Opinion on modern music

According to The Daily Mail, the 48-year-old musician doesn't entirely have a positive take on the current standards of the music industry. His particular complaint was that all the artists and the music released by them 'look and sound the same.'

He elaborated:

If you take Top Of The Pops from 1988, any week, the varying of colours, the eccentricities, the madness and the craziness is extraordinary.

He further added:

If you put on a chart show in 2022, every week, every artist sounds like every artist and they look like every artist. It's not their fault, I'm not having a go at them.

With over three decades in the music industry with various achievements under his belt, Williams' perspective may be perceived as a scathing but experienced take on the current standing of the industry.
