ITT: albums that'd be better as an instrumental album.
This would probably be one of my favorite albums if it didn't have any vocals.
u niggas can't be serious
You know what, in spirit I agree with you that trip-hop would usually be better without the vocals but this is the one classic trip-hop album where the vocals are perfect. You should've posted a Massive Attack album, their vocals were always ruining their tracks.
No way, Beth Gibbons is a fantastic vocalist. She's as important to Portishead's sound as the beats themselves.
i agree with basically none so far, maybe a couple of tracks on yeezus
I actually agree with this. It'd be pretty celebrated if it was a mostly instrumental album with a few features. Maybe some adlibs, hype, and minimal 8 bar verses from Kanye on some of the songs.
That's sort of the point to me though. The "get money, be hood, shoot people" lyrics with the completely raw , "ugy" instrumentals are a way of de-glamourizing the thug lifestyle.
Why does no one seem to see this.
