I believe the change is partly because so much of music is mixed to be played on ear buds and low rate mp3. The recording industry's loudness wars are responding to th every low dynamic range one has in the car or limited systems, they raise the average volume without raising the peak level with compression.
In other words, it is the companies who in effect decided and determine what is popular and implemented through mass marketing. The folks here are the 1% who have been known to sit down and listen as opposed to having musical background entertainment.
Anyone who is working in that direction gets my vote.
