Can you stop forcing this please? It's a great electronic music album and it doesn't need your help. Try posting other 10/10s
>implying that The World That Summer isn't the best
brown book is great too though
I'm just saying man, you put the exact same album in the OP every time, and it's one half of us have heard. But yeah that's a pretty good album
Cat bob u jokester
I made it my job to post Deceit in every one of these threads, just like some people post Can and Cluster
Agreed, although there's far worse.
Also nice pick by the way, a 10 for me as well
I prefer Y between the two. Unknown Pleasures will always be my favorite post punk album. Martin Hannett and Ian Curtis were geniuses
>The World That Summer is the best
Are your ears functioning? That album has some really bad sections. The first two songs are shit and it feels really incoherent. It has no unity and it's just all over the place. Brown Book was where Death In June finally developed its signature sound.
Y is great as well. Also it's nice that you prefer UP, for some reason a lot of people have started shitting on it recently.
>Brown Book was where Death In June finally developed its signature sound
True, but in The World That Summer was a very gloomy and dark industrial/neofolk sound that you just can't hear anywhere else. Thanks to all the synths and drum machines, they achieve what I've always wanted to hear from them - a truly hopeless and cold neofolk album
Whoever does that is mostly likely being contrarian, maybe because of the revivalist symbol it's become for mainstream hipsters. Or just musically uninformed
What a shitty argument
If all you can come up with is that it's boring, then maybe music isn't for you, little one
I guess we like different aspects of neofolk. I like it for the beauty and emotion, so I tend to prefer Brown Book and Rose Clouds of Holocaust, and also prefer Current 93 to Death In June.
Well to start with one, What's Going On by Marvin Gaye was an incredibly influential masterpiece with pacifist themes coming out right in the midst of the Vietnam War, and one of the first charting albums from an artist that broke the chains of Motown Records, who had plenty of talented music come out of their label but had extremely rigid standards and processes their artists had to go through when presenting image, releasing singles, etc.("the assembly line"). Production wise the album is very layered, clean and polished, to the point of Philadelphia Soul quality, and featured a wide range of Latin instruments and soulful horns. The album is beautiful, and not only that Marvin graces over every instrumental with his extremely talented 3 octave range, bringing the album more versatility than it already had.
Not to mention it was a solo album released by a black man only 7 years after the civil rights act. That wouldn't be too strange, but the themes of the album, police brutality, the war, religion, politics, were very relatable at the time and can still be applied to struggles faced today.
Not my favorite LP of all time, but possibly the best song-oriented album.
Huh. Eskimo is cool, but I never expected it to be anyone's 10/10. I always preferred Mark of the Mole, even though it's sloppier.
