    Over the last number of years, guitars have become less and less featured in the pop music scene, to the point where many recent bands/acts don’t have them. It’s a sad evolution, but it’s also been reversing course in the past year or so. Hopefully that’s a a lasting trend.

              • Lots a good ones already listed. I've been burned out on "classic" rock for a while now, but I'm always in a good mood when Head East's "Never Been Any Reason" comes on.

                            Beautiful version, but for me there can be only one.

                            So many Carmens have beautiful performances, but Conchita Supervia is the only Carmen I have ever heard who men would kill or die for. That's the teasing and barely controlled erotic and flat out idiotic sexuality that role demands.

                            And unlike every other Carmen I have seen, I'd run through a wall to be with the real life singer.

                              Conchita's Habenera is absolutely breathtaking but Price's overall performance was so vividly mesmerizing I will never forget where I was the first time I heard it.

                              I'd also recommend Elina Garanca if you haven't yet had the pleasure.

                                I have. I don't particularly like the "I am woman hear me roar!" Carmens that have accompanied the general Creeping Meatballism since the rot set in in the 60s. Garanca is fine, but you wouldn't want to slap and tickle with her just hearing her (granted, then you look at a picture and that changes...). But she's like a TED talk's idea of what Carmen should be. It's an ad for whiskey during the Masters. Nobody dies for a CEO.

                                I'll give her this: her acting is spectacular! Her charisma is pure sex. But it's in her body language and her eyes, not in her voice. The role is too big for her, because the roles of strong women written before women were free are, ironically, too big for free women. It's the democratic paradox: the roles of democratic heroes from the 18th and 19th centuries just can't be carried by actual bland democratic peoples. They require the angst of striving, or something. The actual real being is too self-assured to capture the fear and the risk. Maybe the only great artists after liberation are those who were abused.
