It was a exaggerated way to describe it. In other words, I don't like it when a band just keeps making the same sound. They should =expand on the sound at least.

The funnypart is Elliott sounds completely different on his first album which is basically acoustic versions of songs for his band Heatmiser that didn't work out to his last album which is experimental full band singer/songwriter stuff and Bright Eyes when from screamy acoustic music to alt-country. So going by that very bizarre standard they both fall under the amazing criteria.

Actually thinking about it, theirs a surprising amount of pop acts who have gone from one thing to another frequently. Madonna for one.

I also don't think how technical something is should come into how amazing it is at all, whats wrong with simpler music? That statement was very ignorant, you basically dismiss off entire genres of music with it that can't be amazing just because they don't have boring instrumental solos.

I never descibed how much of one thing they had to be. Those are just what I judge a band on.

And all that pop like Madonna and stuff is unoriginal.

And btw you are judging both Elliott and Bright Eyes on one part of my criteria, which is not how you are supposed to do it.

Your list of standards us a pretty poor one, let me list some important artists and see if they fit up to it.

Bob Dylan:
Technicality: Nope.
Originality: Nope
Non-recycling: Eh, he switched it up a bit but still repeated the same sound a few times:
Influence on other bands: Yes.

the Ramones:
Technicality: Nope.
Originality: Nope
Non-recycling: Other then End of the Century they played the same thing their entire career.
Influence on other bands: Yes.

Nick Drake:
Technicality: Nope.
Originality: Sort of
Non-recycling: With the exception of bryter layter which he didn't even like much, he didn't really. So thats a sort of.
Influence on other bands: Yes.

I could go on, but i'm going to split now.

there's exceptions to every rule.
Elliott is not one.
But I don't want to argue, so i'm done.

WHAT!? Crowquill! This is what I'm talking about man. It's nice that you can just "nope, dylan wasn't original at all" back it up! BACK IT UP! Now I hope you don't actually believe what you just said- I hope you were throwing away your own knowledge to make a point. Because the "Nope" by originality in reference to Dylan is one of the most musically ignorant statements I have ever, ever read.
