Some for me are when they do an uplifting key change at the end (a phenomenon which has existed for decades,) when they use too much tape wear effect to make it purposefully warbly for no good reason, when they lower the pitch of a singer’s voice by an octave, and when the song just ends with no finality like the tape was cut (unless it’s part of a progressive rock album.)

    Pretty much the entire discography of Imagine Dragons. No offense to the fans or musicians - I can see the appeal, it’s genuinely good music. It is hard to explain, but their signature rythmic melodic and vocal makeup evokes some sort of visceral reaction in me, to the point where I could identify an ImDrag track I’ve never heard before just based on my body’s desire to stop hearing.

    Again, I treat it as more of a tragic circumstance preventing me from enjoying some unique and well -produced music. If you like it and it makes your soul go bop-bop, more power to you!

      If you find it validating, I don’t think their music is very good. I can’t say I have real depth of knowledge on them but they made it to radio plays with Radioactive and then never grew their sound away from that pop.
