/mu/ when did you realise pop was a legitimate genre and hating it needlessly was just stupid.
>pop is a legitimate genre
>only examples of good pop albums are those that thoroughly go against the classical definitions of pop
prog-pop, post-pop, experimental-pop are all fine. But pop music, as defined as:
>emphasizing craftsmanship over artistry
>using dancing-oriented rythems
>thirty two bar verse-chorus form
>focus on catchy hooks and contrasting chorus
>simplistic melodies and beats
>limited harmonic accompaniment
>romantically themed lyrics
Meeting these criteria, as the absolute most of pop music does, would make even the greatest tracks in the history of pop-esque music entirely terrible.
Strip away everything that experimental from 'Pull Out the Pin' and you got yourself a pop song, a terrible one.
When i realized that Britney Spears' "Toxic" is a really nice track. I really hate the performance from Britney herself, but maaan, that song actually has potential if it was produced/performed by someone else!
Pop is obviously legitimate genre but that doesn't mean all pop music is good. I think you're still learning that there only exist three major genres of music (pop, folk, and art). Everything else is an extension.
Grimes is not particularly interesting or creative pop music by the way
When I heard pic related. GOAT pop.
