    REM was turned on because frankly they started to suck eventually. I'm just calling a spade a spade. Taylor Swift isn't bad because she's popular, she's bad because her music sucks and is fluff for teenage girls.
    Sure, her music is light and fluffy, it is also melodic and often tells a story. As someone alluded to a great portion of the Beatle catalogue was light teenage fluff; does this mean The Beatles suck, of course not.

    Her music is growing and changing. Her songs don't all sound like "Teardrops on My Guitar" and "Tim McGraw" anymore. A perfect example is "We Will Never Ever Get Back Together". Personally I don't like it, but I am not going to shred a songwriter for trying to step out of her box, trying to do something different (except when KISS and Niel Young tried to add a disco sound, that sucked).
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    All kidding aside, the album itself contains some AOR gems--"Anything She Does" and "Domino-Parts I and II--but I don't care at all for the ones I previously mentioned.

    I never even remotely thought that was possible.

    That's how they describe themselves. If you heard the music I play, you'd understand I'm not one to judge.

    sorry to interupt the Taylor Swift death duel, but back to the original topic (and if the question is, what kind of music makes you cringe, how can one argue what makes me cringe? how would they know?)

    Most "deep" heavy metal, ie megadeath, slayor, pantera and a slew of others I've heard friends listen to in the past.

    I hope some pictures show up from the last one. I was absolutely covered in blood. I also wore a hanger around my neck, but I won't specify what my costume was. Needless to say, I won the costume contest.

    Taylor Swift isn't bad because she's popular, she's bad because her music sucks and is fluff for teenage girls.
    This is my favorite statement in the whole thread.

    I don't like it, therefore the only reason it sells is because teenage girls buy fluff.

    Really- so if that were true, I guess all teenage fluff records must sell a million in a week. Right.

    Taylor Swift strikes a chord with her audience. Her combination of lyrics and melody move people. It is pop music with a little country thrown in.

    It isn't Led Zeppelin, but for what it is, it's pretty good.

    Invisible Touch is a great album. Solid all the way through...
