I see mainstream music now as the same as it's ever been; high quantities of very similar material made to cater to whatever works with the masses right now. And right now, what the masses want is generally more popular with people who don't like mainstream normally than it usually is. That's not objectively better, not that such a thing exists in music; that's just a phase which mainstream is going through which is particularly appealing. Give it a few months and people'll be saying how terrible it is again. Of course, there's always the chance that this is a rare occasion when a lot of genuinely semi-decent stuff is out there, but I feel like it's more likely that it's just what's in high demand right now.
