Asian music is terrible.. no rythym, its just so random. The asian brain is not geared towards music and art, it is more suited towards math and creating orderly societies.

Most of the pop musics are craps, but still there are few good ones, unfunately often non-mainstream and underground:

Like these ones:

thats utter bull$hit. so what about all those pianolists and violinist like yoyo ma. u know how many talented asian musicians there are. the only reason why there doesnt seem to be a lot of asian musicians cause its western society that we live in. i dont think an asian face in the media looks as good as a white, black, or hispanic face unless its an asian women being a news anchor. when asians decide to do art and music, they can be just as good at it but they usually start early like most talented people on earth. tiger woods started golf at three. kobe started basketball since he was a little boy.

we are percieved that way cause our culture dictates that for us. but, if u start to bend the rules, things can change. after all a human brain is like a computer. its up to the parents and adults to instill the software they desire for their child.

if anything asians are comformists whether for good or bad.

Well you missed my point. Asians are good at playing music written by others but not at composing their own. Its another form of imitation.

Asian pop seems generic as hell to me , like any other pops. Hows that different from disney and miley cyrus?

kpop can be pretty catchy, but you get sick of it super quick and never bother to listen to it again. it's all sugary hooks with no real substance.

Asia has some of the most creative music composers in the world (like for example, A. R. Rahman, Tan Dun, Yoko Kanno, Joe Hisaishi, Nobuo Uematsu, etc.), but most Asian popstars (J-Pop, K-Pop, C-Pop, Indi-Pop, etc.) on the other hand sound like unoriginal imitations of American popstars.

That's because you guys are westerners and never have a chance to listen to more asian pop music\

Actually, there is a Taiwanese Chinese guy in Asia is the most talented pop musician. His name is Jay Chou, the King of Asian Pop

Here's the link of his songs.....Enjoy it!!! Nearly all of his songs are awesome!! Don't listen to Kpop. Listen to Jay Chou's music. you guys will be surprised.His piano skills and Cello Skills are awesome and also is said to be the greatest pop music composer in Asia ever. Rap, R&B

I agree. Averagely Asians are far much better at maths and physics than white guys

Chinese, Koreans,Japanese. They are really intelligent races.
I am so impressed by Chinese high school peers' maths skills and their level, seriously. They said already started learning Calculus, linear algebra in Grade 11 in High School in China。 I was astonished when I heard this

i like a handful of japanese artists. mostly the electro house ones, like capsule.

korean/chinese/southeast asian? none.

so 99% of the music i listen to is non-asian.
