I don't listen to music. What's a non-embarrassing band?

Postby NYC2014 » Wed Apr 25, 2012 12:00 am

More than once I've been asked and have been like...uh...Pink Floyd? (In reality, I can't stand PF - I've tried more than once but it just sounds horrible.)

What's an appropriate band to say is my favorite? I'm a 22 year old male 1L in NYC, by the way.

+1. Definitely Nickelback. Intellectual lyrics, but still danceable.

If you can't pick up the subtle Oedipal undertones of "Burn It To The Ground", that's on you.

I've been a big Genesis fan ever since the release of their 1980 album, Duke. Before that, I really didn't understand any of their work. Too artsy, too intellectual. It was on Duke where Phil Collins' presence became more apparent. I think Invisible Touch was the group's undisputed masterpiece. It's an epic meditation on intangibility. At the same time, it deepens and enriches the meaning of the preceding three albums. Listen to the brilliant ensemble playing of Banks, Collins and Rutherford. You can practically hear every nuance of every instrument. In terms of lyrical craftsmanship, the sheer songwriting, this album hits a new peak of professionalism. Take the lyrics to Land of Confusion. In this song, Phil Collins addresses the problems of abusive political authority. In Too Deep is the most moving pop song of the 1980s, about monogamy and commitment. The song is extremely uplifting. Their lyrics are as positive and affirmative as anything I've heard in rock. Phil Collins' solo career seems to be more commercial and therefore more satisfying, in a narrower way. Especially songs like In the Air Tonight and Against All Odds. But I also think Phil Collins works best within the confines of the group, than as a solo artist, and I stress the word artist. This is Sussudio, a great, great song, a personal favorite.
