>remove Slint and you'd have a good chart
Fucking hell, people still don't realize /mu/core refers to what is discussed or referenced often on /mu/, not what /mu/ likes.
Some people only discuss /mu/core because it's /mu/core. If The chart was updated and based on discussion we would have had TPAB on a /mu/core chart in the past year. /mu/core isn't based on discussion- it's just hipster alternative "classics" that /mu/ newfags use to discover their own taste.
/mu/ rap recommendations
Type 0 is common terminology on /mu/.
It refers to the Hampus System of Music.
There's no offical list of /mu/core and no way to update it.
Take a bunch of random albums, stick it on a black image, and convince the rest of /mu/ that those albums are the best. There's your fucking /mu/core.
This is correct /mu/core is based off of board cultural impact/frequently discussed. People often confuse quality for /mu/core. Which is why we have threads like "why isn't x /mu/core?" Which is why people complain about /mu/core being shit. Like ITAOTS is /mu/core because back in 09 the reissue got a 10.0 from p4k which caused a shit storm. MBDTF leaked in early November 2010 and caused a shit storm then the next week it got a 10.0 BNM which made a bigger shit storm which eventually led to the kanye backlash we have on this board to today.
/mu/core = most talked about albums not including flavor of the month new releases
I remember hampus, but not his system of music thing. But I looked at an archive and saw that type 0 is a commoner. Does that mean on /mu/ or in real life? Also an albums popularity doesn't devalue it's quality, and listening to /mu/core doesn't mean you listen to nothing else. Are you really strict about the difference between art music and popular music?

I agree but the original pretense is frequency not flavor.
>If the chart was updated based on discussion we would have had TPAB on a /mu/core chart in the past year.
I'm not into Kendrick's new album at all really but it SHOULD have been included due to discussion, but that sounds more like an issue of updating then anything else.
>It's just hipster alternative "classics that /mu/ newfags use to discover their own taste.
That's what the bottom portions of the Essentials is for, so that new anons can acquire some basic musical sense that may not be referenced in everyday threads. The top bar is for what's current. If you think otherwise, then you invite a debate that will never end based on people's personal preferences for what they consider "best taste" rather than what normally fosters discussion.
The fact people still associate the chart with what /mu/ collectively likes is because newfags never learn that's not what /mu/core is actually about.
I had a feeling you were. So, do you think it's impossible for popular music to be a work of art? I've thought a lot about it, and I feel as though it'd be tough for something so abstract to be art, while art music is actually written down. On the other hand I feel like a few albums that fall under the popular music umbrella really should be considered art, while I've heard the argument that all music should be considered art because it's an "expression". But, I think that might be a bit too liberal with the definition of art for me. What do you think?
hot off the press.
in an aeroplane over the sea almost isn't /mu/core anymore (nowdays it is mentioned as an example of an album /mu/ likes to talk about a lot more than it is mentioned for it's actual content), but it still narrowly makes the cut. albums like blackstar and DS2 might be talked about a lot at the moment, but they won't be once the hype dies away so they're not /mu/core and i didn't include them.
albums that i was unsure about: niggas on the moon, illinoise, deathconciousness, in a silent way, lift your skinny fists like antennas to heaven.
i'm not sure wheather or not i picked most talked about swans record.
Guys please don't forget about metal. thank you
it's shoegaze with tremolo picking and bm screams.
besides, "/mu/core" is albums frequently discussed on /mu/. metal isn't really discussed outside the general spare the occasional namedrop
I will never understand why /mu/tants began liking the doors. I thought they only like stuff that triggered "dem feels"
If the doors do that for you, you are either Hunter S Thompson or trying really hard to be him.
