>>60178420 they're both albums that bring nothing new to the table they're both vapid affairs with nothing musically interesting in them in short the only people who like those albums are people who don't listen to a lot of music
>>60178428 Pet Sounds transcends pop music. Pet Sounds is an immortal release that should never be attached to any genre label.
>>60178437 >they're both albums that bring nothing new to the table
You're problem is that you clearly only care about something "new".
Execution >>> Originality. Currents is basically the perfect pop record and PBMTGR is everything i want out of a Panda Bear release. It's more consistent than Person Pitch and brings out all the best qualities of the production of the last 2 AnCo records into these grooves that i could listen to for hours.
>>60178482 >Currents is basically the perfect pop record It isn't at all, it's cheesy and completely out of date with current styles. >PBMTGR is everything i want out of a Panda Bear release. So more of hte same, with nothing interesting.
Tell me your background in music please, and tell me some artists who are remembered NOT for being original, but for being good executors of derivative styles. Go ahead.
Both records are so similar too. For some reason, just about everything i've heard from Riverside has given me just about no reason to return to it despite nearly everything sounding good on the first listen. They're basically the store-brand version of Porcupine Tree.
>>60178510 >It isn't at all, it's cheesy and completely out of date with current styles.
It has just the right amount of cheese (only track that's pushing it is Past Life) and fuck your current styles.
>So more of hte same, with nothing interesting.
The beats are interesting. I could listen to tracks like Mr Noah, Crosswords and Come To Your Senses in an endless loop for hours. Not the only album in this style that i've felt this way about either, pic related.

>>60178557 That doesn't really explain why they are complete shit. Why are the horns awful? The vocals makes sense but it's a taste issue really. The production really isn't that shit, it's just a small issue that people latch onto in order to try and critique the whole album. It's like how people magnify the political aspects of TPAB in order to try and dismiss it. >>60178568 >My background is fuck u fagit Tbh fa/\/\ :^) So you can't name a single artist from the past who was remembered for not being innovative?
>>60178358 The hype surrounding In Colour is most puzzling to me. Of course it's basically Burial, but in terms of mainstream success, it's essentially what James Blake was doing 5 years ago, which still seemed fresher than this album
>>60178624 I'd expect a prog fan such as yourself to realize that Thugger is the Robert Fripp our generation. e is not just another manufactured rap star, he is a complete artist. He is not someone that is being controlled by a record label. Thugger is singlehandedly one of the most innovative and unique artists of this decade.
He is a melodic genius, his beats are experimental, innovative, unique, he isn't afraid to experiment, he is constantly evolving and changing his style. Young Thug, from the beginning, has always pushed boundaries and has continued to make progressive music that others could only hope to imitate.
His voice is an instrument. He wants you to look beyond just the lyrics. They are there just to complement the music, they are an application of the voice as an instrument rather than a medium for verbal communication and storytelling. His voice and his sounds are something that no one else is doing. Young Thug obviously isn't a Kendrick/Drake type of rapper with outstanding rapping ability but he still manages to make better music than them.
His mixtape, Barter 6, is an extremely introspective and personal record. It allows you to better understand the perspective and emotions of Jeffrey Lamar Williams. The mixtape has become a bridge for white youth to enjoy the art of the black inner city and empathize with the likes of Thugger and that is what is so wonderful about art. We are able to see who he really is and understand him. The introductory interview at The Fader Ford shows that he is a surprisingly soft-spoken young man and it gives you all the more reason to care about him.
There was no Young Thug before Young Thug. He is not emulating anyone, he isn't trying to be anyone. He has no influences. When Lifestyle came out of nowhere, everyone loved it because nothing sounded like it
He has accomplished so much at such a young age, I can't imagine what his music is going to sound in 5 years.
Also, stop pulling "le memerap" card, it's cringey.
>>60178649 >Are you one of those stubborn people who thinks new prog can't be good? nah, i don't give a shit when it's made, lad >what kind of prog do you like prog metal tends to be really good when it goes that really weird way, stuff like Dodheimsgard (who just released an album this year), Sigh, Ved Buens Ende and even Diablo Swing Orchestra is pretty damn good
>>60178689 I quite like them. Is it the timbre you don't like? Timbre is a pretty lame concern. The overall palate is diverse enough that they never get too on-edge IMO. I guess I can understand what you mean though. Agree to disagree. >>60178694 Either you provide an example as proof, or have everyone consider you an idiot with no justifications for his wrong opinions.
>>60178785 >I like DSO even though they are considered fedora yeah, i mean they kind of are the natural conclusion to fedora music, blending Swing with Prog Metal, but fedora is a buzzword anyways >What do you think of Devin Townsend? absolute madman and le goof for real though, his music is great and CIty is a 9/10, one of, if not THE best vocal performance in metal >And What did you think of Leprous? Probably my prog AOTY not much tbqh Arcturus was pretty damn good though
Pic related is one of my favorite albums of all time, check it out if you haven't >>60178819 it's almost text to speech, are you serious? how is that not soulless? explain yourself first, anon
>>60178872 See no one really can believe that you can support your opinion though. For all we know you IRL just legitimately can't think of a good way to defend yourself, and you're saying this just as a defense mechanism.
It's very clear that either A) You have no support for your opinion, and you're trying to weasel out. B) You have very little or flimsy support for your opinion, and so you don't want to continue the conversation.
Either is fine, just come clean.
If I asked Bernie Sanders how he's going to pay for his policies and he says "Well none of the other candidates are doing that!" that doesn't mean that Bernie Sanders is now legitimate, it means that he's trying to avoid the question.
>>60178969 I remember being pretty disappointed when I heard Coal for the first time but it has eventually grown on me I listened to the new one at least 50 times and it hasn't got old yet, I also saw them live recently and they did really well
I understand some people might prefer their more weird direction and I do as well, but their new album is still great imo
