[0:52 for the "climax", lol.]
I've been checking out this "Best Top EDM Music" album that I got and I'm just honestly appalled by most of these tracks have no melody, no pads, no substance; and they all go for this "drop" that's essentially just a monotone bass drum kicking for 30 seconds as if that was the epitome of the purity of all music ever designed and the greatest thing on Earth.
I'm somewhat disappointed that this is the current trend. Where'd the music with actual music go?
Here's a song with REAL build-up and a REAL melody and REAL music going on. Yes, I know it's chiptune. I don't mind that it's chiptune. If EDM ever gets this far in its composition, I'll be more eager to look out for it - until then, it's just monotonous bass drums!

How do you feel about these "bass-driven" (read: bass-only) songs? Are you just as annoyed by the lack of musical content in them as I am, or am I just missing something?
