Post a favorite album and other ppl tell you why it isn't that good
name one flaw
>not a meme
>earrape is not a flaw
No. Singing about failed relationships isn't a flaw.
I'm not sure anyone would call it a masterpiece but its certainly an album I listen to allot and the tracks pack allot of hidden meaning that I'm still discovering.
[spoiler]I can't tell if Anglia is a bad track. It makes me too butthurt to critically evaluate it.[/spoiler]
I felt it was missing allot of the energy of her earlier work. The fact that its a very sombre album isn't a problem but tracks like 'Hot Knife' felt very weak and could've done with smashing a piano instead of going along a steady drum beat.
that is an invalid argument
1. it is not true
2. it is a lie
3. you didnt even tell the name of the 2 songs
4. you are gay
5. you are lying
7. you didnt explain why the other songs are bad
8. you are not telling the truth
No matter how I try, I can't get myself to like the second side of this album. I even like a lot of Eno's ambient work, and yet I just can't vibe to side 2 of Low. Were it more like the first side, though, it would easily be Bowie's greatest.
I feel similarly about the other two Berlin albums; half of the tracks are great and the other tracks feel a little half-baked.
>tfw already know the response
>giving a shit about autistic mans opinion
>calling other people autistic
>not getting a joke
>not actually responding to valid points
>trying to shut down your opponents opinion because it is not the same as yours
you see, both of us can play this game
"Warszawa" is an overlong dreary mess and "Weeping Wall" sounds like a really weak, kitschy imitation of Reich or Glass.
I can't actually think of any specific flaw but Feels is better. I barely listen to this anymore.
The songwriting isn't that good and there isn't really anything on this album that hasn't been done before. I hate the word "generic" but this really does just sound like a generic singer-songwriter album.
This guy >>61790044 is right.
I can't bring myself to sit through an album of songs all with that exact same aesthetic.
Fuck, there are none, aside from there just being better albums out there IMO, although admittedly there are very few.
These numbers senpai
Not my all-time favorite, I just wanna hear why people don't like it
Fair enough i can see how you could interpret it that way
desu kind of like that intro, reminds me of hunky dory
>>61790102 low is not glam / dad rock
the instrumentals work inside the album
agree with this sort of, welcome to the machine really kills my enjoyment of that album
'i heard her call my name' is a boring song that I will always skip.
Thought it was average at first but now I think it's a 9/10
One of my top 3 album.
The second one of my top 3 album, not in order, they are all first, i just can't decide.
The tracks feel like repeated, and it doesn't have aged so well
Some tracks feel out of places
Not really a flaw, but it feels like it's missing something
No flaws at all
Some tracks are pretty bad
ending the album on Largo
1 2 8 k b p s
too much reverb to cover up the okay songwriting
Loveless is better
Sounds good but pretty derivative
Ozzy has crappy vocals, that's for sure, and it sounds kinda stupid in a few other albums, but in this one i think it fits like a glove. Helps give it a "stoned " feel that other Sabbath's albums lack.
>no actual reason for opinion
>im right tho dw
Low is respected more than Heroes, because it's a fuller, more complete album, its perfect in length, and captures bowie's pop turning into art formula perfectly.
Seriously don't understand how you can prefer TMWSTW to pretty much any of his 70s work (apart from pin ups)
Instrumentation on each song is too damn similar.
the flaw is that it wasn't my pic related instead
All the boring rock generic rock songs
>what goes on
>beginning to see the light
>some kind of love
>that's the story of my life
all pretty mediocre compared to some of the trancsendant stuff on the album
Normal Mode: Don't talk about the 12 arrangements of 3 songs.
Hot knife is meh
no flaws, good taste
the songs sound kinda samey
drags on in some parts
tons of disposable interludes that do nothing but pad out the tracklist
mostly pretty boring
Haven't listened to that album but Laibach lost any sort of purpose when Yugoslavia fell apart. The three post-yu albums I've heard (NATO, Kapital, Spectre) have no balls whatsoever. They are money-making "subversion".
i really dislike this one
Laibach are amazing but I haven't listened to this album, I like the cover though
I think it's a bit boring
this album is great, including Dare
miles davis is annoying as fuck to me
idk this one but the album cover is nice
well it had been memed so much, still a beautiful album
I really liked tyler but I dislike his newest stuff and I think this time he really got to the rock bottom
too boy-ish, anyway a nice album
so positive and great, love this
I think it's their best
The middle tracks are boring.
Kinda bland. Not much interesting stuff going on imo.
Side 2 is kinda ehh. Side 1 is amazing though.
Most of the songs are bland and uninteresting
Electioneering is annoying. Good album otherwise.
Annoying album. His singing is good, but it's too noisy for me.
La La Love You is filler.
Nearly perfect album otherwise.
Some tracks drag on and on. Great album otherwise.
Boring and bland. The only good thing Ian Gillan did was Jesus Christ Superstar.
Let me guess,
>it's not jazz so it's shit
>it's too repetitive
>Miles doesn't play like he used to
don't have the album cover on hand but here's the wallpaper version
This is an early favorite
get it? cause his name his...my penis just shrunk.
Way too long
I find his voice a little too removed. To be fair, I've never properly sat down with the lyrics and stuff, really should soon I know.
The lyricism is very vague in terms of subject matter
First track is the best
Only listened once so don't take my opinion seriously, but I don't really like the lack of clear solos, as I find it difficult to find emotional peaks in the music as a result.
I don't like hidden tracks
Tonight is the definition of a flaw
The instrumental sections in the second half can get a bit overly long
I feel like my only flaw is that it's not adventurous enough, which is only really bc of how great RiL is.
I don't know really, Silver?
All the songs sound pretty similar
The more rocking, visceral tracks feel a little forced.
It's really good, I don;t think it's perfect but I can't think of a flaw
Double Helix is too long
Tracks 2 and 3 drag on compared to the amazing first track.
Only flaw is that I'll never be as cool as 60's Lou Reed
tracks 7-9 make it a little too long.
Once you listen to it enough you'll realize that For Dinner... is necessary. Imagine going straight from Washer to Good Morning, Captain. To some, it would be great, but for me it would be too jarring. Think of For Dinner... as the build up to Good Morning, Captain.
formulaic, wears thin fast
lenght, amount of fillers, rock opera aesthetic
I guess I can understand since it's the least like the rest of the album. I think that's the one track Bowie had the least hand in though since Eno got a co-writing credit for it.
I'm very flattered.
I love Bowie. Low, Heathen, The Man Who Sold the World, Scary Monsters, Station to Station and Blackstar are my favourites of his.
Kate Bush's ''The Dreaming'' and ''Aerial'' are amazing. And i love Radiohead's ''In Rainbows'', and as another anon said: Ockeghems ''Missa Prolationum'' sung by the Clerks' Group. Brian Eno's ''Another Green World'' and ''Ambient 1: Music For Airports'' are great.
>"..is disjointed, with seemingly random sentences and free-associative phrases appearing throughout the lyrics."
>"..heavily influenced by the work of Brian Eno,.."
>"A "blip"-like sound comparable to the sounds later made by Pac-Man.."
>Between Breaking Glass and Sound and Vision
their only flaw is that they have an end
middle tracks, although far from being shit, don't hold a candle to the bookends
it's not bad but it's Eno's less good art pop album, it feels loose in a wrong way
first track was the best and the rest were all too samey
it's just some very good odd tempo'd emo
its quality is very unbalanced: some tracks are great and some are just filler
solid, great, yet not perfect
Oh Comely is too long
beautiful, but it has lots of filler and the diverse instrumentation doesn't hide well the repetitive chords
The Murder Mystery is shit
Let It Be is waaaay better
just a whinier, distorted Big Star
it has some good songs hidden in the filler
I think, start to finish, it is solid. Very solid. Some tracks only work on an album listening, like Vampire Blues as the other poster mentioned, but as an album, it's undoubtedly his best. I'd say the reason it doesn't have the following of, say, Harvest or After the Gold Rush (which are still great albums), is due to Neil himself refusing to reissue it for so long. I think if he had, we'd be looking at it as a /mu/ essential.
I could only get into Halleluwah
People who think that For Dinner is a flaw are phuccbois
Everything after The Cage (Hacker is good, but by the time I get there, I'm just waiting for the album to end)
The drum solo
Lack of voice samples hurts the atmosphere.
i was gonna post this, its a perfect album
another perfect album
IIMMMM A HIGHWAYYY STAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRR
but seriously Jon lorde and Ritchie Blackmore fucking killed it on that track
This kinda sucked imo. Can't find anyone who has the same opinion as me about this album. I love itcotck though
I liked it, but prob the weakest gybe release
the only reason it's bad is because amnesiac and kid a (more importantly amnesiac) are better. But that's a shitty reason
This one is ok, tweez is way better IMO
Mine should be pretty easy, since it's something you either love or hate. Took me 4 listens to fully get into
