Basically its an album walking you through Kendricks childhood, exposing his life. Its a very intimate album, especially for hip hop
>>
>>73981093
It's funny, but beyond that it's uniquely textured, wonderfully composed with lengthy songs with complicated structures, and all the performances are really good.

It took me a few listens to get into it, and one thing that helped me get into that one was listening to later Bungle albums. Mr.Bungle, Disco Volante, and California are some of the best albums I've ever listened to.
>>
>>73981702
It sounds like a self-absorbed and shallow album
>>
>>73981093
Well, it's hard to explain, but let me try:

It's like an album that dips you in the mind of a schizophrenic and evil clown: everything in here is just so fucking nuts, the whole album is like a NC-17 version of a porno/action movie with absurdist comedy or some slapstick gore.

Recommended only if you like quirkyness.

It has this eerie anxious feeling and the lyrics are amazing. Also, the band really gets into a groove sometimes where the riffs and drumbeats draw you in like on Good Morning Captain.

>>73982776

It is overhyped, but great pop music.
>>
>>73983565
its about jeff mangum being in love with the reincarnations of anne frank, sexual abuse of children, mental retardation, fate, and attempting to grasp the indescribable qualities of sadness that cuts deeper than a moment or a lifetime, eternal sorrow. one example is how love transcends time, thus leaving us separated for a lifetime from who we are meant to be and be with

it is frustrating because no one seems to understand this album, not even me. the things i said about it are about as true as any other interpretation

I honestly just like the music.
That's it.
There's no secret message that can make music appealing. If anything, the message just adds onto the already appealing music.
>>
>>73982776

Never has an album felt so omnipotent, yet so powerlessly personal. One of the few pieces of music where you actually feel the weight the the person behind it.

I still think the second half is trash but google that and maybe you'll get some insight

somebody redpill me on this album without any waifushit

What did fantano say bout it?
>>
>>73983039
You were supposed to skip that one.
>>
>>73985657
Listen to the flow and lyricism, it's supposed to be abstract.

MF doom larps as a supervillan when he raps and he is really good at it. Madlib is one of the most acclaimed underground producers and is also really good at what he does. This album came together when both were at a creative peak.

It's 11/10 if you are already into underground hip hop, but if you are into the poppier sounds like (insert your favorite rapper) it takes some getting used to at first.

Contrarianism probably. Its good, but its kind of bloated. I love Ritual though.

>>73985657
Not much to help you with here. DOOM and Madlib are kinda similar but on different fields, it might be tiring that DOOM always sounds very hazed and monotone, and Madlib beats are all so lo-fi and filled with samples, but that is their strength as they can vary a lot in the field they know how to do best. They deliver a great song after a great song, change the style but don't lose any quality in the process. They can go from a more hazed and slow song to a more uptempo song, but keep it consistent as their characters are defined by the lo-fi sampled beats, and the monotone voice, but the setting changes. It really feels like it is to be taken like a villain's comic book or something, as one page might be the villain smoking L's in his dungeon and the next page he's taking over a city. The character remains, it's the setting that changes

I would love Pinata but Gibbs just doesn't have any character to him. He can rap really well but he's just not interesting enough to fill the shoes he's given.

I had to rewrite this fucking 5 times and I'm still not happy so whatever.

It's music made using non-musical sources, like someone rhythmically hitting a rock against a wall.

Musique concrete is basically a collage of samples that vary in actual musicality. An example is fitter happier off of OK Computer.

one of the first rock albums to experiment with non rock instruments

things like coke cans, bike bells, etc

I'm gonna second some of what this guy said.

I think that this album focuses on young love and the sadness that accompanies the passing of time. The arrangements are very simple actually but the songwriting is incredibly emotional.

Their other album is absolute garbage btw this was a lightning strike.

>the fact that...


It's so much unironically technically impressive/experimental stuff dome really well on its own jammed into an album paired with absurdist songwriting that it sounds terrible and like they don't know what they are doing to a casual listener.

It's ironically bad. It's the auditory equivalent of a well crafted, nuanced shitpost.

>>73982776
It's a sad album. Parts of it are about Anne Frank. Others are about all kinds of other tragedies, personal and abstract. Surreal lyrics. Cool instrumentation, French horns and shit, and a lot of interesting uses of distortion on acoustic guitars and drums in folk music.

Listen to Joy Division live at Les Bains Douches 1979—it's Unknown Pleasures minus all the shitty production and + a lot more fire. No punk prior (sans Siouxsie and the Banshees debut LP) had such a dark and isolated tone. Joy Division is a "frigid" band and that's kinda cool that they were part of what created that. But Siouxise and the Banshees did it first.

Also Spiderland is one cohesive song. The lyrics, tones, rhythms, they all culminate at Good Morning Captain's shrieking I MISS YOU. It's an album of loss described through the nervous twitches of guitars, sudden distortion blasts, etc.

The arrangements are beautiful, intricate, and painstakingly crafted with unconventional instrumentation. Brian's vocal performances are incredibly heartfelt, and the lyrics are very personal/emotional. These things combine to make an album that feels innocent, honest, and heartbreaking. It helps to know Brian's story for context, real sad stuff.

One guy just wanted to create ringtones extended into songs, and thanks to a minimal production quality, he invented a beta-form of vaporwave. Surely, it has aged baddly, but it remains important for its influence.
