That's where I'm coming from. I hate how the word "over-rated" is simply used to describe players someone doesn't like- it's the equivalent of dismissing someone's political points by calling them a neo-con/socialist. The words still have application, but because they've been used so loosely and interchangeably that the definition is blurryAlan_":2wg6wow8 said:what's "better" mean in this context, tho? it's all subjective. that's why I feel terms like "overrated" are inane. everybody has different taste. music isn't a competitive sport.
HOWEVER, I also feel that whole argument of "well, you don't have any right to comment because so-and-so is more successful than you" is weak. Who freaking cares? I have every right to any opinion I might have, and so does anyone else.
This is still far better than the alternative of only a select few having the privilege to voice an opinion or criticism
