My last post got me thinking

how strong a year was 1971, in terms of music, compared to other years (based on information at

it looks like, based on my back of the envelope calculation that there are only a few stronger years: 1969, 1970, 1972, and 1977 come to mind...

and whats interesting is that the results on back up what i've always thought.. 1994 was a tremendous year for music.. i lived it.. i remember it and its true.. 1994 WAS the year.. it looks like it was a better year than any going back to 1979! time will tell if the music from 1994 holds up as well over time as the music from other years..

in fact one could argue there have been three golden spells for music: Golden Period I- Classic Rock: 1968-1972, Golden Period II- Punk 1977-1979, and Golden Period III- Alternative 1994.... and 1994 seems to have been a bit of an anomaly although 1995 was strong too... since 1995 however things have been rough...and i think the music coming out supports that...

at some point i'm going to do a more in dept statistical analysis of this to see if this is really true...
