>>61920265 ignoring your silly choice of vocabulary, for the longest time I thought I would never like it... A year of listening to increasingly different and experimental music later, I love it now. Try getting into jazz, especially of the free variety. Jazz will probably help you more than anything to understand this
It's just a brilliant, fun record. Stop trying to take it seriously. Only autists can't handle it. It's literally a guy humming ideas to a guitarist to transcribe and half written on a piano--an instrument the composer had no clue how to play
>>61922689 Howlin Wolf is from the Delta area, but his music is closer to Chicago Blues. JLH performed in Chicago and Detroit and stuff, but still for the most of it maintained a Delta blues feel to his stuff.
Rain Dogs came out after TMR, but at the same time I couldn't think of an artist better than Tom Waits to show vocal similarities to Beefheart due to how much Beefheart influenced Tom.
>>61920265 i listened today for the first time in a while such a masterpiece The more you listen to it the better it gets. I'd recommend listening to some other chaotic experimental stuff that maybe isn't so abrasive Give it time and relisten. Amazing album
>>61924155 The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady is my favorite Jazz album ever (well i don't know a lot of Jazz, only the classics but still), and i still don't get TMR at all. It just sounds awful to me, sorry
>>61924187 Well, one thing that makes TBSATSL so ambitious and also part of the reason it's still tied for my favorite jazz record along with On The Corner after having listened to more jazz:
it has a lot of things going on at once. Like shit at its craziest it has like 7-8 different things happening at once. But at the same time it's not pretentious sounding it all just works together very well hell you can even dance to it. Are you able to discern all the various things that happen in this album? If so, apply the same to TMR. Like Mingus' masterpiece all the instruments and vocals are doing completely different things, but at the same time are actually still cohesive, so like TBSATSL you gotta pay attention to what each part is doing then put it all together.
