Every band has their time in the spotlight where they can do no wrong. Whether it's their first outing or just a chance crossover onto the charts, most bands relish the opportunity of having hits that resonate with a lot of people. However, the momentum from a band's glory years does have an expiration date as years become decades.
Over time, the public tends to get too comfortable with certain acts, which leads them to fade from public view. While they may pop up in the public consciousness every now and again, these bandshardly stand a chance at radio play as the years go on. There are, of course, exceptions though.
As bands grow and mature, they refine their sound and are firing on all cylinders to such an extent that their songwriting gets a second wind. These late-era triumphs can involve everything from the band stepping out of their comfort zone to just making a kick-ass tune that can go toe-to-toe with their classic material. With these tunes, these bands showed us they could bring their A-game no matter what era they're in.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
