This. The last half of their first album is also supremely misanthropic and self-deprecating. But The Monitor is always my go-to album when I just want to scream along with someone who hates themselves just as much as I do.
>>50378149 Love that album, that one and Suffocate for Fuck Sake - Blazing Fires and Helicopters are my go-to "I wish I was dead and want to feel an overwhelming sense of loathing and nothingness" albums
>>50378413 >tfw when the bagpipe solo falls in sync with the driving war drums and the guitars start to crescendo
It sounded like I was having great sex when I was listening to this album. No fucking joke, I was groaning and everything, it was like an other worldly experience. They just took all the negativity in the world, all the pretension, all their own self hatred, every literary reference and civil war allusion, out in the woods, beat the fuck out of it, and then shared a whiskey with it.
God fucking damn
>>50378423 I just finished The Fall, starting on The Plague.
Anon, just fucking roll alright man? We must imagine Anonymous as happy :^)
Hell, I'm not there yet, or I wouldn't be here Just shit. I don't know. I have been on 4chan for a long ass time, and I find myself back here at a time when I am honestly wondering what good is left to be had in this life. Goddam I am digging this album right now though. Fucking right, I needed to be depressed to really appreciate it.
>>50378478 Which one? The Monitor or An Airing of Grievances?
They're both top fucking quality in my opinion. Airing of Grievances is full of literary references and is basically Patrick Stickles recording of his existential crisis. And then more references to Camus and Shakespeare
And The Monitor is just something else.
>tfw you get all patriotic and starry eyed when you listen to A More Perfect Union >tfw you're not even American
I want to drive really fast down the American west with my friends and scream these songs with them. It just feels like such a uniquely American thing to me
>>50378504 Here's something from their new album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9tQQyberII
The Monitor. Yeah, the album really does have that America Fuck Yeah! vibe, despite it kind of mocking our society and how fucked up our (and Stickles') generation is. But that's just him trying more to be just like Springsteen.
Damn dude, thanks, I didn't know there were any good live videos yet.
On The Monitor right now, but I have Airing of Grievances laying around too. I'll revisit it later. I just need to find something to latch on to right now. The one person in my life I would hope to find genuine comfort in will give me nothing but offhand platitudes and bullshit about "the only thing you have control over is how you feel". Fuck that, I have no control, and fuck you. I am miserable and what's worse is the closest I feel to feeling good is feeling my most miserable. I don't know how that works but it's fucking true.
At the end of the day, at least I can enjoy music that wallows in shit with me.
I feel ya, doggie. My old lady and I broke up a week ago after two-and-a-half years and she was always telling me stupid fucking new age feel good sentiment like that. Like it's that easy you can just have something by goddamn wanting it. Fuck that dangerous mentality, that's why we have entitled assholes everywhere.
Yeah, I guess I shouldn't judge so harshly based on the first song off it I hear.
But yeah, it's gonna take some REAL fucking power to top that album. When I saw them last it was the day Obama won his second term, like everyone found out minutes before the show started. So they decided to basically play The Monitor in its entirety, minus like two songs along with new shit and No Future Part 1. It turned into such a wild party they decided to just take away the under-21 gate. Both Pat Stickles and the singer for Ceremony got into the crowd and were going wild.
This. So much hopelessness and denial and hatred in these songs. I believe getting a divorce with a wife you love more than anything and then watch her live with another guy and have kids with him like you never existed is probably the world's worst feel.
