Hello friends. I've been out of town without my computer for the weekend. How have you all been?

also, a few quick reviews.

Little Women - Throat
>post avant jazzcore

Man, I really just wasn’t into this. Maybe just because I’ve already listened to Zs and Naked City and a few other experimental avant-jazz records with super loud drums and guitars and squealing saxophones, but this was neither easy to listen to nor particularly innovative or interesting. Would not recommend.
Also, couldn’t you make the last song any more tasteful than literally just people screaming?

Lula Côrtes/Zé Ramalho - Paêbirú
>psych folk, psychedelic rock
>for some reason i didn’t write down who recommended this one

This was pretty cool. Apparently it’s a concept album about the four elements (Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water I presume), but I could never tell because it’s all in Portuguese. Anyways, I liked how diverse the sounds on this album were. Almost every song kept a primitive, folky vibe to it even though the rest of the instrumentation was going from jazzy saxes to proggy flute solos or a fuzzy punk jam. This is a really good example of how to keep cohesion in your album without it getting boring; diversity without losing direction.

Junior Delahaye - Reggae
>reggae, dub

This album seems to be a pretty safe medium between the styles of the previous three records from this month. It had some electronic elements like the more dub-oriented ones, and less guitar than Best Dressed Chicken, but still had some nice vocal performances and keeps a warm, organic energy about it with the help of saxophones, guitars, and bass.
The extended jam in the second half of “All I Need is Jah” was really cool. I never really thought about soloing in the context of a reggae song, but it really makes sense with the laid back instrumental to have one instrument step in and take the place of vocals to shine for a few minutes. Generally I also enjoyed the optimistic tone of the album, focusing on happiness and love is pleasant every now and then, especially after so much avant-teen depression.

most overrated album I ever listened to. I gave this album so many chances over the past 5 years, just tried again.

As 'Blues Rock' it sucks. As rock in general, it sucks.

This album has no memorable riffs, solos, harmonies, melodies, nothing. Mick Jagger's vocals are nothing special. Keith Richards sucks.

Why is the band forever compared to The Beatles? The Beatles did more for rock then any other band between 63-69.

Also this is suppose to be a contender for best album of 1971? LOL? Really?

Here's some albums which are classics from 71.

- Master of Reality - Black Sabbath
- Who's Next - The Who
- Hunky Dory - David Bowie

who cares, dude its just music
its decent its not a classic.

This album is suppose to be their crowning achievement and a 'classic.' its not.

2nd most boring song on the album after Moonlight Mile.

you know you are on /mu/ right..?
imo it's their last good album and the beginning of a really long downward spiral. Definitely not their crowning achievement. Aftermath, Between the Buttons, Beggar's Banquet, TSMR, and Let It Bleed are all better.

But seriously, how can you say that there are no memorable riffs when the album opens with Brown Sugar?
OP seems like you went into the album forcing yourself to hate it
Not a huge fan but stuff like Sister Morphine, Shine a Light, She's a Rainbow, and Gimme Shelter, are definitely great songs.

Who /doesn't actually like live shows/ here? I haven't been to one in about a year and I've decided I don't really like them at all.
>you have to stand up for two hours and it gets really tiring

>most bands sound worse or the same as they do in the studio
>too busy looking at them play their instruments to actually appreciate the music

go to jazz/classical concerts they are your type of thing

obviously if you go to a hip hop concert you should be expecting a social event
I went to a lot of shows in my early 20s when I lived in Denver. I'm 30 now and haven't been to a legit show in at least three years.

I like sitting down too much.
I feel kinda the same way, I think as I've gotten older I have higher expectations of what constitutes a good live performance (and even music in general), but when you see an act tat absolutely kills it on stage it's soooooo good. Best live act in Australia atm is Black Vanilla, their energy is through the roof and they nail it every single time.
>complain about looking artists
>complain about not being able to see the artists

Live music gigs are great fun if your just there too enjoy the music. listening and loving the music along with all the other people who also do is a fun experience if your not a antisocial autist. Its also the only real way artist make money these days so i does actually keep the bands you like going.

Okay then.

>an emphasis on dynamics, build up and to an extent texture
Glenn Branca, This Heat, Can, Henry Cow, and King Crimson. They all putted more emphasis on those aspects when compared to Slint. And they were influential to the genre too. Does that mean they are post rock?
>Except they sound nothing like other progressive rock bands (King Crimson, Yes, Genesis, etc).
They do sound a lot like Soft Machine though because of the jazz-influenced drumming.

Krautrock was a "movement" to get the attention of people from the schlagers in Germany. Some of the acts in the krautrock movement don't sound alike either.

Progressive rock has a really broad definition too, so most of krautrock projects fall under it.
i thought we already established that artists like that were more dispersed chronologically and thus not part of a wider movement. talk talk, slint, tortoise, swans etc. came around a similar time (or made a dramatic stylistic change around the same time) and by the late 90s you had godspeed and mogwai influenced by those particular bands, and are now what most people understand to be post-rock today
>They do sound a lot like Soft Machine though because of the jazz-influenced drumming.
Hmm, kind of. They are in between progressive rock and krautrock.

>Krautrock was a "movement" to get the attention of people from the schlagers in Germany
Yes. And krautrock, as a movement, featured two genres. Cosmic-Psychedelic Rock, and Electronic Stuff (which wasn't even rock).

>Progressive rock has a really broad definition too, so most of krautrock projects fall under it.
Progressive rock is the tradition of music started by bands like King Crimson and Genesis.

Okay then.
Would My Bloody Valentine be Post Rock then? They were around the same time as them, had influences on the genre, and fit all the stylistic elements.
