Interesting discussion. “Best” is a difficult thing to define.
I am generally a trance listener and composer (Cape Town having great influence over me), but as most of my colleagues I often find inspiration in the quality music outside the electronic genre:
- Vangelis – Conquest Of Paradise – released 1492. J/k 1992.
- Scorpions – Wind of Change – made in 1991 for the events during 1989 (the year I was born), it is a world recognized masterpiece with too much meaning
- Kansas – Dust In The Wind – released 1978
- Simon & Garfunkel Sound Of Silence – released 1967
And the list goes back down the years.
Nowadays, with the loudness war at its peak and overcompression the music is far from warm. But this commercial age will pass, you will see. It can only go to a certain level of commonness. People are already going back to basics.
LandonWilson saidI’d say you were more of a 00’s child if you’re 15. It’s already 2000 by the time you’re 4
I’m 15 and I think the 90s has the best music. Luckily I grew up listening to decent music rather than the horrible things people listen to nowadays.
agreed Im 25 and Im a child of the 90’s not the 80’s ;
) and your 15 your STILL growing up :) as for the best generation thats the 60’s
If you got used to a certain type of music, you may consider it the best what ever generation you are in.
90’s music will always be the best pure cheese!
Are you kidding me?
70s + Drum n’ Bass + Dubstep
