Some good, some bad, some simple, some complex, some real bands, some lone producers with a keyboard, serious lyrics, and silly lyrics. I don't quite understand how someone can make their listening decisions based strictly on genre, or on which parts are real or synthesized. Every song deserves to be liked or disliked on its own merits, or lack of.

It's no different than saying "I got one of those Forum kits and they're terrible! All Pearl drums suck, and I'll never play a Pearl drum again!" It doesn't actually matter whether Pearl drums suck or not - it's the reasoning that's faulty.

Thank you Bermuda. You're far more diplomatic than I.
