Post an album you believe to be flawless.

Then, respond to others' albums with flaws that they have.

Ideally, be specific with flaws to facilitate discussion. For example:
>too much filler
Try giving specific filler tracks.
>sounds obnoxious
What about it is obnoxious?
>too memey
Kill yourself.

A lot of the songs on that album have too many instruments and the timbres are often pretty shitty (notably banjo and wind). Also so many of the instrumental sections are unnecessary.
>>
>>52639647
I actually fucking love this album so this pains me
a few tracks (Let's Hear that String Part Again..., A Conjunction of Drones..., One Last "Whoo-Hoo!"...) seem kind of unnecessary in the context of the album
but I don't know anything so

I love this album, its great and its now /mu/core.

Personally I don't think it contains some of the same vibes as Michigan did. I also am an oddball and I think that CPD is an ok song but Romulus is better and more emotional.
>>
>>52639647
Should have ended with a different song.
Very underwhelming compared to his other albums and EPs
>Michigan: Vitos ordination song

even
Sisyphus: Alcohol

All have memorable enders except for Illinois

>>52639692

IDK, I think they mesh wonderfully. It's like a chamber orchestra.

I think they're wonderful interludes similar to in Sinatra.

Eh, they're so short I don't think they're an issue.

Everyone who says the short instrumental tracks on Illinois are filler would probably not notice if they were merged with the album's songs. This happens on Chicago, for instance. Single exception is Rock River Valley.

>>52640004
It's been a while since I've listened to this, but I think I wanted a bit more development out of the tracks. I think it settles into patterns a lot and, while they're captivating, they don't evolve a lot.

But again, maybe I'm full of shit because it has been so long.

>>52640405
oooohh I dunno about this one. Only thing I can think is his voice might be a turn off, at least at first. As for Spiderland, I don't really feel like the bass tone is that bad. Much worse on Tweez. Feel like it blends into the background solely to create mood. Didn't even notice it much on my first couple listens. As for the delivery, I can see, but I'm a sucker for that kinda shit as long as it's not super contrived.

Eh, I feel that there often isn't enough substance in the ambiance. In Geogaddi, I can appreciate the dark atmosphere being set as well as the much darker effects as in Gyroscope. I don't feel like MHTR has as many of those special moments.

the fact its lazy drone and nothing intelligent happens for the full album

it's like F#A# but even less creative

I'm convinced you had to have listened to the album in the background.

F#A# was a LOT less developmental and interesting.

more fool me doesn't belong at all and I think the battle of epping forest is just too ridiculous. I like genesis theatrics but that song was just stupid imo. you should have posted foxtrot or lamb
>>
>>52641577

or maybe I listened to the whole thing and thought it was very uncreative and that F#A# was more stagnant but overall at least filled its time slot with listenable material
>>
>>52641917
Calling LYSF a "lazy drone" is an incredibly inaccurate critique. You can call it formulaic perhaps, but not a drone.
LYSF was also a lot more listenable-y interesting.
>>
>>52639840
This album always felt like a mixed bag for me.

I fucking love A life of Possibilities, Memory Machine, Gyroscope and Girl O'Clock. Genuinely catchy and interesting songs.

Apart from those 4 though, nothing really stands out. I don't dislike any of the other songs but they just don't grab me as much.
>>
>>52641917
honestly f#a# is the only godspeed album I like very much. lysf just bores me, it has some nice bits but too much nothing happening. f#a# on the other hand is super creative and unique, everything on it seems to fit just right to me. used to listen to that album every day when I got home from 10th grade, magic

I love FR and this album in particular. I'm not quite familiar enough to give you flaws off the the top of my head, I just wanted to say something.

the only thing I can give you is the old "Trucker's Atlas goes on for too long" and I still believe that but obviously a lot of people don't.
>>
>>52642232
Eh, Optimistic in general kind of ruins the flow of the album.
>>52642275
Kid A's "hidden track" (I mean, Amazon actually has it labeled as an Untitled track) is actually very necessary.

>>52642191
I'll admit that Long distance isn't my favorite song, but I think it helps with the flow of the album. The songs become slower and filled with melancholy after Cowboy Dan, Long Distance Drunk is the last of those songs before it explodes into Shit Luck.

The argument that Trucker's Atlas goes on to long is pretty valid, but I think it fits with theme of that song and the album in general without killing the flow of the album as a whole.
>>
>>52642404
i figure that hidden tracks with big gaps are a way for the band to reach the 45 minute 'full album' length because they didn't actually have enough material to fill up 45 minutes and they were contractually obligated to produce a 45 minute album. Maybe not, tho

The second half of Raw Power is plain forgettable. The titular power becomes gimmicky after the first couple tracks.

Second half is pretty weak and the production values work very well for it... for the first half. It just gets too much after a point. Needed variety, which is funny considering the producer.

Tomorrow you betray again, that's how the World Turns.. one day you love Ruby the next day you want to insert your finger in his ass.

So I have been dealing the same with the Artists for a long time! .. I almost miss Nina Persson again.

Why? Because you don't let me go, they wanna keep watching me under severe circumstances and even worst... laughing in the street because I have 800 Million in L.A and I cannot reach the place.

Maybe I can, if this Land wasn't so fucking cursed and done.

So what? Crucifixion? My God... you're still in the 0 year don't you? when you remember Christ and the Idea you have of him... because you cannot have him inside and follow and pray to someone who boosts you with Gold and Food, it's not my Father you pray to... and if it's not God it's the Devil.

And you don't follow my Plans either, you just try to bring your shit on the Catpcha as well.

It's literally everyone's second favorite Radiohead album, behind either OK Computer (dedicated fans), Kid A (/mu/tants), Pablo Honey (blame Creep for this), The Bends (rock diehards), or Amnesiac (for /mu/'s contrarians).

Beautiful Way gets a little old, sometimes. But that's really the only flaw I hear.

I honestly have never been able to come up with one. At what it does, it is flawless.
>>52644130
I don't think that "being a 2nd favorite" is a flaw.
>>
>>52643979
the songs all seem very half assed and boring. even songs like all i need which are supposed to have some sort of build up come across as droll and non-progressive. the album gets off to a strong start only to peter out with the last track being essentially thom yorke's drivel layered over a piano loop for a few minutes. radiohead's laziest release second only to the king of limbs, overall 4/10

this is my actual opinion btw. i don't understand all the hype for amnesiac, in rainbows or the king of limbs. all their other albums (minus pablo honey which i've not heard) seem much more inspired, energetic and creative to me.
>>
>>52644091
how can anyone think this is flawless??? it's soooo boring, literally there are no good songs on that album except for Famous Friend

>>52644223
Really? In Rainbows' songs are pretty fucking captivating. They are fantastic tunes, very catchy, with nary a note out of place. And all the while they manage to add wonderful edges like the counterpoint of Weird Fishes or the shifting lilt in Faust Arp.

I think that song is great, obviously, but I actually can't believe somebody could like that song over all of the fucking amazing tracks such as Call Out, Beach Community, or Constant Headache. That album was captivating for me from the very beginning, quite the opposite of boring. I guess I can respect your opinion, but I can't say I understand it even a little bit.

Pretty close, but I believe some more elements could have been incorporated, like in the previous two albums. IIRC some of the songs even had piano parts that went unplayed.

>>52641138
It has nice tracks, but some like Drunk Girls just seem uninspired, and really shitty.
>>52642498
The second half of IV. Mount Eerie is shit, and I don't really like how it ends. He could have incorporated much more, but still easily almost perfect.
>>52644352
It feels weak at times, and bland as there is more focus on the lyrics than the actual music. Still a really nice, emotional piece of dream pop.
>>52644384
Some tracks drag on, but that's more of a patience thing for me. A very great album, with a mood unmatched by any album I've heard.

well we are kinda opposite then haha i've listened to it like 5 times, didn't remember a single song except for Famous Friend

The melodies are really well hidden in some of the tracks, usually over the noise, yeah. It's a lot to take in, not knowing where it's gonna turn next, but after getting used to them and recognizing the synthline in the background and where the music will flow to next I found myself humming it while not listening.
I find the melodies themselves quite unique, especially considering what equipment they had and what stage they were at (here's an midi of one of my favorite parts, http://a.pomf.se/bbevka.mid). The production was a little off, which did lead to some inconsistencies.
>>
>>52644666
That's why it sounds noisy to you.
If you get older the sound gets clearer, they made it that way, with tones younger can hear but older people cannot. I'm 22 with shit hearing thanks to concerts, parties whatever, sounds clear to me.

>>52644035

>>
>>52644526
just goes downhill after penny dreadfuls. hurts too much to listen through in one sitting. all the melodies start to sound the same when they are all threaded through the same painfully abrasive effects pedal. the album in itself is a great concept - that is, a foggy nostalgic callback to childhood through adult glasses or what have you - but not every individual track is strong enough to make the record continually exciting IMO
>>
>>52644526
while I do absolutely LOVE the atmosphere on this album and think it has many great songs, other songs I don't are that great.

That's only the first track, though. The rest of the noise was intentional and is pretty clear to any age.

Fair enough, especially considering much of the tracks seem drawn out. It took me individual listens to each track to value them as a whole.

>>52644760
Huh, normally Penny Dreadfuls is one of the most appreciated for their melody, La Rapet is normally considered the unmelodic one. Each to their own, but once again you really have to pay attention.

Bear ruins the flow of the album, the weird noise section at the end of Epilogue are unnecessary. In the only instance I can think of, it would have benefited from a few minutes of silence between Wake and Epilogue.
>>52644373
Awkward pacing, TINF and WWLTSOITS seem like filler. I don't like the ending of Earthmover, they should have gone out with the sludgy style they used on the second verse. The drop feels self-indulgent and goes on too long.

I just think the song is too simple for its running time, i really noticed it when i got the sheet music. The same verse melody is pairred up with the same chorus for a very long time, and Yes, I do really enjoy his vocals on it, the climactic-ish ending, i just feel like it does not have enough variation that is necessary.
Also that zipper sound at the end is just too out there imo
