Even accepting the premise that people have different tastes.This is the most ridiculous statement i have ever read on a music board. I shall look at you in a different light mr Coan.
I'll accept Scott 4 is a fine album. Like I said, there are two amazing songs there. And the rest really is rather good. But I can't get with his other output. There's no root melody to much of it, and they dress it up with all manner of expensive shit - harps and horns and that - but it's all so meandering and boring. I'm longing for a great swoop of accessible tune in the vocal, or something - never comes. Lots of talent there, but too much dancing around and avoiding aspects that make all the great pop so loveable.
Alrighty , fair enough. Yer still wrong though.
