Worrying about the coolness factor is for teenage music snobs who haven't yet learned to stop worrying and just love uncool music for whatever it does have to offer.
Yep. Therefore, it's pretty much an inevitability they'll all come to love yacht rock as much as me someday. Even elephantor! It's the genre everyone ascends to after they've gotten all the experimental ****, extreme metal and hip-hop / random indie **** out of their systems.

On topic: Zeppelin are hit or miss, but 'No Quarter' and 'Achilles Last Stand' are great, great great.

I thought Zeppelin had solid albums imho. As far as their contemporaries I am more of a fan of Traffic, Yes (sans 90125 & Big Generator) & Genesis (sans We Can't Dance). I felt that Chris Squire and his band (Yes as a revolving door band) really jumped the shark with Trevor Rabin and his junky Pop albums. I'm more of a Yes w/Peter Banks, and Yes w/Steve Howe fan. I can appreciate Zeppelin for who they are & what they've done a lot better than those who either hate the band (naturally), or those worship Led Zeppelin and knock every other bands.

Random indie is great. If you are knocking it you are probably listening to the wrong bands. I don't know why they ever bothered to call it Alt-Rock or indie, cause some of those bands did more to keep the original intent and spirit of Rock n Roll alive than anything else out there.

I don't get the whole thing about Yacht Rock. I heard it was attributed to Christopher Cross song, "Sailing." I don't think all roads lead to "Yacht Rock." Maybe people's taste mellow. Maybe they always had an interest in the softer side of music.

All roads lead to Rhodes...and Michael McDonald.

90125 has its moments, mostly in regards to 'Changes' and the closer 'Hearts'. Big Generator has a few good cuts as well. If you took the best material from those two albums (and possibly Union) and put them together you've have one of the best prog/pop crossover record of all time.

I love all three of those albums. That probably says it all about me really.

I started out liking Arena Rock but I was 13 years old

everyone starts out like melody and harmony and some form of pop

both of you have it completely backwards

the assertion that you will "come to like melody etc" is just the dumbest thing I've read on MB

there's nothing to come to like it's not free jazz where there is some period of forming a familiarity

Maybe when you're older you'll get it. Don't you have days where you don't even want to listen to your favorite ****? Days when it just doesn't sound right somehow? And vice versa? You don't have to train yourself to listen to pop music, but you may have to "form a familiarity" to put your brain on the correct wavelength.
