Bowie was an overrated hack more known for his wild appearance than his talent at composing or perfoming. He was a trendhopper who basically ripped off other shit that was going on around him and watered it down for a mainstream audience. His few good albums were collabs with more talented musicians like Eno.

>>61694243
Aphex is better than almost every modern IDM artist
>>
>>61693937
Kendrick Lamar is one of the most boring rappers out right now, whereas Future, Drake & Young Thug are way more entertaining and deserving of the collective dickriding that Kendrick recieves.

Metal for the most part sucks and the people that listen to it as a primary genre (meaning they don't explore much outside of it) are probably neckbeards.

Vaporwave is a meme and should be treated as such

Bowie is overrated, Blackstar was a decent album but not much more than a 3-3.5 out of 5. If he was still alive, there would be maybe one or two Blackstar threads a day until a few weeks go by, now we will never hear the end of it.

Dance music is for normies

Taylor Swift worship is a direct result of waifuism on /mu/ and has opened the floodgates for people who listen to top 40 pop and think it's actually deep or meaningful.

Not sure if it's a contrarian opinion but granted that I think they are still a very good band, I find Radiohead overrated. So like for example people praised Radiohead pulling a DJ Shadow with cutting/mixing the drums on Airbag, but unlike DJ Shadow who makes completely cool new percussion parts like that Airbag still ultimately had generic rock drums it just seems pointless. Also praised in a book I read was the way the bass does the start stop thing in the song like Dub music does, but has no really groovy basis to do that with which would make the music a lot more interesting. Again I think using both concepts was cool from them but they really didn't do next level things with them not making the the greatest band ever that they get the level of praise for being.

Kid A is pretty cool though for bringing back Krautrock in a way despite not pulling the kind of sophisticated electronic stuff that was done by the likes of The Avalanches, Ricardo Villalobos, Aphex, etc. in the very same decade.
>>
>>61693937
Most hip-hop is awful. Even the best hip-hop music is littered with cheesy bullshit, lack of originality and imagination, and cringeworthy cliches. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff in there too, but the genre could be so much more than it is.

From 1968-2001, George Harrison was more talented and objectively BETTER than his bandmates
>>
>>61694243
Somewhat true somewhat nah. If Villalobos is considered IDM then he's definitely better than 99.999999% of the dance music artists that influenced him. If Villalobos is not considered IDM ignore this post (he honestly goes more under Mircohouse I think.)

Despite that I like albums like James Holden's The Inheritors where there's definitely very interesting stuff being done while still having the emotion and danceyness of dance music.

That's not how opinions work. You're stating something that is either objectively true or objectively false, opinions are for subjectivity.

Your argument is completely irrelevant.

If you don't eat you'll die. Your criticism comes in the form of a necessity. There's also very few discerning opinions about cooking unless we're eating delicacies.

Music is completely objective to the expertise of the musician and the listener IF they know the process that preceded the work.

I don't know if my opinions are contrarian or not, because i don't pay attention to other people's opinion, and i'm pretty out of touch with any music scene despite listening to music, new and old non stop.
I guess my opinion on modern music is that it's becoming more intricate, composed in the classical sense, and that's a good thing.
I just hope i can do my part in fueling the next musical revolution
>>
>>61694747
fair enough

but if those artists don't make you roll your eyes with their lack of originality and general corniness i dunno what to say. some of it is so unintelligent it makes me cringe.

I've been here two years, it might not be the longest time, I may have missed both of those general threads. I bet /gaga/ was pure waifuism and /T&S/ may have had some musical discussion, I bet it was probably just like the newer waifu threads where people just talk about feet and how they want to fuck <insert artist name>.
>>61694883
I just never saw anything outstanding in Cudi, I just don't think he's for me.
>>61694890
So basically everything I listened to before I decided to be open minded towards hip hop and give mainstream shit a chance? (Exclusions would be Bones although he's okay, Earl's newest album is decent, but lol if you think that's something considered "grown up", and Kendrick only because he wasn't putting out music when I was 16.)
Literally everything else on there I already have been listening to. I never stated I only listen to modern trap music as far as hip hop is concerned.

I can see why you'd think that about Benji. Mark Kozelek's voice is very polarizing and to many people sounds very dull and just bad in general...

TPAB though, I don't see how you can think it's the worst. Not liking it is fine, but worst thing you've ever heard? That's pretty harsh.

MF DOOM and some Kanye is really the only hip-hop I didn't eventually grow out of and find cringeworthy.

>>61694794
I agree with the basis of your argument but I find that music too blatantly cheesy... I guess I feel the exact same way about most action movies. It's the same reason I can't believe people like WWE.

why? because people like to get high on their own ass over the music they like and not the food or smells or colours they like? is that why?
>>
>>61694555
IDM is pretty much a meaningless term, so it depends on your definition of it. To me, IDM is house/techno intended for home listening, rather than the dance floor. Villalobos might turn off some listener because of his focus on repetition, but still his music is very much rhythm oriented, not to mention that he doesn't really sounds like any of Warp's IDM collection
>>
>>61695178
>I find that music too blatantly cheesy
I used to feel the same way but I got tired of only listening to what people call "real hip hop" and decided to say fuck it and give it a chance again. Something clicked for me, to each their own I guess.

Yeah, it is awful. I think most everyone agrees on that though.

I didn't say TPAB was worse. I said TPAB was one of the worst albums I've heard. At no point did I say that Speedin Bullet was better. Speedin Bullet is worse. My apologies for not explicitly stating that.

in the same boat here. I'm so far removed from what other people think in pop culture and such that my opinions are coming to be more and more my own with each passing year. I'm just a "gamma" spectrum kind of guy, so music is a very personal journey for me.

>To me, IDM is house/techno intended for home listening, rather than the dance floor.
I agree on the dance floor/home listening thing, I don't know enough about electronic genres to say anything about it being house/techno though.

What would some examples? When I think of house and techno, I imagine some European club with people dancing. Am i missing out on a shitload of good stuff (probably)? What would you rec for someone who's into entry level IDM (RDJ's work, Autechre, BoC, Squarepusher)?
>>
>>61696260
You can start by listening to the artist who inspired the aforementioned IDM artists(especially Aphex)
LFO, The Orb, 808 State, KLF
Also if you want to get into techno/house you should look into the original scenes where those genres emerged, Detroid for techno and Chicago for house
69/Carl Craig, Jeff Mills, UR and Robert Hood for techno OGs
Frankie Knuckles, Mr. Fingers, Ce Ce Rogers and Ten City for house OGs

>>61698721
At least there's an ounce of sincerity in their liking for a song- because it sounds good.
People on here will convince themselves otherwise, and say they just have really good taste, but 95% of posters are more concerned about using music as a fashion statement than genuinely enjoying it.
>>61698737
Exactly my point. It's not about what music you do and don't like, it's about what music other people like, and whether they're part of the mainstream or not. Eventually it becomes like the Fibonacci Sequence of Contrarianism. /mu/ likes the album because it's not mainstream, contrarians dislike it because it becomes to popular among other contrarians, and so on.
>>61698751
I'm glad you actually enjoy it, that's good.
>>
>>61694243
Yeah, I agree. After IDM started ripping Jungle/dnb I got a lot less interested in it, was much better when it was an extension of techno and early breakbeat hardcore - post 2001 "IDM" is a travesty. I like Aphex but even he's stronger as a dance producer.

I do think Autechre deserve their acclaim though, maybe I stayed interested in them because they always kept their hip-hop roots.

My Little Pony has killer some pop songs on par with 80% of current pop music

i agree, additionally Dire Straits is underrated as a blues outfit and has several good albums

Vol 4 is a great album, but side B of Paranoid is better

The only good music to ever come out of the United States EVER regardless of genre and era is black music from the early xxth century to somewhere around 1975 and that's it THAT'S IT

Aphex Twin is pretty bland, even though I like the genre of music he makes. Never understood the hype.

Any album described as "Indie" is more about the aesthetic of being alternative than about any other themes presented on the album, and is thus artistically juvenile. This doesn't include independently produced albums, just the weird collection of genres described as "Indie".

Am I the only person who doesn't meme about Death Grips and just loves the way they sound? I don't listen for hurr durr 2deep4u that you're taking the piss on here, I just love their experimental sound. Surely you can understand some people also like to listen to them for similar reasons to punk and metal as well, due to their energy.

And I can appreciate singer songwriter stuff to, just recently I've been getting into traditional folk like the Water Wheel.

Pop is the logical conclusion to music

99.9% of hip-hop is intellectually and musically void trash, and this board is infested with apologists who hold it to a lower standard because it's made by black people

No, but you need to have atleast a basic understanding on how they're made and what it takes to make an excellent movie otherwise you really have no idea what you just watched and are quite literally a pleb.

My favorite genre is probably babymetal but i also really like kpop jpop and anime soundtracks. Some of my other jams are chiptunes and video game soundtracks and remixes of video game music. But babymetal is better than all of it.

I only listen to bands that dont have a Wikipedia page

music and art in general should only be used as propaganda to boost morale and inspire admiration for one's own culture.
>>
Fall Out Boy's first LP (Take this to your grave) is a masterpiece

>>61708914
I heard a song from that album at someone's house a couple weeks ago and have secretly kind of wanted to give that album a listen. It hasnt gotten stuck in my head bad enough to actually do it yet.

Likewise, but only as propaganda to boost proletarian morale and inspire world revolution. Under the workers state art will be used only to herald in full communism.

What are your opinions on other media like the news or television for example?
>>
>>61693937
Jazz is fedora

Dance Punk is stupid

OK Computer is the only good Radiohead

Most Electronic classics have aged poorly

Most modern rappers that are praised, the prime example being Kendrick Lamar, are just as cringeworthy as Hopsin

Vaporwave is enjoyable but if you ever admit that to someone or listen to it too much you're fedora
>>
>>61694298
The rappers you listed only got more popular in some instances because memes
>Young Thug's unintelligible singing
>Drake's dancing
And those are the most "normie" rappers out there
>>
>>61694298
>Dislikes Kendrick
>Likes Future, Drake & Young Thug

Oei...
>>
>>61709006
>Most Electronic classics have aged poorly
like what?
>>
>>61709060
Literally go to the /mu/ essentials chart, most of them have aged badly
>>
If you don't listen to and appreciate all major genres, you don't listen to music
Condemning a whole genre is the most pleb thing you can do
>>
>>61709138
just checked the chart, i think a few have aged very well
>>
>>61693937
Hip-hop is a shit genre which is mostly consumed by people with no taste or demonstrable knowledge of music, especially in the mainstream

Of all the possible stereotypes of ignorant fans, hip-hop/rap fans beat out punks, metalheads, tweefags, and everything in between
>>
>>61709185
Fedora
>>
>>61709217
some of them have aged well but alot have not

Like SAW is still a good album but I feel like I would have enjoyed it a lot more if I listened to it when it was released (and wasn't you know an infant)
>>
>>61709221
he's right, though.... condemning an entire genre is def pleb as fuck

see this faggot for instance
>>61709218
>>
>>61709246
Yes but if he doesn't condemn entire genres that means he must listen to Jazz and Jazz is fedora so he's fedora.
>>
Everyone on here is stupid but me
>>
>>61709239
idk, most dance older music sounds fine to me, but it could be because some of it hasn't "advanced" as much and even newer releases in the genre still hold onto the classic tropes (like techno and house. that lfo album still sounds fresh to me, same with stuff like mills or craig or hood)

some sound of their time, but i don't know if that that means they aged poorly - just that they have a particular timestamp (like the goldie album or the tangerine dream one). saw 85-92 still sounds good to me, but i get what you mean - orbital 2 is another ambient techno album from that era that aged a little better imo. personally i can't believe tri repetae is 20 years old.

That's only contrary to /mu/
