You listen to it enough times, it's still that good. Posted on May 25, 2023 by Anonymous You listen to it enough times, it's still that good.
For me it's washer
Imagine being the asshole that has to do open mic spoken word over lousy guitar riffs because you can’t sing
This is one of those albums that started off good, and as I listened to it over and over again, it just kept getting better. I even noticed things that I hadn't before too, like the slight droning sound that sits in the background halfway through Breadcrumb Trail.
And imagine a perfect rock album coming out of it.
It's a miracle, I know.
fuck you, kid
I love this album because it started at 0/10 but now it's 10/10
Listening to slint for the first time, will update you all once I have finished listening
Okay gang here's an update
You are not me
They were mid at best
We're talking about the album, not the band.
So was I. The album was mid at best.
i prefer tortoise
It's the only good "/mu/core" album
It's the yamcha of LULZcore except yamcha' s fans are at least honest about their hero's mediocrity.
Spiderland isn't medicore.
It's a good album, some of this stuff really sticks with you and the way these off kilter grooves are structured are pretty thoughtful and intricate. Good Morning Captain's bass line for instance is probably played a little differently than you'd think it would be when you first hear it, and once you get what it's doing it's impossible to unhear and unappreciate. Killer drumming on this record, it often feels like the driving creative force behind these songs. Every song feels larger in scale thanks to the drummer and his great sense for pacing and the narrative experience of music. The guitar work is often stripped bare clean, it's precise and intriguing. Feels like a musician taking his instrument seriously instead of wrapping some chords around words or doing the typical distorted stuff. There's some distorted stuff here but it's used well in tandem with where the drummer is taking things. I don't care much for the spoken word aspects, although they fit just fine for what this is. I do like their vocalist. There's an honesty to the way he sings. I'd say it's an album you'd get a lot more out of if you're a musician yourself but I guess that could be said for everything. These are the types of songs you'll structurally be working out in your head after the record has stopped playing. For what it's worth I consider it a shining example of post-rock and a touch more forward thinking than many albums from recent memory.
litteraly the worst thing ever to exist its on the same thing with 100 gecs litteraly unlistenable trash
The drums on Nosferatu Man are so good, gets me every time
nope, I was impressed with the album in first few listens, but now I find it's boring and uninspiring
Okay but seriously how the fuck does For Dinner sound even more like a story is being told than the tracks with actual lyrics?
same with the beach boys
I don't really like it I guess I just can't do spoken word I dunno
