My position is not that hard to understand either, but you chaps aren't even trying to.

My position is this: 'well-written' and 'well arranged' are value judgements. There is NO universal concrete method to writing a pop song, or any kind of song; it is all subjective, with varying degree's of individuality involved. The evidence I provide to support this is the range of responses that everyone has had to the idea that they write good music - the body of varied responses is evidence that this is a subjective argument.

You cannot say that because I think they suck, that I'm ignoring that their stuff is "well written" - because me thinking they suck means inherently that I think their stuff is NOT well written. It's just not a valid response on your part; it really just smacks of fanboi-ism, or bending-over-backwards-liberalism.

How on earth you expect me to find the silver lining with a band like Nickelback, I'll never know.
