ITT: Strange experiences after listening to albums.
Listened to this album to see what the fuss was about. Before listening to the album i was completely fine. Soon after the album was over i started feeling very disconnected to the point where my perspective on life was altered for about a month or 2. I went through everyday feeling like i was going to die or get cancer that day, even went to a doctor to get checked out a couple of times due to extreme paranoia. Im back to my original state of mind now but it felt like ages of depression and anxiety. Im actually scared to ever listen to it again evwn though it was a great album.
OP, that's called depersonalisation. It's a side-effect of anxiety which usually manifests when listening to a lot of bullshit. I went through the same thing exactly a year ago after smoking Sour Diesel.
i listened to hospice like five times and hated it
then one day it clicked and as every song progressed i sank further and further into a ball
same thing happened with jim nollman's playing music with animals 2. that was how i got into field recordings
i listened to mr bungle's s/t in complete darkness and almost killed myself/ wanted to kill someone else
I went from being an elitest metal cunt, to discovering some introverted hip-hop and indie type music.
As I listened to it more and more, I became so incredibly self aware and critical of myself that i feel like I've lost any self confidence I ever had.
I'm pretty sure it's the music that did it to me.
Too much weed can mirror those effects of depersonalisation.
I would say the same thing. That it was the worst feeling you've ever experienced, but then again you could change your mind and think it was good.
That's just mental trauma. You geeked out on weed and you might or might not have gotten over it.
Here's a suggestion: Keep living, don't worry about it. It goes away. Everything is real, it's just your perception is off from all that kush.
wantonly giving out 0.5 ratings is pretty silly
you're more or less saying "I think there is absolutely nothing about this album I find redeemable or musically worthwhile"
even if you find it a snoozing dronefest full of pretension, surely you can at least give it credit for the performances and the moments that stood out
a 0.5 has to be really spectacularly poor, it's kind of a cop-out to throw around low ratings like that.
Same reason anyone hates anything here. It gets too popular outside of the little clique of /mu/ and everyone here literally has autism so that changes the way they hear the album.
sometimes when I just stand completely still I start to feel disconnected from my body. my arms feel like attached accessories and my consciousness somehow feels like it's being pushed at the back of my head
No, the worst are dismissive posts that not only put a stop to discussion but also intentionally derail a thread that's not even dedicated to discuss that specific album.
If just looking at the cover of LYSFLATH is enough to trigger some sort of impulse to shitpost generic "lol crescendocore shit" replies no matter the context, you need to reevaluate your life.
Oh, nevermind. I thought you were the other dude who got it from the Mary Jane.
Those moments happen all the time when you're mind is blank. It's normal. I disconnect all the time, especially in public places.
Thats... a really good explination.
Also I don't really see how people can really hate lysf I mean it's pretty simple stuff not a whole lot to get riled up about imo. This is the first time iv actually considered accusing ppl of altering theyre opinions on an album to seem trendy.
>Do you honestly believe that people are changing their opinions on an album ?
Yes because they do. It's the same as the people who change their opinions based on reviews from music sites.
This happens on /mu/ all of the time. Once an album reaches "meme" status, it is talked about often enough for the people who hate it to get more attention because they are annoyed by its exposure, then these opinions spread to many other people (I'm not saying all) who start to think "oh, some of /mu/ says it sucks so it must actually suck, I was wrong." and then it snowballs.
This has happened so many times.
i don't want to derail the thread, but it's cheesiness taken to a extreme
people will obviously be a bit more critical if it's shoved in their face as a masterpiece all the time
some of it is self-moderation to make people explore more music and not be a drone, I'm sure
I dislike both.
I could but then I would further derail the thread. Make yr own thread about this instead of fucking with this one.
cool punctuation, makes me look really irrational innit?
>I have never seen someone do this. Not once. Ever.
So you're saying you have never seen people on /mu/ listen to some album leaked about a week before its official release, see the majority rave about it, then someone (say Pitchfork and a few other sources) gives it a mediocre/bad review and then people start to say how it's shit? Because that happens often. Not every time, but I don't know how you can deny this happening.
It's not even really post-rock; half of the songs don't even have guitars in them ffs. Do people really hate on it just because it's commonly labelled as "post-rock"? That's sad.
Just because you say "I don't mean to..." doesn't make it so that you aren't actually doing that. I know some people who would actually change their opinions like that too, and who also post of /mu/. So regardless of whether or not they are listening to music for music's sake (which I agree that they aren't) they are still on this site and letting other people change their opinions.
I'm not saying that what you said in
Aren't happening, because they probably are too, but people literally changing their opinions to fit into the perceived majority actually does happen, regardless of the frequency.
This was during, but what the fuck ever you worthless sack of shit.
I was sitting on my back patio looking at the stars, listening to Syro, and smoking a joint. I had also eaten an edible around 40 minutes ago at this point. So the edible starts to kick in very suddenly and quickly, and before I know it, I am in fucking space. The stars look like a giant skydome, and it feels like the whole earth is flying up towards it. My whole body is twitching out of control, it feels like I'm levitating out of my chair, and then I cream in my pants.
I asked whether you remember the CHz hype train. Do you?
I vaguely remember how after the listen-along ended, some /b/tards turned in to the sticky and started shitting on the album because they've never listened to Animal Collective before and eventually more people caught up and started shitting as well in the sticky.
Needless to say most of the people hyped for CHz weren't hyped as much for a new Animal Collective album as they were hyped for a new p4k historical landmark. From their actions I got the idea that they didn't care about Animal Collective as much as they wanted to see whether the album would end up a new /mu/core container or a generic p4k bnm lost eventually in time. The no bnm score was a surprise blow to all expectations, and the sheer over reaction of p4k fans attracted other people who didn't care about AnCo or p4k in general, and with all that CHz got cemented as a disappointment. The Scaruffi score a year later also had an effect I'd reckon.
Do you remember any of this?
>But what does that have to do with the price of tea in China ?
For that I would need to be versed in tea prices. I'm not versed in that, what I am versed in somewhat is general /mu/ behavior, which dictates that /mu/ doesn't treat music as music but exclusively as memes and an cultural object.
Some of my experiences:
>SMASHING PUMPKINS: Siamese Dream
I went through the entire album, from front to back, in vinyl no less. After the last song, I felt exhausted, and it was a feeling I can never get from listening to a CD.
>NEUTRAL MILK HOTEL: In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
I became obsessed with this album that I started to think about Anne Frank and the horror of the Holocaust. Because of this, five years later I am a slight White Nationalist and a little skeptic of the orthodox Holocaust tales. Mangum went full SJW with this album (as well as "Little Birds") and it backfires for me.
>THE CLASH: Sandista!
This was more a painful experience to listen to all 6 sides of it in succession. I started to disown The Clash for making this album as bloated as it is.
Fuck you and your inferior waifu. Instead of arguing about this let's make up and watch shitty anime together.
(I'm only half joking)
You're talking about opinions, whereas the people I'm referring to lack any actual opinions, instead holding a placeholder where "opinion" should be until a special deity comes and decides to replace that placeholder with either a red ball or a black ball.
These people "change" opinions because they never quite were into music to begin with, instead treating it either as a fashion, a meme, a cultural icon, or all three.
He was SJW for 90's standards, and a communist for 50's standards.
He talks about Anne Frank like she's his waifu and had this obsession of le Shoah at the time. It's as if some suburban white kid is told about white privilege and gives in to that and cries for three weeks straight.
I've been here for like two years but haven't seen that before. Maybe I'm just blind or autistic.
Or maybe I am new because I don't know what this is either.
Guess I should go ask /mu/ to spoonfeed me music now.
hey i like cul de sac have u ever listened to this its pretty alright
it totally is
everyone check out this kickass album cover
I just was an immature, selfish asshole and threw her friendship and love away and now I have no one. Not even my shitty escapist animu because it reminds me of all of the great times we spent together before I fucked it all up.
And to keep it /mu/ related:
>tfw you can't listen to great music that reminds you of your qt anymore
Yeah I tried to get back together with her but she understandably refused.
But believe me I've been trying to move on. Especially since she has already moved on. I think the hardest part is the fact that I was the one who fucked it up. I was the one who broke her heart and now I regret it. I hate the feeling of hurting someone I cared about, that's always been my biggest fear so naturally that's probably why it's been so hard for me and why everything reminds me of her.
Oh well, this is just me bitching. Everyone says it'll get better with time but so far it has just gotten exponentially worse for months and months.
Listened to this album to see what the fuss was about. Before listening to the album i was completely fine. Soon after the album was over i started feeling very connected to the point where my perspective on life was altered for about a month or 2. I went through everyday feeling like i was in love or tripping on acid that day, even went to a doctor to get checked out a couple of times due to extreme paranoia. Im back to my original state of mind now but it felt like ages of happiness and contentment. Im actually looking forward to listening to it again it was a great album.
If I could erase any album from my memory it would be this one. Dad always used to play this any chance he had and I have no idea what it's like to listen to this for the first time. It sounds cliche as all hell but this album is really part of me.
