"It becomes all about here and now, no a long term play but a short term game of produce, play, forget, move on."
Are you kidding? That is exactly what the music industry has been about for, at least, the past 2 decades.
"Hey, some band named 'Nickleback' just had a hit song...quick, find as many bands as you can that sound just like them. We'll have them record a bunch of mediocre tunes and flood the airwaves with them until people get sick of that sound, and then we'll move on to the next flavor of the month."
There's always going to be a minority of exceptional artists, or else the wouldn't be exceptional, would they? But, now those artists don't need to make there music sound like the flavor of the month to be heard. No ones at the gate saying, "you don't sound like...so your music is never going to be distributed to the masses."
