What am I missing, /mu/? It doesn't sound dreamy or anything, it just sounds like a lot of noise
OP here. Listening to it now, maybe saying it sounds like "a lot of noise" is inaccurate. I think I just bought too much into the hype before listening; people were talking as if it was some super immersive and dreamy album that totally encapsulates you in sound, and it just doesn't sound like that to me. I don't know if I'm just not diving deep enough into it or what, but I'll give it a few more listens in the next week or so before completely writing it off
If you've only just started listening to it now, it might take a few times for your brain to work out what the fucks going on. You'll start to break it out into separate layers and it should make sense. Or you might just not like it idk
Its stunning chaos can be viewed both as an enraptured "om" to the universe or as a deranged scream in a madman's cell or as a terrified paralysis in the face of a supernatural force. The album changed the meaning of the word "music" by proving the equivalence between "noisy" and 'symphonic", the same way that Einstein proved the equivalence between inertial and gravitational mass.
Listen to Isn't Anything and then listen to Loveless. Isn't Anything is so much better. Dreamier, more accessible and immediate. I also really love their EPs. I've listened to Loveless countless times and some songs are gorgeous and striking, but I find that record to be unremarkable as a whole.
When I smoke I just can't listen to music, it's not that it makes music sound bad but I can never find a song that fits right if that makes any sense. But on 500 ug of acid listening to anything is a religious experience, got completely lost in Tago Mago last time I tripped and it was fucking amazing
It's making fun of Russians always asking for proofs whenever people talk about all the shit they do. Rooster is a derogatory term for them so it's good for pissing them off.
