I have a really hard time being patient with people who get locked into one era, “Oh there’s no good music after the grunge era, there’s no good music after the sixties.”
Wrong people, you want that energy you liked as a kid? Put down that needle, leave your home and go see somebody new and random. You neve know what’s going to happen to you.
But overall I think the best era for music is right now. And the reason I do is because everything is available. Everything. Imagine trying to find fresh rockabilly records in 1975. It’s not like that anymore.
