ITT: albums that are far too long, but you wouldn't make them any shorter because all the tracks are great
Also, Spanish Key is obviously the best track.
Maybe remove starfuckers but aside from that
OP here. This is the second album I was thinking of when I made this thread. I usually leave a rest between each disc when I listen to the full thing but it's still tiring sometimes.
Yea I saw the title and it was first thing to come to mind. I think it's admirable that the entire thing is lacking filler, but it is a lot in one sitting.
Agree with these, all good albums though of course.
I'm not a musicologist or anything, but there's this repeated part in Spanish Key where it sounds like the chords underneath are changing or something while the rest of the music stays exactly the same, but it has this really great effect where it creates these cool dissonances and puts it into a different context.
I could be describing it wrongly, but I really like the way it sounds.
Oh well excuse me. Is it my fault Scaruffi got so shallow interest in music? I just make fun of him cause it's the fair thing to do. He's not trying hard enough, and the same goes for his followers: Lazy, cowards, always in their comfort zone when talking about music.
>it's not a flaw in the album, it's a flaw on the listener
what does this even mean? It makes no sense. Are you saying a listener can be wrong? Are you saying every listener can be wrong and a completely hated album can actually be amazing?
You're an idiot as well.
>flaw on the listener
What there didn't make sense/was pretentious?
An album can be 100% perfect but 10 hours long. If I don't like it because of it's length, it's my fault that I'm not willing to put the time in...
that's the exact opposite of what I'm saying.
I'm just saying an album being too long isn't a fair criticism if it's full of high quality content.
Doesn't really bother me.
but an album can't be objectively good. Music isn't objective. The listener decides whether or not they like it.
That's like saying oh wow this sandwich is amazing I just don't like the way it tastes.
i doubt he means it's the listeners fault.
i think he meant to say to the listener its a flaw, as in, because time is relative, whether an album is too long or not is dependent on the person listening
