Anyone Can Make a CD That Sells

It really burns my butt that Joe-Blow, who doesn't have a musical bone in his body, can go to a studio and make a CD that people will actually buy. All they need is the cash, the contacts and the looks - then they're set.

So they go to the recording studio, get hooked up to some fancy electronics which will alter their less-than-average voices, get some dancers and funky clothes and they're good to go. What blows my mind is the number of CD's they'll sell - LOADS!

Why is it that everyone is gobbling up this fabricated junk? This kind of over-produced music is played through a sound system while the group dances around on stage, lip-syncing or only singing the main vocals. Even though these groups don't write their own material, it's still talent isn't it? Oh wait, no it's not!

I'm not saying that a band has to write their own music but it would be nice if these groups did something musical. It's a joke that they call themselves musicians when they should be called performers because it's more accurate to say they are acting on stage. Doesn't anyone appreciate a singer with great vocals and a wicked band?

People, ask yourselves why are you buying this stuff? "Cuz they're cute," is not a good answer either. I know rock's dead at the moment, but there is good pop music out there - people that can actually sing, play instruments and write songs. Talented people. These days you just need to look a little harder and wade through the garbage to get to the good stuff.

So what do you think? Who's fakin' it and who's makin' it?
Don't just who - tell us why they are or aren't talented.

    Either SAO, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, or Day Break Illusion. The last two look like shows for little kids, considering all the main characters are girls but trust me, looks can be deceiving at first glance. Still watching Day Break Illusion.
