why is this album so fucking terrible? its literally the most bland uninteresting dildo music i've heard in recent memory
>>

>>62042014
Lol

It's music for people who like basic things That sound "beautiful"

because you have no happy memories of the sun setting into the ocean

I'm guessing you don't listen to a lot of electronic music..

op here, I listened to the art of chill 2 by jon hopkins and it was dope. I was looking for more cool shit but instead i stumbled upon a shit load of pleb elevator music
>>
>>62042057
you like the most basic shit possible what the fuck are you talking about you are in no position to make fun of tycho fans

what are you doing on a music board nigga

it's kinda nice

that's about it though. nothing too interesting, nothing too offensive...it's about as exciting as laying on a beach. and that's okay
>>
it's unobtrusive and easy to listen to, and it sounds nice and pleasant

Far from anything amazing, I still enjoy listening to it. I know it's not challenging and understand why people call it bland, but to me it's pleasant in a way a nice breeze is pleasant.
>>
>>62041990
thats too bad. i really like this album.

i remember the first time i heard this me and my friends were out in my little 14ft boat fishing and he put this on. the sun was setting on the pond and it was a perfect summer evening. now every time i hear it i think of that time.
i can see why people wouldnt like it, but i think its very pretty and extremely relaxing.
>>
>>62041990
Yeah this album is pretty shit
>>
>>62042057
Like Coldplay?
>>
>>62042057
Sadly, this tripshit is right. I love Tycho and all, but the album itself is just... bland and repetitive. His first album is great. That's it, it rips off BoC blatantly.
>>
>>62041990
It's good to put on as background music when you need to focus on something else.

Honestly I've played through this album more than 10 times and I have no idea what it sounds like except for the first song.
>>
If you wouldn't suck Tycho's dingus then you are literally gay.
>>
>>62042139
Not sure if that's her lip or her tongue.

Cascade is still a fantastic song though

It's popular. so I'm superior if I tell everyone I don't like it. This is you, OP.

Sufjan Stevens I really disagree with. He's great. You just don't like him because he gets a lot of attention here.


Coldplay I can totally see where your coming from. They are a bland band and that's part of their appeal honestly. They don't challange anything.

I agree. I play this album late at night all this time. It's refreshing to listen to after a day of bombarding myself with music full of experimentation, color, abrasiveness, etc. It is a tame album, but still has elements that grab the listener's attention in a calming way. 7/10 albums, good for the "downtempo" moments in life they were made for.

Basically, it's soundtrack music. That's why every yt comment is about how they just *love* doing their homework to it. You know, normies tend to think this way about music a lot... "This song got me through a tough time"... "This song is perfect for driving down the road with friends". Like music is this purely complementary thing to whatever they're doing. Plebs can't appreciate art for its own sake, and that's OK. That's why there are albums like this one-- albums called fucking "dive", as in, "dive in to the experience of what you're doing in life with this album, man."
>>
>>62041990
Jesus Christ /mu/ at first you really dig this album and now you hate it.
You guys literally hate everything that's popular simply because it is popular.

Fucking mouth breathers.

It's music that sounds excellent if you haven't listened to Boards of Canada or OPN before

Saw them live at a festival, was kind of excited but it turned out pretty boring. The studio albums are actually better

Would rather listen to bonobo for "chill beats" any day
>>
>>62042634
Holy shit I hadn't listened to Tycho and boards of Canada recently but you're right. Boc might not do the percussion like that but the synth is uncanny

basically people are a bunch of feminine wimps these days who can't listen to anything that doesn't sound "soft" and "calming"

GUYS ! Please listen to this at 1.25 x speed, it creates a whole new perspective of the song, so a completely new one is created. And you understand the beat Tycho composed in a much more slower and smoother version. kind of Lounge-y

I like the minimalism.

It's a phenomologist's wet dream, as it basically is aesthetic music personified.

>>62052506
lol, absolutely not
>>
>>62052508
this is not minimal music, or all pop music is minimal

>>62045739
you're and idiot

I haven't listened to this album in a long time, but it actually develops its themes in relatively interesting ways at points. I wouldn't completely discount it
>>
>>62052508
>aesthetic music personified

elaborate?
>>
>>62052557
I do, too, but at least BoC decided not to constantly see how many times they could get away with remaking TCH.

I tried listening to it, and a few tracks in I forgot I was listening to it.
I wasn't even doing anything else at the time.
It was just so uninteresting that it essentially became non-music while I was listening to it, like soft white noise.

I'd feel bad crucifying it with a poor rating because I've never actually finished it, but I've never felt a desire to finish it either.

>>62042243
It's so nothing though. I'd rather listen to birdsong and crickets and stuff.

As screencapped this perfect comment for later use.

Gives off a very nostalgic feeling for youngsters. Safe, unoffensive downtempo for "indie" kids who never touch the genre otherwise. All that sad, I love this album but it's been awhile since I've listened to it.
>>
>>62041990
Because at some point someone would make an ambient-pop album.

>Minimalism
I wish those musicians would not allow themselves any repetitions, and would go faster in developing their ideas or their findings, because I don’t appreciate at all this permanent repetitive language.

It is like someone who is stuttering all the time, and can’t get words out of his mouth. I think musicians should have very concise figures and not rely on this fashionable psychology. I don’t like psychology whatsoever: using music like a drug is stupid.

One shouldn’t do that: music is the product of the highest human intelligence, and of the best senses, the listening senses and of imagination and intuition.

And as soon as it becomes just a means for ambiance, as we say, environment, or for being used for certain purposes, then music becomes a whore, and one should not allow that really; one should not serve any existing demands or in particular not commercial values. That would be terrible: that is selling out the music.
