Maybe he just doesn't like rap? This is about personal tastes after all.

I don't really like rap. It's not even the rapping so much, although it can be, it's the arrangement and rhythms of the beats, the subject matter of some groups, etc. etc. I just don't find it meshes with me or appeals to me as a person. Maybe it's veiled racism or something, although tbh I doubt it.

I do quite like Goldie Lookin' Chain when I'm in the mood though, and of course Rare Form. This is probably, as I say, because I can just identify with them. Also, because Goldie Lookin' Chain are hilarious.

And that Star Wars rap, that is rather, what is it you young people say, diseasin'.

that's totally cool. i'm not going to say that everyone should listen to everything for the sake of saying "i'm open"; i just take offense when people write off an entire genre for seemingly invalid reasons. i suppose you don't even really need a valid reason to say that you dislike a genre, but it doesn't sit right with me when people don't, just because i love music, and i try to keep an open ear for everything.

i'm guilty though. i've mostly written off noise rock after listening to Wolf Eyes' Burned Mind. but, you know, if something comes along that's better, maybe i'll change my mind about the genre.

I dislike rap because it's mindlessly repetitive. Spoken vocals that don't even require pitch changes over computer-manufactured drum beats and sampling. I'm not subconsciously racist, I just don't think that constitutes quality music.

Unless you consider "Amish Paradise" and "Couch Potato" by Weird Al actual rap.

I could say this, but it would bely the amount of industrial I listen to. One could make these criticisms about Laibach, but somehow I love Laibach. It has to do, more in my mind, with the use these kind of things are put to. An american dude in trainers rapping over funky beats doesn't cut it for me, but a gravelly-voiced slovenian pretty much speaking over heavy as fuck 909 loops, simple guitar and sample choirs and military marches somehow works perfectly, even though you could never claim that it is less repetitive, less cliche, whatever.

It all comes down to dancing, I think. Hip hop is, after all, pretty much dance music, and if I can't stomp, mosh, headbang or gothdance (tm) to something, I'd rather not hit the floor. Others of course would prefer to sit it out, no matter how many times Milan says "KOMERADE, KOMM TANZ MIT MIR!"

So does she have older stuff that's better then? I just got kinda turned off by that one song... you know, the one that they played ((over and over) x 10) again on the pop radio stations. I know you shouldn't judge an artist over just one song, but... yeah.

I dislike rap because it's mindlessly repetitive. Spoken vocals that don't even require pitch changes over computer-manufactured drum beats and sampling. I'm not subconsciously racist, I just don't think that constitutes quality music.

Unless you consider "Amish Paradise" and "Couch Potato" by Weird Al actual rap.

Thing about Hendrix is, everyone talks about him when he was in the Jimi Hendrix Experience, but no one talks about him when he was Band of Gypsies and that makes me hate people who mentions him.

Thing about Led Zepplin is, everyone claims that Jimmy Page is the best guitarist ever because of the solo in Stairway to Heaven... it's an atrocity. Granted the song is good, but it's dumb hearing people talk about how great Zepplin is because of that one song or how great Jimmy Page is because of that solo. It drives me crazy.

I agree that Zeppelin has way too many bandwagon fans. One time I went up and asked one of the kids at my high school who was wearing a Led Zep shirt to name a song that wasn't 'Stairway to Heaven'. Just as an experiment. He was able to come up with 'Rock and Roll', but after that he kind of just looked at me funny. Sure, Stairway's solo is great, but what about the ones on Dazed and Confused or Heartbreaker?

On the other hand, people who say that Led Zeppelin is 'mindless testosterone-charged hippee rock' make me just as angry, because they obviously know nothing about their music. Led Zeppelin III alone has about 5 different genres crammed into it.

I totally agree. Led Zepplin III does have quite a lot of variety. I especially liked some of the more folk-driven songs. Though I do enjoy Zepplin because alot of it is based off alot of blues songs, but it still uses other different instruments like tablas and such. People who try to talk Zepplin and don't know anything about them really annoy me. Thank god for people like you, Storm Rider, who can actually appreciate Zepplin for things other than Stairway.

I wouldn't call AFI punk plus I prefer their older, pre MTV stuff. I meant things like Green Day, MCR, The Used etc. I've never seen AFI on TV here in NZ so I'm using the MTV metaphor so others could get it, if I started talking about C4 everyone would think explosives...
Besides, AFI have a whole lot more musical talent than these other bands. Try listening to Dancing Through Sunday and tell me that ain't talented.

I don't like Pavement or Sonic Youth, I can tolerate some of the better ones to come out of it, new White Stripes is quite good but shit like Blindside, The Vines, Kings Of Leon etc, just bugs me. You know, the saviours who made one album and disappeared. At least White Stripes and Franz, while mediocre, have shown some progression in their music.

They truly make me grumpy when I hear them.
Jurassic 5
Red Hot Chilli Peppers (even beyond their awful, awful songs, I'm sure I've seen threads on the loudness war on here...)
Muse
cLOUDDEAD / Subtle / Themselves (+ whatever other permutation of awful sounding hip-hop for liberal arts college radio nonsense.. give me some Ludacris or TI any day, thanks)
Gorillaz (maybe fish in a barrel, but there's something that annoys me about this lot much more than the NME tedium of the day)


Can do some wrong, actually (but I do like them all).
Mark Hollis / Talk Talk
PJ Harvey
Peaches
Autechre
Aphex Twin


Gone off them a bit or a lot.
Talib Kweli
Mos Def
Radiohead
Destiny's Child (The ubiquity of motherfucking Beyonce has really soured me against her and them.  Sick of no-room-to-breathe ululating over everything...)

Some bands who have only made one great album but I love them even so:
Hope of the States
Rage Against The Machine

Some bands who I love that no-one else seems to have heard of or like that are criminally underrated (and why):
Lucky Nine - British metal supergroup; only made one album, the second one apparently in the works, are fucking awesome, yet no-one knows them
Hundred Reasons - Three great studio albums
Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - I only have two of their three albums, but those two are brilliant

Most people think of compilations as being albums with music by many different artists, not "greatest hits" type packages of a single artist.

It's a big deal.

I don't know how you define 'most people.' But the way I see it, those albums are all 'compiled' from different releases rather than being studio albums or live albums.

If you go to wikipedia and look at artist discographies, you will find most of the above releases under 'compilations.' I'd suggest Seven Ways might not because it's a compilation of a b-side and 3/4 of two EPs.

BANDS AS GOOD AS DESTROYER




I have to say, from what little I've listened to from Destroyer, they don't impress me in the least.

Post by: TheFuriousWombat on 18 Jan 2007, 02:11
bands as good as destroyer: see [insert one of dozens, no, hundreds, of other band names here]
and change 'as good as' to 'better'

i don't really see the appeal of destroyer. care to explain the hype?
Title: Re: The List
Post by: Ernest on 18 Jan 2007, 02:16
I would guess that they appeal to the Sufjan Stevens/Bright Eyes crowd, though I could be mistaken.
Title: Re: The List
Post by: TheFuriousWombat on 18 Jan 2007, 02:20
well seeing how i've thought some of sufjan's stuff is fairly terrific, and bright eyes has some mild appeal as well, i'm not so sure if that's true. it's a different musical style. destroyer often finds itself in the sunset rubdown/frog eyes/wolf parade ect. party (swan lake helped this comparison along) but i don't see it....those 3 bands are great but i just can't get into destroyer really, even after listening to destroyer's rubbies a bunch of times....not sure why.
Title: Re: The List
Post by: Ernest on 18 Jan 2007, 02:27
Easy: Destroyer is bland and unengaging (is that a word?).  I'll admit, I was almost impressed with a Sufjan Stevens song, but not quite.

Okay, fine, Built to Spill aren't my favorite band, but I should've added a sidenote saying I like them. I just think they're a bit overrated, which is probably helped by the fact that so many people in my area are in to them (So much that they splooge. Yes, it has become masturbatory.).
Deerhoof will always have a special place in my heart, which may sound pretentious to some. And remember, I think they're awesome. Sorry I didn't state that clearly enough. Although I know I didn't say they were one of the quintessential indie bands. That's a bit, if I may,

Do Make Say Think are consistently good but I have a hard time thinking of any of their albums, taken individually, as particularly "great".  Goodbye Enemy Airship the Landlord is Dead and Winter Hymn Country Hymn Secret Hymn both come close, though.

Given that, I do think that they have something really incredible in store for the new one, based on the totally awesome title and cover artwork.

having heard it i can say you're right. it's not my favorite i don't think, but it is quite excellent. perhaps a little more accesible? there's even some vocals! part of my including them on the list stems from them being a really fantastic live band. live, the trumpet/sax/drums all become more pronounced, improvisations (minor ones, but they're there) in the aforementioned instruments exists, and often songs will be extended to their benefit. i love their album stuff but live they're even better.
