post your unpopular (or "contrarian") choice for a band's best album
Everyone can meme Bleach and call me a pleb as much as they want, this is still one of the best produced rock albums ever made
The sun came up
The sun came out
The sun did us in
The sun came out and tore us up
It ripped the shit out of our behinds
I think most people seem to prefer them for their sinister undertones but TCH with its washed out production makes me feel unlike any other album I know. It's as though I'm taken away to some other place where I don't have to care about anything.
I don't get why people hate this album,
I could get if people who don't like ambient hate it, but BOC fans calling it boring doesn't make sense to me.
Yeah it is dry and cold but why is that a bad thing? It has a great atmosphere
I was joking ofc
he's usually right though
anyway I didn't like Slow Riot much even before reading his review, f#a#oo is the only one I really get excited about - yanqui and skinny fists are too slow and drab honestly
I feel like tch, mhtrtc, and geogaddi have all been my favorite at one time. it really depends on my mood.
I don't remember anyone hating it, I certainly don't. I just don't feel it's on the same level as the other three. someone said it was boards of canada copying people copying them, and that kinda stuck.
I could see that, I love the album but let's be honest, it's not anything untouchable for others to do like the prior three albums seem to be. Luckily, I wasn't around for the hype, I got into BOC kinda late, like a little after th released.
I love this fake "i sold my soul to the devil" shit.
not a contrarian and not correct
Respectable opinion, but I disagree.
For BOTH of 'em.
WAYYYY better than their first album. I didn't think the Avalanches could top it, but they did.
This is the best pop album ever made.
>talking about the second to last track
I just checked and turns out I accidentally listened to that whole album in alphabetical order by mistake
still a shit album
this is their best album though
nope, In Utero
I can't stand this compared to other BoC for some reason.
Discipline and LTIA are best but Lizard is a good choice too
nah. Saucerful or AHM. Or Live in Paris
good album but doesn't really count desu senpai
Every song is literally perfect and perfectly placed.
While not my favorite (that title belongs to Frances) this album is mad underrated and is easily my second favorite TMV release.
Not even sure if /mu/ has even heard Cabaret Voltaire. Never seen them mentioned here.
Best in terms of themes and atmosphere, but lacks standout tracks compared to their other albums. Though there are some great ones towards the end.
I only like the first two tracks, I don't like witch house — but Crystal Castles probably did somehing right considering how no one can agree on what their best albums are. (I think their second one wins by far.)
Same. The only thing I don't like about this album is how abrupt the ending is.
Those are certainly uncommon opinions.
