Aphex Twin is objectively one of the worst and overrated musicians ever. He just releases mediocre/average tracks and everyone just eat that shit, like...
>hurr he can't fuck up! he's aphex twin! he's mozart reincarnated!
Syro and the recent ep were just an abomination, unlistenable garbage. Andy Stott and Vril are the future of electronic music. Let's face it, RDJ is a washed up has-been.
Prove me wrong.
Pro tip: you can't and you'll never.
>Literally 0 arguments
>mediocre/average tracks and everyone just eat that shit
Look, they're all bad, lazy, non-oustanding shit and yet fucktards like you praise him like Jesus Christ or someshit. Same goes for Syro which has 0 substance and no memorable tracks.
That's a really clever retort, but you simply do not understand what objectivity is. I would type things out, but just read this: http://www.iep.utm.edu/objectiv/
Basically opinions cannot be objective as they rely on the perciever of the object, the subject, to exist.
apparently aphex twin is a hit in the autistic community
Clearly you don't know what you're talking about.
>Basically opinions cannot be objective
They can, though. An "artist" content should be measured in an objective way, so we can determine what is bad or good. AFX went from good from really, really bad. And is not an opinion, it's mostly a fact.
>Being this ignorant
How about some actual criticism instead of just "hurr durr boring and average"
also learn what irrelevant means because you're using it wrong
He's not influenced by Aphex, like at all. I know him and he told me Syro sucked ass. Maybe he likes his old stuff, idk.
I don't think that's correct, as good and bad do not objectively exist in that they are qualities which rely on the perciever to exist. What objective (that is to say, dealing strictly with reality and outside of any bias you may have) qualities do you judge artists by? Unless my interpretation is incorrect, it seems that the only thing about music that is objective is the make-up of its soundwaves, which doesn't relate to good or bad.
But I just did, see the OP. Not claims, though. RDJ has released tracks of absolutely zero substance. I'm not alone on this one. Only dumb kids who recently discovered him say otherwise.
Es el mejor celular y tu lo sabes.
>RDJ has released tracks of absolutely zero substance.
That's a claim right there. You can call his recent material names all you want but you still haven't brought up an argument.
Music is subjective, it can be analyzed, but its subjective.
Art is application of rules with a purpose, you can also purposely miss apply the rules, and make even better art. So if the rules can't define good, there's no way to define whats objectively best.
His only good albums were Selected Ambient Works 1 and 2. They had real emotional value and consistency as an entire album, unlike this screwy glitched and fucked drivel hes been putting out lately. Aphex and Autechre both have this thing where they shit out records of nothing but glitchy computer seizures with edgy unpronounceable names and pretend that it belongs in the same tier as classics Amber, Tri Repitae and SAW. You can show off how edgy and cool you are with your algorithmic compositions and fucked up glitches all you want but it doesn't make up for shitty songwriting and frankly the lack of imagination that the aformentioned classics display.
>Stop insulting my favorite musician!
Keep crying about it, seriously, you're mad at this point.
Oh yeah, because these two are absolute masterpieces.
Yes, why not? The second one is better than the classical composition. Is all subjective, guys!
>Keep crying about it, seriously, you're mad at this point.
I would be mad if you had at least one good argument but I'm getting tired of your "lelele you're so mad" faggotry. I give you one last chance to give me a thorough explanation on why you think RDJ's late material is shit. Otherwise you're just a dumb idiot who has no idea what he's talking about
Compared to Drukqs, RDJ is a great album, but not my cup of coffee. Melodies from Mars was a great work too, it was consistently whimsical and silly, with melodies you could just cuddle (shame it was never officially released). I'm personally a fan of more ambient house oriented IDM than the Drum and Bass and glitch styles, so that probably explains my distaste for RDJ's current work more than anything. It's like hes trying to copy Squarepusher and failing at it.
I never said he's good. You, however, started a pointless thread without a single argument other than just random insults that barely reach middle school level. You're the one bringing out the claims, show us that you are actually serious about your opinions and bring them out.
Hes an edgemaster and a professional ass. While there are plenty of artists who are similarly assholes, RDJ would shit on a plate and laugh at the people eating it up. Hes a brilliant troll and can make some difficult sounding music for autists, but it really tarnishes the value of his past masterpieces. Sad thing is, everyone has pretty much given up hope of ever hearing another SAW album so RDJ being a rusemaster who makes shitty glitch IDM is all we have to hope for from the Aphex name.
>Jesus, fuck off.
There we go. You have no balls at all. I hoped you will actually try to stand your point but you turned out to be just another 14 year old shitposting on a Taiwan tapestry imageboard.
Same goes for you. I stand correct, though. You can not even prove me wrong with any counterargument.
>those are just claims! it's bullshit!
Also you're pretty defensive for saying he's not even good. Closeted afx dickrider, everyone. Also I'm 36.
>You can not even prove me wrong with any counterargument.
I still haven't seen an argument.
>Closeted afx dickrider, everyone.
Yeah, I'm done here. If you are truly 36 I believe you should reconsider some things in your life. For example, try educating yourself on leading a proper conversation without throwing in far fetched accusations based off your "brilliant" assumptions. This skill might be useful in the future for when, for example, you're looking for a job to get out of your mother's basement. Keep trying though, people are very amused by your efforts.
>thinking that it's not OP who was b8ed into showing how dumb he really is
I had him at "Jesus, fuck off.". Everything else was just for fun.
>Aphex Twin is objectively
Stopped reading right there
