Rock & Roll Hall of Game Posted April 29, 2017 Share Posted April 29, 2017 While i don't disagree with you, at what time did become over-saturation? Why wasn't it like that in the 80s?(I think I have my theories.)The mid-late 2000s... the digital age... Consumers can get their music for free (or little to nothing) so oversatuating the market doesn't help an artist but instead does the opposite (see Madonna's Ellen Week 2015). And with more and more millenials cutting the cable, performing on talk shows isn't ideal for the most part unless the artists is aiming towards that audience (the generation before millenials who can barely work or comprehend new technology and still goes to big box stores for their music)Obviously in the pre-2000s, music had exclusivity.. its sparkle. Consumers had to spend hours searching for a song they heard in a store or at a club which gave it its sparkle. Now that takes seconds and after that, the excitement is lost 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
