I'm OK with that!
Plus: He doesn't play blues anymore (since quite a long time in fact!), It's only FM easy listening music now. (and a Tribute to Robert Johnson will not fool me.. He does that only to fill his lack of inspiration)

I hate Legend, the "best of" compilation of Bob Marley that somehow everybody seems to have.
Right! The sound is awful, I guess they remastered the songs and that's why they sound better on the original albums..

But when you're talking about music, people will assume that you're referring to the specific style of music, not just using a vague descriptive term. Keeps things from getting confusing. Anybody, even Encyclopedia Brittanica, who calls Cage a minimalist is being at best unlcear, but in my opinion, they're just plain wrong.

The only reason I jumped on you is that you said that Cage was crap - how much of his music have you actually listened to? You should listen to his stuff from the 30's and 40's - back when the minimalist composers were little kids.

i stand corrected. my music teacher in 4th grade really idolized him and brought in a bunch of his stuff, none of which i remember by name. She also called him a minimalist, lol. I might have misjudged him since i was in 4th grade, but i dont really like any of the cage stuff on syr4 either

Sort of yes, sort of no. Minimalism is more a genre than a description, but that doesn't stop people getting confused and using the term to describe Morton Feldman, John Cage and Arvo Part as minimalist because their music is sparse - which would probably make Debussy minimalist as well. Sparse is not quite the same as minimal/ist - sparse is more a reflection on the use of space in the music. By contrast, the likes of Glass, Riley and Reich are thought of as 'properly' minimalist composers because the music uses a minimum of notes, dotes on repitition and is often systems based. I think, though I'm sure Noumenal will correct me if I'm wrong, minimalism is more defined by its systems-procedure than by the number of notes used.

Gah. That's not very clear. I'll try again later.

Alternative/ indie music has reached an all time low in the past few years.

My unpopular opinion:

Shakira is not that bad. It is a good thing that music from outside the USA and Britain can reach a mainstream audience.

Shakira is fucking great. An unpopular opinion would be to say she sounds better in English, because this is the wrong opinion.

Oh, here's a good one, on a similar tip - Tatu are better in Russian.

I'd rather listening to "lame-ass rythmless noise trash", than a shitty "indie" band like Xiu Xiu.

chuck norris was right when he/she said "Alternative/ indie music has reached an all time low in the past few years."

Yeah, I basically am tweaked out just by living here. Thankfully, I will be moving to the cities within the next 6 months.
