Top 10 Music Genres that Have More Talent Then Pop

In my opinion there are genres that have more talent then top so let's get to it. For this list sub genres will be included.

The Top Ten

1 Classical Classical

Classical and other genres have more talent then pop. However Classical is the genre that has even more talent to it. With Classical it sounds good, not overplayed and without it I'm not sure if music would be relevant. I'm going to be honest I'd rather listen to something from Mozart or Beethoven then something from Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry etc. because Beethoven and Mozart actually put talent into their songs! - BoredJeff02

2 Metal Metal

This genre of music is far from being talentless because you have talent and skill in guitar, bass, Drums and Vocals which in pop only one of those is used Vocals but to me I prefer hearing complex instrumentals rather than just Vocals - christangrant

One of the most talented genres, next to classical. - Brobusky

While I'm not a huge metal head myself, at least Metal has more talent then Pop music when comes to well... anything. - BoredJeff02

Metal is the 2nd most demanding genre after classical but in some areas metal is even harder. A classical vocal coach wrote about metal singers: "There is a visceral dramatic intensity driving this singing. Many metal singers are tenors who sustain much higher, much longer than operatic tenors are ever required to."
Also, Pavarotti's vocal range is 2 octaves, 2-1/2 notes, Whitney Houston's - 2 octaves, 4 notes, Rob Halford's range is over 4 octaves, Mike Patton's - 6 octaves, 1/2 note. - Metal_Treasure
