Bounty Hound What makes a new song a folk song? (1710* d) RE: What makes a new song a folk song? 16 Sep 14

'Al and Bounty seem to regard argument and honest criticism as "insulting"

Not so Jim, but the 'honest' bit worries me, looking at your comments about the video, you do seem to be in a minority of one with your issue over hearing the words, and I'm well aware that the vocals in that clip sit nicely above the accompliment, so please don't 'insult' me by trying to tell me anything different.

I've therefore got to question your motives for the statement, and can only conclude that it is born out of your dislike for folk/rock as a style (which I happily accept as we all have differnt tastes) and a desire to argue for the sake of it!

There is also your unsubstantiated claim about the demise of folk/rock, which in all probability was made for the same reasons.

The problem is Jim, when you post dogmatically about something you clearly do not have the expertise in, it cheapens everything you say. I'll say once again, I have great respect for your work, but please keep your comments to that area of expertise and don't argue just for the sake of it, then we can simple agree to differ on matters of taste, and all get along fine!
