Yes indeed. America had Ezra Pound, Lester Bangs, Dorothy Parker and many others.

For the most part, Americans don't seem to understand the emotion behind music.

Thats a pretty sweeping generalisation, not to mention an ignorant thing to say.

Not true. We enjoy crying to sappy songs about beer and trucks.

Hm. I forgot to add, that FOR THE MOST PART, bands from America who do get the emotion behind music are usually inspired by British bands.

Other than The Strokes, I can't remember a recent American band who made me want to get up and do something after listening to their album.
