"Self-obliterating aural-suicide". I think this is a great description of the sound. It seems that the vocalist is being bludgeoned by the electronics (technology) until he has dissolved into it by the second half of the album. At the start, he's so angry, desparate, and sounds frantic to the point of fear. The band are destroying their vocal aggressive confidence with an onslaught of sound. By the end, he's beaten into submission. Then, the album culminates with "whatever I want (fuck who's watching)". This is Ride's last attempt, lashing out for survival. He shouts "fuck who's watching!" in vain as the instrumental stacks layers of sparkling keys on top of the throbbing bass, until his cries are drowned out. You'll recall that he appears to be lying dead in bed at the end of the video.

I haven't listened to a more conceptual album in the past decade. If there are any that come close to this, please post them in this thread. Thank you

all their albums are conceptual!
but yeah, this one is super fucking interesting.
one of the most peculiar things ive noticed is the difference between the track listing of this album and all previous albums
>>
>>53781761
Yes I would venture to say "Niggas On The Moon" is just as conceptual. What do you mean by the tracklisting? The number of tracks or the titles of the individual tracks themselves?

>>53781690
Yeah, man. The themes of depersonalization and technological take over really interest me. It actually reminds of of OK Computer and Kid A, but thematically updated for the new decade.

>>53781796
number of tracks. dg has referenced the number 13 several times in their music, and 11 once (in hacker)
>>
>>53781854
I find the sound of NOTM to be their most futuristic, coldly electronic sonic palette to date. They do something similar with Bjork's voice as they had done to Ride's in GP, but even more extreme. The lyric "she's your experience, you're her experiment" is from the twisted, stuttering, and catchy pop song that is Billy Not Really. Ride says something like "She turning telly through the shriveled button pressed jaundiced yellow," as you might find on an overused tv remote. It's owner is a vegetated ex-human whose attention span has been destroyed by information, so he is perpetually changing the channel with the same button. You're her experiment; she's your experience. Probably my favorite release of theirs. What did you all think about it?

>>53781969
woah thats wild bro.
it is their best so far. JD will probably beat it the fuck out in terms of hype and reaction, but in the end every dg album has a special place and NotM will definitely be remembered as the album where they literally went to the fucking moon :D
