Industrial I used to like now sounds like pop to me

That’s just the nostalgia1) kicking in.
Perfectly normal development.
It’s nature’s way of telling you that you are about to spend more time on dealing with hair on body parts where you don’t want any than you’ll spend on dealing with the hair on your head.

1) Which just isn’t what it used to be, either.

Early Ministry sure as hell sounded like pop with fake British accents and everything. It’s actually kind of wonderful in a self aware ironic kind of sense.

Maybe just me, but like Throbbing Gristle, I feel some bands like Big Black manage to escape this phenomenon.

I’m not sure what their shows are like these days, but I saw them in a small music hall back around the days of Fury of the Aquabats! and they were in full superhero regalia with kaiju monsters battling on stage the whole time. They kept tossing mini donuts out to the crowd, and I vividly remember MC Bat Commander doing a standing backflip, landing on both feet, and catching a donut in his mouth during a drum solo. Can Batman do that??!

Not for nothing that when I saw Numan with a buddy of mine a few years ago, my friend dubbed him “Nine-Inch Numan.” It really did sound like mid-nineties NIN.

Ah, that was a fun one back in the day. I did re-listen to “Suck” semi-recently.

Terrible Lie is my favorite track on that album. Live it was incredible.

So did I, in Walmart. It was unnerving. Only matched by hearing a lyric free version of I Know What Boys Like in an elevator.
