From today’s Times (thanks Magnus):

“According to the experts on The Times arts staff, there are now so many distinct types of music that different factions tend to do their own thing and ignore each other. The only way in which they can be analysed is in terms not of high theory or big new ideas, but introspective in-faction rivalry combined with a common, but ultimately futile, contempt for the bland but skilfully manufactured music (Pop Idol etc) that has dominated the charts since the mid-1990s. And that, in a nutshell, is an apt analogy for the Tories themselves and how they see new Labour.”
