Trance is degrading?

After listening to new Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, Solar Stone albums/singles I've made a conclusion that trance is not as good as it was in its early days when it was underground and not popularized. The songs are not as creative as they were, many artists are ripping off of each other. I'm really sad that some of the pioneers of trance music such as Oliver Lieb, Sven Vath are not working in this genre anymore. What do you think is the reason for it? The lack of creativism or the pursue to get more money and satisfy the unsofisticated mainstream crowd?

i agree with you, trance isn't good as it was but still some of new releases are good although not much of them. I think nowdays trance has been combining with other genre like techno, club house, progressive, etc. that's why trance today isn't so trance like it was.

Its most definatly lack of creatitism on CD's. I was totally disapointed when I picked up Tiesto's most resent In Search of Sunrise 7: Asia. I also think it may have to do with marketing. Maybe the labels that own the artists contracts push them in a certain direction. Because Tiesto Live. I have seen him 2x this year is FLAWLESS!! One group/individual(s) that has not failed is Scooter, George Acosta, Cosmic Gate, Elucidate, Ciacomix,. They are always pushing out fresh hot tracks.
