Why not? Should artists just let their good ideas be forgotten? If they have to money to record it why shouldn't they?
>>
>>55521841
To cover up his/her/their mediocrity.

Examples: Merzbow, R. Stevie Moore, Buckethead, Viper etc.
>>
>>55521916
I agree. you got to money in this life, then to die.
>>
>>55521996
Has anyone been far even?
>>
>>55521916
They should take their best songs and ideas and put them on a few albums.

If you release too much stuff you have zero credibility as an artist.

>Viper has released over 1000 albums

How? How has he done that? Are they all different songs? Has anyone tried listening to them all?
>>
>>55522157
I think they're all the same song just with different synth intros
>>
>>55522157
they're all the same songs in different orders. he doesn't have nearly that much material

I've heard from someone who worked with him he is just a legite cool dude who everybody likes. I think they just let him do what he wants cause he is a chill guy.
>>
>>55521979
>Buckethead
Dude, he's technically the most gifted performer there is.

Sure, his music mainly takes technicality over actual feels, but you know what, some of us like that, at least from time to time.

Mozart was a composing and melodic genius. Buckethead is a trained monkey.

>I think they're all the same song
This; I listened to a handful of intro tracks of his on Spotify in rapid succession and he just uses the same songs under different sames and different melodies. Going through Vip's discog with a friend makes for a side-splitting experience.
>>
>>55522058
that's not that uncommon

>>55521900
Wow my pic was reposted, feels good man :)

I don't really have an issue with this, it's kinda fun to try and listen to a good amount of albums by an artist like Buckethead or Viper.

Buckethead is great, although I haven't listened to any of the pikes in depth, he used to release multiple albums a year that were still pretty high quality.

Viper is okay, but most of his albums consist of the exact same songs just with slightly different synths or lyrics, whatever.

It's not like anyone is forcing you to listen to every single Buckethead pike though, just listen to his good stuff from before he went crazy and started recording an album every week.
>>
>>55521841
Are you one of those faggots who think people should only be allowed to make 2 or 3 albums and then be forced to find "actual jobs"? Fuck you.
>>
i like it when artists release a bunch of albums. the only kind of person that that would bother must not have an interesting inner life.
>>
Buckethead and Viper when?
>>
>>55522873
He has solid ideas but I've skimmed through some of his albums from that numbered series and it honestly sounds like he just recorded himself noodling at a practice session over prerecorded demo-track drums. He's talented but the music is so lifeless, it's like something you'd here in a pedal demo. Generic riffing, generic leads, bland drum pattern.

>>55521900
Is he the Jandek of hip hop?
>>
>>55521900

you understand it's a scam right???

most of his albums are the same song with 12 different titles, same albums with different covers etc etc

guy is 100% scammer
>>
>>55525134
He harasses people on Twitter DM to give him money
>>
>>55521900

dude has like 10 actual songs with 500 different titles
>>
Just stay away from the Pikes and most of his stuff is amazing. Population Override, Bucketheadland 2, idk man too hight for this but he rocks, really. V
>>
>>55525124
jandek only releases like 1 or 2 a year my man
>>
>>55525460

>released a lot of music
>all of it sounds the same

>>55521841
400 albums and not one of them is good, that takes talent
>>
>>55525691
why on earth did you listen to all of them?
>>
it's because they're all shit. no one can release that many albums of any actual quality work
