skipped an archetype like time before last?

That is true about almost all pop and alternative rock genres, with relatively rare exceptions, after 1984 or so. But pop music has usually had a good deal of commercial fluff and puff, in all eras. I admit at least it was less likely to be blatantly horrible in the old days, the 20s through the mid 40s. But rock music (and pop in general as a result) reached its heights in the 60s and early 70s for sure, but that doesn't mean it was all great by any means. The greatest pop artists were late Silents, and Silent is an example of the Artist archetype after all. Jazz is a bit of a different category. I don't especially care for it, but that's just my taste. It definitely has influenced the creativity of many fine pop and new age artists, as well as established an artistic tradition.

You have to look on the fringes of mainstream society for good music today, and New Age is one area where you can find it-- on the fringes of it, and not in the most popular kinds of New Age music.
