  1. Society is pretty much out of control in my opinion and the crap that makes up this list is simply another reflection of that.

    I realize there are a few exceptions – it’s not ALL crap. But most of it sure as hell is.

  2. I look at this Top 10 and, in general, it’s the same kinda crap that’s always been there; just less copies of it being sold than in the past.

  3. From looking at that list,that’s if you want to call it a list,it’s a representation of what’s culturally & artistically lost in this current state of music. Where are the visionaries? Don’t you miss & yearn the days when a great

    artist can shake the foundations? Where’s the rebellion?

    What happen to the angnst & pure unadulterated joy? Don’t you

    miss a great rock&roll band that can just ‘Kick Out The Jams’

    & take no prisoners? How did ‘Glee’become the arbiter of

    what’s good in music? It’s horrible & banal! One can only hope this period of music will end soon.
