I totally agree on the "Todays Aor bands are only influenced by aor...." bit; thats exactly what i meant in a post of mine a while ago.....

They just seem to be copying that one style, without realizing that the original style was a mish mash of different influences of the band members.....and you sorta can´t copy that that way......

Basically, most of the recentish bands seem like one trick ponys to me, some are very good at that particular thing, but thats about it....It´s like if you want to be a cook, but only care to be the fastest potatoe cutter there is ...;)


Granted, not everybody can write good in various styles, nor do some care about that......but i´d rather have a great "Insert name" cover band, than a crappy "we want to sound like "insert name" " -band.... Its no wonder that aor is "non commercial" these days, it´s like the scene is only revolving around itself.....


But to cut them some slack: alot of successful songwriters only write in their one style only as well and also suck of they try something different.....but they´ve all got their unique style, influenced by everything and nothing, not caring about "scences" or styles, but rather about if the song is worth recording......and others who only copy styles at least do it to such an extent that you can say "yeah, its an xxx rip off, but boy, did he do it right......."
