1. If you call anything "Boring" for any reason you are a pleb.
2. If you call anything "Pretentious" for any reason you are a pleb.
3. Contrarianism is no longer looked down upon as long as it is honest.
4. All /mu/ users must listen to all albums on this chart, (or the alternate chart) as they will be the new center of discussion.
5. Do not protest and say that the new albums aren't /mu/ core because they aren't discussed. That is exactly what's changing.
>not liking cactus
How can you not like Cactus? They are the greatest band of all time! When they played, John Lennon. Lemmy Kilmister, Freddie Mercury and David Bowie realized they were no longer needed on the earth, so they killed themselves over the shame of not being able to best the world's greatest musical masterminds of melodic masterpieces, Cactus. In fact, recent evidence came to light that Jesus Christ himself committed seppuku when he discovered that the true Lord and Savior of planet Earth was none other than Cactus. So before you even think of dissing the prickle plant, remember how monumental, megalithic and world changing Cactus is. Cancer itself cured by their audiological tones, world peace and hunger instantly solved by placing the needle on their record. Pope Francis, the Dalai Lama, Donald Trump, ISIS, Anthony Fantano and Stephen Colbert sat down and decided to create a new world religion worshipping the sweet, prickly rhythms of Cactus' new album. If you do not want to suffer the fate of your infidelity, I suggest you recant immediately and think twice before ever, Ever, EVER shitposting against Cactus, the Great and Needly on /mu/ EVER AGAIN. Praise their spiky fronds, forever and ever, Amen.
I can see Sophie, Can and Coil as they're milestones of their respective genre and they're frequently discussed here. None of the others though (convince me otherwise, but I don't see the others discussed often enough here or they're albums that aren't 'milestones' of their genre)
Neo /mu/ is still Loveless and ITCOTCK imo. A Love Supreme and ITAOTS have become a part of /mu/ so much that I can't think them away from /mu/
I can see MBDTF, TPAB and Madvillainy. Barter 6 is reasonable but I would wait if either DS2 or Barter 6 establish here, because right now I'd give the spot to DS2.
Imo this should be a chart that everyone is more or less comfortable with. You can't just decide for yourself what's /mu/core or not. This chart will not establish because most people will disagree and the old chart stays the norm. I'm all for a new chart but at least some kind of democracy is necessary.
End this shit now. If you wanna discuss those albums on /mu/, do it. Literally nobody is stopping you. What I don't see is why you are trying to change /mu/ and it's culture. It's well established and a lot of us browse /mu/ because we enjoy it that way.
Also, you obviously don't understand what the term /mu/core even means. Just stop with these threads already. This board isn't some "book club but with music". Go get a blogspot or something.
At the very least, add Bob Dylan's The Times, They Are A Changin, so that old /mu/ knows it's no longer welcome.
it's all hopelessly unoriginal music that's been done five years ago, better, and with none of the pseudo-intellectual art school baggage that defines everything put out by that label
So, by that rule, my super secret favorite album that never gets discussed becomes nu/mu/core?
Sweet! Alright faggots, here's some /mu/core for you
>Carly Rae Jepsen
how is this in any way better than the current /mu/core?
you realize the same thing could be said about many many albums, but that doesnt mean they are "shit." The melodies, textures, and drum patterns are all pretty interesting (to me). You are the real pseudo-intellectual. that's not even a criticism, are you implying that he is being disingenuine? Sophie conveys his point through sound, something I believe only true intellectuals could do.
Not OP, but the album is the only good cohesive project that combines Hypnagogic Pop, Post-Trap and Soundcloudcore. Name one other album that was released before this, that sounds like it I'd honestly like to hear it.
>Hypnagogic Pop, Post-Trap and Soundcloudcore
>investing this much in such a shitty place
You're distracting yourself from fulfilling your bigger goals. Work towards that, not towards trying to turn a shitty online community into what you want it to be. Go practice your instrument, go to shows, go to shows and meet other musicians, get together with other musicians, learn how to save money, get an education, create music. Don't waste your time with this shit.
what needs change and why? why change the literal meaning of /mu/core, and dictate what is and isn't instead of having a natural, dynammic and collective flow? i just don't see the benefits or fun in it.
to me this just looks like some newcomers/spoiled rich kids having their feelings hurt by some anonymous internet stranger who talked shit about their favorite album and/or have a hard time getting into forum culture, and figured that "this place is mean, everyone should be lawful good, let's change this board for the better".
i'm spending too much time and energy on this. this shit won't catch on anyway. good look, fascists.
But who decides? If /mu/core isn't what's being discussed, then it becomes a single person's opinion reigning over the rest of /mu/.
Therefore I exert control over /mu/ and demand they listen to Black Bananas the same way you demand they listen to Carly Rae Jepsen, and by your own rules there can be no disagreement on the this. If /mu/ is destined to become a dictatorship where the /mu/tants are forced to listen to certain musicians, then I will be it's ruler, master and allfather. /mu/ will be remade in my image, not yours - thanks for giving me the throne.
This shit is pathetic. /mu/core doesn't need to and shouldn't exist. A bunch of memers get together and decide to push a new shit meme and down talk anyone that opposes them to look like it's legit. Sadly some are gullible enough to follow this trash.
If you want memes go to r9k, this is should be a place for music, not shit memes and shill agendas. /mu/core should be outright banned.
Hopefully /mu/ will rise like a phoenix from the ashes and reject this piece of shit like it rightly deserves to be.
Seapunk and ocean grunge had to die before vaporwave could take it's place as the first legitimate post-music genre. This nu/mu/core Top 40™ will die out, and with it, the very concept of /mu/core.
fuck another meme world. brian eno was one of the great pop songwriters and he threw it all away to make shit that any ""pretentious"" dickhead with a computer can make. another green world was where it started.
>Do not protest and say that the new albums aren't /mu/ core because they aren't discussed. That is exactly what's changing.
Then they are not /mu/core. /mu/core are not the albums everyone SHOULD listen to, it's the ones that everyone HAS listened to and are being constantly discussed, made memes of, or generally spammed across the board.
You can't claim that something like Liquid Dynamite is /mu/core when it's mentioned like once every other year.
>Daring to disagree
Shall I report you for crimethink, anon?
Vangelis is literally thirty years out of date. It's aged horribly. His only works that are listenable now are 666 and Blade Runner, and a few single tracks like the Chariots of Fire theme.
Actually, I'm looking at the OP, and it's like:
>already accepted /mu/core
Ape of Naples, Money Store, Tago Mago
>"good" albums by "bad" artists
E*MO*TION, A Thousand Suns
>currently trending older artists
>some red herrings
Centipede Hz, Boston, Dream Theater
And that fucking boring-ass boring motherfucking Marsen Jules album that was getting spammed on here before it got bored out of existence.
>the #1 first rule is don't call anything "boring"
Marsen Jules pls leave
