    I wouldn't dream of listening to 99% of today's pop music, the odd one or 2 songs are decent and there's like one I'll actually think is good enough to buy otherwise they're dreadful. But then I look at my CDs and stuff from the 00's and 90's and wow… I love it. Jennifer Lopez, shakira, Britney, justin timberlake, Jay-z, usher, nelly, N-sync, Sean Paul, black eyed peas and even when they went full pop it still wasn't half as bad as today's music… good times
    You probably just think that because of nostalgia.

    There is a lot of nice pop music around now imo. I actually think it's better especially compared to the stuff that was coming out in the 90s. Just look at a Now CD from the 90s and how much shite was on it.

    The first album I bought myself was Abba Gold.

    Not sure what the first album someone bought me was. At the age of 14, I just asked for CDs for Christmas. It was probably one of them.

    I guess some of it nostalgia but that doesn't change the fact I hate today's music lol. The tracks on those beats the songs you'll find on the latest NOW albums. I listen to a lot of old stuff usually Rock, jazz, some pop, indie and alternative from the 60's-80's. Pop in general has been going downhill for years, I'm not much of a pop person but the pop I do listen to is mostly from the 90's and 00's and I guess it is because of nostalgia… but the mainstream music out today is still awful, I can't get into most of it. Also I quite enjoyed Pop punk growing up which barely exists today, it seems to be more influenced from hip-hop than rock today.
