What's the worst genre of music?
WHEN IT'S COOOOOOOOOOLD
Welcome to the third /mu/ Classical Blindfold Test thread
The point of these threads is to have fun and encourage critical listening, discussion, and general enjoyment of music. All critical music listeners are welcome. The more participation we have, the more fun and successful these threads will be.
For more information about how the threads work and listening suggestions, you can refer to the pastebin of the Jazz blindfold listening threads, which inspired this endeavour http://pastebin.com/UiCCG28N

COMPILED BY: Montezaffiro

1. Hear My Prayer O Lord - Henry Purcell
Choir of King's College, dir. Willcocks
One of Purcell's finest works. The increasingly plaintive cries from the choir build and build until the final resolution. The double choir setting also allows for a thicker texture in the build-up
2. Violin Concerto in E-flat major ' La Tempesta di Mare', Op. 8 No. 5, RV 253 - I. Presto
Andrew Manze, The Academy of Ancient Music
Quite obviously Vivaldi. Doesn't fall prey to what is often one of Vivaldi's major failings (great start, then falls apart). Manze's Vivaldi is quite spectacular too.
These are the greatest singers ever.
Find a flaw.
how do you think Annie Clark's (aka St. Vincent) skyrocketing middle aged libido will influence her future works?
Anyone here listen to any? Its a thriving genre bringing the energy and passion which died in US hip hop years ago.
uk drill to be specific is producing fire atm, i prefer it to chicago drill.
opinions? I can recommend some bangers
ITT you're going to post a band and then give them an opposite name.
>Neutral Milk Hotel
>Biased Cheese Hostel
What is he screaming at?
prove me wrong
Nope, you're right
A lot of /mu/ users have this fallacy that just because something's harder to get into that it must be better. It's the reason Trout Mask Replica's rated so much higher than say Safe as Milk even though the latter is better. I like both a lot, but The Great Annihilator's definitely better.
>FLIGHT 2-2 IS OFF TO HONOLULU
>ask her what music she likes
>"oh yeah I'm really into music, I like indie"
>ask her favorite bands
>twenty one pilots, Melanie Martinez, arctic monkeys
You have exactly 10 seconds to name one song better than Hey Ya by Outkast
Rec, rate, and guess personalities.
The concepts in the albums, the drums/beats, and especially the vintage synth that's featured in their music. I especially like the sound collage that sometimes shows up in Geogaddi.
>Has little to no knowledge of music theory
>"Enjoys" jazz and Classical
>I never even thought about whether or not they understand what I'm doing... the emotional reaction is all that matters as long as there's some feeling of communication, it isn't necessary that it be understood.
>School wun'nt no fun couldn't bring my wife's son
>I am upset that my child has been exposed to this music I believe she isn't mature enough to listen to, and I suggest other parents also pay attention to what their children are listening to
sounds like a pretty good mom to me
listened to any albums in perfect situations or gotten very specific feelings from an album recently? I just finished pic related while laying in bed sick/drowsy and it's never sounded better
funny you say that
I got hit by depression randomly and felt sleepy as shit. Some anon in a sharethread reccomend RHP so I put it on and I just connected with that shit. While I didn't feel like getting out of bed
You're literally only saying that because there's a bed saying that. I listened to it when I locked myself out of the house and there was clear, pure snow laying all around blocking the view in our backyard and it was dark as fuck. Related perfectly to that album, the numbness, the pure desire for beauty, the hopelessness (until I got back in again lol).
I CAN'T GIVE
What's Donald Trump's favorite album?
Childhood is loving nu-metal and seeing no flaws in it
Teenagehood is thinking you're "above it"
Adulthood is realizing how great it was despite it's flaws
Nu-metal was the nadir of late 20th century American youth culture.
I can't think of many genres or movements in music that are entirely irredeemable, but nu-metal is definitely one of them.
Why is smooth jazz not as well regarded as free jazz? I was rewatching Taxi Driver and I forgot how much I loved the smooth jazz interlude between scenes.
Not at all. Some early jazz bands had imaginative orchestration and an intoxicating rhythm.
Loosening the structure and dragging the lines too far transformed the genre into a meme
>tfw someone acts like some music is objectively better than other music.
Musical quality is objective. Art is an objective form, and those who opposes the objectivity of art are those who don't have the intelligence to understand it. An example of this is food, or the culinary arts. Certain food taste shit, while other types of food tastes really delicious. One person can easily tell the difference between a poorly made dish and a very excellently made dish, as the poorly made dish occupies a disgusting, revolting aesthetic with also a taste that, instead of providing a desirable taste, produces a taste that degrades the tongue with its very...

What does /mu/ think of this?
Any Barenaked Ladies fans here?
The only band that I can just listen to any song of theirs and I enjoy it.
Maybe it's because they've always been a silly, pseudo-comedy group but I don't think they get the respect they deserve.
When Paul McCartney says you could out sing the Beatles any day then you'd think people would listen to more than the Big Bang theme.
Post your RYM Rating names
>He uses some sort of pop culture reference as a rating scale (i.e. episode names, character names, etc.)
>He uses food or drinks as his rating scale
Can /mu/ rec me some chill psychedelic music? Preferably simple acoustic melodies and vocals with good vibes
>Work with David Byrne as a stormchaser
>He sees a tornado heading this way
>Here comes the twister
>Write a song called Flippy Floppy
>Record it with David Byrne
>Making Flippy Floppy
What kind of shirt/jacket is Bowie wearing here? I wanted to be Blackstar Bowie for Halloween this year but I'm having trouble finding the outfit.
>tfw when dressed as Aladdin Sine era David Bowie 2 years ago for holloween and it was great.
I'm dressing as Bowie this year too, but as respect. It will be sad
This is me in 2013 as le Reflektor man
> It's a Paul McCartney song
