Original I could see but modern? Doesn't the Guardian realise that some of the best music ever was produced by Beethoven and Mozart- both dead or that most of the great pop music was recorded over thirty years ago- not to say that tons of good stuff hasn't been done since as well. There is a wonderful comment by C.S. Lewis who once said that anything in fashion was actually always out of fashion (obviously its moment in the sun faded swiftly)- trend following which I suppose that the Guardian is doing there is the stupidest kind of aesthetical judgement.


I think record companies will take any phrase from a national newspaper that sounds vaguely like praise when it comes to trying to flog their wares. the faintest of priase is enough to send them through te roof.
