>the only music I listen to anymore is from game OSTs
how do I purge myself of this autism /v/?
When I wanted to find something new, I just open a music video of something I liked on youtube and browsed related videos or read recommendations in comments.
Most stuff is crap, but I've found some gems this way.
That's not autism, vidya became another market for composers to work in, and some of the best guys working work in vidya now. Shittons better than most film OSTs now and leagues better than anything popular in any genre.
How about just don't give a shit that other people think it's retarded to mostly listen to video game music? Really, does it actually matter that they think you're an autistic piece of shit? You're on an anonymous image board. Do you genuinely enjoy the music? Enough sk to listen to it outside the context of the game? Then go for it.
This album literally sounds like something that would be produced if vidya was actually real, one of the most fun experimental electronic albums of the decade
>Acquire taste. Grow up.
I just found out that drummer from The Police wrote the Spyro music.
>What are non-vidya music that sounds like vidya music?
Vaporwave sounds like the music from LSD.
>He doesn't listen to The Man in Black
>he doesn't listen to avant-jazz thrash metal
Nothing wrong with if that's what you're into right now.
I've put some Nujabes into my playlist recently after months of almost exclusively listening to game and film OSTs.
Who gives a fuck. Music is music.
I do mostly the same.
31 years old. No shame. I also have a gf, a job, my own home and I work out and I don't behave weird in public.
So don't worry, unless you are fat, autistic and lazy. :^)
so this is a music thread, right?
Nobody just sits there and listens to music. It's something used to enhance an experience.
I use music when I'm studying, doing homework, working out, or walking long distances.
Very nice album, I recommend it to every DnB lover.
trust me you fine. at least you don't listen to k/j-pop vapor ware or what ever this is called
Shitty music: Everyday until you like it:
>not listening to comfy space music
Pssh, listen to some real music you kiddos
Listen to prog rock, a lot of old time Japanese vidya composers were heavily inspired by it for their work, so transitioning to it should be easy for you
Instrumental music is music in its purest form, vocals is only done by tryhards trying to act deep or corporate controlled pop music that requires meaningless words so that normies can sing along to it
>it's a /v/ has infantile knowledge of anything other than video games thread
delete it all you autist
start listening to this shit to set you on track at the very least
>mfw faggots don't know that the human voice is the most powerful instrument
>Unless you're one of those hipsters who only listens to instrumental music.
It's hard to study with music that has lyrics. I always end up writing down words from the song doing that.
>mfw you think an instrument only capable of 2/3 octaves is the most powerful instrument
>hey anon let me see you ipod
>why all japan and games music?
>and whats this gaw gaw gawlo sengan?
>pffftttt you are so weird anon
You have shit taste. See also:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1C_Vyt1hZC8
It's not so bad OP, what's really bad is listening to this exclusively.
MGSV myself had me listen to 80's music lately. Search for old chopper music threads in archive, you'll find plenty great suggestions.
On that topic, the extended soundtrack has released, and it's fucking awesome: http://vgmdb.net/album/56155
Also synthwave. I could listen to this on loop at night: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39zKhsT5naI
Firstly, do not go to /mu/
Start with a song you really like by an artist you really like. Even if it's something you barely remember from your childhood. NO VIDEO GAME MUSIC.
Find out what year the song and album was from, and what genre it is.
Type "[Genre] albums released in [year]" into google after that.
You will not like it all. But you will never find anything you do if you don't explore.
Music is my life. I would be dead without it. Please take this advice.
Videogames are a plague.
Why is EVERYONE here so retarded?
Mike Patton told me to tell you to kill yourself.
It's not hard to be smarter than /v/. Like at all.
It's not even that hard to find new music, see:
>mommy, someone made fun of me for listening to videogame music, waaaaaaaaaaaaaah
>le proving my le point meme
This is an 18+ board.
>mfw when I enjoyed that second video
>mfw when I have no face.
I already knew babymetal
hey this is pretty damn good, thanks.
I guess this is some of my favorite non-weeb, non-classical stuff.
About whether or not vocals are powerful, even if you dislike the genre, you can't really deny that metal vocals push the limits of the vocal chords in amazing ways. This faggot's one of the most talented vocalists alive and I don't even like their music, genre, or vocals that much. He's living proof that vocals are incredibly versatile
I forgot to add that Music is the most subjective media on planet earth. It's why things like Death Metal and Dubstep exist.
Absolutely no one but you will know what you really like, and anyone saying otherwise is a fool.
It is the reason I cannot stress enough to avoid /mu/. They will try to convince you there are rules.
Music does not have rules.
>you will never sound like a demon being raped
Talking Heads is top tier autism music
Metal like that often scares people away from the entire genre for good.
People can't grasp the concept that not every human can produce that noise, which is by definition a talent.
People are also easily scared, and often only listen to music for "partying".
Here's my autistic remedy.
Figure out what genre of music you're listening to from these OSTs.
Go to youtube, type it in.
There should be a top ten or playlist or whatever. Doesn't really matter, just listen to a bunch of stuff with a lot of views casually while doing chores or something. You'll eventually hear something that makes you stop or grabs your attention or you legitimately like, whatever the case write down the name of the artists or bands. Now rinse and repeat by listening to their top 10s. If you find the majority of their sound appeals to your complete lack of taste begin listening to their catalogue as a whole.
Of course with this you'll never encounter unknown, underground, or super obscure shit but that's not really important at the moment. You're not interested in that now so it's doubtful even if you did come across it you'd be able to appreciate it. You have to stomach mild chilli before you crave higher heat.
So I suggest this pleb style approach because it guarantees you go into whatever genre with immediate interest from the "best"
that's most popular, entry level, surface media among the masses for those who can't read irony and sarcasmstuff and as such there's a lot of eagerness to keep listening and anticipation to get to that point that impressed you while listening to their earlier material assuming their earlier material isn't their most popular and therefore your "peak", because then you're fuckedin anticipation.
Done enough and you might develop a hack version of critical eye since you're always listening to everything comparatively instead of just as a fan so you should be able to identify the difference in pace, style, instruments, etc used until it hits that litmus point.
If all else fails just do what people did back in the day, turn on the radio on any of your devices and let come what may. They'll sell you the right idea eventually.
You mean like I've been doing for years? In brace it, man.
I'm in a band. I Own 3 guitars, 1 Bass guitar, a yamaha synthesizer and an actual metronome that requires slide adjustment.
You are very clearly one of those elitist faggots from /mu/ I'm trying to warn him about.
Thanks for ruining my hearing faggot
This is it. This is the fucking darkest music can go.
Fuck you I had my volume on max
>Trying to introduce people to any genre of Metal
Dude this will literally never work unless they already listen to Metal.
I'm not trying to argue anything or flaunt my own taste or whatever, I'm just trying to make you understand your excercise in futility.
>Uncle visiting family home for christmas
>Offer to drive him to the airport
>Forget I left my ipod in there and its connected to the car radio
>"ha ha lets see what music you like kiddo!"
>He flicks through the playlist it was last one
>Nothing but high pitched girls from youtube singing covers and parodies of gaming and anime songs (Jubyphonic, katethegreat, lilypichu, nyanners)
>He coughs awkwardly and switches it off
>We sit in complete silence for the rest of the journey
>This is the fucking darkest music can go.
Yes, beautiful, you own instruments, that does not make you a musician.
Do post your band's music though, I'm sure the reason why you're posting on the videogame's board about music will make itself clear then, if it hasn't already.
If you think I'm going to give up my anonymity to proof a point to some hipster faggot, you can think again.
Proceed with your butthurt and "see I'm better than you" post. Because I'm here for the OP not some hostile /mu/ refugee.
>With a group of literal whos during a shared lunch

Being weird wasn't a problem for me, it was not knowing how to be normal.
Then Hikaru went and shattered my delusions further getting engaged to her producer, then later marrying a bartender.
I should have foresaken the Otaku life!
Do you really think I'm going to greatly elaborate on why I like something as subjective as a music album to someone who opens up with 'It's a shitty album, you idiot.' and 'It's a shitty album, you idiot.'?
There's a weird air of elitism in this thread.
What are some gaming music I could listen to the gym? Something that pumps you up.
Also, you guys are pretty insure. I let my normie friends listen to my gaming music collection and they think it's pretty cool.
>No pause for life
The only way out is further in.
I mostly listen to video game music because I dislike most songs with lyrics.
I like imagining things while I listen and hearing people sing about things I don't care about hinders my ability to do that somewhat.
>mfw 90% of my albums are game/anime OST or other weebshit
Just listen to whatever you like anon, nobody is going to care.
Here is my list, guys. You can make fun of me if you want but it's awesome. I listen to this while gymming.
They give me goosebumps.
>not knowing how to be normal
I'll help you out. In order to be normal, you need to not have any interests or tastes of your own. You need to watch television and go to whichever movies which are popular, and then emulate what they teach about how to dress, how to speak, and what to think. Then you need to circlejerk about this with a group of people who you can never have a deep discussion with because there are too many people who keep changing the subject. Also, don't forget sports. Spend hours of your time watching people throw and kick balls around, and then discuss about how well they kicked and threw those balls with your multitude of friends, none of which you have any sort of meaningful friendship with because none of you have passionate interests you can share other than in an extremely shallow way. You need to not have any complex opinions about anything, you need to keep yourself ignorant on everything ranging from history to art to politics, and you need to be primarily occupied with getting drunk, high, or laid.
Being normal is so great u gais.
Emotion my ass, it's the whiniest, most unlistenable voice on the planet. If there was ever anything that was cringe-inducing, it's Jeff Mangum's vocals.
It's at least "listenable" as an instrumental album — though there is literally nothing to be creaming oneself about as much as that album, it's the safest, most bland shit ever.
I'd rather be listening to Thee Silver Mt. ZIon if I want shit heartfelt vocals.
Again — his influences > his music.
>Mutyumu on my /v/
I haven't found anything like them desu, they're pretty unique. Maybe check out some stuff like Mono (the Japanese band), but make sure you listen to all of Mutyumu's albums first. Definitely check out their self-titled (pic related) after you listen to ilya (the album you posted).
>Blind Guardian wrote a song for Sacred 2: Fallen Angel
>I couldn't really care less about the game but the song is incredible as always
Strange feeling. They should get more RPG work though, they have a nice flare for the fanciful.
We can all agree this is his best album, right?
I didn't like ITAOTS on the first listen either. Or Loveless. Or MPP. They'll all pretty good. Glad I gave them all a 2nd chance. Especially Loveless. They're all /mu/ meme albums.
>tfw video game OST, classic rock, 90's Jpop and future funk playlist
I should die in a fire
>I refer to autism as assburgers
Wow, underage too.
Are you fucking serious? I knew Loveless was an amazing album on first listen, that does not belong next to MPP/ITAOTS.
No wonder you force yourself to like dogshit to fit in /mu/, get some taste my man.
You know you can like literally anything if you listen to it enough, right?
Do you people try to be this retarded?
>You know you can like literally anything if you listen to it enough, right?
>Do you people try to be this retarded?
But you can't
Anon maybe you should just stop thinking that you're the be all and end all of human intelligence and taste and that you know everything
It makes you look pretty fucking stupid
>not listening to Brian Eno's ambient work
There's a large amount of his music in drive, oddly enough
>not listening to music from artists you know from video games
Nice. The outright worst group of people are Classicalfags. Worse than poptimists, metalfags, dadrockers and jazz elitists combined.
Good job sucking /mu/ dick.
Yes, you can. That's LITERALLY how acquired taste. Really — do you have Down's? Actual Down's, not just the imageboard kind?
Yes there is, your post-modernist meme is dogshit. You can keep throwing buzzwords and buzzphrases around like "It's all ~subjective~ man, please accept my garbage taste and my garbage music"
If you can accept the very idea that idiocy and ignorance exists (and you should, knowing you're an idiot) then you can accept the idea that someone who is both an idiot and ignorant has to have worse taste in things than someone with non-room temperature IQ.
You are literally the reason for the death of standards.
besides maybe LISA what is
The Money Store of videogame OST's?
>they hate everything popular
Confirmed for having never been on /mu/
People don't hate them because they hate popular things. People hate them because they love weird shit and call everything else "entry level" ), even though entry level isn't necessarily a bad thing
Listening to more music.
Literally just go to sound cloud, listen to radio, save whatever you like.
It more autistic to care so badly about what other people think about your private thoughts on music.
>having an iPod
>letting people who don't share your tastes handle your music selection
>talking to plebs about your music tastes
I'll talk about vidya. I'll talk about anime. I'll get into books and short stories. I'll discuss film and series and get into favorites and all that good shit. But I won't talk about music.
>havent gotten a new favorite song in nearly a decade
I just realized I barely listen to music, and when I do its always the same ~300 songs that I've listened to since I was a teenager.
Huh, strange thing not to notice about yourself. Gradual change, I guess.
>No poster of the art from the money store album
Shit. I like that art.
What's with you fags and vidya music being somehow unacceptable? Shit at work I've been listening to the Jazz arranged version of Nier's OST.
Most of the best working composers can be found doing soundtracks for various media. Akira Yamaoka comes to mind, Theme of Laura and One More Soul to the Call are frequent in my playlists. I'll go through hours of Yoko Kanno's work from series I've never even seen because she's goddamned brilliant. Marty O'Donnel did some stuff for Halo that I'll probably be listening to for decades to come because as the games age, the music doesn't.
I don't see the point of trying to avoid artists who do soundtracks when the ones who do are outclassing most other professional musicians. Shit, Gustavo Santaolalla was a famed composer of film scores and a well known guitarist before he did vidya, and The Last of Us' OST was better than any actual film OST I'd heard in years.
A working musician is a working musician. There's nothing that sets all the dumb niggers clawing at each other for radio play and iTunes buys apart from the people who get hired to score big media releases...other than talent, creativity, and the ability to work without being bogged down by current top 40 trends and other assorted horse shit.
>dislike video game music because it is repetitive and formulaic
>recommend popular music
There's like nothing popular on that board besides widely popular radio rap and "indie" rock that pretends to be niche but is actually super popular among the millions of faggots pretending to be niche.
They actually went through this massive shift where they went from hating everything popular to hating hipsters jumping on the bandwagon to hating what those hipsters like to just straight up liking the top 40 consumer shit and calling you a fedora tipper for not doing so yourself.
Shit I mentioned I liked Rush and was just instantly called out as a fedora tipper. I don't understand. Rush isn't even really obscure, at fucking all, they're pretty huge at this point. I just wanted to talk about muh trio but if it isn't a rapper or Neutral Milk Hotel you can just forget about it.
>They actually went through this massive shift where they went from hating everything popular to hating hipsters jumping on the bandwagon to hating what those hipsters like to just straight up liking the top 40 consumer shit and calling you a fedora tipper for not doing so yourself.
/mu/ is a magical place
How do you even call that, post post-ironic hipsterism?
Similar, anon. Similar. My frequent listening looks something like
>anime OSTs (mostly Yoko Kanno because based)
>The Mars Volta
>vidya OSTs (mostly O'Donnell, Yamaoka, and Nier's OST)
>assorted classical, Blue Oyster Cult, Judas Priest, Steve Vai, Malmsteen, Man-O-War, some Satch, maybe a couple Peter Gabriel movie OSTs, Queensryche, I can't name it all
I'm all over the damn place, but no matter what it is I happen to like, it's not /mu/ approved. Like clockwork. Nothing I listed would go over well in that Hell hole.
Some of my favorite albums took repeated listens and a lot of time for me to love.
When I first heard Deloused in the Comatorium I thought it was way too chaotic, just a cacophony of loud, disjointed rock. Now I can't get enough TMV.
