The point of these threads is to encourage exploration, by listening to and discussing albums we've not heard before. Typically, this is done by making a chart of albums, then listening to and discussing one album from the chart each day. Expand your horizons! Explore outside your comfort zone! Listen to music!

Hot Rats is pretty singular in FZ catalogue musically so I’d say check out Shut up and play yer guitar and some of his 70’s stuff maybe, but if you’re looking for that cool proto fusion thing then idk
>>
>>80758257

I believe like /lit/ it’s supposed to be every year but it never gets done due to shitheads being shitheads. The essentially chart is so old at this point. It’s not something I’m worried about but if it changes it will be good just for whoever else gets sucked into /mu/ in the future.

Anybody really into Beck?

Every few years I’ll get really into his work. This time it’s Mutations, Midnight Vultures and The Information. Also his B-Sides are numerous and excellent. I really love the production on his late 90’s works.

>>80759250
MP is boring however there are some songs that are wonderful. Blue moon is fantastic. Colors could’ve been something more unique and wacky but I think beck actually intended it to be a straight forward pop album. We all know he has one more insane record in him. Odelay and the b sides for it is incredible.
>>
>>80759250
Agree, I didn't understood why did he censor Dreams in the album though, such a tame verse.
>>
>>80759298
Either because of radio play, or the fact that he said his kids were an influence on the record so maybe he’s just being a parent idk. Btw he’s married to the redhead from dazed and confused which is kinda cool

J.I.D - The Never Story (2017)
>southern hip hop

One of my musical guilty pleasures is I commonly follow XXL's Freshman lists pretty much every year since 2014, so naturally I had to check this guy out considering his inclusion on this year's list. He's easily the best technical MC since Vince in 2014 and Denzel in 2015, and this album is easily the best project released by a freshman in quite some time, which is saying a lot and not very much at the same time. The actual rap stuff is really good, high-energy vocal performances with great, hard-hitting beats. The R&B/poppy stuff is just flat-out lame, J.I.D.'s voice and style doesn't fit it and these tracks always bring the album to a screeching halt. Lots of potential here, though.

2.5+

Aerosmith - Toys in the Attic (1975)
>hard rock

The title track is actually pretty sick, it's got a great riff and a rip-roaring, driving rhythm section. The rest of the album is anchored pretty much entirely by Perry's riffs. Every single other track is bland, Led Zeppelin-worship bullshit with cock rock lyrics and horrid vocal work, but the riffs are always remarkably solid. The only track that's entirely worthless is "Big Ten Inch Record" which is just...yeah.

Prince Daddy & The Hyena - I Thought You Didn't Even Like Leaving (2016)
>pop punk, emo

Occupies a spot in the higher tier of the emo revival with bands like Empire! Empire! and Remo Drive, and this is another thing that says a lot and very little at the same time. It's an incredibly oversaturated scene, but Prince Daddy (ugh) carve out a pretty unique niche by doing absolutely nothing unique at all. The band isn't shy about the fact that their music is deliberately invoking Weezer's first two records, with huge guitars and catchy hooks, and I have to admire that, because they do a decent job. It can't come close to actually replicating the angsty beauty of those records, the vocalist is really whiny (even for emo), and it's of course horrifically derivative, but I can't help but enjoy listening to it.

2.0+

The Meters - Rejuvenation (1974)
>funk, new orleans R&B

This record is much more focused on ballads and actual R&B songs with catchy melodies, compared to the band's intensely groove-focused debut. There are still some groovy deep funk tracks here, and they're definitely my favorite, because the Meters are probably the tightest band to ever perform, and their style of deep funk is like musical candy to me. The ballads are definitely the album's weak spot. They're actually not terrible, at least compared to most ballads shoehorned in a funk album, but I much prefer the actual funk.

Still all traceable though. The more complicated rock genres so far have been stoner rock, stoner metal, sludge metal, etc. Those don't seem to have a clear parent genre, but I don't discard the possibility either (unlike post-rock, unless you want to argue that it evolved out of slowcore).

Accel recs:
>C'est la Key - Superflat
I respect the hell out of this album for what it is and what it tries to do. It takes a lot to create something this personal, creative, and at times funny. But boy is it rough around the edges. It captures what it's like to struggle with harnessing creative energy, looking up to idols, sharing your art with others/the world, resentment towards popular culture, etc. It's all very relatable if you've ever tried to do anything creative in your life ever. It's a dense hour and 40 minutes, mostly composed of spoken word segments, with the occasional musical interlude (clearly the highlights). It's a little tiresome if I'm being perfectly honest. I don't know if this is how the guy talks for real or if he's forcing it to highlight the awkwardness/reservation he's feeling but I would have enjoyed sharper dialogue and cadence. Overall, it was a neat experience. Certainly check it out if you're into obscure bandcamp releases and the ethos behind growing as an artist. There's no easy way to sum up this album, and I wouldn't be doing it any favors by trying to more than I already have.

rod recs:
>Keiko Higuchi & Shin-Ichiro Kanda - Passing and Longing and There is Only a Trace Left
Very pleasant piano/vocalist duo. Not too many standout moments, but both artists are extremely talented, especially the vocalist who sang in at least four different languages and had a hell of a range. I don't usually go for this slow ballad type stuff at all, so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. And for an album released on Ftarri, this is surprisingly accessible.

rod wins and receives three (3) clout tokens
>>
>>80769653
>I don't know if this is how the guy talks for real or if he's forcing it to highlight the awkwardness/reservation he's feeling
Weird, I never really thought of it as forced, but I see where you're coming from. I'd say the most forced dialogue comes from the third to last track

Understandable that it didn't win next to an album of actual music, and you're right that it's definitely rough around the edges, but I hope it wasn't like you didn't get anything out of it
Any moments that stuck out to you?
>>
>>80770248
Forced is probably not the best word but a lot of segments didn't have the natural, conversational flow to them that I think he wanted to evoke.

There are a lot of legitimately good moments here and there. I thought the (unreleased) tracks were quite fantastic. I'm probably going to check out Coin Locker Kid now. Flabbergagger! is a good representation of the whole album I think: honest, funny, yet unsubtle (I don't consider this trait to be inherently bad but it doesn't win any favors either). Signs & Signals is what I wish a lot of the spoken word segments would be: scripted. The album sags quite a bit in the middle save for some good voice-to-text segments:
“There is a bass guitar and a normal guitar and a child’s drum set in the corner of the room.”
“…Okay?”
“Give the people - as you refer to them with considerable charity - what they want. Revel in the madness. Let the chickens starve and fuck the lotion. You are an artist. Say it.”

I mean, can you talk about this album in detail without mentioning the part where he pulls off his dick while jerking off and it starts talking to him?

The Thom Yorke segment came off as a little too cute.

But yea I certainly don't regret my time spent with it. Did it strike a chord with you personally?

I probably saw the unnatural conversation as intended, and if you're referring to the middle part of the album. I'm no expert on dialogue so you're criticism is most likely valid
>I'm probably going to check out Coin Locker Kid now.
He just dropped a new album, id guess its better than his earlier works
https://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/coin-locker-kid/the-holy/

>can you talk about this album in detail without mentioning the part where he pulls off his dick
yeah that was somethin
>The Thom Yorke segment came off as a little too cute.
I thought it was more like a self-aware track, just like Devyn is unsuccessfully trying to communicate something deeper in his music, he's not really listening to Yorke talk about his own ideas. They both insult their perspective genres that they work in, Yorke brings up depression and Devyn gets confused, all while he's trying to get Yorke to hear a cover of Creep, his "own" music.

>Did it strike a chord with you personally?
maybe not the dick ripping part but yeah, I don't mind handing it a 9 even with the flaws.
Thanks for enduring through it, I appreciate your thoughts on it! In hindsight, maybe a break halfway through it is necessary for a better listen

Do Make Say Think - Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn
Year - 2003
Genre: Post Rock
Pretty standard instrumental post-rock album. On the technical side of things: lots of semi-distorted guitar, some trumpets/brass, heavy percussion, back ground drone, layering. Interesting features include huge emphasis on percussion elements (some segments consisted of nothing but percussion, a plus for a percussion lover like me), hidden synths underneath all the other instrumentals, and forays into other genres; there were segments I felt I was in a jazz album
However, on the emotional side of things, this album was nothing. Just had the standard wistfulness of most post-rock, just sightly optimistic (a feeling which very lightly intensified towards the end). No emotional variation whatsoever. In addition, while very easy to dissociate to, this album offers no material to daydream. The only mental image it offers is just a car ride through a meadow at sunset, an image which all post-rock tends to offer
Overall, technically above average, just emotionally and mentally static. I rate a C+

I used to love this album back in the day. Probably doesn't hold up. They have a good sound, but you're right when you say DMST, and perhaps post-rock at large, lacks emotional variation.

The Kinks - Muswell Hillbillies (1971)
>country rock, pop rock

A bit of improvement on the folk rock sound of Lola, but it's definitely weaker than the albums from the band's baroque/psych pop days. I like the straightforward country rock, as I tend to do, but the tracks that mix music hall/baroque stuff and country are cloying and irritating.

2.5
>>
>>80772249
Yeah, do you think that lack of variation is an inherent feature of post-rock considering how heavily the genre relies on distortion? Since I would love to experience some emotional post-rock, as they cause me to daydream like no other genre, but they are all so flat. Once one has listened to one album, they have listened to them all, imo, unless they are in it for the demonstration of technical skill

Eureka:

Moreso than anything I have listened to thusfar, this is the closest to my preconceived notions of what ‘Music for people who are really into music’ sounds like. Indieish hipster coffeehouse associations (not in a bad way).

I really liked this a lot.

Right off the bat with ‘Women of the World’ I was drawn to the uplifting, slightly shifting and contemplative sound of the instrumentation. The higher register of the vocalist only served to complement the dreamy “by yourself in the middle of a lake shrouded in an early morning fog and staring off into the dimly lit cloudy horizon” sound of it all. The minimalism and of the vocals work in a way for me that i’ve only experienced on Daft Punk’s ‘Around the World’ and ‘One More Time’ though clearly in an entirely different context. The ideas brought on by the concept of women of the world needing to take over before the world comes to an end continued to shift and change around in my head as the song incessantly stuck by those words. A simple phrase that evokes the state of the world today, the fear of ‘the end’, the fundamental differences between men and women, what a woman-led world might be like and more. The use of repetition and minimalism with unobtrusive and pleasant instrumentation forces you to confront the mantra as you listen for the nearly 9 minute run time.
>>
>>80776755
(2/2)
The cohesion of this album is really very impressive, each track leads into the next so naturally, and despite the many different instruments I could pick out (admittedly, because i’m new this is a weak spot for me) it all felt very much a part of a singular whole.

Other standout moments to me are the self reflective and probing ‘Movie on the Way Down’, the extremely catchy ‘Something Big’ with the lovely female accompaniment and the revelatory title track, which not only conveys (to me) the objective of the album, but also clears up the first mystery I faced going into this, the meaning of the cover.

I’ll have to listen a few more times to be sure, but honestly, this might be a perfect album for me. While i’ve enjoyed hunting down the candy and comfort food in PC music and my stint with my Metallicathon, this is the first time an album has made me feel like this since the first time I heard ITAOTS.

Tomahawk - Anonymous
Genera: Alternative Metal, indigenous American folk music
On the emotional side, this album is pretty good. It captures a wide range of experiences from the animalistic rush of being in a war band to the lost feeling of wandering in the desert. My favorite parts were the chants at the beginning and end of the album - they capture and enchant the listener, initiating them into the long-lost world of indigenous American life. However, emotionally, some songs tend to have the same general atmosphere, though that maybe due to technical issues which I will discuss shortly
On the technical side, this album was above average. The rhythms and beats were catchy, and instantly memorable. The album’s greatest strength is also is its greatest weakeness; how it constantly used the same set of instruments on every songs. Sure, it is amazing seeing how the same distorted guitar can be used to create many moods, but after a while it just gets grating, y’know. The singer’s voice was also pretty okay; he was able to perform the more “wild” songs excellently, but struggled with the more softer/tender parts. Overall, this album was performed pretty well both emotionally and technically, just needs to some what improve its variety. I give it a B+

ye it's true for other genres, i just feel like post rock didn't really have a defined sound until like mogwai, godspeed and eits happened and that became post-rock, like all the earlier bands are very diverse sounding but the third wave bands all sound very similar with the whole crescendo-core meme

>Improvised Music From Japan (Disc 3) - V/A

There's light in the room. There's dust floating in a ray of light. You stand still observing it, absorbing the motion of the particles. Their energy. Now 20 minutes have passed but you stand still. You're actually meditating. What is a particle? What makes them move? Do they make a sound when they float in the air? 40 minutes. New particles emerge, they're always mutating but for you those are the same particles you've started with. Will it keep going forever? Will they keep moving forever? You start hearing their movement, a subtle hissing in the silence of your room. 60 minutes. A cloud obscures the ray of light. The music is over. Silence.


As a side note. I'm trying to make my reviews a bit different, especially with this compilation. There's not a lot to talk about musically speaking so I'm concentrating more on the feelings that the whole thing evokes in me. Let me know if those are interesting or just pretentious bullshit thank!

Bruce Springsteen - Born in the U.S.A. (1984)
>pop rock, heartland rock

After releasing his best album in the forlorn, creepy, desolate Nebraska, Springsteen embraces pure pop with Born in the U.S.A. A lot of his earlier albums are quite poppy, especially his famous Born to Run, but this style of pop is entirely different, mainly since Springsteen's songwriting style is so different. There are synths and drum machines abound, and the funny thing is the synthier new wave tracks are actually my favorite, "Dancing in the Dark" is a great tune. When Springsteen is in heartland rock mode, his songwriting sometimes seems like a parody of himself, with dark, brooding stories about middle-america auto workers abound.

2.0+

Cybotron - Enter (1983)
>electro, detroit techno

Cheesy yet admittedly fun electro. A couple tracks here lean the record in more of a synthpop, Depeche Mode kind of direction, and boy are they pretty terrible. The vocals are over-the-top and almost impressively over-dramatic, and the music surrounding them is middling at best. The uptempo techno tracks are usually a bit better, but that's mostly just because they're fun, they're still pretty terrible if you look at them compared to pretty much any other artist's take on detroit techno.

2.0

Lightning Bolt - Ride the Skies (2001)
>noise rock, experimental rock

The first three tracks are some of the band's best. Pummeling, energetic noise rock orgies, is there much more a listener could want from Lightning Bolt? The rest of the album sees the band switching it up a bit, with one track even featuring a bass that actually sounds like a bass, which is practically a sin in the world of Lightning Bolt. The band doesn't work well when they move away from their perfected formula, so the second half of the album is pretty much worthless.

Darkthrone - Sempiternal Past: The Darkthrone Demos
[2011]

I don't know why I listened to this actually. I really like Transilvanian Hunger and some other songs from Panzerfaust, but I wouldn't call myself such a big fan that goes his way to find all the demos and early material. This inspired me though, and it's actually quite dope. A lot of good riffs, vocals have lots of effects, it feels unfinished mostly but I enjoyed it. After a while it gets kind of stale, but I recommend it to the fans.

Venice is pretty much the worst city I've ever visited in my entire fucking life. A friend and I were traveling through Europe and on our stop in Venice for a couple of days we decided to go out one night and everything was dead as fuck at about 12 or 1, and we couldn't go back to our hotel once we realized we had fucked up by going out since it was fucking boring as hell since it was in a fucking island and the boat we had to take wouldn't start running again until like 5. So we were sitting down drunk in Piazza San Marco just chilling sitting down at one of the many restaurant tables that had been left out through the whole square at about 3 or 4 in the morning and then a weird fucking guy came with actual suitcases, sat down somewhat close to us and started changing his fucking clothes right there and then. Then about three bald-headed ugly motherfucking guys came and went straight to where we were sitting, kinda looked at us, went past and went up to the guy who came before and asked him where he was from. He said "Mexico" and pretty much as soon as he replied, just when the word was about done getting out of his mouth, they smashed a bottle on his head, started grabbing the nearby chairs and violently throwing them on top the guy and basically beating him to a bloody fucking pulp. I was fucking barefoot cause it was summer and I had gone out in fucking flip-flops so when I finally came to my fucking senses I had to grab my friend and I basically screamed fucking run and we were out. I had my flip-flops in my hand still because I wasn't about to go through the fucking hassle of putting the shits on while a guy was getting fucking beat to death right beside me so I was basically running barefoot through those fucking rat riddled dirty ass fucking streets until we were up at the other end of the fucking island or whatever and we went into hiding at this fucking boat stop and waited until the fucking boat came. Honestly one of the worst nights of my life.

Dick Dale and His Del-Tones - Surfers' Choice (1962)
>surf rock

If you're expecting anything like the famous single version of "Miserlou", you're in for an unwelcome shock. Instead of letting the fantastic guitar work take the spotlight, there are horrible, horrible vocals at the forefront of most tracks, and the whole album has something of an R&B sound to it, and it's just not a good listen at all.

0.5+

Def Leppard - Pyromania (1983)
>hard rock, glam metal

Well, you're probably not gonna get a better pop metal album than this. By teaming with Mutt Lange, the king of sterility, Def Leppard toned down the NWOBHM sound of High 'n' Dry and went straight for the jugular with tuneful, straightforward poppy hard rock. The style is absolutely not for me, but I can't really knock it for what it is. It's catchy as sin, I can't judge it. "Photograph" is a great pop tune.

2.0+

Willie Colón - Cosa nuestra (1969)
>salsa dura

Fun, fun, fun album. Dixon is a fantastic bandleader and composer, he imbues these performances with so much energy, life, and zest. The band is fantastic too, every performer is on their a-game. It's repetitive as sin, but who really cares?
