Can you be unbiased, when talk about your favourite singers / groups ?
Do you blindly love all their songs / albums ?
Can you say, that something from their music material wasn't good or even was shit ?
Do you love any songs, only because it was singing by your favs ?

No.

Heidi Range excepted of course. I am very unbiased when I say she's a cow (in a non literal sense of the word).

I'm quite passionate in my fandom of favourite artists, but I am objective too.

I feel like I'm quite objective even when I ADORE somebody (possibly Delta aside...although there have been singles of hers I've never got into).

I am the Buffy/ Charmed of the site, so I am completely unbiased and objective, going by musical quality or lack of alone, treating esch song as something different.

I feel there are some artists you may hate everything they did just because it's them, so that's not objectivity...

Well that's 'cos they're crap. It's still objective to realise that.

I would say it's not objective personally and it's biased, but there you go.

I can say (from offhand memory) all artists I hate have at least one song I like (well except for Scouting For Girls, they just 100% stink)

Obviously I will be unintentionally biased because my brain has already got a liking for their way of creating music. Secondly, I will probably invest a little more time in getting to know their new music more than say and artist that is new to me onr one I don't like.

Other than that - no.

These are my opinions on my favourite artists recent out put.
Tori Amos hasn't released a great album in 12 years
Manics in arguably 13 years.
New Order - 21 years
Kate Bush - 25 years
The Cure - 22 years

I can say things are awful. I rarely say things are shit. Even if it's by Nickelback.

I probably do love songs because of the first two points above.

I'm unbiased with any artist, I can always admit when an act I like makes a crap song, I can perhaps seem slightly biased towards a certain genre in which I'm praising it a lot (ie. rock/indie) and critical of others, but it's just because I've come to like that style really and I will listen to anything with an open mind.

The exception being Chris Brown, who has still yet to make anything remotely decent to the point I've given up hope.

I think people think I'm more biased than I actually am when it comes to my favourites laugh.gif Sure, I like the majority of a lot of my favourite artists' songs, they're my favourites for a reason, but I can and will say if I'm disappointed at all. As an example, I've never hidden that I found a lot of Justin Bieber's Journals thing pretty rubbish (his name alone kinda carried the tracks for like, a week, in my affections, but I got bored after 10 weeks of samey tracks), and there are certain Lily Allen/Katy Perry/One Direction tracks that I'm not particularly keen on at all.

No

Oh yes laugh.gif

Do you love any songs, only because it was singing by your favs ?

No

Maybe an exception is Kylie but she has bad songs too, but I couldn't say anything wrong about her laugh.gif

Can you be unbiased, when talk about your favourite singers / groups ?

Sometimes. With my favorite bands, no.

Do you blindly love all their songs / albums ?

Nope.


Can you say, that something from their music material wasn't good or even was shit ?

Only if it's really bad!

Do you love any songs, only because it was singing by your favs ?

For some songs by Bastille that's the case!

Other then my obsession with Bastille I'm pretty unbiased, I'd say!

Can you be unbiased, when talk about your favourite singers / groups ?
Yes, but why bother. There's no fun in a balanced opinion or argument when CAPITALS and blind faith are much more fun.

Do you blindly love all their songs / albums ?
Yes, 100000%. If Madonna can make me listen to Incredible without wishing 3 of my 6 senses did not exist (I count DECENCY as a sense, it really ought to be), then I pass this one with an A****.

Can you say, that something from their music material wasn't good or even was shit ?
No. I can say that LESSORS are shit, or that their output is shit or that they have their WIGS/WEAVES/OTHER ASSORTED CHEAP AND NASTY HAIR ACCOUTREMENTS stolen/snatched/burnt/other illegal/degrading activity. I can say this because I know for a fact that their music material is more substantial and valid than any others in the history of the world, universe and any parallel universes where alternate versions of my faves exist, where they are nothing but cheap imitations on my faves (yes, I mean you Walternate).

Do you love any songs, only because it was singing by your favs ?
Yes, of course I do. I love it when a singing is songing by my fave even if it is shit because I can imagine the moral highground, position myself upon it and blast all comers with my laser sharp wit and sense of entitlement as big as Alex Salmond's.

I would say there's no artist that I like the majority of their songs if we take the majority as over 50% of their songs.

I'd say it's around 30% for Tori Amos (out of over 250 songs)
And fewer percentage in all artists.

The highest percentage would probably be Bloc Party as they've had three good albums and one shit one - over 40%.
