giving albums a perfect score after one listen is a pretty retarded thing to do, but i gave this 5 stars after one listen many years ago and it's remained 5 stars ever since
You're a retarded thing to do. Sometimes an album just clicks with you or is unlike anything else you've heard in the best of ways.
OP I agree on giving that one a 10/10, when I first heard it I was blown away. All of their stuff was truly great.
I was actually wondering, all of you people who have rated hundreds of albums on rate your music, how many times do you usually listen to an album before rating it? So many of my favourite albums I disliked or didn't appreciate after many, many listens.
liked it less on second listen, actually. but after subsequent plays it has gone back to a 10
this one made my mind go crazy, yet kept me entertained the whole time
i don't like this album anymore though
infact i don't like any of the albums i initially rated as perfect anymore
there's always an implicit lack of replay value in any album that resonates so strongly after only one listen which is why any album that does that probably isn't nearly as good as you think it is
it's a ten to this day. It is however my second favorite album, but my favorite is almost /mu/core so I won't mention it
One of my favorite albums, So fucking good.
This, and Long Season. That one made me cry at the end, for some reason.
I actually rate them immediately so that I remember to revisit them. I like to go through my ratings semi-regularly when I don't feel like listening to something new. That's where I decide to revisit an album if I'm feeling it. Good example would be Loveless, which I think is pretty typical for most people. Thought it was about a 3.5/5. Decided to revisit it since it's mentioned so often here. Listened to it for a full day at work (9-5) and it is now one of my seven 5 Star albums.
if you haven't, check out Ben Frosts' By the Throat.
One of my favorite albums of all time, and Tim Hecker said it was his favorite album of 2009.
The rest of Ben Frost's stuff is great too
very powerful album
pic related, my 10/10
technically a comp, but it's great nonetheless
not 10/10 for me but manu is great
anyone who disagrees is a STUPID FUCKING PLEN
the climax of "Jigsaw" still gives me chills years later
opened my mind to an entire world of hardcore and metal i'd never thought to explore before it
that's why I rate albums a 5/5 after I've already spent a lot of time with it and know I've enjoyed it for a long time, as it proved to both be awesome on first listen and have replay value.
At the end of the day who gives a shit what anyone rates anything anyway lmao
But don't some slip the cracks? I would rather have the most accurate ratings possible so I listen to an album at least 3 times but usually a lot more before I rate it. Even then I may still come back to change it but at least my first rating is accurate for that time.
these for me too
I gave these about a 7/10 after one listen, but they're very good for sure
this still hasn't clicked for me
Do you it more than Kalk Samen Kui no Hana? Because that one is pretty much my favorite album.
this also got me into swans / michael gira
If an album can move me to tears in the first playthrough, it's a 10. It's not the most amazing piece of music ever but god damn is it beautiful.
Weighing Souls With Sand is a 10/10, great taste OP
these are great, but not 10/10's
