You just said Taylor Swift is a genius? lol I feel like im having a deja vu for whatever reason. There's nothing genius about Taylor Swift (you'll find another person pop up like her sooner than later), can't really say Frank Ocean is as well. He has an above average voice at times, and good lyrics.

 

taylor swift is absolutely a musical genius. people like her don't pop up. it's why rolling stone called her one of the last true rock stars. yes she has some meaningless music, but have you actually listened to the other stuff on the albums. it's not exactly my favorite type of music at all but her ability to put meaningful thought to page and make it musically beautiful. i don't think you understand what it means to write your own lyrics, have them be meaningful, on top of writing the musical portion of a track. something taylor swift does on the bulk of her songs.

 

Frank ocean wrote every record on his album except for "fertilizer" which isn't really a song anyways. and his lyrical ability is incredible better than anyone in R&B (especially considering most R&B artists don't even write their own songs)

 

average voice? lol that's ridiculous. average in comparison to who

haha. taylor swift a rockstar? please don't reference Rolling Stone. Their credibility has lessened throughout the years.  Taylor swift is not a musical genius by any stretch of the imagination. Probably because you are a listener you think that, but to musicians shes nothing special. Obviously, shes talented, she makes catchy songs... some songs that i even can enjoy with my girl, but that doesn't make her a genius.  You are talking to someone that is in a band, that is a main component in constructing songs musically, that has helped write multiple songs and has toured to various places on the west coast.  I help maintain a studio that is starting from nothing. I'm not saying  this to pound my chest or to say i'm superior to anyone or that i'm great or anything. I'm saying this because I understand music and I understand what goes into it is not easy, but hard work.  

 

Let me correct all this by saying, music is all about personal taste, so its already wrong of me to judge YOUR opinion.  For that I apologize.  Who you think is a musical genius will differ from me.  Thats why i love music.  I'm not even going to list who i think has better voices than Frank, cause it doesn't matter. His sounds doesn't resonance so greatly to ears as it does to yours and thats great.  Music is great.  I respect your opinion, and i hope you respect mine.

genius? no

difference? yes

 

she's still not a musical genius in any sense of the word... Jimi Hendrix was a musical genius,  led zeppelin, Michael Jackson.. beatles, pink floyd... those are musical geniuses

 

 

 

JT is an above average musician, he has a great voice, but his main thing is his etertainment value.

I agree all of those people are musical geniuses, but I believe there are different degrees of genius (because there is)

Is she a genius up there with the greatest musical geniuses of all time? No

But as of right now, in this era I absolutely believe she is.

Listening to JT's "The 20/20 Experience" album right now. Halfway through at the moment and so far it's pretty good stuff.

 

Esp like the following songs so far:

-Tunnel Vision

-Strawberry Bubblegum

-Don't Hold the Wall
