>>55406996 This is just bad trolling. Have YOU heard the album? It does go into more easy listening territory on the standards, and definitely incorporates funk (re run home) and free-ish jazz (seven prayers), but a majority of it is str8 modal jazz or contemporary jazz (which is indebted to modal anyway)
>>55407219 he didn't say it's not jazz. kind of blue is also jazz for people that don't like jazz. it's still total jazz, but memesters pretend to love it to fill out their musical palette. this new album is also memejazz along the same lines.
>>55408192 That doesn't speak to the quality of the music though. As long as I listen to it and respect the mature soloing and exciting arrangements (of which it has lots of both), rather than the aesthetic, I'm not doing anything wrong.
What's with our obsession with memes anyway? EVERY album on this board that has more than, say, 500 ratings on RYM is automatically a meme. Some music has to be more popular than other music...
>>55409517 I really hate the obsession with memes. It just becomes popular to flood every discussion with some bullshit reason to discard an album without listening to it.
Even the humor is fucking annoying sometimes. I'm not defending Blur but holy shit it's impossible to have a discussion about them on /mu/ now, and I guarantee most of the people shitposting about it haven't even listened to The Magic Whip - on both sides.
