One of my life’s greatest regrets was having been born in a piss-poor decade for music, an era marked by appalling overproduction, empty soundscapes filled with badly-played synthesizers and wide sound fields designed to imbue significance to insignificant music. With a few notable exceptions, rock during this period was particularly weak, dominated by the superficial sounds of arena rock. However, there were a few bright spots and plenty of seeds planted that would bear fruit in the 90’s.
