Referring to the original post. ARCTIC MONKEYS. A band that is buried beneath a ton of hype, and on the face of things; are not that original. The Arctics allure is their quintessential English-ness. Every so often a band comes along that use phrases and colloquialisms adhereing to their own upbringing. The music does'nt have to be particulary original. It nevertheless has honesty and poignancy. THE KINKS/XTC/BLUR-these are bands that are a reminder of ENGLAND-and I salute them. Their music sometimes will not blow your socks off, but I would never consider them overarted.

Reminds me of watching that 7 Ages Of Rock documentary earlier.

I love how they spent the whole thing pointing out that Britpop was born out of frustration of 80s mainstream music & how the major labels jumped on it & made it safe with bands like Travis, Coldplay & Stereophonics , and then right at the end claimed British music was the best it's ever been which I thought was the biggest load of rubbish i'd ever heard , especially if your giving examples like The Kaiser Chiefs.
I'd say the Arctic Monkeys are the best of a really bad bunch which is why their importance is overstated somewhat.

It seems to me your point is continually falling apart. HOW does rap lack things which would categorize it as music? You haven't given me a thing. Well, you gave me something, but then you took it back. So please, continue.
My point is still the same actually. A good deal of rap "music" doesn't have one of the essential parts of music. To Pilz, you implyed that because a magazine thought that Paul's best solo work was Ram, that it was fact.

I had made no such implication. You made an assumption that I had believed that the article would prove a fact, whereas I had merely wanted to irk my former colleague.

Fair 'nuff?

Melody: A melody, also known as a tune, is combined with harmony to create a pitch, which gives music(In my opinion)it's richness, and distinguishes it from poetry with a beat. Plenty of rap is very good, and has a melody throughtout, and plenty doesn't. If you really want I'll send you a Pm listing every song that has a melody throughout.

Nothing wrong them they just aren't music in my opinion. Plenty of rap is very good, and has a melody throughtout, and plenty doesn't.
