"That’s the Grandmaster in the back. He doesn’t speak much English. He was number one in China back in 1980, so I knew of his name long before I met him. He’s very humble. A true gentleman fighter.

The difference between “Protest the Hero” and “Lorde”

(according to Pandora)

Lorde: synth rock arranging, electronica influences, mild rhythmic syncopation, synthetic sonority, major key tonality, a vocal-centric aesthetic, prominent use of synth, prominent percussion, vocal harmonies

PTH: hard rock roots, great musicianship, heavy use of vocal harmonies, varying tempo and time signatures, intricate melodic phrasing, demanding instrumental part writing, paired vocal harmony, thru composed melodic style, minor key tonality, dirty electric guitar riffs, an aggressive male vocalist, prominent drums, sad lyrics, use of odd meter

Notice the location of “great musicianship”….
