Re: WTF? Arcade Fire wins a Grammy

Well, contrary to everyone else it seems, I do like Arcade Fire and would never say they are 'unoriginal'. However, I don't care whether they or anyone else wins a Grammy. It's just someones opinion as to who is worthy of such an award. Who are these people anyway and what makes them so special that they are able to make such a decision? All music is down to personal taste. What I find fantastic, a Grammy judge may think is crap. Is their opinion more valid than mine?

I know. I hate awards and the media sleb fest that surrounds them. Uh.

Yes, certainly, and I expect they get PAID for their opinions.
It's the same with film reviews, tv reviews, and CD reviews. Again it's down to personal taste. I remember reading a totally ruthless, scathing review of Cobra in NME or some similar publication. It made me wonder what 'qualification' that person had to make his opinion more valid/important than anyone elses.

lol I watched a few minutes for Mick Jagger. It was his first Grammy visit, which says enough in itself.

The Roots have more talent than Marshall Mathers. But, he's commercial for the suburbs. So I take it for what it is (fluff).

yeah...i don't get it at all. Sometimes i like to read reviews that are like a more educated and articulate version of my own feelings about an album. Its re-affirming. But, yeah...it's all just opinions.

Re: WTF? Arcade Fire wins a Grammy

They seem the perfect choice to win a grammy. Slightly alternative but mainly pop. Credible music so Dad and his son can like it.

I don't want to knock anyone's right to like it. I just think it is the epitome of Grammy music.

How is it slightly alternative? Like they look like a bunch of construction workers that don't dress like lady gaga?

Re: WTF? Arcade Fire wins a Grammy

I think that is my point. Other nominees or winners in history are people like Smashing Pumkins, Pearl Jam, Radiohead, U2, Foo fighters. They have that look that says, I'm a bit classic, a bit weird but normal enough for your Dad not to shout "bunch of faggots" at the TV screen. Agreed?

Re: WTF? Arcade Fire wins a Grammy

I don't care for AF either, but my S.O. loves them so I listen to them all the time. At the risk of sounding flipant the world that loves the Grammy is like a parallel universe right here beside us which we can move through at will or sometimes it envelops us.
