Kinda proto-post-rock, but this is close. I still don't think it's as good as Spiderland, however.

it absolutely is. it fits the definition to a t. just because the term post-rock didn't exist in 1971 doesn't mean shit.

Is TBK the first post-post-rock album ever made?
>>
>>47735766
Post-rock is a subgenre of rock music characterized by the influence and use of instruments commonly associated with rock, but using rhythms and "guitars as facilitators of timbre and textures" not traditionally found in rock. Faust. Public Image Ltd. Bardo Pond.
>>
>>47735683
Spiderland sounds like a lot of math rock and post hardcore bands at it's time. The Ascension was way ahead of it's time and it bums me out you people praise Spiderland when even Houdini is a better record.

Spiderland in the end did something that turned out to be way different. Maybe you're just ignorant anon. Also, being ahead of its time isn't the only factor you need to consider when rating which post-rock album is the "best". Also agree with >>47735856

What's the best Cul De Sac record? I only ever listened to china gate and I loved it
>>
>>47735920
Spiderland suffers from the velvet underground syndrome. Which means that for its time, it was novel and influential on many artists to come. However, if we take into consideration all the bands that have not only duplicated it, but also improved upon its blandness (obviously learned in retrospect) we will come to the conclusion that it is incredibly tame and timid when compared to all other post rock records.

I'm sorry buddy but I cant converse with someone who is a fan-boy because you will defend the album no matter what because of your obvious love for it. Its probably you're second week on /mu/ and this is the first album you really like after going through some /mu/core so you claim its genius.

program music 1 is shitty melodramatic third wave post-rock under the pretense of "modern classical" so it appeals to pseudo-deep neckbeards - it's not classical, it's mallglitch on par with hans zimmer in that it panders to fedoras who love "epic" music

a few dizzy digital cuts and bad songwriting masquerading as free-spiritedness can't turn shitty viola synths and done-to-death vi-iii-vii pop progressions into anything worthwhile. it's overproduced and overwrought and it constantly meanders without purpose or intensity. it's not program music in the slightest, it's crescendocore with "glitches"

Perhaps not everyone who likes music you don't like falls under this miniscule category? Perhaps even the music itself has no intention of being "psuedo" anything, and is simply experimentation and an attempt at art. You seem to think the guy just sat down at his computer one day and said "Yeah, these dumb shits will eat this up". I'm sorry for you.

>>47738467
In any case, my intentions are clear.
I dislike but find amusing certain individuals need to hate on people for "liking what I don't like", like it's oh so trendy and edgy to dislike what is popular.

While you're talking about word use.
Now it would be an assumption to say that me using poor word choice is a way of ignoring my actual claim. That's poor logic. I hope youre not doing that.

Either way, I don't know shit about you; maybe you even agree with me !? maybe not. Regardless, have a nice night.

Nah the actual claim was pretty spot-on because post-rock is bogged down with countless shitty bands and albums

Why the fuck would you say Kveikur? It's their LEAST post-rockish record, save for perhaps Med Sud. Try ( ) or Agætis Byrjun and you might actually sound like you're slightly intelligent, and not a colossal buffoon.

>>47736088
What the hell is wrong with you. Look, I like Valtari. It's fun, and light-hearted. It's the type of record that's perfect for a breezy summer afternoon, coupled with a glass of wine. It sits contentedly in the background of a contemplative musing of the banal, wishing to be nothing more or less than what it is. It delivers a pleasant finish, as it were, with the final stretches of Fjögur píanó fading into nothing. But hey, it's really no more than a 7/10. It's not extraordinary, and it really isn't held together by any one theme. It's more of a collage of various emotions and moods thrown hastily together in a veritable hodgepodge of uncertainty. So, it doesn't really matter if you "love it," it matters if you consider it the epitome of the genre, and no matter how you look at it, Valtari just isn't that. Ever.

I do like it, though.

I don't need to, all there needs to be is mutual intelligibility with the term

which there is

>>47742160
>but everyone knows what is meant by "repetitive"
Not really, if you listen to a repetitive album five times it's going to still sound repetitive. Shocker, I know.
> trying to argue semantics with me isn't going to help you.
You likely don't actually know what you're saying and are just parroting others who have failed to argue their points to me in the past, but I'll humor you.
When you misuse language you misrepresent reality ; why would I respond traditionally to something which does not reflect the reality of a situation ?

>too many of their songs don't have enough progression
Missing the point again, as you were when you first tried to bring up repetition. "Enough" progression will always be relative to the piece and the context of the piece. "Progression" is also a very shaky term to use, as it could refer to the manipulation of the sounds and their sequences, the composition, anything.

>that last song which goes on and on but never really goes anywhere.
I suspected that you weren't actually listening to the music with any real focus, and this pretty much confirmed that, so thanks I guess.

mutual intelligibility makes it a real word not a real genre

if you cant define the genre it is not a genre this is pretty fucking simple
>>
>>47742252
>mutual intelligibility makes it a real word not a real genre
...and what makes something a TRU- erm, "real" genre ?
>if you cant define the genre it is not a genre
because you say so, right ?
>>
>>47742287
are you mentally retarded

how the fuck is krautrock a genre

krautrock means "music made in germany in the 70s that fits in to electronic (one of the most poorly defined genres in music) and rock (one of the largest genres in music)"

genres dont get defined by time and place they get defined by sound and style you fucking idiot

What genre is Loveless?
>>
>>47742586
don't make the autist come back
>>
>>47742586
loveless is shoegaze which is a genre with clear stylistic quirks such as using the voice of the singer for aesthetic quality instead of for delivery of words and using a lot of distortion to obscure melody

>>
>>47742241
no shit, if I find it repetitive on the 10th listen thens its still going to sound repetitive on the 11th. the album is fundamentally repetitive. so many ideas are just reused on each song and the songs just meander along then end without any sense of conclusion. I actually loved that album on my first listen but I guess the very best albums -- especially my favourites -- are not instant likes. In addition I think they album, even the band, relies on too many cliches in the genre. whether there is a well-defined understanding of what post-rock is is irrelevant here, point is the band isn't all that much different from other third wave post rock bands like EITS. I've actually yet to hear a third wave album that i actually and that is not because i'm dismissive of them
>>
>>47742606
Nah, m8. Shoegazing was a scene, just like krautrock. If you're going to call shoegaze a genre then you should at least admit krautrock is too
>>
>>47742627
something can be a scene and a genre (another example of this is ukg)

krautrock has no distinct style but shoegaze does
>>
>>47742626
>so many ideas are just reused on each song
[the point]

>relies on too many cliches in the genre
>other third wave
If you weren't so damned ignorant you'd know that DMST were one of the second-wave bands who systematized the "post-rock sound" that the third wave tries to emulate, thus creating what you perceive to be them "relying on cliches".

As it is, you're digging yourself a deeper ethos-hole with every post you make.

[your fucking faggot-ass head]

>>47742649
>Psych rock mixed with prog and noise
>Not a distinct style
>>
>>47740752
agreed
>>
>>47742689
except krautrock contains a lot of other stuff

kraftwerk falls under it
>>
>>47742689
Tangerine Dream
you're approaching the problem the wrong way. he's looking for something aesthetically defined, which not all genres are. such as krautrock.
>>
>>47742649
>Shoegaze does

Not really, especially in comparison to krautrock.

>>47742606
>using the voice of the singer for aesthetic quality instead of for delivery of words and using a lot of distortion to obscure melody

That describes a large chunk of neo-psychedelia.

And black metal.
>>
>>47742730
but black metal and neo psychedelia have their own definitions, obviously theres a lot of crossover between any two genres

the difference between krautrock and shoegaze is that you can hear any shoegaze song and know its shoegaze but the only krautrock songs that sound like krautrock are faust and can style stuff which is a tiny fraction of krautrock
>>
am I gonna have to wait 45 minutes watching spergs poorly argue until that fuckstick responds again
>>
>>47742750
>You can hear any shoegaze song and know its shoegaze

I didn't know Ride and Slowdive were shoegaze till I came here.

It's just a scene of neo-psych with its own twists, just krautrock was its own scene of psych rock with its own twists.
>>
>>47742680
the point is that you can't give my one good reason why this album should be deserving of the title "best post-rock album" other than making short snidey, edgy comments like "[the point]" to discredit my argument. even if they did influence the third wave, i think EITS emulated and even surpassed DMST.

if you are going to post an album that isn't often regarded as a "good" post-rock album then you better back it up with something good. I can see why other albums are worthy of being considered best but here i just don't see it.
>>
>>47742769
im not sitting at my computer constantly waiting for anyone to respond to me. if you think i take ~45 minutes thinking for something to say then you must be the "sperg" for being so riled up that you wait intently to respond with some generic /mu/ comment then proceed to make a generic insult. you really are the epitome of another throwaway trip that pops up everyone once in a while
>>
>>47743167
woah buddy, but a halt to that neg, bro.

can't we all just agree the obvious answer to the best post rock album is Rocky Point Dr E, Tampa, FL
>>
>>47740752
It's this honestly, accept it and move on
