Yeah i mean a lot of it didn't change in terms of songwriting but the production changed a lot over the years. I like some of the older stuff but not often.
I guess you lean to more natural sounds. I was listening to TLC's Fanmail today and its completely unnatural sounding and poppy.
You would probably like some of the neo soul shit, to me theres not enough variety but theres a few good ones like amel and saadiq.
