seems like every music reviewer out there with "good taste" is a pretty big douche.
>fantano reviews illegal leak, laughs it off and continues to douche it up
>scruffy is basically an autist who runs a terrible twitter and all his music reviews are a few lines at best
>pitchfork is fluff, english major-tier paragraphs of bullshit
>deadend hiphop is basically unwatchable due to stream of thought type filming and all the personalities stop surprising me (for the most part, not you breezy)
are there any good reviewers?
I've never read a review of Chrisgau's that wasn't just a smug nonsense statement. Also his rating system makes zero fucking sense.
how the fuck does a picture of scissors or a looney toons bomb indicative of the quality of music? at least a 1 to 10 rating is a comparative ranking.
And The Money Store has the same grade and Tswift's Red.
what the cluck
Hey guys, just out of curiosity (don't hurt me), but why do you fucking need reviewers? It's not like reviewing a movie. Why are you listening to these faggots making easy bucks and not listening to the music they're talking about? You'd be smarter if you did. just sayin', gtfo and listen.
This kind of hatred stems from a personal experience where I encountered a co-worker who was talking up a band and literally cited an entire paragraph off some jerk-off's "review." Though he couldn't name off a single song on the album except their single. Seriously, this guy went on about his favorite band but "i don't know the title man, i just know the song." The whole moment was cringe.
it be good to confirm some of my thoughts or appreciations with someone who is "seasoned"
like sparring with a kung-fu master or something. you want to know what you missed and if you're feeling stuff that's objective or just in your own experience.
i would never tell someone to not like something they like because it is objectively inferior. obviously music is a deeply subjective thing, but there must be certain elements that are universally felt.
still doesn't really click with an understanding in my brain. i'm 21 and look for music i enjoy and listen to it to make my own opinion without basing off of someone else's OPINION. and i probably work just as much as you do. listening to music isn't hard to fit into your daily schedule.
but that's ok.
I like Fantano more than the rest, because he doesn't seem to take himself too seriously. Scaruffi is a dick, and mostly a reaction to what's popular and critically praised. The Beatles and Aphex are overrated? Fuck off you pseudo intellectual piece of garbage.
Honest question, not trying to be a dick, but why do you people read/watch reviews? I never tend to put much weight in some random guy's opinion, and would rather listen to the album myself.
Mainly, it's just fun to watch, and get some other guy's perspective. Hearing music lovers talk about the music they love (or hate, in SOME cases) is pretty great.
Same reason I'm on /mu/. I don't NEED your opinions/shitposts/recs, but hey, it's fun, so who cares? And if you don't enjoy it, well, good for you, but there's nothing wrong with other people enjoying it.
