The Guardian: 50 albums that changed music. I was reading down this suppressing a yawn when suddenly:
19 Mary J Blige
Without this … no R&B/soul divide, which means no TLC, Beyonce, or Ashanti, to name just three.
Um… so what? Damn you Mary J Blige! And then:
26 Stevie Wonder
Without this … no Alicia Keys, no John Legend – contemporary R&B would be empty and lifeless.
“empty and lifeless” — sounds right about where contemporary R&B is at these days, correct me if I’m wrong.
Meh. I’m off to watch some tribute bands videos.

Don’t miss the Led Zepp ones!
I laughed ’til I cried – then I laughed again! :D
Seems like some young journalist with attitude who hasn’t learnt how to get past LISTS…….
Whole thing is (Mary J) Bilge!
Okay, let’s see who “changed” music:
Someone oughta tell yon Guardian scribe that maybe when one “changes music” the operative predicate should be “dirty diaper off, clean diaper on” – not vise-versa. YOW!
For a peculiar experience, play all the videos at once. then you get an idea of how crappy current American radio is.
