But the world fell in love with the unique writing stye of DARREN CRISS and how his music and lyrics are downright paradigm changing!
He recorded some songs in a friend’s apartment and put it up on iTunes as an EP with no advertising or studio backing of any sort, and it hit the freaking CHARTS! That’s unprecedented.
He can be like Bob Dillon. Did Bob Dillon have a major studio telling him to write his first album all “broad” and “pop” to “cast a wide net” before he can then (somehow later if anyone is even still listening which they wouldn’t be if the pop album was the same as everyone else’s pop album) put out the kind of album he really wants to make, with his own unique writing style?
Why in the world does he think that his first studio album has to be “casting a wide net” and be all songs that are “broad” to reach a “broad audience???”
Why is he writing so many songs with multiple other people in order to create songs that are NOT in the style that HE writes, but in the pop style that he admires in THEM?????
So his first studio album will be a bunch of pop songs that are NOT his style????
It will be all broad pop songs that everyone in the world will assume were all written by other people and Darren just got to put his name in as one of the writers because he suggested a word change here or there.
Everyone in the world will assume that he doesn’t write songs.
Why can’t he put out an album of the songs that already have an enormous following even though the only recordings we have of them are on the cel phones of people attending his gigs?
Why can’t he write they way HE WRITES and give the world more of the kind of music that we fell in love with Darren Criss songs because his writing style is unique and SO different and a breath of fresh air and a fantastic new artistic voice and so much better than any written-by-committee, cookie-cutter, meaningless “broad” pop songs?
Why does he want to brand himself as just some Glee kid putting out a pop album not written by him and looking like nothing but a popstar wanna-be????
Darren Criss is more like Bob Dillon. New, fresh, artistic, visionary, paradigm-changing.
But the world will never get to see that because his first album will be all Picture Perfect Girl type songs and that’s what he’ll be known for and he’ll be branded as that Glee kid popstar wanna-be and after that he’ll never be taken seriously as an artist.
"Ah, such a majestic sight – an empty concert hall. Nothing like it. The wood, the smell, the seats, the bar – all completely unaware and unbiased toward the crazy shit that goes down every night. I mean, Beyoncé was here a few times … and life just goes on in an empty room". - Darren Criss
Second time meeting Darren, at The Living Room in NYC. I asked if I could get a picture of me giving him a kiss, and he was all, “go for it!” SO sweet.
It’s so sweet! That was back when any fan who asked this kind of thing clearly wanted to show their admiration for him because they loved his music and maybe his Starkid musicals.
These days, he has no way of knowing if anyone asking this kind of thing is doing it just because of his celebrity status and nothing more. So you can’t judge a celebrity for being unwilling to say yes to this kind of thing readily all the time.
It’s so cool to see him able to be 100% cool with fans showing this kind of appreciation back before the celebrity complication because he would know they came to see him because they discovered his artistic output and loved it and wanted to go to a concert of his to hear more of his music.
