Shitty rapping with shitty lyrics over poverty techno beats and people say it's a classic or some shit.

And if you disagree you'll get flooded with people telling you that "you don't understand" or that "you had to be there to appreciate it". If it was truly great, surely anyone could appreciate its greatness?

you didn't "have to be there" to understand that this was a great album. It's neither over or underrated. It's just rated
>>
>>61792700
i mean even if you don't like the way the album sounds which is perfectly fair enough, the fact that it was almost entirely created by a 17 year old and basically spawned an entire new sub-genre of music all by itself is pretty impressive

It's so overrated.

The instrumentals sound like they were made on a Game Boy Color, which they probably were.

And, shit, people always complain about not being able to understand rappers like Future and Young Thug, but holy shit I have no idea what this man is saying, and when I do, I have no idea what this man is talking about. From the weird, overly abrasive voice to the fucking retarded slang terms. Oh, is it "Live O" Mr Rascal? That's great. Do you think I'm "Shoom!" and "Boom Ting!"? That's great man I hope that's a good thing.
>>
>>61792654
Nah Kid A is a nice attempt at modern krautrock. OK Computer on the other hand reminds me of Skyrim for all you /v/ shitters in here: has a bunch of content, but none of the content is all that great and people rate it highly just for the sake of the fact that there's a lot not necessarily the quality of the "a lot".
>>
>>61793309
>Do you think I'm "Shoom!"

Never mind, on second listen, I believe he thinks I'm "Choong!" Now I get what he's trying to tell me.

Not.

>>61792828
Kind of Blue isn't as overrated as the others. It's far too often recommended as an accessible first album (for jazz or Miles), that's for sure. It doesn't work very well without context.
>>

>>61792663
Kid A is great you shits.

I liked it, but too much rock and screaming for my tastes. Should I go on to Kid A, The Bends, or what?

Kid A is exactly what you're looking for. Krautrocky as fuck, and as a result has more in common with electronic music than rock.

Kill yourself. Not your fault you can't handle bars. Not to mention it's nothing like fucking chiptune so idk why you even brought a Game Boy Color up.

>>61792700
Stop making shit up like "you had to be there". You're obviously not from the part of the world where the music was made from so the ideas and concepts are totally lost on you.
>>
It's good but holy shit do people overrate the fuck out of it

I'm 90% sure every kid who walks around wearing a Dark Side of the Moon shirt has never listened to the album
>>
>>61794154

I used to own a DSOTM shirt when I was younger. I'd wear it despite only ever having heard "Money" and "Breathe". Now I've actually heard the entire album, 4-5 times over, but I haven't listened to anything else Pink Floyd.

Kill me.

I meant the song Kid A. I act retarded occasionally anon, forgive me. I got to National Anthem and stopped, I can't fucking stand this album. There's a fine line between electronic and rock for me.

Maybe it'll grow on me like OKC, but for now, I'm good.
>>
>>61792654
Yep
>>
>>61794243
Is this a real thing? Go listen to Idioteque off the album it's very obviously just electronic.
>>
>>61794306

I enjoy electronic and rock, anon. But the electronic I like consists of RDJ, specifically SAW 85-92/RDJ Album.

It was a hugely influental record and years ahead of it's time tee bee aych.

Definitely Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I'm a Beatles fan but seriously that album is for the most part shallow with nothing of substance besides A Day in the Life. It's always in talks of best album of all time and it's not even one of the Beatles best. Yeah, yeah it was revolutionary in its recording blah blah blah. I'm just not a fan

>>61792654
Grew up with Radiohead, so I can't hate any of their album as they hold huge emotional value for me. No matter how meme or "overrated" they get.

>>61797559
Fuck no. It's a beautiful classic, showing how noise can be used in a symphonious way.
>>
>>
>>61795990
This.
Not as good as Revolver, not as accomplished as Abbey Road, not as adventurous as the White Album, not as good songwriting as Magical Mystery Tour. Hell, even Let it Be had better songs on it.
It's basically the worst album of the second half of the band's existence, and the only album of theirs that I wouldn't recommend to friends.

Technical =/= Too technical, animals is just some big show off, DSOTM is actually much better.

That it's not a very technically accomplished album is missing the point entirely.
It's basically the sound of being 19 and rich in a major city and partying all the time. The exuberance is what makes it.

Sgt. Peppers is overrated though. I also mentioned that it's recording was revolutionary which is why it was so influential. But dude, rolling stone called sgt. Peppers the best album of all time. That's a fucking joke

>>
>>61800561
Of course if the music an artist makes as several instruments and effects, and they all fit togheter and contribute to the final product, its a significant advantage when this music is rated, my point is, the fact that some music is simplistic or not very complicated, doesnt mean the music is itself bad, anon said that the fact that ITAOTS had only 4 chords was a bad selling point, while i disagree as that really doesnt matter as long as the music itself is good, see minimal techno, for example

feel like there's really no point as to why LET is saddled onto this 'FIRST/MOST INFLUENTIAL JAZZ RAP RECORD OF ALL TIME' praise other than the fact that it has upright bass & authentic percussion. it's really neither lyrically or instrumentally jazzy considering all tracks are in 4, mostly not swung without any experimental sax-solo-esque flows(like a busdriver type thing). smooth upright bass lines and drum grooves w lots of ride cymbal doesn't make it jazz. also gotta admit th lyrics are cheesy as fukk
