Quote of the day
I’m elbow deep in term papers and final exams, so you’ll have to make do with the wisdom of others. This, from one of today’s better comments:

If a CCM artist is copying a secular cousin, how does that make their genre worse than SG, who has been copying itself for the last 60 years?
To me, the genre’s popularity increased with groups like the Goodmans, Hinsons, and Crabbs, and I guarantee that if you judge by album sales, you will find that the outside-the-typical artists (although despised by much SG fans) were outselling anyone because of their originality. But, I’m sure you would compare those artists to ’secular’ cousins as well in country music or wherever.
Although I do not agree with everything you write, I see nothing wrong with criticizing a performance or album or artist. However, you do seem to be stuck in a box, musically, and that is fine. SG is your thing. I would highly recommend, though, that you do not criticize a genre you know very little about (as you have noted). Stick with NQC and all the little politically pushed award shows within the SG genre.
The Doves aren’t your game, and neither are they to the majority of your readers.
