I just heard one of those local “Summer compilation records”
And it’s fucking AWFUL! Goddamn. Ya know, jumping the synth-pop train is one thing, but when it’s very poorly recorded and produced and then thrown on a sampler disc. What the fuck?
The horse I’m beating is more than dead, but how uninspired and devoid of creativity can these comps get?? At least throw song with different tempos and instruments on there.
Art is ultimately subjective, so let me say that it sucks ass and that I’m disappointed with the last year or two of modern “rock”. Fall out boy’s last record? Not rock but being billed as such. PATD’s last record? NOT ROCK. It’s pop. Top 40 isn’t my thing, though I won’t berate people who like that stuff.
I will say though, if it’s not fucking rock and roll, please don’t classify it so when you release your one-button pressed, Macbook song.
