    To be honest, I shouldn't have referred to the UK box thread. A totally separate item. My main point is you go out of your way to say you have not heard of something. Isn't that true?

    I wouldn't say "out of my way" more than any poster. As I said, my point isn't really that *I* personally am not familiar with that music, it's frustration that ANY of us should be expected to consider it any more than crap. Maybe it's just a "get off my lawn" stance, but I don't want to know about that crap, and fortunately, I really don't.

    Obviously my point in THIS thread is that music that's undeserving crap is largely the top selling music now. Maybe I'm wrong though, maybe it's all excellent.
    You'd have no way of knowing if something was undeserving crap unless you'd heard it.

    As others have pointed out, not knowing who Bruno Mars is, is not something that raises the possibility that you are a discerning and independent thinker about music, so much as raises the possibility that you are detached from even the rudiments of contemporary popular culture.

    It makes people think you are more this guy




    than this guy

    LOL. Fair enough, in most respects. I'm sure Beethoven would have been most intrigued by Bruno Mars.

    For the record, I don't think Jed goes out of his way to be ignorant about new music; I think it comes naturally.

    Yes, when it comes to new, non-prog music, I'm an ignorant.
    I don't want to live in a post-Neo Prog world!

    I would have had to add a bunch of NEVER HEARD or ALWAYS CHANGE THE STATION to Jkl2000's list in post 14.

    I own a Panic! At The Disco album (not the one on this list) and think it is great. Beatles influenced pop done really well. Some of you here may enjoy them.

    I know who all of these people are and have heard things by them but the music does nothing for me. Rihanna, Joey + Rory, Bruno Mars, J. Cole, 21 Pilots....it doesn't click for me. However, there are some that do: Civil Wars/Joy Williams, Paramore, Kacey Musgraves...they are all excellent.

    If I may ask, how is it that you you come to hear artists like Bruno Mars and Joey & Rory?

    Does Bruno Mars still exist?

    I own a record store so I try to keep up with what's hot, whether I personally like it or not and I work part time for a radio station that plays country music, so I hear a lot of stuff there. Bruno does indeed exist. His new album is selling OK. Not to my taste, but people do seem to like the guy's music. Joey + Rory sold a ton of albums here while she was battling cancer. Everybody wanted a CD. Chris Stapleton still moves multiple copies every week.
