Yes, I do to a certain extent. I haven't lost all hope because of artists like Adele who have proven that there is still a focus on raw emotions through lyrics. Not only that, but she's a pure talent who knows how to generate interest through the song, not gimmickry, image, sex appeal, etc. I think that is one fatal flaw of being in the post-MTV era. Even though they don't show many videos anymore now, they've had a huge influence on shifting the music industry from a vocal/raw talent spotlight to a more visual focus. I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, but I definitely believe that it's skewed us too much to focus on what our eyes see than letting us imagine with our ears and our mines. Alot of times I listen to music with my eyes clothes so I can imagine in my head how I would see the story line play out; to let the raw emotion of the song carry me into a deeper place. Some artists I can always do that with like Stevie Wonder or The Beatles; but not always with other artists. Not that that's a main requirement as a listener but it helps me remember why I love music because it has such a power to take you to a place that is real and impacting that leaves you vulnerable at times, at other times empowered. I'll always love music, but the capacity I love it in has changed. I'm not sure if it's all about the time in which we live in or more so the changing values of the industry itself.
