Swans - The Seer
FlyLo - Cosmogramma

my personal favorite Time Machines II would probably be a contender too but it is way too new to decide, needs more listens

I feel the same way with Man Bites Dog - Noir. Its the only album i really liked from this year but this year is pretty weak

can we stop assuming people who like albums that got a good review on Pitchfork are drones who can't form opinions? Albums aren't only given to Pitchfork and readers of Pitchfork. It is possible to like these albums without the insights of Pitchfork. I didn't even discover Sunbather through Pitchfork.

Speaking of albums of the decade....

You're a troll if you think Kid A is even in the same league as pic related
>>
>>51455065
What do you mean by "too rock-y"? Do you mean it sounds too commercial and not as artsy or alternative as their other work?
>>
>>51455394
None of those albums are quality enough to be the greatest album of the decade.
>>51455396
Yeah, Kid A is in a much more mature league for more focused and non-cheesy art.
>>
>>51455415
yeah, not enough alternative or artsy influences.

I think Face Tat is going to retroactively be considered one of the most influential albums of the decade.

It is a stagnant genre. There's literally no point in listening to those bands, let alone considering them the best of the decade. Whirr is to shoegaze as Explosions in the Sky are to post-rock. Or the Black Keys are to blues rock.

No one is actually going to remember any of that shit you posted. It's all disposable. I think you're trying too hard to make your list unique.

Not really. Anyone can take jazz and swing and translate those ideas into post-electro-dance-whatever. tbh I'm surprised it hasn't been done before.

It isn't bad it's just a bit, corny and dull. Calling it the best album of the decade is asinine. It will have no influence whatsoever. It's niche, just like the releases from those Japanese MBV clones you posted.

All of these are mediocre shoegaze bands that rip from MBV and other popular shoegaze bands either directly or indirectly.

Shoegaze will always be inferior music because everything every band in the genre sets out to accomplish has been done before by better musicians. It is cheesy. Not all Japanese music is cheesy, but most shoegaze is.

Is this seriously the best you can do? This is your attempt at "legitimate criticism"? Please never discuss music again.

Yes, correct. No one would consider a 6.68 among the best of the decade.

Is Franz Berwald ever considered the greatest Romantic composer of his time? No. He wrote good music but compared to the other musicians of his time, he was ordinary, undistinctive. Likewise with Stamitz, Pleyel, and all manner of classical era composers.

Because all art criticsim is referential and based upon personal experience, uniqueness, and/or talent. How is mine any less arbitrary than yours?

There is clearly more going on with one album than another in that one is more minimalist and one is more jazz, why does Kid A break over into being good enough to be interesting?

I don't get why they get so much hate. They have a great blend of post-rock and ambient influence, their guitar tone and mixing is spot-on, their songwriting actually has forward progression, which is valuable in a genre that relies on verse-chorus structure too much. Uninteresting shoegaze bands to me would be Cheatahs, Conheartist, Swervedriver, She Sir, or A Sunny Day in Glasgow.

Whirr has more variation in guitar tone than No Joy, ranging from ethereal to noisy. Both No Joy and Whirr use the latter in much the same way, but Whirr knows when to change it up and include guitar interplay or let the bass take precedence over guitar.

>Whirr has more variation in guitar tone than No Joy

Have you actually ever even listened to No Joy holy fucking shit. They change up their guitar sound on almost every song on Wait 2 Pleasure. I agree that Ghoste Blonde is a little monotonous. But with whirr its like their guitar same guitar tone is consistent across the board with each release they put out which in turn make everything they make sound the exact same. No Joy is taking steps forward while Whirr is just staying stagnant on the same ideas theyve had for the past couple years.

It's not though. The neurotic person fixates on and worries about very minor things, like his friends posting last.fm 3x3's and a bunch of strangers on a board intended for talking shit, talking shit about his favorite album.
>>
>>51457900
>>51458973

>>51459196
I'm not worried about people talking shit about the album. It's just an album I consider close to my identity, and I don't really get anything out of sharing it with other people. Seeing a bunch of people (especially people I don't respect) loving it would probably change the way I feel about the album and I don't want that.

Guitar tone was the wrong term. I should've said the way they played the guitar. Keep by Whirr is a good example of their variation from dynamic ambient playing to repetitive noisy playing. It seems the guitar in No Joy is always for the sake of creating a wall of sound.

Really? The way each instrument is layered on in the first couple minutes is anything but wall of sound. They wait to use that so there's more power behind it, transitioning between them with feedback before returning to the softer playing. No Joy uses wall of sound much more liberally in comparison.
>>51459731
It's not really the songs that are monotonous so much as the album itself. Have you listened to the Distressor EP? Much more variety between tracks.
