koogles you are right on the money! That genre (kuntry) needs to get angry. Last decent thing I heard from the country set was Dwight Yoakam (sp?)... and he's now a cartoon. As far as the new "rock" bands go, you're right again. A young bunch with the real goods will get the teeny record buyers' attention right quick. And I agree again that bands like Third Eye and Creed are defintely part of the problem here. In a word, they are clones of clones of grunge and offer nothing new (and crappy songs IMHO).

But it's like I was asking Andrew a few posts back. Who's giving the goods? And who's encouraging them or setting the new standard? Here's an example, I've been waiting for the new Stun Leer release since I thought this band kicked on their first album (my apologies to Mrpool... I know he hates the name, hee hee!... kidding, mate!). All I've seen are a few interviews with their singer and reviews thus far. What I gather is that it seems as though this album is something quite different from their first. Now, so far I've seen one set of reviewers totally in love with it and another set are apparently disappointed because it's not exactly like the first album.

So it would appear that a number of the bands that we follow here are damned if they do and damned if they don't. "Our" music is not going to stay the same, we all know that I'm sure, at this point. And I get tired of the same old, same old as well. But I guess what I'm trying to say is perhaps we need to open our minds and ears here to what's going on that IS different. For instance, if I hadn't been tipped to it by surfpunk, I never would have discovered Collective Soul.

Anyway... that's my .02
