    We used to spin jazz discs and do the blindfolded, "who's the sax player in this cut" game late nights after gigs...I almost always won...Sonny Rollins was my x factor wild card ….I spent decades listening to those cats....whatever hip hop represents, it's art....it's meant to generate a reaction....on first listen sometimes it's not the same as after a few spins.

    This is funny to me. It's also kind of weird IMHO.

    IMO There are only 2 genres of music:

    Good music > Shit that sucks.

    There's no inbetween.

    While rap music has continued to become more popular. Overall, the quality of good modern music has declined.

    One important signal of modern musics decline is the decreasing % of radio stations that play it. More and more radio stations are changing to some form of talk radio to stay in business. (news, sports, political)

    Modern music genre is now so fragmented, downloading your favorite music online is becoming the better option over radio stations. Not sure if this is a good thing for the financial future of music, or not? But at least I don't have to suffer listening to rap and the other bad modern music genres.

    The main reason radio stations are moving away from music or just failing is because there are so many better steaming options out there now. Not because music is worse.

    Agree, in part.

    There are many better streaming options out there, for both music AND the talking heads.

    More people are taking an interest in agenda driven talk shows, and listening to less music, regardless of the source.

    Man.

    I love confirmed. So many great tracks. So many memorable hooks and bars.

    I listened to his new one last night and I dont remember any of it. Not even the beats.

    Bands still put out vinyls, so your attempt at snark failled.

    Recalibrate the bot.

    In the circles I find myself a part of I receive a lot of grief over the fact I just hate buying digital content. I have skipped out on so many things because I just dont like it.

    Id pay more for a physical copy of a game, book, music, movie over getting the digital versions every time.

    Gotta go with Letter O as well. That cover fits the album perfectly.

    He’d obviously say the same about all 3, but I’m a fan of the pictures and the stories that must be behind them. I guess you could say all album covers have a story to tell, but on The Letter O it’s like that album has plenty of them.

    I didn’t read this thread so maybe it’s been addressed. When Uber riders play music in my car, it’s usually rap with heavy use of the n word. Does Dame use the n word or profanity in his rap? That would seem to be problematic since he’s a role model for kids. On the other hand, if he’s not using the n word, is that hurting his street cred? Too clean?

    ...however, it seems as though the content in this 3rd album is a lot more "questionable" in terms of being clean and role model like :dunno:
