  • Favourite musical decade?

    Of the decades you can choose from in the poll, which is the one you feel most closely connected to and/or favour and why? I started tuning into music at the tail end of the 50's with the 60's being the actual true starting point of my fascination and love for music. It was a magical time and perhaps saw the biggest changes in musical direction and set the pace for decades to come. By the time the 70's hit I was a well-seasoned music lover and embraced just about everything I was exposed to. I was becoming more and more curious and that has continued to this day. I became extremely interested in Progressive Rock, so for me the period between (roughly) 1969-1978 was a time of great discovery. The very vast majority of my favourite albums come from these years, so I voted 70's. What about you?

      I vote for the best recordings out of the 1950-1960´s, because there are some really great ones here.
      other then that, I will accept any good recording from any decade in time.

        I voted for 70s, but it was the span from mid/late 60s through early 70s where progressive rock began and flourished, and when many of my favorite albums were produced.

          I can certainly appreciate that as I'm always looking for better recordings, but this poll is about the music itself. Would the 50s-60s still be your fave period?

            Yes, because I am mostly into jazz and classical
            and then progressive rock and blues
            Actually I am into all kinds of music

                  Funny since I too am a child of the 80's but I voted 60's. As a child I sang Beatles songs all day long much to the chagrin of my siblings LOL. Anyway in the 80's we used to DJ. Doing that intensively for a few years made most everything we played into Adele's Rolling in the Deep. I just got tired of a lot of the stuff. The proliferation of "smooth jazz" was also an irritant. That had me going back in time to early R&B and funk which led me to the Jazz masters. The 90s were an interesting time as well if you can look past the fashion The return of rock's raw nature on one hand and the increased sophistication of electronic music on the other proved a great counterpoint.

                    I thought the '80s was a wasteland for rock music with the exception of a few bands like Dire Straits. Disco was king. Thank God for the '90s, the grunge movement and Nirvana!

                    That said, it's a tough choice between the 60's and 70's here because the work of Donovan (psychodelic rock), Cream (improvisation), The Beatles, Stones and Doors, Hendrix and Dylan just skew the results; that's despite the great music output of the '70s. In the end, I just had to go with the '60s because those groups set the table for everyone else to follow.

                      Don't forget the loss of the art of the tuning drum kits Myles. By the 80s it was gone save for Jazz. I think that's ultimately what opened the door for drum machines.

                        You 80s haters should go look at Billboards hits from 1980 to 1989. I think it will shock you all the great music released. This is coming from a partial participant.

                          Yeah I hated that "gated" or electronic drum sound.

                            i voted '60s. Im surprised the '80s has its proponents, in pop/rock music it was new wave and hair bands most of which I couldn't stand.
