Quote from: aligreto on September 24, 2022, 10:37:47 AMBowie: Earthling I find it interesting the way that some musical themes and motifs from this album hark back to much older albums.
Quote from: SimonNZ on September 24, 2022, 03:48:44 PMThats an interesting take. Which older albums are you thinking of?

Quote from: Todd on September 26, 2022, 09:20:36 AMYes, I'd never seen her name until this morning. It's a decent album. I'm not sure what's outlaw about the album, but sub-genre labels don't really appeal to me.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 26, 2022, 09:52:22 AMDo you have Spotify or something along those lines?
Quote from: Todd on September 26, 2022, 09:55:31 AMI use Amazon to stream music. I use Wikipedia to randomly find 2022 releases to listen to. I am making an effort to listen to a decent cross-section of new music to hear what is out there.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 26, 2022, 10:46:08 AMListening to her music, where does one put her: country? Rock/pop? Folk?
Quote from: Todd on September 26, 2022, 11:04:15 AMI'd say country for most people, particularly given the song writing style. Personally, I use only three broad categories when determining what to listen to - classical, jazz, pop/everything else. I see rock and country and folk as big sub-genres of pop music, for instance, but I am also not a musicologist or marketing professional. Sub-genres have spun out of control for me. If I want to listen to what used to just be called heavy metal, there are now grindcore (?), doom, gothic, mathcore (?), post-metal, and dozens or hundreds of other sub-genres. Really? I want loud, distorted guitars and mostly incomprehensible singing when I choose to listen to such music, and everything else just complicates it.Streaming has been most beneficial for me in the pop/everything else category. I can start listening to anything for no additional cost, and if I don't like it, I can just stop listening. I still tend to listen to entire albums because that is just how I operate. An album must be exceptionally bad for me to stop listening before it is done.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on September 26, 2022, 11:24:05 AMDo you find that after listening to an album that if you like it, you end up buying a copy of it? Or is that more relegated to classical or other genres?
