Rock ‘music’ is nihilistic and savage

It is not from snobbery that Dalrymple dislikes Western rock ‘music’. As he points out, he likes popular music from many other parts of the world,

most of which strikes me as less intrinsically savage, less nihilistic and uncivilised, more refined in emotion and attitude towards the world, than Anglo-American rock ‘music’.

Popular ‘music’ in the West seems to Dalrymple

the one genre in which sentimentality is not only acceptable, but positively beneficial.
