Today we post only 10/10 albums
Criticism MUST be followed by an alternative album
I'm sure this will be met with a lot of criticism but its still a 10/10 for me.
far longer than it should have been with very few memorable tracks
"Business men they drinkin' my blood / like the kids in art school said they would"
"I want to wash away my sins / in the presence of my friends"
"I wish I could have loved you then / before our age was through"
"THEY HEARD ME SINGING AND THEY TOLD ME TO STOP / QUIT THOSE PRETENTIOUS THINGS AND JUST PUNCH THE CLOCK"
Yeah, I guess not that many memorable songs.
So different from the rest of the discography, but I fucking love it
Cemeteries of London, Yes and the first half of D&AHF save it from being something special.
One of the few albums where a live version surpasses the studio version
I don't see any metal album here, must be a mistake
The Unforgiven: 11/10
I wouldn't give it a 10 but it's a great album nonetheless
>If I was scared, I would
>If I was pure, you know I would
>And if I was yours... But I'm not
>In line for a number but you don't understand, like a modern man
>And if it's alright, then how come you can't sleep at night?
>And my old friends, I can remember when
>You cut your hair, I never saw you again
>Now the cities we live in could be distant stars
>And I search for you in every passing car
Best Track: Ready To Start
Worst Track: Month Of May
Basically what >>49460928 said, concept is cool but waaaay too long (and boring).
3 Great tracks, rest is shit.
I ended up really liking Rococo because of something very specific to me.
In my school, we had a weekly vocabulary test called the "Word of the Day" which was probably a really standard thing. You had to memorize these vocab words, their definitions, their etymologies, and use them in a sentence. One of these words was rococo but there were no pictures and nobody in the class ever cared enough to do more than the minimum for these tests so every single person in the class wrote some awful nonsense sentence with the word "rococo" in it.
So that's what I think of when I hear "Using great big words they don't understand." I know the song's about something else but it's very easy for me to read it as a song that's about something specific for me.
You mean inb4 Nebraska was better?
I will never stop pimping this album out. It's perfect.
Great album 10/10 for me also
5/10 most of the songs sucked and the album was really boring to listen to. At least it is not Ghost Stories but it still not even close to a 10/10 for me.
the other window. and even though i think 154 has some of the best tracks between the two, pic related is more consistently amazing
I have a controversial opinion on a 10/10 album.
Anyone want to tell me why I'm wrong?
I was kind of joking about Nebraska. If I really had to pick a best Springsteen album, it'd be a self-compiled best of. All of his albums have some boring songs on them imo.
GOAT is "Atlantic City"
agree with these
haven't heard this but I listened to This Nation's Saving Grace for the first time recently and it was really good
8.5-9/10 school spirit and it's skits, the lil jimmy skit and workout plan are bad. LR is just as good and maybe a little better
Underrated album here but a bit too long. Honestly, I like Neon Bible and the first EP best.
Good album, 8 or 9/10 though.
Kanye West is atrocious, 0/10
terrible commercial garbage
Good album, solid 9/10
Good but gotten sort of old to me.
Pretty good, but I think it's a little overrated. I like Mission of Burma Better.
Here's a 10/10
Because le reddit boogeyman.
Reddit is just as awful as 4chan in reality. Both are full of edgy teenagers that love memes. The only difference is we listen to le right generation music while they like le wrong generation music.
/r/lewronggeneration is pretty much just /mu/ for redditors.
having spent only a couple months lurking and posting here tho, I feel like the big difference is that /mu/ is friendlier than reddit in general while also posting more shitting things. There's more tolerance, even if that means tolerating people calling you an asshole for loving whatever you want to love.
This, This, This.
Absolutely perfect from beginning to end with more memorable moments than I can count. The first time I heard
>SOOOOOMETHINGS IN THE AIR...AFTER ALL
I was blown the fuck away.
I honestly prefeer this over Leviathan.
I think both sites can be pretty unfriendly, to be honest. If you don't fit into the hivemind of either board people are going to shit on you. On /mu/ you're probably just more likely to get ironic shit posting and meme responses. On reddit you'll probably get some autist writing a paragraph on why you're stupid and a couple of hundred downvotes.
>I feel like the big difference is that /mu/ is friendlier than reddit in general
Jesus christ, i thought you were posting the most cringeworthy lyrics from the album, then it turns out you were trying to promote it.
I mean i like the album, but your post gets a 0/10.
I could see him thinking this if he likes /mu/ approved music that the wrong generation kids don't like. Both are pretty bad and much more similar than people would like to think. It's funny when people redirect people to reddit for defending feminism or something because reddit is basically 4chan lite.
I was just trying to think of all the memorable songs and put a lyric from each of them. I wasn't trying to bestof the lyrics exactly, just going off the top of my head. I thought maybe other people would feel similar things about similar lines because they're just the ones that floated right to the top of my memory but oh well. I don't mind looking dumb because I really am that dumb.
I think it's friendlier because of the format. On reddit, you downvote stuff you don't like and that hides that opinion. Opinions edit the discourse and make shit invisible.
On 4chan, if you shitpost, people talk to you and every post is exactly as ephemeral as any other post. I interpret that as friendlier-- in a way.
Music is very clearly a short-term habit because i've liked almost every album posted in this thread at some point in my life. Now I just download albums and send them to the trash. Welp, time for a new hobby
What do you rate Spirit of Eden? I can't decide which album I like better.
There's just something about pic related that gets me. Probably not a 10/10 on any objective level (if there is such thing) but to me it's a 10/10
close, but no
fuck kanye he shit go ask pitchfork maybe they'll take you to a kanye cocksucking session with them
It's a lively, fun-sounding rock album that is nonetheless sort of dark and will leave you kinda sad. Like a Little Miss Sunshine kinda mood.
It really just succeeds in every way a rock album could. The lyrics are memorable for both their content and the way they flow, and the songs are paced/structured in varied and interesting ways that keep you from getting bored even after repeated listens. The latter is largely due to the fact that the rhythm section (especially the drummer) is absolutely GOAT.
It also just sounds really good – great vocal takes (it was also their last album with the best singer in the band IMO), godly bass tone, lush harmonies and real slick mixing.
It's a well-paced album, full of VERY well-structured songs, but – as per the thread topic – the main point is that it all just comes together to make an album that I listen to cover to cover every time.
below = good example of the mix of sombre and saccharine
nah man... a 10/10 album has to be flawless - there are at least 4 pretty average tunes on that record, so its an 8.5 at most
pic related, one of the few Jazz albums without a single weak section
maybe the defining sound of the millennium
This ones a 10/10 for me. Top notch production, no fillers, and her big vocal range blew people's minds.
coexist is better imo
close but no cigar, 9 for me
The drone bit in Descent could have been shortened by a bit, but I think this album really brings out that melancholy, miserable feeling in a way that only Bongripper do, but maybe it's just because I really, really like droney riffs.
jesus christ i don't know what's worse:kanye fans or kanye haters. i think he's a moron who stands for everything i hate, but i admit he makes great beats and can write well whenever he's not talking about anything social. but no, you instantly assume i'm a le pitchfork cocksucker go listen to real music
some really shitty songs make it laughable
hahahah really? not even close
even the cover is gay
it's the same track, over and over and over
lol anything numetal. relaly ?
gaysters first gay

not bad but not 10
horrible dude, 3/10 at best
more fagye, no. too shitty produced
not bad but dudes voice is hella gay
lol DP no
even gayer version of the already gay godpseed? hellagay
literally the most generic post rock ever to be produced. 2/10
lol maybe in an AU where gay music is a 10 that'd be a perfect 10 but we're in our universe where it's just laughable 4/10
9/10 KILAS Is better
dylan, not the worst singer in existance
lol poor mans blondie
did yr dad beat you too ? that shit's bad
more pedophile music, NO
worst rap album ive ever heard in my life. soulja boy's 1up is better and more original where every track off that is boring as shit 'im black my life is hard' over the most boring beats ive ever had the displeasure of hearing.
super fucking gay

9/10 needs vocals
poor mans RHCP
too tryhard trippy
you'd have to be a tool to listen to tool
after drawing it
poor mans system of a down
This is the only album worthy of a 10/10
a lot of pretentious "hipsters" up in here. Surprised, really. Beyond is 10/10
A few tracks are catchy and great, most are forgettable at best, 5/10
I really hope this is bait. How could you enjoy that, exactly? It's all generic, boring songs we've heard about a million times.
>Same basic song patterns
>Only one memorable song
This is the one album I can listen to whilst in any mood and always come out of it feeling good, it's constructed brilliantly
There She Goes Again is incredibly weak in comparison to the rest of the album.
Serious question here, do you really think that? Which of Megadeth's first 4 albums would you consider generic or boring? Sure, afterwards they suck, but i was curious as to why you'd say that.
Agree with your choice. Starless is amazing
first two tracks strong but rest of the album is pretty meh dinosaur jr. it's not even their best album so why would you even post it except to air YOUR opinion on ``underrated'' dinosaur jr.
it doesn't get attention because its a mediocre album m8
Thanks for the recc, really enjoyed this
10/10 nice one m8
-10/10 kill yourself
gay black singer/10
A different flavor than 'The Scream' but my favorite.
And another band who I liked better after their punkish stuff (seriously, I didn't hear Pink Flag 'til recently and was sort of disappointed with it).
You're all disgusting plebs.
Pic Related is the only ONE TRUE 10/10
I very deeply relate to this album. 'Spent the summer staring out the window,' 'The music divides us into tribes,' 'I would rather be alone than pretend I feel alright,' 'Late at night the feelings swim towards the surface.' I am part of a generation that has grown up in a weirdly plastic suburban environment numbed by mass media. The kids of the sixties grew up in the same environment, but they protested and rebelled, they spoke out. When the revolution was commodifed by the greedhead eighties, it stopped being cool to care about anything and all the plastic music and big popcorn movies so falsified emotion that no one seemed to be allowed to publicly feel anything anymore. The Suburbs is an album looking at all the desperately real emotion bubbling under a million identical facades trying to conform and asking how and when exactly conformity and being void of personality managed to become cool, asking where the unending circle jerk of ironic detachment and distaste for everything gets us.
I guess you have to get some emotional connection to the lyrics to consider the album a 10/10.
The thing is, even if some tracks aren't 10/10, the album topic overall is worthy of at least a 9
The only 10/10. Hex is the only thing in this thread that comes close.
