A Thought: Welcoming Weird Music

As trends and fads usher in faster and stronger, one phase has become integral in the music world: Reinvention. There has been more genre changes, aesthetic takeovers and surprise albums in the last five years than in the the previous 20. And while many critique this new lifestyle for the mainstream music scene; which undoubtedly has become overpopulated with bubblegum rap and watered down dubstep, there is something magical and more powerful than the actual music itself and that is execution. In this new world where reinvention and execution has taken center stage, it would be ignorant for me to say we have found no diamonds in the rough. New identities and sounds are able to be made now. In accepting the extreme and weird music of today, we have also welcomed diversity; and in the long run that is a very good thing!
