Face it, Gloss Drop is really the point where the band honed their craft and focused their ideas on creating a cohesive math pop album. Mirrored was too scatterbrained.
This album is their most "safe" album yeah, but dear god it's great
Deafheaven? I know this is a silly comparison but I can see it occupying a space similar to Loveless: admired by many afficionados and "more knowledgeable" people but the popular public is generally unaware of it.
Probably the most interesting album to consider. I'm eagerly awaiting the future to see how it will be remembered.
Isn't modern classics something that is considered a classic album in modern times? Something like London Calling or The Velvet Underground & Nico? Wouldn't you all be referring int his thread to future classics?
don't start guys, you'll fuck this thread up
i agree tho, if anything Yeezus takes the cake here
in the underground/indie scene at least:
Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
Tame Impala - Lonerism
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Before Today
Madlib x Freddie Gibbs - Piñata
The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream
Aphex Twin - Syro
Mac DeMarco - 2
The Books - The Lemon of Pink
>Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma

this album was so not memorable, still good
>Aphex Twin - Syro
aphex twin yes, syro maybe as it's his last release in the genre
>Mac DeMarco - 2
>The Books - The Lemon of Pink
Although I like all those albums I mentioned, an album getting a classic status depends more on the listeners than the actual quality. Lost in the Dream has been pretty big and I'd say Mac DeMarco is booming now.
he said he was done with the genre and that was the reason he was releasing Syro, to give closure while he works on his new sound.
the way he said it, i don't think it will sound anything like what we've heard, for better or worse.
thats actually a good question. RAM didn't resonate with old Daft Punk fans a lot but if tumblr audiences stick to their tastes this might be a classic someday. if thats the case then there is a possibility of Born to Die and AM becoming classics too, but I doubt it.
It's a lyrical masterpiece. The way he tackles the themes with such class and sentimentality really contrasts with the mainstream hip-hop artists of the era. That with his coming out of the closet before the album dropped broke a lot of stereotypes.
The music itself is really interesting too, the soulful falsetto singing mixed with rap and really repetitive beats while still keeping the songs interesting was done beautifully. Everyone started doing the soulful falsetto thing for a while.
New Beyoncé clearly was influenced by him, I don't think artists like Cakes da Killa or Childish Gambino would have gained so much traction without channel ORANGE.
>If it doesn't occupy a position in popular culture it obvious isn't a fucking modern classic.
i think we're doing future /mu/core or even future lewronggeneration-core, not really Madonna kind of classic.
I can respect that. I wasn't trying to knock the album because I really like it and I guess the influence of it falls short because I don't really listen to the artists you mentioned.
Hell no. The closest thing to a classic that I see right now is When the Heart Emerges Glistening. Not to say there aren't plenty that I like better, but the fact is that almost nobody pays any attention to modern jazz.
love it or hate it, this is gonna be a defining pop album for this decade
As it has been said all of this thread:
Nobody gives a shit about your so special taste in music.
It literally has no bearing in what makes a modern classic.
I fucking hate Pinkerton, but it is a modern classic. Same with many classic rock records. I can acknowledge they are classics without liking them.
Quit your b8.
The most famous and hated celebrity on the planet goes into hiding after stealing the moment from America's sweetheart on live TV to make and release one of the most critically acclaimed albums of all time that just so happens to be about how toxic the culture of celebrity is.
its absolutely not easier to get into. it's so much more noisy and syncopated than nldw. the only reason why it's more popular is because of fandango.. and maybe because it came out before nldw
Ok so why are you more qualified to judge the quality of music than critics that dedicate their lives to music?
I'm not defending critics mind you but I'm honestly curious to hear your answer

Holy shit, /mu/ isn't synonymous with real life people, go out more. Lel Kanye fans are some of the most deranged posters on this site
