this has been true since the beginning, LR and CD. The skits are cringe worthy, jesus walks, diamonds are forever, 'why the govt administered AIDS'-- its literally been rubbish the whole time.

dude is really an insane talent, with an incredible drive, but i'm not interested on his thoughts on anything other than himself
LR skits gives me joy. I don’t know why.

The Beatles are considered the first greatest rock band. Then, who is the second greatest rock band?

As you were LG x
I'm dissappoint /mu/

The fact that so many books still name the Beatles as "the greatest or most significant or most influential" rock band ever only tells you how far rock music still is from becoming a serious art. Jazz critics have long recognized that the greatest jazz musicians of all times are Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, who were not the most famous or richest or best sellers of their times, let alone of all times. Classical critics rank the highly controversial Beethoven over classical musicians who were highly popular in courts around Europe. Rock critics are still blinded by commercial success. The Beatles sold more than anyone else (not true, by the way), therefore they must have been the greatest. Jazz critics grow up listening to a lot of jazz music of the past, classical critics grow up listening to a lot of classical music of the past. Rock critics are often totally ignorant of the rock music of the past, they barely know the best sellers. No wonder they will think that the Beatles did anything worthy of being saved.
In a sense, the Beatles are emblematic of the status of rock criticism as a whole: too much attention paid to commercial phenomena (be it grunge or U2) and too little to the merits of real musicians. If somebody composes the most divine music but no major label picks him up and sells him around the world, a lot of rock critics will ignore him. If a major label picks up a musician who is as stereotyped as can be but launches her or him worldwide, your average critic will waste rivers of ink on her or him. This is the sad status of rock criticism: rock critics are basically publicists working for major labels, distributors and record stores. They simply highlight what product the music business wants to make money from.

Hopefully, one not-too-distant day, there will be a clear demarcation between a great musician like Tim Buckley, who never sold much, and commercial products like the Beatles.

Gee, I wonder why my fans don't "get" it. It must have nothing to do with whats going on on the cover of a Moon shaped pool, and how it might apply to my fanbase/customers now, does it?
>The artwork for A Moon Shaped Pool was created by Yorke with longtime collaborator Stanley Donwood.[54] Donwood worked in a barn with speakers connected to the studio where the band recorded nearby, allowing their music to influence his art.[18] Wanting to move away from figurative art and create work that was more a product of chance, Donwood initially conceived a "painting Dalek" that would squirt paint at canvases, but this proved technically difficult; instead, he experimented with weather, leaving canvases outdoors to allow the elements to affect the paint. Donwood continued the weathering process in Oxfordshire during the band's winter break, with "completely different results", before photographing the works and editing them in Photoshop with Yorke.[55]
What the fuck kind of weather was this dude leaving his art in to make this happen
I don't see how rain and paint can make that
You can sort of see it here:

Not idea what it represents, but I've heard others say it looks like the shape of antarctica or that the patterns look like the surface of the moon.
are you implying your fanbase is stupid, or that you are?
i think it's supposed to look like water, with the center void looking like the moon.

Can someone explain the point of Jon Anderson to me? The rest of Yes were incredibly talented musicians, meanwhile all he did was write incoherent lyrics and sing them poorly.

Seriously... shit like that is why I'm embarrassed to show Yes to people unless I know they're prog fans
Yeah well at the same time he wrote this:

yeah true, good point

It's still not that great. It certainly doesn't make up for "caesars palace morning glory yours is no disgrace".

dont see why people like this album so much, his flow is very impressive, and he has good punchlines, but it's just so incoherent and misdirected; the tracks don't mean anything, they're just impressive. not shitting on anyone who likes it, i just dont get it myself
It's a nice ass album, but definitely not peak

idk College Dropout came out only like a month before it

>peak hip hop
you called?
I think part of the reason of why this album is a classic is because it respects the art of freestyling and the traditional standards of what hiphop traditionally is graded upon while at the same time completely flipping that on its head

he dies tomorrow

rec good noise/power electronics/industrial netlabels ?

This is unironically a pretty damn good album. Cargo is able to boil down the basic lyrical narrative structure to its absolute (and I mean absolute) bare bones, only taking with him enough to convey the general idea and no extra fat. His beat selection on tracks like Love Hurts showcases how he is able to rap over nearly anything, even barebones trap songs without a kick drum. Moreover, carti carries the “lit” vibe throughout the track list by keeping high energy and changing the general theme of each track while keeping it familiar enough to make the album cohesive. The song Poke it Out with Nicki Minaj is one of the rare examples where I find a club/strip/lap dance type song to be sexy. His quick “fat ass/poke it out” derives the concept into its most animalistic and primal urges while Minaj provides a well timed break from Cartis adlibs to drop lines and double entendres about NYC. The intro track works as Cartis victory lap around the rap game as his slightly auto tuned vocals fill the electric chords that reverberate through the track. The song with Uzi is borderline a trap version of an 80s soft rock duet, with Uzi rapping without any sort of drums. When carti finally emerges, he hops on with the drums proclaiming “woke up with my tooly what it do,” a line so badass and cool that ASAP Rocky is going to regret not saying. In all, while this album does have some short coming (some filler tracks, repeated lyrics) I find this project to be equal parts experimental and entertaining. 7.5/10
\ carti is /ourguy/
>woke up with my tooly what it do
can you be my personal rap genius and explain this line?

(i'm not a huge trap guy, but this is one of the few projects that i think works. the intro is just so good i can't get it over it)
