this shit gets too much credit it doesnt sound that special at all it is good but not amazing or groundbreaking
Not OP but totally agree with him. The most disappointing album /mu/ has ever got me to listen to. How is infantile go nowhere guitar and mumbled vocals groundbreaking? Boring snooze core is all I heard.
This thread has convinced me that Slint fans are a bunch of cardigan wearing betas who have convinced themselves that their music is good for the hipster cred. In reality there isn't a coherent thought anywhere in their fuzzy little heads.
>when ur too stupid to think of a response to an opinion that disagrees with your own
I AM IN NO WAY BITTER ABOUT THIS. IN FACT, I FIND IT HUMOROUS. HA HA HA HA HA
Everyone in the world disagrees with you and you're objectively wrong. Call it shit if you want but it's groundbreaking.
>doesnt sound that special
Yes it does. Name some albums that sound the same. Spiderland's sound is unique as fuck even if you don't like it.
>Everyone in the world disagrees with you and you're objectively wrong. Call it shit if you want but it's groundbreaking.
how's it groundbreaking? there was better post-harcore before it, and better post-rock before it.
Notice how Slint fans just spout shit they've read somewhere else. They don't address the actual music. They don't address the infantile guitar, the mumbled vocals, the horrible production or the overall cringe worthy lo fi boredom of the whole album.
Narwhal Shit is pretty unique anon but that does'nt mean it smells good.
Yes, but they took it in a completely different direction. It's groundbreaking in the sense that while it may not have matched the greatness of earlier post-rock and post-hardcore albums, it took both genres and made them into something completely original.
rites of spring, husker du, steve albini's shit, there's a whole early emo scene worth looking into
talk talk and bark psychosis are two good examples of bands that were much more "post rock" and came before spiderland
that's your fault, not mine
it may have been original, but I would argue that it wasn't groundbreaking in the sense that it wasn't very influential. How many bands trying to do a post-hardcore and post-rcok fusion have you seen following slint
i guess its ok if you like it but you have to understand that there's a reason that other's dont.
it's basically like the next step in post punk. by mixing aggresive hardcore and punk timbres with more advanced composition techniques than most post-punk bands were doing they made something unique. along with predominantly spoken word vocals and stark lyrics, it is a very likable combo. is it post-rock? is it post-hardcore? is it math rock? who cares. that's why people like it
If you don't love it that's fine, but I would say that it is a fairly ground-breaking post-hardcore album. Slint added more atmosphere and length to the sound of bands like Fugazi which was substantially new for 1991 terms.

That's not what The Beatles thought
