I'm not really sure what that means. On one level, of course not, because those cats were a product of their time and place, and thus can't be reproduced here and now (someone writing the "Moonlight Sonata" now, say, would sound pretty stupid and old-fashioned).

But to say there are no composers running around now of equal talent and merit? How would we know? Not like all of us are listening to the latest cutting edge symphonic music...

I just think that some bands get so stuck in their ways with certain formulas that they become boring carbon copies of themselves, or, in the case of C&C, sacrifice catchiness and good songwriting for ridiculous overblown concepts and "epicness."
Thrice didn't become boring carbon copies of themselves. They've definitely evolved... they've just evolved toward a more plodding, more sentimental, and ultimately boring style.

With C&C... they've always had those faults (the entire concept is such hogwash, and their lyrics are puke) but I don't think they sacrifice catchiness for "epicness." They try hard to have both, and sometimes that works, and occasionally it may not. For me they run into trouble when they try to get all sappy and mellow. Then their shit becomes unbearable. Their last album I love... provided that I skip the same 4 to 5 horribly cheesy tracks every single time I put it on.
