All of these. All gimmicks.

Except weird time sigs. As long as the music sounds good, of course.

I can see what you're saying, Madcap. Being in an odd signature for the sake of being in an odd signature is pretty showy and pretentious.

This, especially when it's either shitty generic deathcore or shitty generic instrumental hard rock. This goes for "metal" versions of video game tunes as well.

yeah, if you have to do math to "understand" or "get" a piece of music, it's stupid. If it sounds stupid, it sounds stupid.

Gotta say I agree with the Madcap on the time signature thing. Although it pains me, because one of my favorite duets, The Mantis and the Moon, has fairly complex timing and time signatures throughout.

I guess I mean mainly the 80s stuff where it's extremely noticable.

the loudness war has been really annoying in both EDM and metal. killing dynamics which are a solid 5th of a musical piece, imo

Synths are a double-edged sword. When used right, they fill in some of those holes in the mix. Of course, most of the time they're used wrong and it turns a song into 80's bubblegum pop.

I use them all the time but keep them low in the mix so it adds detail without taking away focus from the main instrument or vocals.

Weird time signatures are at their best when you don't even notice that they're weird. 70s rock and prog had a lot of stuff that didn't sound weird even though it had lots of dropped beats and/or time shifts... See "Spirit of the Radio" or "The Ocean" if you don't believe. But like most thing time signatures can become a gimmick when they're basically forced...

But slow acoustic covers of almost anything should be a punishable offense. I'm also sick of these "folk" and "bluegrass" types infiltrating indie rock who refuse to use any electric instruments or proper percussion because "tradition" or something. BANJO IS NOT AN ACCEPTABLE CRESCENDO INSTRUMENT; here's an electric guitar plugged into a Marshall, try that instead, FFS. Also get a drummer! I know they're usually window-licking mad, but that's part of the fun! >

You're both either listening to the wrong artists or just using them wrong.

Banjo is acceptable in any situation in both music and life in general.
