I always preferred Sting's solo work to The Police. I only wish that show he did in Toronto with Paul Simon hadn't been sold out….

I'm going to do a really daring comparison that practically borders on blasphemy for 70's art-rock/pop lovers. ;)



The 21st century equivalent. I do think the Yes song is better, but Panda Bear gives 'em a run for their money.

I'll personally take that Panda Bear song over the Yes song. Interestingly enough, Christopher Bear cited Person Pitch as the album of the decade and mentioned that song in particular.

From another album I got into early this year:



A potential 'oldie' comparison - in this case chosen because the lead singer in the song above sounds a bit like Elvis Costello. ;)


EDIT: Decided to use a different song

I'll always have a special spot for '80s music. 1983 in particular was a wonderful music snapshot in time you'll never see duplicated again. Michael Jackson hadn't gone to the dark side. The Police was at its peak. Def Leppard broke big. The list of superlatives goes on.

This got me to thinking...

Spoiler for Old Pop vs New Pop:

I don't get how some ppl have to claim the stuff they like is the best, i luv the pixies and the alternative movement in the early 90's but i don't f*ckin claim it all went down hill from there.

We all favor an era in music but it doesn't mean we have to be stuck in it much less claim that modern music doesn't compare to it. There's nothing to gain from that mindset, all it does is trap you in a time bubble.

On a serious note, I've gotten into pop music for the majority of my life. Carpenters, Elton, Bee Gee's, etc paved the way for Michael Jackson, Wham!, Spandau Ballet, The Bangle's, Madonna, etc., which paved the way for Toni Braxton, Brian Adams, Mariah Carey, etc. which paved the way for Brittany, Aguillera, Destiny's Child, and now we have Beyonce, Katie Perry, Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Adele, etc. all of which make some pretty outstanding music.

I grew up as a true blue, died-in-the-wool Metal Head, and when I think back on the pop music I've been subjected to, I'd be lying to myself if I said it wasn't at least a little bit catchy, and that it doesn't conjure up internal images, and feelings. After all is said and done, that is what music is supposed to do.

I probably just destroyed any fragments of any kind of street cred I may or may not have had.
