Macklemore won because the Grammy's are a popularity contest. More people like and/or know about Macklemore than Kendrick. It has nothing to do with the quality of the music.

problem with this album (reason why its no where near a classic) is he has nothing noteworthy or new

to say, its all how he says it.

I disagree with that^. Killer Mike is mainly about his message. Willie Burke Sherwood,

Anywhere but Here, Reagan, Untitled on his last album alone all had original and deep messages.

"if its a popularity contest then why did lorde and kascey mustgraves (is that even her name) beat out taylor swift"



if it's not a popularity contest then why does the biggest new thing from the year always win? and why don't they ever include artists that aren't chart toppers?

It would be pretty fucking funny to see albums like Sunbather winning Album of The Year.

@aircycle why do you say that? what albums are deserving of a Grammy in you opinion?

I mean the whole system is messed up but the way it is now it's like



The artists that win grammys have songs that are loved by millions and millions of people which, whether you think the songs are garbage or not, is pretty incredible. Sure you could say that the majority of people have bad taste or just don't know what they're missing by only listening to the radio or whatever but the fact is that these songs connected with millions of people and Sunbather won't ever be able to claim that.



but the whole industry is weird because you're either extremely mega popular and part of the music money machine or you're in the "underground" and there's not much overlap



i mean if everyone was as nerdy about music as we are then yeah sunbather gets a grammy

I don't think Sunbather is necessarily deserving of a Grammy, and I pretty much completely agree with you. It just simply wouldn't happen, the people don't devour it like we do

"making a song dissing reagan in 2012 is very original" lol ok maybe not reagan



"The artists that win grammys have songs that are loved by millions and millions of people which,

whether you think the songs are garbage or not, is pretty incredible. "



Virtually no one "loves" this type of music, (in fact you can argue the type of people that 'love'

pop music are only in love with themselves) the extent of their love is measured by paying a dollar

for a song - and most people just do this to avoid virus' rather than to appreciate the artist.



Sales has no relationship to quality of music in todays jellyfish culture. You may as well be asking

sheep to choose whats for dinner, it doesn't matter, they just eat whatever is in front of them

first and the rest mindlessly follow the herd.

that's a pretty elitist point of view



just because people don't care enough about music to spend as much time as we do reading reviews and

looking for new music doesn't mean they don't enjoy it even if their enjoyment is more "shallow"

than mine. I mean on some days I agree with what you're saying and I don't give a shit about the

Grammys but come on man



"(in fact you can argue the type of people that 'love'

pop music are only in love with themselves)"



i would like to see you argue that

The problem with this argument is that its all in terms of scale. Everything that Killer Mike said on R.A.P. Music has been said before too, at least thematically. Just like in movies with Best Picture, The Kings Speech won, but we've all seen this type of underdog movie before. The way the movie is done and the elements around the story are what make it great. Not necessarily the story and theme itself.
