Fight Club: The Genre Discussion Thread

I havenít posted on here for a long time as Iíve become disenchanted with the bandís direction. I have continued to buy their albums but Simulation Theory will not make it into my collection, Iím afraid. In my opinion, they peaked with Black Holes & Revelations. Sorry Muse - I never expected pop music from you.

Muse new songs aren't bad because they're pop, it's because they're bad.

Muse is already a pop band since absolution. I think we already get used to it.
Since Absolution, only Drones that far away from pop genre in their respective era.

Dead Inside is pop; Mercy is a pop-tinged song with big guitars, and the same goes for Revolt. Aftermath is quite pop, too.
To sum up, not even Drones steers away too much from pop, beside the sound.

Pop in 2000s yes.

Edit : except you're talking about chord progression and song structure... Then yeah, Drones is still pop.

It's exactly what I meant, yes.
But to be fair, you may argue that DI, while being pop in sound and melodies, doesn't really have a structure that's common in radio friendly music (verse/chorus/solo(!)/verse/chorus/brief breakdown/extremely long bridge/double chorus/"outro" double chorus)

I propose a genre discussion thread.

So whenever a genre discussion pops up anywhere, we can request that the discussion be moved to that designated thread.

In a way, yes. Most of the songs in Abso are quite "poppy" and not too crazy if you talk about their structures. The only exception on there is BAH.

What definition of rock do you have that wouldn't include Stockholm, Hysteria, The Small Print, TOADOA, and arguably even TIRO and SfA (as a ballad)? This is most of the album.

And I don't know why structure is such an important factor when the vast majority of rock music has the same basic structures.

I think you didn't read: "...if you talk about their structures". And Stockholm is obviously the least poppy about that, and there's also Hysteria to an extent.

Pop and rock are not mutually exclusive. Also Unintended was pop.
