What's the druggiest album ever?
We need to make an essential drugcore chart and sort it with different drugs
i dunno i'm not a drug expert but sleep, gg allin and syd-era floyd were pretty different
Not him, but it's silly to throw around "you know nothing about music" when you haven't shown you do yourself. It's easy to say that anyone you disagree with, and it comes off as insecure
Just a tip
I don't see how can Todd Rundgren having a better album in his discography, has anything to do with me saying Innerspeaker wasn't better. Todd Rundgren is not better than Kevin Parker, sorry.
First album I ever listened to while on stuff. Best Experience ever.
I love how both of you idiots think spouting your opinions while saying absolutely nothing to support them is like providing an actual arguement
Case in point: "its old xddd"
Both of you fuck off
>Tame Impala is progressive
no it's incredibly derivative of the psychedelic pop music that came out over 40 years ago
At least Todd innovated and had an original sound, whereas Tame Impala just sounds like every other fucking modern psychedelic pop group trying to emulate the psychedelic music from the 60s and 70s
Be more specific. In what way? As far a
I know they are one of the straightest revival bands out there
> much better illustrates the psych experience
Again, in what way that Todd doesnt?
You need to elaborate your points or I'll think you're baiting
Just because he takes influence doesn't mean he's imitating. Innerspeaker sounds completely its own, AND you can hear its various influences. It's a whole bunch of different things at once. It's not JUST a throwback to the '60s, because I hear '90s, '80s, etc.
How could you not like this riff? It's very reminiscent of The Velvet Underground. I don't honestly see the problem with paying respect to one of the greatest albums ever made.
>Again, in what way that Todd doesnt?
Tame Impala is more of a drone oriented band. Todd Rundgren is more pop. Being in a trance state is more akin to what it feels like to be stoned.
I also hear a lot of Grateful Dead.
Tame Impala is very drone-inspired music. All the tracks seem to be like mantras.
the best albums are made in LSD land
My bait instincts were right on the money
I don't know why you didn't post that, it's his best. Not baiting, you clearly don't know much about drugs or psych music.
You're missing the point
If you're going to use drone to describe them, you may as well use it describe dozens of other psych pop bands as well. The main problem is how he contrasted it with a "pop oriented" psych artist, which he implied Todd is
It should be obvious how silly this is when Tame Impala is just as pop oriented, not saying that's a bad thing. Now do you see why "drone" oriented and "pop oriented" are useless descriptors of psych music? Unless droning is a significant musical elect in the music, a la Bardo Pond, you're talking out of your ass
It also implies that and band that utilizes drones is inherently "more" psychedelic
It's clear, is it? Then tell me how you came to that conclusion based solely on the fact that I disagree with you
I think you don't know what pop means. In this context i'm using it say they are a psychedelic pop band, in contrast to say a psych rock band like early Mercury Rev
Alt rock and pop are not mutually exclusive terms
That's ridiculous. Maybe you could say most modal jazz, but that'd still be a stretch
Tell me again you aren't baitinf
>whole bunch of different things at once
They're a band who wear their influences on their sleeves. I'm not saying that's inherently bad, but it doesn't make them inherently good or creative unless they do something new with those influences
Droning, or how you describe it at least, is damn near ubiquitous in psychedelic music
They're well produced and they sound pleasant, but otherwise I'd rather listen to a revival band that doesn't make me wish I was listening to their precursors instead
i want to kinda agree on that,but i mean this album exists so that makes it hard
Listen to this on weed, one of the most awesome experiences you'll have
thats a really good idea.
Black Sabbath - Master of Reality
Nick Drake - Pink Moon
Dr. Dre - the Chronic
Brian Eno - Discreet Music
Can - Ege Bamyasi
Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
Swans - Filth
Im already aware of their influences which shouldve been obvious if you read my post
It doesn't matter what artists influence a band, it matters what they do with those influences. You seem to think they did something original with them and that's what I'm trying to get you to elaborate on
>Any Colour You Like
The guitar riff is stolen, it is originally a basspart from the song "Fredag" by Dungen, and band that Kevin Parker has repeatedly praised(and stolen from)
The fact that any decision you make in life is completely controlled, and that you're no different than anyone else, and in that sense you're freed to make your own way in life, while being part of the collective. Tago Mago is great, not as good as Dark Side, especially in production.
Ho can you even say that, it's the same notes? It isn't "similar", it's the same... It's not played on the same instrument, if that's what you meant. It's a guitar riff in Runaway and a bassline in Fredag
>any decision you make is controlled
>you're free to make your own way
I understand what you're trying to say, but you should realize that this requires several leaps of logic that you're ignoring
Critiquing the human condition is not unique the that record, see Faust's s/t
It also doesn't have any bearing on how "psych" a record is
I'm glad you singled out production, which is the only thing DO does better besides it's tight as fuck arrangements and pop songwriting. You've explained nothing
The Courtney Barnett EP sounds soo much like really cheap, shitty weed.
Black Foliage sounds like mushrooms to me, but I've never done it so idk
Statsvandringar by Dungen sounds like really good weed.
La Femme - Psycho Tropical Berlin sounds like cocain, but I've never done that either...
hell yeah, Skogen Brinner is also fucking awesome.
OT: pekka airaksinen and sunburned hand of the man are pretty druggy
He's right, it is an inherently shit list based solely on the fact that it combines MDMA and amphetamines, and then opiates and cocaine. What the fuck?
In addition, most of the album choices are completely arbitrary
A squid eating dough in a polyethylene bag is fast and bulbous. Got me?
