Yeah. I'm of the view that pop really is a particular form, and that it arrived and really peaked in the 80s.
I really don't think late 00s / 10s pop is of much worth, and I'm really open to anything, always. But it's apparently in need of a serious update. The fact is that you still need genuinely gifted, inspired people behind the scenes giving it life, and something of a conversation with other music, but it's gotten too algorithm-y and stale.
