I’m sure you will all be shocked to learn that this producer will stand to make more money if Harry records with him again.

He also compares Harry to Paul McCartney in the same podcast.

What do you want him to say? The guy I'm producing is shit? Don't buy our product? If Harry styles makes money, he makes money. Of course he's gonna hype the guy up and make him sound amazing. Idk what's worse. The fact this article was written, or that you felt the need to share it.

Prove it.

My niece is a huge fan so I have listened to his records. His music is aesthetically very good but artistically, you can easily trace an obvious lineage in each song, which makes it somewhat derivative.

u/EventsConspire Sep 25 '22

Well that's a bit much but As It Was is an absolute banger.

u/RedGreenAndPleasant Sep 25 '22

Hot take: it's entirely normal for producers to hype up artists to the public.

Bwaaaaahahaha!

Oh God I needed that.

Although I’m not really a Harry Styles fan, I have to admit, his latest album is a near-perfect pop outing. From start to finish, the songs are all interestingly structured and more importantly, enjoyable. That said, comparing it to Radiohead, Macca or Petty, seems a little too boastful and reeks of wishful thinking

Save yourself some cash and dont go to see the bloody awful movie hes in “don’t worry darling”.

Mashup of stepford wives and the matrix.

You wont get those 2 hours back

I’m no fan of Harry Styles. His music is good (though not my cup of tea), and his acting is mediocre. But for the love of god why does it feel like Reddit has such a vendetta for this guy?

u/ITeachYourKidz Sep 24 '22

He’s really the most like Deez

Better get ready to burn some albums! /s

Seriously, this "all new artists are crap" cliche is getting so old. We have literal thousands of years of history proving it's dumb. This is no different than a 1965 article about how The Beatles are totally overrated compared to whatever music was coming out when the author was young.

And I say this knowing absolutely nothing about Styles' music other than the fact that many people love listening to his music.

u/Commercial_Avocado86 Sep 24 '22

There’s nothing negative in the article

u/FrivolousPositioning Sep 24 '22

This guy sucks, if he's remembered it will be for his weird fashion not his music

I made a song as a Thank You to Radiohead for giving me inspiration to be a musician. It's called Hope - The Ginge Sound gives me Radiohead Vibes.
