>>61740396 expects too much of the future, of both his surroundings and own capabilities to change >>61740423 not easily stressed out >>61740547 youre a /lit/ kinda guy yourself, and perhaps practice some kinda sport >>61740580 lacks in self-acceptance
Haven't made a topsters chart in a while so I'll just post mine >Lift Your Skinny Fists >Low >The Ascension >Remain in Light >Kid A >Daydream Nation >Since I Left You >Reckoning >Loveless >Emergency & I
If I could cheat I would put Lesson No 1, The Ascension, Symphonies 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, and The World Upside Down by Glenn Branca, too. Maybe I should do that thing next time where the background is all those Branca records.
>>61741270 Someone who possibly doesn't know what to do with his life and is somewhat jaded due to past experiences. Existential crisis maybe?
>>61741212 Has his own jam band. Smokes up quite a bit. Stays positive as much as s/he can.
>>61741056 Usually is good company and knows how to party/have fun, but at the same time has some shit going down in life, too.
>>61741004 Listen to the Ad Nauseam album from last year? Anyway, I think playing a drumset is your main instrument.
>>61740870 Is for the most part very friendly, but has moments of being weird/or annoying possibly when politics are brought up.
>>61742149 Yup I ain't the type to rush into things. My guess for you is that you are on one of these extremes: you either don't give two shits about what people think of you, or you very desperately do. No middle ground.
>>61742387 How about a beginner's guide to Glenn Branca? These are all the works from him which are at least worth checking out.
>>61742555 >you're quite possibly genuinely a good person, but you often try way too hard to act different. Decent but still small possibility of being jaded. Pretty spot on, but I'm more accepting then jaded though. I used to be a jaded fuck, but after awhile I stopped caring.
Also thanks for the Glenn Branca albums. I am a big fan of The Ascension. It is in my top 20, but I never listened to his whole discog though.
>>61742387 https://2995c29805bc62632246266798940ee013527468.googledrive.com/host/0B31ASET0VYFvWjE5SEtwZWZmbjg/chara.swf not sure if the link still works, last time it didnt for me. o wait yea it works as for the symbol you can try figure that out for yourself if you please thats the point :^]
youre into pretty much any kinds of myths, and eschatological stuffs
>>61742815 you think too much about how others might percieve you
>>61742844 Talkative, no. Argumentative definitely when I am set off.
Looking at your chart up there, my guess is that you have trouble being yourself. You yourself aren't necessarily even bad, but you possibly do stuff for the sake of impressing others which you really shouldn't have to do.
>>61743706 I wish I was boring to be quite honest. Anyway, my guess for you is...you seem to have beef with life in general leading you to be more uptight than the average person. Chill out and have fun!
On a side note I really love Heat Death Of The Universe. If I picked favorites off of how many times I have listened to something it would probably be in my top 10, too.
>>61743868 Everything. The qt thread format, particular selections on the chart (not the modern classical though hell I like that stuff and will have moments where I defend it on /classical/), posting mannerisms, the trip, etc.
>>61745496 You started wearing skinny jeans and flannel shirts about half a year ago (several years after "the cool people" started doing so), when you first began to "get into music". You wish you could grow a beard. You've just started college, your field of study is liberal arts or humanities related. You believe yourself to have vastly superior taste to the common masses who only listen to "radio friendly pop music", I mean, you have even listened to some jazz! You genuinely believe vinyl records have "better and more genuine" sound than digital.
>>61745402 You too consider yourself to have such great taste, much better and deeper than all those "plebs" around you. Your tastes are truly deep, you just can't understand how people around you don't "get" post-rock. It's too slow for them, they just want to get drunk and dance, fucking idiots. You're much more refined and deep than them. You watch anime, but only "real" anime that is philosophical and reflect your refined palate. You wish you suffered from a real psychological illness, but in lack of that you pretend to have "depressive episodes".
>>61745706 You think "hipster culture" has gone too far (because it's not trendy anymore), so now you're on the latest fad for "true music enthusiasts": poptimism. You don't REALLY like Deadmau5, but then again you've never really liked any music you listened to, and you're dead set to keep up any image that you believe will make people think you're "hip". You only started listened to Nujabes after he died, but you swear you've always been a die hard fan (for now, at least). You really wish you could just listen to whatever you want instead of working to keep up appearances.
>>61745711 You really believe modern music is mostly crap, and that music was better some odd 30-40 years ago. Any music that you like that is new, you only do so because you think it sounds like old music. You've only been on /mu/ for about half a year, but if anyone asks you will claim to have been here since "before the great indie vs. metal war", which you are glad was won by the indies. You live with your divorced father, despite thinking you're too old and mature to do so.
>>61745811 You don't really smoke, but you wish you did because you think it's cool. Unfortunately, you don't have any friends that could hook you up, and even if you did they wouldn't smoke with you. You think In a Silent Way is jazz music's undispited magnum opus, as it takes such great inspiration from better music, psychedelic rock. You really wish you could pull off leather pants, but you don't have the physique for it.
>>61745846 You're a white, 19-20 year old, middle-class dude who sometimes wish you were black because you believe you'd have more friends that way. You really want to talk to people about the (admittedly little) hip hop that you listen to, but no one around you cares. You only listen to "smart" hip hop, whatever that means. You've tried to host a party or two, but few people showed up and when they did they didn't like the music you played.
>>61746055 >You're a white, 19-20 year old, middle-class dude who sometimes wish you were black because you believe you'd have more friends that way. You really want to talk to people about the (admittedly little) hip hop that you listen to, but no one around you cares. You only listen to "smart" hip hop, whatever that means. You've tried to host a party or two, but few people showed up and when they did they didn't like the music you played. I'm not really too big into hip hop and don't believe my life would be better if I was black.
>>61745864 You work hard to be "trendy" and "in" on 4chan's /mu/, but you can't really let go of the music you listened to a year ago, which you truly love. You've tried to "get into" harsh noise, but never really liked it and will now secretly berate people who do listen to it, thinking "they're just pretending". You're either skinny or fat, definitely not fit.
>>61746006 You follow some kind of music magazine, blog, website, or similar, and hold everything they say to great value. You don't really listen to music, but mostly put it on in the background while doing other things. If anyone asks why you like something, the only things you can come up with are things that you've read in reviews. You really, really wish you had come up with a "great meme", and have tried forcing something on /mu/ to no avail.
>>61745895 damn I'm not that insecure. The nujabes part is half true tho (started listening to him after he died but I don't consider myself a die hard fan, I just like that album a lot). And Get Scrapped was probably the album that introduced me to artists like Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada so I kinda orbit to it because of the fonds memories I have of it. Deadmau5 in general is pretty good imo, and that last album was quite enjoyable.
>>61746186 >You follow some kind of music magazine, blog, website, or similar, and hold everything they say to great value.

Never forced anything on /mu/... and I don't read reviews. I'm more so a person who just likes really really "colorful" music I guess
>>61746270 >you don't care much about yr surroundings because you think yr the only thing worthy of attention. regarding issues such as environmental pollution, you often find yourself thinking 'everyone does it, why would i not'. Nope.
>>61746066 You once read an issue of The Wire and thought it would be a great resource for new music, but you don't have the disposable income to subscribe to it. You despise the term "mallgoth". You dislike how "random lul xD" has become something of an insult, because that's exactly who you were just a few years ago, when you first started browsing /b/ (and you loved it!) You believe rock is the pinnacle of music, despite not having explored much outside of it (in fact, you'll try to justify that "you don't listen to rock" by coming with examples of sub-genres of rock that you believe do not fit the rock paradigm).
>>61746251 You used to listen almost exclusively to metal, but when you discovered Pitchfork you realised you could enjoy other music too. You will vehemently claim that there is good metal music for all ages, but secretly you think to yourself that you "grew out of" all the bad metal you listen to as your younger self.
>>61746186 Correct on the not fit , skinny. Believe me or not I only just recently found 4chan and all of this music I had enjoyed beforehand. I don't like Harsh Noise that much but can get into some, but I do like Power Electronics. I don't berate people who do like it harsh noise.
>>61746270 I care for my surroundings. Pollution is bad.
>>61746270 >you don't care much about yr surroundings because you think yr the only thing worthy of attention. regarding issues such as environmental pollution, you often find yourself thinking 'everyone does it, why would i not'.
lol if you got that from what I listen, you must think every girl that greets you wants your dick
>>61740396 damn great taste, like pretty much all of this. any electronic recs? >>61740580 stoner who hates other stoners >>61740709 gr8 taste bud have you checked out king krule's album as archy marshall ? >>61741962 mucore but i guess i shouldn't be talking >>61742149 actually has fun in social settings unlike most of this board >>61742815 like this, how'd you feel about GoD? >>61744528 nice
>>61746055 >You don't really smoke I have no interest in smoking tobacco. I smoke weed every other day if that's what you were talking about, and I'm very thin as I only eat once a day, but I have no interest in leather. Other than what you said about In a Silent Way, everything you said just sounds like personal attack that doesn't seem to reflect the albums I like at all. >>61746270 >you don't care much about yr surroundings This whole thing was very untrue in regards to me.
>>61746266 You don't really care all that much about music, but you'll make damn sure everyone around you thinks you do. You follow most trends as best as you can, but unfortunately you're always a bit late to the party. You're really, really insecure about your tastes, and think that if you ironically call it "bad" you'll have some sort of defense against any critique. You only listened to We Insist! because you saw someone "respectable" post it on /mu/.
>>61746270 You used to work really hard to listen to only "obscure" music, because you think it's super cool to be different from everyone else. It's also your best line of defense against any critique -- if they haven't heard it, they can't comment, right? If you can't go obscure, you go critically acclaimed so you can use that as defense. You started listening to 385 after 人間 was released, but if asked you claim to have been a fan since 脳みそあらおうand really want to see them live. You secretly like Midori more, but they're too popular now. You wear your taste as a badge, and take any comment on it as a comment on your own person. You're deeply offended when someone says you have shit taste.
>>61746322 when you was a child, yr parents were too busy fighting between themselves to give you all the attention you so much needed. you found refuge in 'good' music and anime, you had shitloads of expensive hats on team fortress, but it's been years since you last played it. you now play in a band with an ironic name, and you like to define its genre as 'post-rock'. you cry yrself to sleep every other night. >>61746351 or maybe i didn't get that from what you listen to. also, every girls that greets me does want my dick, and i don't blame them. >>61746486 i'm not really that kind of person, honestly. which is a delicate way to say 'everything you stated is wrong'. but you can't always be right, can you?
>>61746337 When you found Pitchfork you were super happy to find a music review site that so much aligned with your tastes. Most of the music you listen to, you've found through Pitchfork reviews or recommendations from /mu/. You really wish you lived in Germany in the late 60s. Despite not playing any instrument (proficiently), you've always dreamed of being the front figure for a rock band. You once fell asleep while listening to Hospice.
>>61746379 >>61740662 Every time someone calls you a Scaruffi-drone you take personal offense. You secretly do read his website for new music, but you would never admit it. You once heard a Beach House song on the radio and was upset because they're "you're band". You really want to go to Iceland. You like knitwear, but it's too itchy to actually use.
>>61746562 >when you was a child, yr parents were too busy fighting between themselves to give you all the attention you so much needed. you found refuge in 'good' music and anime This is correct, but everything afterwards is inaccurate. If anything I'm a Sculpture and not a musician. And I don't cry, unless I'm watching a good episode of a Cartoon or Anime. Or playing a really emotionally driven Game. Which used to never happened. I think I got softer after listening to so much Post-Rock and Dan Barrett.
>>61746591 >Despite not playing any instrument (proficiently), you've always dreamed of being the front figure for a rock band You once fell asleep while listening to Hospice. This is true, the other parts are not, i don't use pitchfork and part of the albums i listen to are actually suggested me from a friend, got here after he suggested me something to listen to
>>61746428 You use the term "electronic music" because you're not comfortable with tags such as techno, house, trance, etc. as you have not listened to enough "electronic music" to discern them. You don't like spicy food, it gives you stomach cramps. You've always wanted an academic career, but your grades just aren't good enough.
>>61746457 You hadn't heard of Flying Lotus until you started listening to Captain Murphy. You claim to really like hip hop, but you've never read about or listened to the roots of the music. If someone asked you who Gil Scott-Heron is, you'd have to Google it.
>>61746726 i used electronic because i liked albums in his list from multiple specific tags that could easily be recognized as a whole as being electronic, like spicy food & go to the #2 college in the US
>>61746428 very /mu/core, you seem pretty cool though >>61746457 you seem cool but for whatever reason anyone I've met who prefers You're Dead to Cosmogramma is typically fairly pretentious without having the knowledge to back it up. so I guess that's what i think you might be like >>61746586 browses hhh all the time and/or has an account on KTT >>61746707 haven't listened to much non-metal or hip-hop
>>61746586 You're very set in your ways and dislike change. When order is disrupted, you're the first to get confused and annoyed. You didn't like Death Grips at first, but when it got really good reviews you knew you had to listen to them. You think To Pimp a Butterfly is not just a musical, but also a poetic masterpiece. Despite never having lived through anything like what's presented in hip hop, you feel a strong sense of connection to the rappers and their stories.
>>61746671 You often download albums based on the album artwork, despite not knowing anything about the music beforehand. You couldn't actually name any piece by Reich other than Different Trains and 18 Musicians without using Google, but you sometimes put his music on in the background because you think it's easy to shut out while doing something else. You once went to a classical concert, but was bored less than 15 minutes in and wish you had stayed at home instead.
>>61746707 You're preparing to graduate high school in half a year. You never cared about music, but you stumbled here from /b/ because "everyone likes music". You think most people "can't handle as heavy music" as you like, and if they could they'd like the same things you do.
>>61746827 You think jazz is "more patrician" than rock music, but you can't really get yourself to like it, despite your best intentions. You rarely, if ever, listen to anything that isn't popular music. You once downloaded an eBook on music theory, but never read it. You considered doing the same with a music history book, but changed your mind when you realised most of them deal mostly with art music, and not the kind of music you like. You really dislike the concept of "1001 albums you should hear before you die", but you've never even looked through the list of albums it suggests.
>>61746926 >download... >implying I don't buy albums like a good human being >...albums based on artwork okay maybe I'm guilty of that from time to time >You couldn't actually name any piece by Reich other than... I got into Reich through The Desert Music and You Are (variations) prior to those two - though I will give Trains and 18 are his better works >but you sometimes put his music on in the background etc etc.... true >You once went to a classical concert.. etc etc Not yet, but I would want to see some of Reich's works performed in concert
>>61747024 You've actually only listened to a greater handful of jazz albums, but you're sure that if you listen to free jazz people will think you're cool. You're not really that into it, but you don't dislike it either. In fact, most of the time you don't really listen to the music you put on. When you decide what to put on a chart like this, you always think to yourself that you must try to put something that isn't an artist's most popular work, despite only having listened to the album once or twice.
>>61747061 You once read that people who suffer from depression or bipolar disorder are more creative, so you believe that music that reflects these kind of mood disorders must be inherently better and more genuine. You think that happy music is just for dancing, and you don't like dancing. Or well, you think that you wouldn't, but you don't really go to the club to try it out, it wouldn't fit with your self conceived personality. If music isn't slow, it's not good.
>>61747158 You've been on /mu/ for just about two years now, and consider yourself an oldfag. You feel nostalgic about the times you used to spend playing video games online, but your interest faded and you lost contact with the people you played with. You've never heard of Tzadik. You first heard Sacre du Printemps during the 100-year anniversary.
>>61747127 I've listened to around 800 jazz albums and 300 singles, my heart goes with free jazz, but I also enjoy the other genres to a lesser degree. I've listened to those albums numerous times, but I try not to becasue I fear I might burn out of them.
>>61747251 The first time you heard Trans Europa Express, you were blown away, who would've thought the people who made "Das Model" could possibly make music like this? This set you on a course to discover more music that you would never have considered potentially great, but you stumbled over yourself and never got around to it. You've relied mostly on sites like RYM and last.fm to find music. Sometimes someone on /mu/ criticises your listening choices, but you dismiss it, thinking "I'm better than them, they probably haven't even heard half of the stuff I like".
>>61745895 kinda accurate > You've only been on /mu/ for about half a year. accurate >but if anyone asks you will claim to have been here since "before the great indie vs. metal war" wrong. >You really believe modern music is mostly crap, and that music was better some odd 30-40 years ago. i don't dislike modern music, but i find myself liking older stuff more >You live with your divorced father. wrong
>>61747339 You're really insecure that someone will call you a "backpacker", despite you only listening to "true" hip hop. You're sort of ashamed for being white and liking hip hop so much.
>>61747342 You think you're a really clever and unique individual. You think rock music started declining in the late 90s. Whenever you hang out with friends, you sigh every time they put on music. Any music, even music that you like.
>>61747389 Psychology students have a near 100% employment rate in Sweden, but I'm actually working to switch to medicine instead, as I'm much more interested in the physiology of mind :^)
>>61745088 Not as talkative as I used to be. Shit's happened. But judging from your own top 10 I am not the only one here who's had shit happen. Hope it's good.
>>61745711 Thanks for the compliment! My guess is that I believe you think something's missing in your life. I am not sure what it is, but I hope you are sure and have success in finding it.
>>61746270 Yup I am a selfish cunt. What are you gonna do about it? Exactly nothing. Guess: you seem like a pretty boring and predictable person. People know exactly what to expect out of you.
>>61746428 4 of my 10 albums aren't /mu/core. That being said I don't care either way whether my favorites are in some big chart here or how popular they are. You shouldn't either.
My guess for you is that you're actually pretty damn friendly overall. Certain things may not go your way but it's okay you'll still try your hardest to make the best of it. You maybe already have, or maybe in the future you'll try to go on a self-searching journey probably figurative but possibly even real as you may realize that some of the things you thought you liked you maybe don't really like that much.
>>61747389 Also someone's a bit butt blasted here. Did a comment hit too close to home? ;^)
>>61747505 Follow your dreams! You have an amazing opening to the internet that generations before you never had. No one even needs to know you're a scrawny white kid. If the music is good, it will be judged on its own merits!
It was realy hard to pic ten albums that were most important in different stages of my life. It may be not the best albums artistic wise and it's not mine "pactrician" choices but those who had a deep impact somehow.
>>61748288 Is nostalgic for times he either wasn't alive in, or wasn't old enough to remember properly >>61748217 Listens to music while laying in bed with his eyes closed >>61748065 Tried to play your favorite song at a social setting and then played it off as a joke after people started making fun of it >>61747342 Drinks diet coke >>61747251 Lives in a city you don't like because of work/school obligations, and you'd rather be somewhere quieter and more rural >>61747061 Replies "Nah, I'm just tired" whenever someone asks if something's wrong, which is often
>>61751222 you enjoy the feeling of being surrounded by people you think you can trust. You'd love to live a life of leisure, being more of a socialite than a worker. If you could be famous you'd hesitate though. You'd rather wait and experience the world with a select few, so that you could share stories with the people close to you in your twilight years.
>>61749525 Only one girl I have ever been was into fisting forget two fists :/
>>61751222 I am sure I would invite you to a party, too. My guess: I feel like you have two sides, one that is the party personality that gets along with every, is social, and knows how to have a good time. Another side that's a lot more emotional that probably only your closest friends and family members know of.
Cocteau Twins - Heaven or Las Vegas Ride - Going Blank Again David Axelrod - Song of Innocence Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain Astro - Astro Thee Oh Sees - Carrion Crawler/The Dream Luomo - Vocalcity Junior Boys - Last Exit The Clientele - Suburban Light Nicola Conte - Jet Sounds
>>61756186 you mostly follow a daily pattern. and you're mostly happy with it. But sometimes you do things on a rare whim and it brings you great joy. when doing these things you think there's much more to your like than is available. These moments are what makes you alive.
