>itp: bands that were ahead of big black
Really? Let's dissect the following sentence:
"Passing Complextion is basically a 90's rave in noise rock form, but everything else is of its time."
The first phrase suggests that Passing Complexion is not ahead of its time due to the inclusion of the qualifier "but". This word "but" suggests that Passing Complexion is not ahead of its time whereas everything else on the album is.
I'll take the lack of response from you retards as a grovelling apology and a promise never again to try to call someone out on something without first making sure you know what the fuck you're talking about.
He just wasn't made for those times
Daily reminder that this was released in 1966:
Like what the fuck, this is the same year as The White Album and Bookends, the only album anywhere near pushing the boundaries of music like this was 'We're Only In It for the Money' by The Mothers of Invention.
This and their first album were incredibly ahead of their time
Trout Mask Replica
Yes, even though this album isn't quite as good as the ones they did without the rhythm section. Despite the fact that the guitarist tells an original your mom joke on the best track. But man, these guys were something else for their time.
He's saying that only Passing Complexion is ahead of its time.
OP said "everything else is of its time" yet you quoted him as saying "everything else is ahead of its time"
No man, Blood on the Moon is just an indiscernible mess of goth-rock-metal, and Third from the Sun actually has several good songs, but they're in a completely style, a sort of proto-nu-metal. Or rather, these two albums are in a single style, while the Soundtracks-Moves-Exposure trilogy is just a wild experiment with everything from psychedelia to industrial to dub to glam rock. And it sounds so busy, so inventive, so commanding, that there's just nothing like it, or at least wasn't in the last century. I mean, the intro to Pygmies in Zee Park alone is just more powerful and scarier than anything on Third From the Sun.
This is the first album that does the emo sound IMO. Before rites of spring and their contemporaries. I don't know why this album is so underrated.
Doesn't ahead of their time usually imply they weren't properly appreciated while they were around? That punk band Death would be ahead of their time, because they were just a few years too early to ride the wave the Ramones made, for example. Most of the bands posted here were just innovative and influential, and defined what "their time" was
Nah. Blood on the Moon is the tastiest soundtrack to cyberpunk ever produced. Insect Human and the title track are sublime pieces of noise. Up until Half Machine Lip Moves they didn't have a clue what they were doing. Unpolished, raw with amateur production. And with the addition of the Stench Brothers is when they made amazing Industrial Rock.
this album sounds like the product of a fine art student's attempt at making a fame-grab genre like sea-punk or witchhouse.
i know this sounds negative but i love this album
i'd love for someone to show me something that came beore this that sounded anything like it
