Why settle for appealing or perfect or whatever, when your strength truly lies in the creative? If everybody kept making music for it to be appealing, we'd might as well live in Mozart's time and stop using overdrive on our guitars. And my opinion is also shared by others on this thread, so that's really not an argument.
I'm going to stop this argument for my part now, as it clearly seems to be getting out of hand (the degree of objectivity and sarcasm in rnaple's answer to me is a good indicator of that. I guess I had it coming, though!).
Its not been an argument more a debate except what have you been carrying on with with Maple. Oh and now you have taken it upon yourself to slang crap at me as well.
But at the same time say your going to stop.
What kinda of ****** is that?
Who are you, to declare that because I don't agree with you, I don't care about music?
That is indeed what your statement is tacitly saying.
Most people I know listen to music because it they find it appealing. You think people that listen to punk rock don't find it appealing? If they did not they would not listen to it.
Same goes for Death Metal, etc...
I know if a Death Metal band did play tightly in time people would say they suck. Oh and suppose you would say but its creative they are playing out of times and it sounds a mess but there is something great to it.
I bet you love Industrial Noise.
Oh and don't put words in my mouth either, I never once said music had to be perfect. The two do not walk hand in hand exclusively. I would dare to say if you think they do, you will fail yourself as a songwriter.
Do you think that something that is appealing or perfect is not creative? That is what you are saying in your statement about creativity as well.
Using overdrive on Guitars can be quite appealing to some people so therefore your statement about it makes for a completely inaccurate analogy.
Oh and are n you going to say so that Mozart is so appealing, that no one dislikes it? When some people cannot stand Classical.
You did not even read my posts! Had you, would have found that I did not dismiss his song completely or tell him to trash it.
You would have found I actually complimented his second and third song.
You seem to be taking this quite personally and in doing so are actually lashing out personally at people for making valid musical points with constructive criticism.
Oh and most people I know like to hear people singing on key. Like I said earlier few can get away with this like Robert Smith can.
I never said his voice sucked, I did say his singing off key makes me cringe.
On his other songs he actually has some key and it sounds cool.
you really should try reading completely before commenting as well.
