Yes, but looking back they weren't always right.
It's quite fascinating that the decade that has unearthed the most interesting music on this site is a thread dedicated to the 60s.

Yes, I think the 00s should be defined by a female artist but for overall talent and some lasting influence it should probably be Amy rather than Britney.

The song wasn't a big hit on first release but the Bocelli-Brightman version has turned out to be a huge seller. It's just a great song and has a lyric which is appropriate for certain big occasions.

One Direction had the 3rd and 4th best selling albums in the world last year. Hardly a sign of decline? Indeed, it's a good thing for British music in general they are around.
