Opinions! They exist. Today is the first of a two part discussion.
Discuss a critically acclaimed artist/band that you just don’t “get”. Some artists have been worshiped for so long that they are practically musical saints. There’s a canon that years of music journalism has established; Rolling Stone, Spin, Pitchfork, The A.V. Club (woot!)
But the ear likes what it likes. Maybe R.E.M. annoys you? Do the White Stripes need a bassist? Let loose, but try to keep it civil. Unleash your hot takes today.
Tomorrow we’ll try the opposite: Stick up for a band that is critically reviled. Get your Nu-Metal CDs ready.
