The Decade in Music - Your Thoughts
If you've regularly kept up with my blog or my interviews, you've noticed that I've been a bit obsessive with discussing what this decade had to offer, and what we can expect in the decade to come.
We've certainly scene a flood of artists and musicians take over our lives due to Al Gore's great invention mixed with programs such as Garageband and Reason giving everyone a chance to make their voice and instrument heard. The Internet has opened up opportunity for us to hear great new bands without having to catch them as openers, but has also saturated the market for some of us as well.
Also, while pop music has always existed in some form, other genres move themselves in cycles. The 80's gave us hair metal and hip-hop, while the 90's gave us alternative rock and the true underground. How could we forget about nu-metal and boy bands before the new millennium?
So, what genre has defined this decade? What is now considered classic rock for some of us, and will be considered for others? Really, hasn't this been a great year of music to cap the first decade of the new millennium? Do you guys agree with some of the list that have come out so far from SPIN and Pitchfork? In ten years how has your musical taste changed?
Now, Rhode Island - neither a Rhode, nor and Island...discuss!
