If I say “This sounds straight out of the 80s” every time it does
, that will get tiresome, right? I’d like to just put a disclaimer at the top of the site: Unless otherwise noted, every album I review sounds like it was made in the 80s
. But it would be more annoying to note the exceptions, I think; starting the occasional review with Note: This does not sound like the 80s
is obviously a really stupid idea. So I’ll just continue to belabor the point, because not doing so would be a disservice to artists who do
sound fresh and purely modern. Besides, retro does not necessarily equal shitty.
