It's the easiest board to get (you)s so people bait a lot more. You can criticize any band and get 5 people attacking you. Try it, go into any Kanye thread and tell them how you think his music is bad and you will see what I mean.
Another thing is there is no such thing as discovering new music on this board. Every thread is the same albums, every last.fm/RYM thread people listen to the same exact shit. For example shoegaze, EVERY thread is the same albums (Loveless, Souvlaki, Nowhere).. I mean what the fuck there are thousands of bands.
>>61587975 >Anyone else a massive decline in the quality of /mu/ posts? since when? I came back to 4chan in August after several months of abstinence and was shit already, and I can't say for sure that it wasn't shit before.
I have a friend who used to get with mu something like a year or two ago, and he told me mu used to be one of the gayest, most sjw-friendly boards, and actually pretty good for discussion that didnt routinely get derailed by shitflinging. Something of a diamond in the rough or at least anomaly on 4chan.
[Spoiler]I ask you- when they came for the faggots, did any of you speak for them?[/spoiler]
I've been a regular poster on /mu/ since 2011. This board has always been shit, but if you dug deep you could find some gems on /mu/ in share threads and listen threads.
Now there is still plenty of shit, but no gems. I haven't found any new music from this board in a good year. I haven't participated or witnessed any quality or intelligible discussion for a good long while here as well.
Is there even a way to say how their new album sucks? Their old one was way better. Also, they always sucked. Implying classical music gets you girls. Implying popular music is worth a damn. That feel when listening to this band! They express my feelings so well. Lol whining kid, go kill yourself. /mu/ sucks. Anyone else noticing a massive decline in the quality of /mu/ posts? 3x3 indie edition. Metal <> Metal. As if band x would ever y.
the first time I came to this board was the most magical experience of my life idk. I remember a new of Montreal album came out and people were discussing it and actually discussing it and the post an artist's best album threads. I remember zooming it to read the titles and being so excited like... Wow. These people are cool. They know everything.
This board is a lot better when you don't know anything.
>>61587975 Idk from the time I've been here it seems like there's sort of an ebb and flow of cancer, it's never been amazing. i first started frequenting /mu/ in summer 2013 when there was fucking lauren threads everywhere.
>>61587975 I've noticed us too. Maybe it has to do with us getting older, and the better adjusted of us moving on to better things, while those of us who've stayed behind are now left to deal with all this shit. But yeah, it's noticeably bad here lately, I've noticed too.
Once you'll see these typical albums keep coming up (Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavillion, Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp a Butterfly, Neutral Milk Hotel's In An Aeroplane Over The Sea) It tells you that there is no REAL diversity and creative though. People have to go out of their comfort zones so they can challenge the ideas of the modern world of today. I listen to older music because I wanted to discover the origins of sounds, the ideas it expressed at the time, and how it has impacted a generation. A lot of great musicians today take old songs and find ways to create new ones and it's been going on for years but we have to challenge the creative process so people can construct a new product. I like The Velvet Underground because they've set the blue print for a creative rock music formula. I like The Beat Happening because it set the blueprint for recording music with what you've got. I like Steve Reich because you don't have to compose something complicated but make simple loops but make each one different and layer it over (Minimalism). I can go on with bands and ideas but trying to make the point of furthering the artist's construct of thought and ability can make them become leaders. The /mu/ music chart threads helped me further myself from these charts as if it was homework from a university, a library perhaps. People should argue because if we don't, everyone will end up silenced and ideas won't be furthered. Keep the music alive, go to concerts, go to record stores, go to house parties with musicians from the artsy side of the downtown metro area in the cities, go to festivals, create record albums, support local bands, just get out there. Anyways, I'm going to listen to more of Jennifer Herrema's work.
>>61587975 I came back to this board after a long time. I remember this board circa 2009. >no production general >no musician/instrument generals >no classical/jazz generals >no intimidating /daily/ threads with some of the most sophisticated music you'll ever hear >no soundcloud/bandcamp generals
I don't even think last.fm was a thing yet. As I recall, it was mostly about pitchfork and mediafire shares (and memes, of course).
>>61587975 /mu/ has always been in a decline but after 2012 it took a swift nosedive into a shit pile
Mostly because the decent trips left and people from Reddit finding out about /mu/ on Reddit.
Also, reminder that you'll never get to call Kitty Pryde on her personal number again, Dan Barrett will never post here again, artists will never give a shout out to /mu/ again, and /mu/ will dry up and die.
i'm not sure what you guys expect from this thread? it's not like everyone is just gonna go "oh wow! so true! lets all stop shitposting!" uhhh this thread is gonna die n then /mu/ is gonna go back to normal? this is stupid/pointless
>>61590872 Im literally doing it right now and nobody cares. All I want to do all day is talk in depth about either music or films and I never have anybody to talk to in length about those subjects. I'm yet to find a service on the internet where i can without the bullshit. I feel like it shouldnt be so hard to just be able to about music with people but I havent had a good conversation since I was doing Alevels and studied along side a god-like guitarist. Adulthood is actually shite
>>61589255 This type of mentality is awful, nobody should have a superiority complex over a website as awful as 4chan. /r/letstalkmusic can have more discussion in one thread on one topic than this entire board's currently given catalog.
I cannot believe this. This board has a severe problem with underage & musically inept users.
There are people on this board RIGHT NOW who don't think Future uses autotune (see >>61503496). Hell, there are people on this board who think his music's good.
There are people on this board RIGHT NOW who haven't listened to music made before the 1990s. And then there's their opposite, the redditors who were born in the wrong generation and cannot accept artistic merit in any modern music.
There are people on this board RIGHT NOW who aren't old enough to remember what word filters are (see >>61492769 and >>61493015)
>>61592755 >There are people on this board RIGHT NOW who aren't old enough to remember what word filters are these examples are the ones actually blowing me away >I think I've spent enough time here Jesus christ.
One time, within the past year, there was a really fun thread full of memes and shit. It got really huge and everybody had tons of fun in it. The theory that came about after that was that, like how we have containment boards for ponies etc., we should make a regular containment thread for memers. It could function as a sort of /trash/ in that, if someone posts an off-topic thread, didn't check the catalogue, or is memeing without contributing to the community, they get reported, and directed by a kind soul to the containment thread. We probably couldn't get enough people on board with this to get it to work though.
>>61589637 >no production general >no musician/instrument generals >no soundcloud/bandcamp generals We didn't have generals no, we just had regular threads 2009 had classical threads and classical trips
>no intimidating /daily/ threads with some of the most sophisticated music you'll ever hear ahahahahaha
>I don't even think last.fm was a thing yet Except we even had a script made specifically for them back then
>>61590485 >also more tripfag circlejerking, endless /soc/posting and feelsposting Like 70% of the threads on this board at any given time today aren't just as bad
The question is: where does one go after /mu/? I've been searching for years for some kind of universal music board which isn't dominated by hipster culture and people under 20 posting dank memes and the closest I've gotten is Steve Hoffman where the average age is like 40 and they all discuss the latest Stones remasters.
