Years ago I started a thread asking why soul in general gets a free pass around here as far as criticism goes. You very seldom, if ever, see a negative word written about any soul or R&B artist. I remember saying I was never fond of Aretha Franklin and a few of you thought I was nuts.
Alright, let's identify the ones we don't think were as good. I'll start with a big one....
Barry White. Eh, some tracks are fine, but I've just never been able to get into him, and never saw what all the fuss was about.
That actually felt kinda good to say.
