When I was younger, hearing a band exhibiting a throwback sound always instigated a feeling of disgust. I was instantly appalled by the incredible lack of creativity that the band was ripping off someone else’s sound instead of creating their own. I preferred completely unique and original bands like Guns N Roses and Depeche Mode.
It wasn’t until I was older that I realized that Axl Rose was just trying to be Rob Halford and Slash was merely mimicking Brian May. While David Gahan and Martin Gore were trying their best to do their Roxy Music meets Kraftwerk impression.
Now, I get it. There is nothing truly original. So, when a band employs a quality throwback sound. I think I enjoy it a lot more than someone trying to sound different…just to sound original.
