What's some more good music for pretending you have "high" taste?

Is this just a variation of the posercore meme? Pretty weak.

almost all those albums are actually good, some being superb.

There is a lot wrong with it when people like this claim they like Jazz or Classical music, or claim to be knowledgeable of it, when this consists of their taste.
>>
post good minimalism then mr. patrician
>>
>>55640134
agreed, completely pathetic
>>
>>55640185
That is good Minimalism, save the Richter and somewhat the Eastman.

The point is that people claim to listen to classical music, when those are the only albums they are exposed to.

Oh so this is a circlejerk where you get to show how "patrician" you are.

Fantastic, we really needed more aimless garbage on this board instead of music discussion.
>>
>>55640179
Who are you even referring to? Some stereotype you've conjured up in your own mind?

It's easy to accuse people who listen to certain music of being superficial, whereas you're being completely authentic with your listening habits of course.

Pointless bait.

GUYS

there is absolutely nothing wrong with any of these albums themselves.

HOWEVER

these particular albums are often used by people who wish to bolster their projected intelligence and those who would claim deep knowledge of something simply by nature of knowing these albums.

DO NOT get upset if you like these albums. stop being so sensitive guys. you alone are the reason things like this exist, because you are vocal about being offended.

calm down.

>>55640281

What if people find the albums to be the best in their genre - which could be a genuine explanation for why they're talked about so much.

>>55640179

I'm telling you that what you're describing doesn't exist and you've made this up in your head.

It seriously poses more questions about your own insecurities.

""Jazz serves a cultural function in the music scene. It is a signifier for musical 'adulthood'. To embrace jazz is to don a kind of graduation cap, signifying a broadening of tastes outside 'mere' rock music. This ostentatious display of 'sophistication' is an insult, and I find the graduation cappers transparent and tedious. Certainly there must be interesting music one could call 'jazz'. There must be. I've never heard it."

-- Steve Albini on jazz

"Because it sucks and I'm tired of hearing about it. Believe me I've tried. I just hate the parts I hate about it more than I like the little things there are to like. The batting average is just so low I can't bear the dead time between highlights being filled with all that noodling. It's vain music."

How, exactly? A normal person says "well, that's it, 10/10 A+ ***** best album ever i will stop listening to music now"?
I don't think so.

Dunno why other posters doth protest so much, the concept of using art to build an identity shouldn't be revelatory.

The coincidental albums chosen don't necessitate their lack of quality, but rather the opposite (in most cases) with how the layman gravitates toward them. The issues comes in those making value-claims without at least acknowledging the need of assessing where the work stands in a larger sociohistoric strata, for one, which is gained by digging into a genre beyond the surface level canon. Hence the issue at hand.

you guys are really sensitive over these threads
>>
>>55640848
>you guys are really sensitive over these threads
It's almost as if they apply under this definition and don't think they do.
>>
>>55640848

Well, people have to start somewhere and because these albums are propped up by so many people who do know about the genre they also become the easiest to find for entry level fans looking to expand their tastes. The pretense you carry yourself with is palpable
>>
>>55640848
You're still missing the point.

Singling out specific albums for this makes no sense because people listen to all kinds of music for image. Everything from the Beatles to Mozart to Faust to Albert Ayler.

You can easily dismiss anyone's opinion as "poser" or "pseud" or "hipster" but it's almost always uncalled for.
>>
The point we have against this. You're all still missing it.

We'll go through it step by step.

>Why might an album be regarded as entry level?

Most Accessible? Possibly, but a lot of the time it's because they are regarded as one of the best in the genre.

>Then if it is one of the best in the genre it may gain popularity, thus appealing to more people.

Leading to more people referencing and recommending the album, and it becomes one of the staples of the genre.

>So? People should just go out of their way to not talk about their favourite albums in that genre, and talk about less referenced albums that they don't like as much?

Well that's just pointless
>>
>>55641168
Wrong, it's that people have only listened to these albums and yet still claim to "love" Jazz or Classical.

By the way, those Classical releases aren't even close to the best, idiot.
>>
>>55641212
Do you have autism?
>>
>>55641212
Again, those people are a stereotype you've conjured up in your own mind.

Unless people actually come out and say "I'm a jazz aficionado and I only know Miles, Coltrane and Mingus", which basically never happens, it's pointless to accuse people of this shit.

Do you seriously not know what fucking retarded neo-/mu/ will do with this kind of shitty chart though? Huh?

They'll see these albums posted, and then a growing stigma against these perfectly fine fucking albums will grow, and they'll forever be stuck in pleb/memedom and our enjoyment of them will slowly deteriorate.

And for what?

Because we can't be bothered to identify when someone has shot taste in genre and tell them they do?

>>55641316
That's what I'm saying. You're using this concept to dismiss anyone who enjoys these albums rather than because you know for a fact these albums are the only ones they listen to in their respective genres.

Of course they're going to be popular. They're entry level. That doesn't mean anyone who prefers and entry level album is "pretending"
>>
>>55641364
You still haven't proven that you have magic powers allow you to read people's minds as to know why they posted an album as their favorite

Oh. I get it. It's bait. Never-mind!
>>
>>55641168
Except not gaining context on a work by tackling what paradigms it operates in can only give so limited an understanding of it. Art *can* be interpreted in a vacuum, but this should not be the only modality that it's understood in (if a person means to ever critically think about it) because it necessarily is a part of a larger conversation.

You're skipping the step in between being referenced a popular work and calling it your favorite in serious discussion regarding art music, which is thinking about why you like it beyond "feels".

>at least people are calling you out on your shit.
Nah, they're butthurt because they fall under my definition.

>>55641505
So you can't call them your favourite albums because they're entry level?

Even if you've gone through said paradigms?
>>
>>55641576
Nah, they're calling OP out on their shit. Besides, what's the value in defining something as almost meaningless a criticism (or maybe you prefer the term witticism) as pseudo-intellectual?

To be honest Kind of Blue, Bitches Brew, BSATSL, and Mingus Ah Um are GOAT. But I agree, they attract alot of pseudo intellectual scum.

You're only assuming people haven't done that based solely on the fact that they enjoy popular albums.

The issue I have is that this concept is often used as a cheap way to dismiss the opinions of anyone who prefers entry level records for whatever reason.

It's nice that you say "well I'm not talking about those people", but how can you distinguish them from the superficial ones? What's the point? People listen to all kinds of music for image and unless you're a mind reader you can't really tell who. I'm sure there are plenty of people who listen to the fucking Beatles to seem cool or knowledgable.
