I thought that it was a pretty good book; I found it quite funny how indignant Dave Thompson got at any music past 1976.

Yes I'm sure everyone coming in here is going to post something about how I shouldn't be so close minded (If they didn't before, I'm sure after they read this they will).

So YOU hate new music or the AUTHOR hates new music?


Either way, it's stupid. THere always was and always will be shitty mainstream shit, and there will always be the undergroung gems you have to look a little while for.


EDIT:

It is quite common, though looking at your profile, your 17! At 18, I started hating new music, though I still kept up with most the bands that were popular when I was still in HS. There is a lot of good new music out there, but you have to remember...marketers and record companies will see a current trend as 'stale' and will find a new sound/fashion/whathaveyou to cater to a new generation. Usually this happens every 4 to 6 years.

Good bands imo are those that still making music with their own distinct sound despite not being in the spotlight anymore. Some bands are exceptions though, like Aerosmith.

I like how closed minded you are. The current closedness of your mind is at a perfect amount. You definitely shouldn't change it.

I like it. I think if you like Red then you probably will at least enjoy it. I actually find that I'm enjoying it more every time I listen to it. You can stream the songs on their myspace.

If you get it I suggest going for the deluxe edition. It's a few dollars more, but the 4 extra songs are worth it I think.

Nice. Sucks that you can't get to the Weezer show though. I've seen them twice so far and they were amazing both times. Unfortunately I had to suffer through Angels and Airwaves to see them the first time.
