What did /mu/ think of this album?
I gave up on Metallica long before St. Anger but I'm half way through pic related and I'm presently surprised so far.
it's not bad. the songs are kinda long, but whatever.
people give it shit for being "brick walled" and mastered horribly, but like think about it - you think metallica didn't want it to sound like that? and if they didn't, it wouldn't.
Is there a name for this aesthetic?
why do people do this

What are your most contrarian opinions, /mu/?
I think Anthony Kiedis is an amazing vocalist and lyricist and Patton had it coming and deserved what he got

Post your favorite obscure bands/albums. I'll start with a few favorites of mine.
Fucking love that album. Some of the best artwork I've seen. Didn't really like their sludgier follow up though, sounded too much like all the other sludgy screamo bands out there. Check out Premonitions Says EP by Piles and Piles, really good emo/math rock/shoegaze crossover OP.
Basing relationship prospects on musical taste is stupid.
What makes half of you 'friend-zoned' dudes think that you deserve the hot indie chick? Get over this "scotty pilgrim" complex of pining over the manic pixie dream girl.

Chicks that like bad music suck dick just as good, probably better.

Included is just one of the many gems in the Beach Boys catalog. When will the general public wake up to the fundamental advances to popular music put forth by Brian Wilson? His work has already amassed notable repertoire over the decades by maestros such as Leonard Bernstein. Brian's more savvy, counter-culture influenced, mid 60s work such as Pet Sounds and the eluding SMiLE are already highly regarded as pieces of the 20th century western art music tradition.
Popular music forever will owe a currently unpaid return favor to Brian Wilson, for his groundbreaking modular production methods, musique concrete-esque compositions, and entrance of multiple new instruments into its corridor, including the electric theremin.
>Poetic, beautiful even in its obscurity, Surf’s Up is one aspect of new things happening in pop music today. As such, it is a symbol of the change many of these young musicians see in our future.
>Now what does all this mean? I think it’s all part of a historic revolution, one that has been going on for 50 years – only now these young people have gotten control of a mass medium, the phonograph record. And the...

People underestimate just how much SMiLE, released for Chirstmas 1966 could have changed public perception of capabilities and limiations of the entire medium of popular music.
It was generating talk like no other. This was ready to get the Beach Boys immediately put to serious discussion in every music hall, observatory, you name it, from LA to London.
SMiLE even has evidence of contaiting musique conrete, it sends my penis into a raging fury ever time I hear the drill loops in "Workshop"
