Scientific Analysis of Today's Pop Music

    "A team led by artificial intelligence specialist Joan Serra at the Spanish National Research Council ran music from the last 50 years through some complex algorithms and found that pop songs have become intrinsically louder and more bland in terms of the chords, melodies and types of sound used.

    "We found evidence of a progressive homogenization of the musical discourse," Serra told Reuters. "In particular, we obtained numerical indicators that the diversity of transitions between note combinations - roughly speaking chords plus melodies - has consistently diminished in the last 50 years."

    Link's broken.

    50 years isn't fair , 50 years ago jazz was still for sale in record stores.

    I vote we have jazz and "legit" music stricken from the record
    to smooth out that annoying little wrinkle in the curve.
