Her train-wreck of a vocal performance is enough to put me off the album, but she throws in badly-placed dream-pop cliches, shit lyrics, shit synth noodling and other bullshit to top it off. Her guitar playing's pretty good.
As of late:
>pic related, Adele-tier "lyrical art pop" trash
>Internet Club's meme vaporwave album with Speed Racer on the front. complete garbage
>Bowie - Black Tie White Noise
Is this honestly a joke. You must know that this album is total shit.
It's too polished, it tries way too hard to be quirky and different with that god awful synth tone she uses and falls flat on it's face. The lyrics are total fucking shite. Really mediocre pop songwriting, the only saving grace of this entire album is her guitar.
>comparing one of the most critically acclaimed artits of the past 20 years to that garbage
I don't give a shit what other people think about her or this album, I personally can't differentiate this very much from Regina Spektor, Lily Allen or Natasha Bedingfield. It's obviously of a higher quality but it's all the same to my ears and I can't stand that sort of lazy pop music
It's actually fantastic because I don't listen to boring artsy bullshit for meckbeards. I listen to fun music that o go see live with friends instead of comparing music penises online
Enjoy Annie. She's just another vapid feigned-introspective narcissist.
>I don't want to be a cheerleader no more
Oh applause everyone, well done - I'm so glad you faced your demons, it must have been so hard for you
Don't be so mad. Annie is beauty, Annie is life.
someone out there probably likes this but its just not for me
You're an absolute contrarian if you think that Annie is scary.
Real talk I thought Cara and Annie were like the two most beautiful women on earth even thought I didn't like Annie's music, when I found out they were fucking it blew my mind
That's also fair, but there's such a strong connotation of those artists when I hear Apple's music that I'll probably never enjoy her music. I'll try an older album of her's, I've heard they get more folky (I did really enjoy the first track, just nothing after that)
She looks like she could be Cara's mother
If you liked the first track, then you might like Extraordinary Machine. Tidal and When the Pawn are a bit more aggressive sounding but they're both fantastic as well. But The Idler Wheel does sound quite a bit different than her other albums really
You wouldn't say there are over 10 years diff. between them
It was a fashion event. Not really her environment.
Agreed when it comes to music. But I'm trying really hard to be objective when it comes to how she looks. I'm not so much of an asshole that I can't separate the two.
Yeah she's fairly attractive. I would. But a lot of the time she's really not that good looking in my opinion.
This thread ruined my life
Their last two albums >>>>>>>>>> their first two
Not even memeing. I like most of the main melodies, and obviously it got incredible musicians, but I feel like this album is too much out and it doesn't have enough space overall. Dolphy does got a very very human sound and can get some insane sounds. But overall, I think that it has too much tension and not enough release. Some parts of it are just outright ugly which turned me off. It's interesting because I remember really loving this album when I first heard it a year and a half ago but now I just can't relate to it.
Like when she went back on herself and said Kate Bush was an inspiration ever since her teenage years, when in fact in an interview in 2007 she said she was only just getting into her? She's a fucking phony.
It just doesn't hold up to their older material
I don't trust critical acclaim either. Most of them aren't being paid off, they're just trend-hoppers.
I think she makes a specific type of music that is very accessible to a certain audience.
It's not the general consensus though is it? It's a select group of middle-class white tumblr browsers who are a very vocal minority. Most of /mu/ knows St Vincent isn't anything to shout about, and they don't, and the rest of the world doesn't either.
You're confusing the tumblr/mooooo users with the professional critics bro. Take a look at the pic attached and see how wrong you are.
This was terrible. Why cant more prog be like king crimson and Gong?
No. You're delusional, fag-idiot. Almost everyone like her, except few contrarians from /moooooooooo/.
