Thread Name: Which has been the best decade for music
Subject: RE: Which has been the best decade for music
With the continuing trend toward "mechanized music" in popular music, the idea that music's best times are ahead is extremely unlikely.
And if you include classical music, there's no chance.
There's been no Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms, Bach etc, at least since the turn of the 20th century. And some of the best "modern music" --some Vaughn Williams, Respighi etc.-- looks backward rather than forward.
