    let me rephrase that, "one of the best", better? can you sleep better at night now knowing that i didn't put all my energy into saying that its the best in the world, rather correcting it to one of the best? But why wouldn't it be the best in the world? they're all essentially the same thing. you've got the music, you've got the people. there is no "best" and i understand that. its what YOU think is the best. go ahead and nit pick at everything just to put your two cents in, i guess its not cool to express how you feel anymore. sad.

    It absolutely is not cool to express what is on your mind anymore.

    Unless what you are expressing is, of course, telling someone else that they shouldn't be expressing their opinion of EDM.

    Including, apparently, when what is on one's mind is how bad the Sahara lineup is.

    no, no, no, you see, what you guys have done is turn this into some huge topic on how bad EDM is which goes beyond mere expression. but i give up, i've realized that i'm arguing with a gang of downies which goes against what i believe. so, sorry my "mentally handicapped" friends, but i have to go now, it was a nice chat. don't forget bleach is vital for your hydration. oh, and in case you didn't know how to get past the child proof cap, you have to press down and turn counter clockwise. drink up

    So then this happened:
    As genre names go, EDM is about as vague as "indie." While it's useful shorthand for the post-millennial rave movement's superstar DJs and producers, it doesn't give much insight into the stylistic diversity of the music. Its artists may share an affinity for dramatic, wind-up builds and earthquaking drops, but there's still a world of difference between Skrillex's glitched-out mayhem, Diplo's baile-funk bangers, and David Guetta's big-tent trance.

    Then there's Swedish producer Avicii, who essentially makes straight-up house music with an ear for the kind of universal, candy-coated pop melodies that his homeland seems to produce with astonishing ease. More than six months after its official release, his 2011 electro house anthem "Levels" is still gaining momentum as one of EDM's defining singles. Its apex arrives about halfway in when it halts on a beautifully optimistic but fleeting vocal hook. That moment, in which Etta James gets sampled, cut up and transformed into a glittery house diva, lends a life-affirming touch of humanity to the track's mechanical stomp, and it's a major reason why the song has found such a huge audience.

    These moments appear to be something of a specialty for Avicii. His follow-up single, "Silhouettes", is a glistening progressive house number with guest vocals that recapture that all-too-brief endorphin rush on "Levels"-- and this time, those vocals run through the entire song. Lyrically, "Silhouettes" is an up-with-EDM rally cry, but musically, it's closer to the radio-ready dance cuts produced by current Swedish pop icons Robyn and Little Dragon. "We've come a long way since that day," sings guest vocalist Salem Al Fakir, as sparkling synths and pulse-like thumps build to a pupil-enlarging, major-key climax reminiscent of the Field, "and we will never look back." Here, the filter knob twists, evoking the aural sensation of a rapid ascent in altitude, before plunging sharply down a stomach-in-throat drop the size of the Kingda Ka.

    If "Silhouettes" strikes you as more than a little cheesy, you're not wrong. I've sometimes wondered at what point I'm just listening to the modern equivalent of, say, DJ Sammy's "Heaven". But Avicii is one of the few artists from his world whose singles work as well for me in headphones as they do on festival stages, and his knack for balancing pure FM pop hooks with genuinely affecting vocal tracks makes his wide-eyed positivity an easy pill to swallow.

    Wow. Pitchfork has officially lost all credibility (and they only had an ounce of it left because they gave Ravedeath 1972 best new music. But Avicii>>>Tim Hecker obviously).

    Also, the past few pages of this thread are pure gold.
