Music genre chaos

This piece considers the assignment of genre to music. Is it sometimes just not really very helpful?

I don’t stick rigidly to labels, but sometimes others’ assignments mislead. Best to listen and hear for yourself. Then like/dislike is a better way of discerning.


One thought on “Music genre chaos

  1. Interesting (if inconclusive) link. Thanks Richard. Here (for interest) is the comment I left.

    Even the impossibility of writing about genres and classifications demonstrates the quicksand of the post-modern world, does it not?
    Having recently attempted a brace of 100w descriptions of 12 music genres, I can confidently support the conclusion: Read the label but trust your ears.
