I think the issue is - it's fit to purpose. I wouldn't deny that it is made well to fit that purpose, but if its purpose is sell a million and be forgotten, then the focus is on that, and not on musicality or anything else. That's fine, and hard enough and takes talent, but its a different set of talents to playing an instrument to a high standard, or producing amazingly, or DJing well. It's a writing talent, but based on what you think others want to hear rather than expressing yourself, and therein lies the problem. It has to be shallow to appeal more generally.
It's a craft. It's about making a commodity, about making a product. It's a skill honed over countless hours and repeated attempts.
And that's great. I respect the skill of a highly practiced mason, but perfectly square cinder block buildings aren't necessarily works of art.
