WM and ATL sounded pretty avant garde to me.

Some songs on ATL, yes. On occasions they did. Overall they did not.

i edited the first post before i saw yr post by the way.

i don't think any of their 90's records were great. i think there are some superficially cool moves, but only in the form of a delve into their newly contextualised past influences.

I think that in their 90's etc incarnation they made a point that they are a rock band more than anything (some interviews would prove this etc). Ever since I've bought 'Goo' for the first time I've been reminded of other bands, as well as Sonic Youth themselves. Nothing wrong with that. I think it's a cool thing.

I will accept that rock music's aggression has gone for many years, though. Its cultural relevance has been relevant for as long as it was ok to feel of it as relevant. Since most music's importance is only relative, rather than imposed by itself, it's only natural that it suffers the down's more than the up's.

its relevance has been relevant for as long as it was ok to feel it was relevant?

maybe the truth is that it isn't relevant now. at least not for guys like you or me. but we desperately want it to be out of nostalgia and a near lifelong emotional investment that we still havent got the full payoff from (and never will).

i hate the fact i still read this fucking board so much and waste so much time sitting eating smoking listening to music and barely being able to notice it then chided myself for not paying enough attention. it just feels like bad junk that makes me stupid most of the time. i know there is so much more better stuff i should be doing and reading and that music seems to just keep me in my place most of the time.

yeah that's definitely a necessary piece of knowledge for any critique of rock music.

You poor kids, you're very smart. But you have no soul. Or sense of humor.

the rolling stones are the proof that there is no soul left in rock music.

Well, the Rolling Stones are no longer a band, and haven't been since 1975 or so, so what are you talking about?
