Re: Which decade has the best sounding music?

^^^Agreed. The 90's was THE era for Hip Hop. Hip Hop was truly at its high point. And the 60-70's had so much going from rock, jazz, RnB, soul, funk... And even the early remnants of hip hop.

But, I'd say my favorite decade is the one we are currently in now. Everything from the past is kind of being rehashed, remixed, mashed together and revitalized in all kinds of new and WEIRD ways... And pretty much anyone can participate in it due to the widespread availability of the internet. I can literally go on soundcloud right now and hear something entirely new and different by some Joe Shmo that he recorded in his bathroom. This decade is a good time for music. It's almost celebratory of our past in a sense.

Re: Which decade has the best sounding music?

If we're talking about sounds themselves, I'd have to go with the 70s, even if just for the drum sounds alone. From the early Police records, to the P-funk albums, and John Bonham's work with Zeppelin, I don't think drum sounds got better. They were clean, but not TOO clean. Even today a lot of the samples we use are based on or from 70's sounds.

There were some high points in the 80's but it was like everyone saw a lot of the digital recording and synth technology and was determined to shoehorn it where it didn't belong. It's one thing to hear that stuff on a Prince record, but some of the other stuff at the time that used it was like, O_o

Re: Which decade has the best sounding music?

I used to say the 1990s, but I recently bought some CD's from the 1990s and the mix quality is terrible even though the musical ideas are great. I guess it really depends upon each track. Some mixes from the 1990s were great, as were some from the 80s and the 2000s.

I'm just wondering what decade or era you think has the best sounding music. I know everyone has their own preference for what sounds best and just wanted to hear some opinions on it.

Personally, it's a hard decision for me, and here are some of my thoughts on the sonic characteristics of some of the decades:

Pre-80s: Great musicianship with very primitive recording techniques. I think you find lots of extra noise in recordings. I think there's more of a natural sound and feel to the music that is charming.

80's: Sounds like they just discovered reverb and delay. Very overproduced sounding for the times. The decade has a strong emphasis on melody and image. I love 80's music!

90's: One thing stands out to me. I listened to a few pop albums from these times and realized how important the kick drum, bass, and vocals are for the mix during this decade. The vocal pretty much always provides the main melody while the drum and bass sit right there with it. All other sounds in the mix seem to only support the song and aren't very loud. Very interesting. I like.

00's: Loudness in music starts to get pushed further and further, and by the end of the decade, albums are almost as loud as it gets. Music in the latter half of the decade really has an "in your face" feel to it. Everything is more up-front, and the instrumentals play a more vital role. The melody's are shared by the instrumentation and vocals (as compared to the 90's). More advanced techniques are used, and the music often has a more pumping feel.


Personally, I love the 90's because of the very "light" sounding mixes and emphasis on vocal talent. But I also love the "in your face" feel of modern music. But then again, I love the playfulness of the 80's. It's a hard decision as to which I think sounds the best. What do you guys think?

90s early 2k for EDM

Just felt like more originality back then... now days feels like mainstream EDM (as weird as that sounds saying) is stuck in a rut in the U.S. anyways. Maybe that's because it's becoming mainstream. All music has cycles though.

Re: Which decade has the best sounding music?

If we're talking purely mainstream music I think the 70's were the best (used to be a big psychedelic rock head). The 90's were okay too. When it comes to music in general I couldn't really choose one, every decade was unique and had a shitload of great music

LOL @ "very primitive recording techniques" and "lots of extra noise". Crack open a copy of Aja and educate yourself.
