I'm pretty bewildered by this thread tbh.

Play the cards you're dealt, wishing things were different and begging for the return of the good old days (looking at the bands you mention, that was around 2008) won't achieve anything.

All the bands that achieved genuine greatness, Bowie, Miles Davis, The Beatles, Public Enemy, Bjork, Marvin Gaye, etc. etc. all stepped FORWARD and created something new even if they started off somewhere pretty generic. No great band has ever tried to live in the past, even if they found inspiration there.

As I got told on day 1 of art school: The answer is always hard work.
I agree.
People want to argue about skill vs inspiration and naive luck vs schooled craft but it takes all kinds. The people who do something memorable have one thing in common that is finding what their niche is and getting good at being themselves.
