    One thing that bothers me: Prozak very eloquently asserts that content is more important than form, but he also makes it quite clear that he regards verse/bridge/chorus songwriting as a symptom of decline. It seems that in prozakology, style is not important, except when it is.

    I see. That makes more sense.

    As true as that may be, the tone and vague manner in which that is directed seems more like a cheap shot than something that should appear in a 'respectable' FAQ. Nevertheless, the point remains that the new BM one far exceeds the older one.

    It does, but I thought Prozak was using the term "form" as referring to song structure, i.e. linear form, sonata form, rondo form, etc. What Erik is referring to was, I thought, the term "style" itself. The presentation. It could very well be that "form" is used to denote both.

    Well, it's nice to have you back. :rolleyes:















    :p

    That was exactly my point. How it went from objective points to the sort of inane cheap shots you would find in this forum.

    Form is structure though. :/ It's pretty obvious by their denotations. Aesthetic is different from form.
