Fair enough, I guess. For me, it's one of my 20 favorite albums of all time. It's like listening to a rave going on next door, but you are too anxious and sad to go. Just sit and sip coffee while thinking about your ex instead.
>>61643604 This is a very emotionally powerful record. Hearing a depressive drunk alcoholic guy repeat the Somnambulist In An Ambulance in such an intentionally...pathetic and helpless tone is just...idk it gets to me.
>>61643665 Pretty much. Writing cheese melodies like that doesn't take much skill.
>>61643838 Very atmospheric in an urban manner. If you're up late at night and just wanna take a walk through the city put this on. Certain albums get the more chaotic aspect of urban cities others just the quiet parts; this one does them all.
>>61643853 An album with moments where you have two guitars playing different melodies, bass and bassoon coming in an out, drums being played in a time sig the average person is not used to, and Beefheart's unique more gruffy approach to blues/jazz vocals is somehow boring? Were you not able to pay attention to anything in the album?
>>61643873 Has melodies that are pretty complex by punk standards. Will have sections of music very much so influenced by either shoegaze, post rock, or jazz. Put all that together in a package that's still punk at the end of the day.
>>61643879 >>61643894 >>61643942 Spiderland: Angular guitar riffs similar to math rock, dynamics from soft to loud, vocals range from whispering to screaming to spoken word to just regular singing, has aspects of noise rock/punk in a way like what would become post-hardcore, drums are simple but very VERY tastefully done probably the most underrated part of the band.
>>61643928 I don't like the approach towards really anything in art if they are like "shit lets make something someone will cry about" it feels manipulative as opposed to Slint over here who just wrote songs about personal stuff and imo much more worth crying over especially when you hear like the last part of Good Morning, Captain or something.
