Thread Name: Complex arrangments of traditional music
Subject: RE: Complex arrangments of traditional music
I sometimes feel that the modern day bands have TOO complex arrangements on TOO many tracks on a CD. I think it is OK to do maybe one or two per CD, but every track is a little over the top.
Often I find the arrangements get in the way of the overall song, and it loses something of the essence. However, I have to add that it is great that young bands are doing traditional material and I am all for it moving forward and not being stuck in the past.
