>so desperate for attention that he killed himself because he wasn't famous enough
Why do we like him again?
I don't understand why people like his music so much. The guitar is ok, but nothing special. It all seems really boring to me. I tried listening to Pink Moon, couldn't finish it because I literally fell asleep.
depressed people relate to him because his sort of deadpan and apathetic vocal style combined with the hopelessness of his lyricism reflects what depression feels like
at least i assume that's what it is, personally i've never really been depressed like that so it's all very dull to me
Personally, the thing that makes his music so great is how intimate it is. I feel lile he is sitting across the room, staring into the wall and playing guitar and singing. Plus, he's a great guitar player.
I tried to blow my brains out twice and I still don't get it. I'd much rather listen to "colorful" sad artists like Jeff Buckley (I used to weep like a bitch to his album "Grace"). Drake is just too black and white for me.
>hating on Nick
contrarians need to kill themselves
Epic and quality thread my friends
keep it up
>baiting and false flagging this hard
You know when you first get your guitar and after a month, you think you're good enough so you created these cringeworthy sad folk songs that would make a mime laugh out loud and years later you discover them and destroy them hoping that in due time you'll forget they ever existed.
That's Nick Drake's music!
That's the point. To me, Buckley's music is colorful, and Drake's is black and white. They both made sad music, but Buckley's has more life to it. That's why I like it better. I just don't get Drake's style, it's bland to me.
You know when you read your first /mu/ post and after a month you think you're smart enough so you create these cringeworthy pathetic posts and threads that would make even most redditors laugh out loud and years later you discover them in the archive and shit your pants at how childish they are.
That's you posting on /mu/
I'm not depressed any more and I still like Pink Moon. It just connects with me on an ineffable level. I don't know how you can listen to Parasite or Things Behind the Sun and not be moved emotionally. It has nothing to do with being sad or depressed. The music fills me with a lot of different emotions because of the intimacy of the recording and the sincerity of the songwriting.
Some people on /mu/ like to trash artists like Nick Drake or Kurt Cobain and say that their music is for the edgy and depressed. The fact is everyone alive feels every emotion there is throughout their life. Anyone can connect with their music because everyone experiences the same emotions. I can think suicide is a mistake but I can still listen to Pink Moon or Nirvana Unplugged and empathize with these guys even if I'm not going through the same level of pain as them as I'm listening.
I kind of got off topic there, but someone criticized Nick's guitar playing and it reminded me of how people critique Kurt Cobain the same way. The fact is, people see music differently. To me, the sincerity and emotion behind their melodies is the main show and the guitar playing is just the accompaniment. You don't have to be a virtuoso to make good music
You know, I thought the exact same way you are a year ago. I didn't understand Nick Drake, it was just folk songs. But the more music I listened to, the more I liked Drake. It just clicked and maybe that'll happen to you.
>"me don't like thing now give me attention"
>implying that your shitty opinions matter
Whoaa you don't like his music, good for you man.
