Tom, the answer is 47.


Seriously, I think the bar has simply been lowered as to what is good. Compare any music chart from, say 1975 or pick any other month, week or year from "back then", and see what the top hits were or albums and compare it to the same today. Dark Side of the Moon? Yellow Brick Road? Born to Run? Night at the Opera? Wish You Were Here? Physical Graffita.....

Kanye West? Bieber? GaGa? that all you got!!!

Now. Where did I put my reading glasses?

Well done, Ken. Even that music around which there is consensus (here) as being "of quality" wasn't "popular" then.

You found that on "Flakey Tunes 1040" on your AM dial? look up the top ten albums for a given year.

Dat's only because "artists" today can't create enough good songs to make one..... grin
