Everclear's baseless music

    I,m disturbed by some of Everclear's (and simular groups) seaming baseless songs. The bass has been religated to a nearly nonexistant role. Maybe if I had the CD and adjusted my sound system just right I could hear the bass but on FM radio, I can't.

    The end result, to me, is uninteresting music.

    As far as acoustic basses are concerned, I think they just sound out of place in rock music. Jazz and country is where they sound best.

    Someone is trying to inovate us out of existance.

    I partially agree with this observation....but, sometimes it is best to serve the song and just know the role of a supporting musician.
