One of the best post-rock albums I've ever listened to
Most inspiring record I've ever listen to.
I love you 2 man
Fuck that track is beautiful
Fucked Reality and Living the Laws always were just meh for me. Stza's albums always have like 2-3 tracks that just aren't as good as the rest. I swear if all of his albums were 10-11 tracks they would almost all be perfect
I don't recall having ever seen this album discussed on /mu/
mu's thoughts on pic related? 10/10 for me, this dude is incredible
this would have been my answer 5 years ago
Shut the fuck up.
To assume someone on /mu/ wasn't a fan of Bowie before his death makes you look stupid.
To do so with anyone else makes you look like a contrarian shithead. Someone died, let people miss him.
American Idiot is my favourite album ever
Good choice senpai
no other album or songwriter has yet to have the same effect on me
I have a few to choose from, but ill go with this one, becuase ive been enjoying th shit out of it for the past week or so
the smith-ish cover and how loved it is always makes me try to listen to it but i stop at the 3rd track or so i dont find it remarkable at all ill give it antoher listen
this album is well regarded but doesnt get enough love truly a materpiece
oh my god i never knew that was portishead singer!!!
I don't see too many people post late 60's/early 70's heavy prog on here.
Personally I find this the pinnacle of popular music because it solely focuses on what makes popular music good instead of the Beatles and Radioheads of the world who love focusing on having watered down art music elements. Would rather listen to art music for that stuff.
I've never listened to that full Pavement album but I know there's some great stuff on it. However I have listened to Slanted and Enchanted many times and I give it a 10/10
This album is so understated and subtle. Truly one that benefits from more than one listen.
I still listen to Choking victim, Leftover Crack, Reagan Youth, Conflict, and the like, but my top would be a bit more mainstream.
hopefully it's going to be better than their s/t
Correct answers would have been UFLO and TBoA. UFLO does not blow IIWY out of anything.
Honestly, I liked this album alot the first time I heard it, but the third listen clicked on me harder than anything I've ever heard. I had an ugly cry listening to the title track. The album's concept and overall sound feels touchy to me.
You really get it. You guys would like this.
I'm not even sure if most people disagree, but man that album just never gets old.
Not 10s for me but can't really argue with them -- could see how they would be for others.
My first ever encounter with goa trance - probably the reason why I love this album.
Great album, love that this guy is so popular. Not a 10/10 though. Papaoutai is a really basic song, only the lyrics are pretty good. Compared to other things on the Dutch radio however, 10/10
Ah. This is always the difficult part. I don't know much noise that /is/ a lot of comparable.
Probably their other releases, obviously. Not really comparable sonically, but p. much anything by Tim Hecker. Both have a lot of attention to detail, lots of background noise/instrumentation, and slow building/swelling.
Time Machines by Coil is amazing, as far as Drone Goes.
Pale Star by Barn Owl is kind of rhythmic/droney guitar, but much more straight forward than Going Places.
Alien Observer by Grouper.
Again, all of the above are fairly different, but have kind of the same vibe, for lack of a better term.
hbu anon? Recs? I'm into white/soft noise, but much of it is too droney or one dimensional for me.
Well considering Hecker is my favorite artist, it makes sense why i like this album so much haha. It sucks that so little in this genre really 'clicks' with me. This album, and Hecker's discography, are pretty much the only albums i absolutely love, the rest i've found is pretty good, but that's it. I'll try Time Machines.
The genre being noise? Yeah, I agree. Too much of it geared towards HNW stuff, imo.
Maybe try some of Prurient's earlier stuff too, if you don't mind droney minimalism, Annihationalist is good.
Time Machines is also super minimal, just btw. No where near as busy as Hecker or Going Places by YS.
not OP, but i was pretty pissed about his death
i started listening to him in december last year, and now i can't even talk to anyone about him or else i'll be the fag in your posts
>inb4 implying you're not a fag already
Can't wait to get called entry level just because i love and an entry level album.
It simple but intriguing, every track feels different and even if there is a reprise, that reprise feels something really different, I really love that album and even though I listened it 3 years ago, I like it in the same way as 3 years ago.
got done with it just a few hours ago
The sound lives up to the name of the album. I felt a pressure while listening to it. As in it was trying to tell me something. Whatever the case I was overwhelmed by the album. It plays it too safe in my opinion. I'd give it a 7/10 but I always go trough a album 2 or 3 times before giving a score.
I don't know what it is about this album but I love it
