Bob Dylan, "Fourth Time Around"
Fleet Foxes, "Lorelai"
There is some significant borrowing taking place here. But Splice Today adopts the position that this kind of borrowing is a bad thing:
There’s something disturbing about listening to a band so enthusiastically celebrate the fact that it has no soul.
I agree with Joey. To the extent that one criticizes more modern generations for their retrospective, rather than prospective artist drive, then they should at least cite an example of true ex nihilo artistry for purposes of comparison. Otherwise, let's leave the "soul", whatever that may be, out of it.
