after listening to this album i then knew what it sounded like
The album that make me take hiphop seriously and stop being le wrong generation.
Probably the closest I've come to an religious experience.
Music has the power to control shit dude. Fashion mainly but also the way people think and act.
I mean look at what Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa and A$AP Rocky did to a whole generation. For the worse in my opinion, but yeah you get the point.
>theres not much there outside of a handful of artists
That's true for every genre, even dadrock
It's just easier to avoid bad dadrock because it's not on the radio anymore like all the bad memeraps
This album got me into the idea of an album as a whole project and not just as a collection of different songs. It really opened up my mind when I was like 14. I'm not sure if I like it as much now as I did back then, but it's still a great album.
This album made me realise you don't need guitars and distortion for a great album. I can't put in words how different this was for me, how amazed I was when the album first finished.
This album opened up a whole new area of music for me, and truly broadened my taste. This applies to radiohead as a whole really, and while I haven't listened to them for a year or so now, they will always be special to me
This is the album that got me into post-rock, even if I don't listen to the genre as much as I used to. GYBE was huge when I started browsing /mu/ a few years ago and that's how I discovered them. They still are posted often, but back then there was so much more discussion about them. Anyway, great album and I hope they put some new stuff out including Behemoth.
I had heard 'For Respect', 'Don Caballero 2' and 'What Burns never returns' before this One, And I loved those Albums
But this Album...
This Album was the soundtrack to some of the confusing times in my life.
the Track 'I never liked you' fills me with that child-like excitement that you come across very rarely in adult life.
My godfather was a huge fan of The Bends and OK Computer, and hated Kid A when it first came out.
I sat in a room with him, and we listened to Kid A all the way through, and at the end he was crying, he couldn't believe what he had missed.
Turns out he just stopped the CD as soon as he heard synths. He then followed the hate train and didn't try again, until 12 years later when I played it to him
This album and Junior by Royksopp; those were the first serious albums I've ever listened (Before that I only listened to the nº 1 shit in the radios), thanks to this albums I later discovered more great music.
Then I discovered The Butcher/Supercollider by Radiohead and my mind blew up.
Became my favourite band from that opening riff. And getting into the rest of their discography and listening to the bands they listed as influences got me into shoegaze, ambient, drone, trip-hop, noise, decent pop rock, instead of just metal, classical and dad-rock. So maybe not literally changed my LIFE, but had a huge impact on my music tastes.
Found these guys a few years ago, ended up leaning so much about albums and production of music in general. I'm always trying to find stuff like this but never can. Downward is Heavenward is amazing too.
Somehow it made me realize that I'm capable of writing songs. Can't thank it enough for that.
music has an effect on your emotions, which in turn influence your thoughts and actions. duh. so yeah having ones perception/outlook in that field changed can make a more or less noticeable difference.
these guys probably had the biggest impact on me overall. listened to nothing else in grade 10, at some point i thought it was me going back in time to help write those lyrics, so my then-present-self had some kind of guidance. yeah i was kinda retarded and still am.
Have you heard Endless Sea yet? Can't wait for the Gentle Storm album! By the end of August I'll have seen Anneke live 13 times (14 if she plays Albert Hall) in 6 different countries :D
Just listened and I'm definitely looking forward to that. Wikipedia says Marcela Bovio is doing backing vocals for live performances, so I really hope there's some good live recordings down the road.
This this this this. Pic related changed my perception of music but I wouldn't say it changed my whole life.
Made me realize what a neurotic asshole I was and convinced me to start enjoying life for what it is
This got me through the last stages of high school and depression, and it also taught me to take my life easy
What's truly sad is this album is mostly outtakes and b sides she didnt put on Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill
Gave me the courage to perfrom my sex change surgery.
This album completely ruined my life in many ways.
I don't care how cool you guys think whatever you like is, over my long years of music exploration, this band seems the pinnacle, the more you know about the band the more you realize its legit the best thing humans have ever done period. Go listen to it.
>Trout Mask Replica
>Licensed to Ill
and even though I'll get shit
>Straight Outta Lynwood
Don't know if it changed my life but it definitely changed my entire perception of Hip Hop and music as a whole in some sense
I guess Endtroducing probably changed my life a little bit
pic related got me into albums
Ágætis byrjun and DSoTM got me into good music
>my sex change surgery
>MY sex change surgery
>"i performed my own sex change surgery"
I listened to this for the first time stoned and on shrooms. I started gardening and I've got a few bonsai trees and shit now. Shit gave me a new hobby and daily routine other than wake up wanting to fucking kill myself.
I used to be a dumb close-minded metalhead before I listened to this album.
When I listened the it really annoyed me at first, but I got back at it and feel in love, its my favorite album now.
Also after falling in love with this album, I went to a "indie" music festival which was the best experience of my life and my best memory.
I'd also consider myself an opener and more understandable person now.
Thank you /mu/.
Long story I couldn't tell you without being called emofag
thanks. I'll try to gather some of the plants I've got growing and the bonsais another time and maybe post them in an appropriate thread. I've currently got a twisted trunk (I don't know what type of tree it is, first one I got and bought it from walmart on a whim), I'm growing an azaelea slant and working on a semi cascade green carpet. I've also got 2 orange trees, a lime tree, some aloe vera, a couple cacti and I'm starting my seeds for some vegetables this year. Picked up cabbage, bell peppers, jalapenos and basil.
yeah, of course. In the mornings now I go and sit on the back porch with a cup of green tea and play it and if I'm not working I take a few rips and just relax, if I do work I typically just meditate.
Find a qt gardener gf u stud. Also please make that thread.
It basically introduced me to /mu/ and got me really interested in post rock, which went onto shoegaze.
I'm learning guitar now and i'm going to start a band (maybe 2) when my internet friend comes to NY. Spiderland was a "tipping point" for me and Good Morning, Captain is one of my favorite songs of all time
i was tired of "mainstream" genres (inb4 hipster), then i listened to this
forgive my spelling, I'm already at work and my phone is kind of odd. I grew up in a pretty poor family, worked since I was 12, had a best friend fuck a girlfriend of mine, started doing harder drugs and drinking, worked at a pizza place where my boss would pull guns on people, got stabbed twice while there by people trying to get gang initiated and had to stab a couple. Got baker acted twice and im diagnosed with bipolar and schizoaffective.
Things are better now though
I remember I read this tinymixtapes review where they explained that an album that "changes your life" shouldn't be an album that you love, but an album that actually made you think about things differently.
I actually thought this album was a huge letdown, but the previously released tracks have completely changed my listening habits and to a certain degree my personality. Most of the music i had listened to before was very dour and dark; it was like i used music as an emotional crutch. Then I heard Attracting Flies, and I realized "Hey, music should be fun! it should be fun, sexy, innovative, melodic, etc." And so I got more into rnb, hiphop, pop, electronic stuff, etc. I'd say it's made me a brighter person
I played this album and knife man a bunch when I was in my early teens
totally helped me become a more empathetic person and helped with my deconversion from religion
man I love AJJ
>music has the power to control shit... fashion mainly...
music has literally never affected my fashion. you're speculating and speaking from your own personal experience. music doesn't control anything, you do. it simply provides an experience and environment in which change is conducive
are you a wizard?
This one for me, it helps me become less stressed and nervous whenever my anxiety/social anxiety starts to get bad, its just so calming.
