'Magnificent' seems pretty good at doing what it needs to do. It isn't just connoting basic 'adequacy' or 'goodness', but...something more remarkable (daresay special).

I worked one day last week with a (seemingly younger) guy from a rather specific area of the east coast ('Bronx-adjacent suburbs'), and he (within the context of a recording session) repeatedly and casually used words like 'dank' and 'sick' to describe the overall viability and effectiveness of performances and ideas (and these were generally very delicate tracks we're talking about) - it did seem like a real "I know what those words mean, but...for fuck's sake, fella" moment for me, and may have hastened my own sense of "I'm now permanently on the 'my dad' side of various linguistic divisions".

I think he was talking about New York.

I really enjoy it when there are youtube comments for some Beach Boys vocal backgrounds or something equally gentle, and someone pipes in with "sick'!
