Rodeo is the logical progression to trap music. shit is genius.
>>61997894 that beat sounds like a modern day version of College Dropout. the intro track sounds like a modern day trap version of Nirvana. the album is genius (theres like 2 tracks i could go without on it though).
>>61998122 angry kid was actually pretty creative senpai. its the first album to really encapsulate sound with concept the way it does. the instrumentals, the concept. the details are what gets me. like for example the way the sound gets really robotic in pyramids when he mentions it and mentions a revolution, but then the sound gets claustrophobic and fades almost immediately, its all really symbolic and i can see why a lot of people on this board just dont get it. people like you need a music critic to explain everything for you. im sorry you arent able to enjoy it. its really good imo, but i like that sort of stuff.
It sucks so I'm gonna break it down song by song and prove that I'm right.
>Pornography Illiterate black guy rambling about space and nonsense that adds up to literally nothing. Shit intro, doesn't get you amped at all.
>Oh My Dis Side Sorta catchy hook is let the fuck down by Travis' absolutely boring and pointless moaning style of "singing"
>3500 This song is fantastic
>Wasted Juicy J sucks dick in this song, and the beat sounds like a stupid loop of some carnival music, it's annoying as fuck
>90210 HAHAHAHAHAHAHA how the fuck do you people take this album seriously? This sounds like a shitty version of 808s
>Pray 4 Love Weeknd: The Song. Travis might as well be a fuckin feature on this thing, he just floats around in the back and gets outshone like crazy
>Night Call Chief Keef is singing. I mean, what the fuck is wrong with you people?
>Piss On Your Grave Kanye could not possibly give less of a fuck about this track. Apparently they tried to cover that up with some over the top production but the whole song sounds like buildup to nothing.
>Antidote INTENSELY REPETITIVE, holy fuck, there's like 4 words in this piece of shit
>Impossible More autotune rambling in the guise of singing, OH BOY
>Maria I'm Drunk This song isn't bad, but for fucks sake it's got a Bieber rap feature
>Flying High Awkward mix of amped up beats and low key beats in the middle that doesn't add up at all
>I Can Tell & Apple Pie I'm not even gonna listen to these fuckin songs. I've never made it this far in the album because it's all the same stupid autotune rap-rambles over mediocre beats.
here. listen to the whole thing high. if youre not high dont bother. download it and listen to it when you got some real pack and itll take you on a trip. i have a feeling most of the people on this board are straight edge.
>>61996053 >download because /mu/ memed about it for long enough for me to consider it >music bee gives me different album art than what i've seen (pic related) >triggers my autism >nigger with gold teeth and gold chain >what is this shit? something from 2006? >Ft. justin bieber, immediately delete track without listening >listens to first couple tracks >spoken word with curse words, edgy af senpai >actually using auto-tune robo voice in 2015 >well maybe this track with Toro y Moi is redeemable >literally just goes back and forth from toro y moi style to nigger shit > I be flying high, I be flying high, shorty, I be flying high, I be flying high, I be flying high meme threshold has been improved to filter shit like this.
>>61997919 This. Travis might not be the best rapper when it comes to lyricism or technical skill, but that isn't what he wants to be known for ("I am everything except a rapper"). He incorporates elements from trap beats like 808 drums and dark synths, but throughout the project you hear a wide array of instrumentation. No project had this level of production in 2015.
>>61998458 >You're really complaining about the use of autotune >go back to the early 2000's it's 2016, people are still using autotune like it brings something new to the table. autotune is a fucking old, overused crutch for creativity. last time I actually heard it used creatively was Poliça.
>>61998452 i dont think thats a fair assumption without hearing all of it properly. i didnt like it at first it took me a couple listens but i still listen to it now from time to time. on the other hand if its not your stlye its not your style.
>>61998545 no ive talked to people on here who have claimed they enjoyed it sober. it isnt about that. every album is "better" high. jonathan did the mixing and stuff to make it enhance the high or something. i know it sounds dumb but its pretty good. id rather stop defending it now i feel like a shill. i dont really care if you like it or not just throwing out my opinion.
>>61998577 You're fucking retarded. Snare drums and synths are legitimate instruments which produce unique sounds. Autotune is, at best, a kind of drum, not the concept of drum itself. It's just like a style of singing, and not something apart from singing itself.
>>61999484 seriously it hardly gets spammed anymore but the spamming opened many people to it and it's pretty good. this isnt a car seat headrest situation ive been on /mu/ for years and its pretty obvious Jonathan has a fanbase consisting of entirely /mu/tants. dont start another argument keep the thread related to the topic of Rodeo, which wasnt very good if you ask me.
>>61999757 this >>61999484 >>61999787 please stop. you are embarrassing. you didnt get it, and youre only drawing more attention to your underdeveloped IQ. since you insist on talking about Jonathan, id like to say that Angry Kid is easily in my top five favorite albums of 2015. are you done?
>>61996053 I liked Rodeo but imo there were better hip-hop releases. TPAB was huge, but aside from that we had Barter 6, Every Hero Needs a Villain, Darkest Before Dawn, Dirty Sprite 2, Compton, and Summertime '06, all of which I liked more. Antidote is in my top 5 hip-hop singles of the year though, so it definitely has that going for it.
