of all you don't know what exactly I'm listening to and secondly I suggest you take your generalizations and prejudices somewhere else.
And not matter how bad something I listen to is mastered I still don't care about your "taste".
