I agree about the problem with drum tracks sequenced by people with little to no musical background... but that fits into my 90% crap theory... occasionally you may find a singer or whoever programs the beats, that makes interesting rhythms but that is very infrequent.
I wonder if that transition will make the jump from cartoonish programmed instruments to human played instruments. My bet is the decision lays with the producers.
