Achtung Baby was a huge record for me when i was a kid. Madonna has amazing songs from back in the day if you’re secure enough to not be bothered by the fact that she is a female pop celebrity.

p.s. you’re kind of an asshole.

i agree that it used to mean something more specific and now it is a lazy broad stroke term used mostly incorrectly.

Buuut…even when it did mean something, it was still pretty much bullshit. An independent artist (as in, not signed) didnt necessarily sound like another unsigned artist just because they were unsigned….so it was always a pretty lazy overgeneralized term.

it can be said that even though it doesnt mean the artist is actually unsigned, one can draw an “idea” of what kind of music is being referred to as “indie rock.” not very specific but it surely still points to genre/style/composition references, whether it’s true to what the word “independent” actually means.

and while we’re on the subject….jazz may be more easily measured than other genres but a ton of genres have since evolved to encompass a wide spectrum of stuff that isnt so easily measured anymore. “pop”, “electronic”, “alternative”, “ambient”, etc. etc. etc are pretty terribly thrown around and rightly so…people care too much to use quick terms to label music and dont try hard enough to actually describe it. conversely, it’s almost a necessary convenience

actually, deadlines…
“it’s really not that good” is the only opinion part of that sentence. “nor is it much different than what’s been done already” can be measured and is, in fact, correct. this song is not that much different than what they’ve been doing…and the state of something differing from another is quantifiable…this still applies to music.
i think Stuart put it well, below:
“This just sounds like they’re rehashing old ideas. It kinda seems hollow, like its a decaying husk of they’re trade mark sound.”
