You know I used to be kind if judgemental about people's taste in music, but after visiting this board I'm glad that the people I come across to in real life have the capacity to enjoy music regardless of their taste

>>74640454

Yeah this board made me go down the rabbit hole of "objective" truths in music opinion. I had to sort of deconstruct all of that to get back to a place where I could listen to something just because I like it.

I think back on all of the experimental shit, weird-ass bands and progressive music I've discovered

And you know where it all stems from? Green Day.

That's right, they were the catalyst that got me listening to stuff other than cookie-cutter, bland as all hell pop music

I appreciate that first step more than anything else to be honest

In 90s Japanese guitars were considered low end just like Korean guitars now. But now... Japanese guitars are actually quality.

Starcaster was made to compete with humbucker market in which Les Paul was known for. Starcaster was only available for few years in late seventies. They have made reissue though. Who buys semi-hollow electric guitars anyway? Jazz musicians?

Thinking about getting a fiesta red 80s Korean squire. Only thing is it's 300 bucks and for that price I can get a Mexican strat.

Check some reviews on youtube. Are you sure Mexican Strat is better than Squier? Compare each and every component. In the end you can always install YJM Fury Pickups (tm) if you need.

I understand that rap record sales modestly eclipse rock record sales per big label sales reports. But... that's not how the majority of the world listens to music (i.e., buying cds or mp3s from itunes).

So what makes you believe that this factoid is not just a relic of a dying industry and hip hop fans being too stupid to figure out how to torrent music?

Don't streams and iTunes sales count towards official record sales now?
>>
Are you fucking retarded? You know those reports started taking into account streaming, right? It's probably because of streaming that hip hop was finally able to surpass rock. At least fucking READ the stuff that said that hip hop has overtaken rock instead of coming here expecting someone to spoonfeed you, autistic newfag piece of shit. Gonna be so happy once school starts and these teens are out.

When this album is great it can be some of the best music theyve made.
When this album is okay its sorta just meh.

Its definitely a pretty great album some of these tracks are just so good. And I wasn't expecting them to take this direction at all after I am a nightmare and some of their talk, though im glad at how jarring and dark it gets. It was worth the wait and if its their last im not disappointed

I was pleasantly surprised after the last few lackluster singles they released, and there are a handful of tracks that I really enjoy. Can't Get It Out sounds like it could be right off of Deja Entendu, and 451 is a fun bluesy romp - kind of a Daisy callback. Jesse delivers what I think is his most consistent vocal performance yet, the production is stellar, and the guitar work is probably some of their tightest ever.

Unfortunately, there just aren't enough new ideas on the album, and many tracks don't really go anywhere when I expected them to kick things into overdrive (No Control, Same Logic, Desert, Waste). Batter Up was especially disappointing given its length. Could Never Be Heaven sounds like filler.

6/10 for me. Devil and God is my favorite and I just miss the aggression. Glad they're back though
>>
>>74640569
Same logic sorta reminds me of fork and knife ans desert is perfect as is with the acoustic end

Id agree no control had an opportunity to kick things into overdrive and batter up is probably their worst outro single to any of their albums but fits the album itself well.

Quicksand, Bewlay Brothers, and Oh! You Pretty Things are all better and most of the rest are on part with Changes
Life on Mars is legitimately one of Bowie's best songs though
>>
>>74640043
>and I don't see it whatsoever
simple: Bowie being sensual without using a character for that. more personal, romantic. more gay, if you feel the urge. heck, even the cover states that clearly so it's no surprise.

Oh and maybe it's not the best, but my favorite track in here is Fill Your Heart.
