Re: How come pop music never comes up here?

I wouldn't even say it's to cover bad musicianship. I think the amount
of polish that goes into modern rock and roll is so ubiquitous that
listeners expect bands to play songs with inhuman precision, and no
variation. Anything less than that is considered a "bad take"!

Personally I enjoy hearing the occasional subtle screwups.

Right, so in the 1980's someone decided that metronomic was
accurate and correct, and anything else, even if it added
a certain charm, was essentially a mistake, or at least inaccurate.

Anyone know why that caught on?
