Imagine a world where artists never changed what they did, or only continued to repeat whatever the "fans" loved the most. Im sure it would be tempting as it would bring them a more secure income.
The Radiohead song My Iron Lung comes to mind right now. "this is our new song / just like the last one / a total waste of time / my iron lung"
Imagine a world where artists never grew themselves as people and only felt the same emotions/ideas over and over again.
I dont want to live in these worlds.
I loved Takk. I loved what came before but I REALLY loved Takk.
But man, I am so happy we have Kveikur cause I also REALLY love Kveikur.
Fortunately, for the people that loved the older stuff - they have that older stuff to listen to.
