Musical Artists I don't "get"

Recommended Posts

If you want two recommendations, Dave's album Psychodrama is great, (from the UK) and NF's new album, The Search (from the USA) are two examples of good albums of rapers that have come out this year.

Typo alert?

While we here can`t listen to T Rex , Duran Duran , Spandau Ballet ,U2 ,Oasis , Jamiraquai ,and any albums entitled Ibiza anthems or the like .

Bolan lost it after Electric Warrior, it was probably too much influence from Tony Viscontie.

Visconti *made* Bolan what he was. He then thought he was the star and knew best and ignored Visconti’s advice. Resulting in a career nosedive.

Definitely Pink Floyd. Like rugby union I try to like them every so often - I play Dark Side of Moon - but nope don’t get it. Ty Segall is a more up to date one. Really should like given my music taste but nope leaves me cold.

I think you may have missed my point, Visconti over produced subsequent albums, Bolan was off his trolley and trying to ride his wave of T-rexctaciy  for all it was worth. Slider would have been a far better album had not been over produced.

Visconti did very subtle stuff on Electric Warrior, stuff that Bolan didn't even know he had done, when it came to Slider he pushed the subtle stuff to the front.

Bolan was off his head by then but that is another story.

Eww! Hate speech! So transphobic!!! I think you mean, "who the hell told them they could sing."

Police are probably already on their way to your house to have an official word with you.

I just take it as read that nobody actually likes Pink Floyd. They just say they do and then put on something fun when no one else is around.

Power ballads , especially ....boys of summer , best years of our lives (which essentially is the same song) ,St Elmos fire , final countdown etc,  all the way back to river deep mountain high , everything that Jim Steinman has had anything to do with , including Bonnie Tyler but especially Meat Loaf .

How is River Deep Mountain High a ‘power ballad’? A powerful performance ok but not pompous. Phil Spector may be a bit of a loon but I’d struggle to think of a better produced record by him.

Jackie Wilson. I love a bit of classic soul music in general, but his voice just grates on my eardrums. It has that harsh, back-of-the-throat sound that isn't for me.

My favourite song was Metal Guru. 

That is on Slider so I guess not as subtle?
