At any rate, your refusal to acknowledge talent when it manifests itself in a genre or era (or on an instrument) you personally dislike only makes you sound amateurish, provincial-minded, and musically immature.
And "produced in the 80s" = "bad."
Instead of saying "horribly dated" couldn't you at least be honest enough to say "unfashionable?" That's all you're really saying here, anyway.
Indeed, the fashion policing and taste-making in which you routinely engage is ultimately little more than (1) hubris and (2) a compensation for your inability to offer any actual intelligent analysis of the music.
Oh, the irony.
I'm not the one trumpeting myself as some kind of "historian" or music critic here.
I'm not the one sitting on the sidelines telling accomplished artists how they should be making their music while I produce nothing myself.
Oh well - it's safer than having to put your own music up here for a critique, eh?
At any rate, it's pretty clear that, in your mindset, "pompous" = "a little too sophisticated for Hogan to wrap his brain around."
(But then, most "music" critics probably couldn't play a C Major scale if their lives depended on it, so there's nothing exceptional about you in that regard.)
