ITT: God-tier albums that /mu/ never talks about
is that supposed to be Lemon Jelly?
/mu/ knows about Bonobo man
Their new single is fucking great too.
This is kinda like Xiu Xiu, only better and you don't want to kill yourself afterwards
i cant decide if i like john. its so emotional, and get hit me hard at times, but other times he sounds shallow and dumb
I love OP's album but haven't delved much further into JF's catalog. Heard Niandra, Curtains and Smile but none of them made my chart.
yeah, John is a talented lyricist but doesn't really seem to self-edit so well. There's some really beautiful lines on that record though.

The amount of discussion about Sun Kil Moon was surprisingly low until Benji. They were occasionally mentioned but Benji got them a lot of exposure here.
I love John Frusciante, surprised he isn't posted here more.
why did they have to disband ;_;
If you're looking to get into JF, The Empyrean is GOAT. It's a much, much more polished sound, and is probably my personal favorite album of all time. Shadows Collide With People is where he started to polish up his records a bit more and I guess "self-edit." I would try one of those records if you want to get into his more polished stuff.
love rp boo but this has gotta be my favorite footwork album, also way less talked about than some of his other releases
seen these around a bit
This gets a bit in /post-prog/ threads. Pretty good band, but I'm a sucker for that shit.
Pic barely even gets mentioned when SW crops up, when it's clearly his best album
In relation to it never getting mentioned or in relation to it being his best album?
Because it is anon. I'll give you FOABP may win by a little bit, but it's certainly his best solo record
only album ITT i've actually listened to before
Yeah I would probably still put FOABP and maybe Deadwing over it, but it's just grown on me so much, and not many people talk about how amazing it it. I feel that it's one of the few records that Steven went for a singular mood for the entire piece, so it feels more cohesive. Whereas an album like In Absentia has great songs, but it's fuckin all over the place stylistically
>I feel that it's one of the few records that Steven went for a singular mood for the entire piece, so it feels more cohesive.
I think Signify fits that description quite nicely. Anyway, I get what you're saying about In Absentia but I disagree. I think Stupid Dream and Lightbulb Sun are all over the place stylistically even though IA was an amalgamation of his psych, prog, and new-metal tendencies. I think he pulled it off really well and then mastered it with FOABP.
Deltron 3030, motherfucker. These guys shit on Death Grips
PND1 is great. The sequel was shit-tier but PND1 has some amazing production and melodic hooks. I'm a sucker for well done autotune singing tho. It just sounds really "cool" if you know what I mean, I can't really explain it.
Agree on Signify, but most of the ambient tracks are pretty filler and the songwriting isn't to the same level. Either way yeah FOABP is his peak. I like to think of Insurgentes as another side to that record though, because it's got the same dark themes to it. I wish he had developed that style more rather than going straight into KC-prog
Seriously, why do you plebs not ever talk about this seminal masterpiece of epic rock?
Meh, personal taste and all that, but you can dismiss almost any metal by saying it's 'cheesy.' It works for other genres too, if you take inherent aspects of a genre, and put them on an absolute scale, every genre's aspects (Except for maybe commercial pop) will seem exaggerated and dumb. Here are some examples:
Prog rock: Aimless guitar noodling trying to be as long-winded as possible.
Ambient: Empty soundscapes with no meaning or grounding
Hip-Hop: Sweary poetry with very little 'music.'
Now while all of those things are true on an absolute scale, it's the exaggeration of certain aspects and the ignoring or turning down of others, that makes each genre have its own identity.
I disagree. Except for maybe doom and thrash, on an objective scale of 0 to 10, metal in general lands at around a 7 I think. There's nothing wrong with this, as I explained in my earlier post.
>tfw Manics announce they're playing The Holy Bible in full in December.
I've only ever heard Hi, How Are You?. I really liked Walking The Cow but I can't really say that the rest of it did much for me.
That's a little strange; I typically enjoy lo-fi music with odd lyrics. I'm a huge fan of NMH and have listened to probably 99% of any material they've ever released accidentally or purposefully. This includes their early Monroe House Demos, which aren't "outsider" but have a similar lo-fi nonsensical sound, if a more psychedelic one.
I suppose some of John Frusciante's music could be considered outsider music. I'm sure some of the music I've written could be considered outsider music. Outsider is definitely a grab bag.
So I was disappointed but not surprised that Daniel Johnston didn't really fulfill my expectations. Maybe I just need another listen, or a different album.
One of my best friends had an exhaustive JF phase and made me download all of his albums. I don't regret it at all. The one album I don't have is The Empyrean, though. I'll get right on that.
PBX was so fucking cool. I guess I lied, I've probably listened to 1/3 or 1/2 of JF's releases, but I still don't feel "into him", ya feel?
There's a pretty good noise rock following on /mu/, but it pops up at weird times. Songs About Fucking is great, I've been trying to get into Atomizer too. Steve Albini is alright by me. Downloaded a couple Shellac albums too but I feel kinda ehhhh about them so far.
never did post an album. Here ya go. I do see it posted, but rarely talked about.
It's about time you start appreciating King Missile, /mu/
This album is absolutely god-tier
The Manics (and that album in particular) are one of those bands where if you post a thread about it, a bunch of people pile on about how great they are, but for some reason they're not actually discussed regularly.
If I was in charge of the essentials chart, they'd be on it.
Has anyone here heard this? It's a one-off band called Deconstruction, made by the bassist and lead guitarist of Janes Addiction after they broke up.
great album, Murderers is one of his best tracks
This is amazing, but /mu/ usually just focused on Laughing Stock and Spirit of Eden.
Only seen it once in a sharethread, top lo-fi psych rock
No its a different robert ashley, I made the same mistake too when i first started listening to this one. RA from GFW makes music under a diff name I think, and this one is an avant-garde and spoken word composer
though RA (GFW)'s own podcast is god tier - a life well wasted
Really, anything in his discography. He's one of my favorite rappers.
Mew doesn't get nearly as much love as they deserve here.
I have never seen this album discussed here. shame too since it's pretty damn good
pretty much any Songs: Ohia album. the only one sometimes talked about is Magnolia Electric Co.
