As mentioned numerous times already, the 1960s are the most critically acclaimed decade ever when it comes to music. Or, in other words:
THE SIXTIES ARE THE HOLY GRAIL IN TERMS OF MUSIC QUALITY.
This is the music you need to know if you want to become a great artist, no matter what genre you’re doing nowadays. This is the music you need to compare your own work to, if you want to improve it.
That’s just insane, and those numbers alone clearly show how far we have come with today’s music.
