Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?
I think that the lyrics are extremely important. Especially when they are really close to the person that wrote them. If it is something as insignificant as whatever trend is taking place then it does seem to detract from the song, but when it is a common belief or something of great meaning to the writers I think it shows through the music because each of them are capable of projecting that experience into the music.
IMO, everyone is going to see this differently I guess. Depth in lyrics isn't necessarily significant in every genre since maybe certain topics or whatever would not flow well with certain music.
