People have different opinions on this, some people see originality as an essential element in what they listen to and the artists/bands they gravitate to and some prefer standard music. Is it necessary that your music is unique? Or is that attribute overrated?
As for my opinion, I like artists/bands who push the boundaries of music and aren't afraid to try something new, of course that doesn't mean they have to be different for it's own sake mainly that they enjoy making music. I appreciate uniqueness when it's executed well and is refreshing. On the other hand, I don't think uniqueness always equals great either, it depends.
Just curious how others feel about it.
