One of the major benefits of today’s out-of-kilter pop scene—where it’s entirely conceivable that the best-selling artists of the moment are likely to have a shelf-life of months, rather than years—is that today’s most sophisticated music fans can go about their business having absolutely no opinion about the latest works by Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, or Beyoncé and still sound like they know what they’re talking about.
Especially when they use big words!
And as we come to a new release week when there are no “major” new albums, no long-awaited returns to the scene by artists we’re likely to completely forget within five years, we can instead pick and choose from a wide array of truly interesting albums from artists both old and new--who apparently make records more for the sake of art rather than money, or of making an overblown career statement concocted purely to jettison them into the stratosphere of the super-rich.
Between you and me, I like the sexy ones best!
