"Rhythm and Blues" is itself an outdated term, anyway. Record companies thought it up as a shorthand for "black music" back in the '50s. So yes, much of modern R&B has little to do with blues, but that's a reflection on the genre's terminology, not the music itself.

If I haven't misunderstood, the "B" in "R&B" is "Bass" now.

EDIT: And the name of Justin's album is - I shit you not - FutureSex/LoveSounds. That's garbage, right there.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

I never understand this. Are you genuinely ignorant to the modern definition of 'R and B' or do you just choose to ignore it out of spite? Because either way, you lose.


I don't remember the part where I raped your dog. Please explain to me when this happened so I can rectify it. I said I don't hear much of the blues inspiration in much popular R&B these days. I did not call you a twat. So, please calm down before replying next time. K?

I have taken classes on jazz history. I am Ken Burns' bitch. When I define rythem and blues, I define it just as that.


So the answer is 'yes, I do not know the modern definition of R'n'B', that being 'Rhythm and Bass,' which just about every rap/hip hop/R AND B song has had since its inception.

Quote from: Ribbon Fat


The Justified album cover was a timely and searing indigtment of the Iraq War. Timberlake, standing in a desert (Iraq, perhaps?), gazes at us, questioning, pondering: "Was this war Justified?"

Will his new album cover be as audatious?
...

Hey, I'm not saying it's right or that I appreciate it. But the fact of the matter is, when you say 'R 'n' B' in 2006, rhythm and bass is what just about everyone will think you mean whether you do or not.

for the most part, with the friends i have, that's not really true. i understand what you're saying, and respect your input, but i just refuse to see those type of singers as "r & b" even if the letters don't mean the same anymore. i just see it as pop. meh.

they didn't teach me about r&b. i learned through a lot of different things, but it helps when you have friends who have lived in the days where r&b meant rhythm&blues.

I think my comments
Quote
(For reference, AFX claims to have no musical influences and CYHSY still (afaik) haven't admitted in any interview that the Talking Heads were an influence.)

were heavily misconstrued.

Just as note, I really respect Aphex Twin and CYHSY. But I know they're full of shit when they say they have no influences.

My point was ONLY that Timberlake (in an eternal quest to be taken seriously) went and named a bunch (seriously, a bunch) of respected and well known groups as "influences," in an attempt to make people think 'Wow! He relates to David Bowie! He must be a good pop star!'

You shouldn't have to rattle off a list of "influences" to make people appreciate your music and take you seriously as an artist. Instead just release a good fricken album and let people judge it for themselves (which is why I cited the other two bands).

I had actually never heard that either, and still associated the acronym with R. and Blues.  But, that definition makes a whole hell of a lot more sense for that current phase of music, so hencefourth I will associate it with that definition.

Side note this is the most ridiculous thread ever.  Justin Timberlake's last album is great and if you're still bitter because he was in a silly boy band at one point (which it sounds like most of the active posters of this thread are), you should sit down.

Maybe great was a poor choice of words.

All the same, it's not irony or any other equally played out word to describe when someone enjoys something outside of their subculture they find themselves in.   I don't see why I or anyone else can't like wannabe Michael Jackson pop-rock.  This smacks of freshman year of high school when no one can like anything but what their friends like.  I would hope most of us have been done with that for at least 5 or six years by now, if not eight.  Pathetic.

I live in the past.
Its rhythem and blues. I dunno what people listen to these days, so i know it bears little relation to what was originally called 'r 'n b', but thats the definiton i knew. Rock and roll before it was called rock and roll

Timbaland has produced some of the best songs in the past 5 years. It is in no way surprising, wrong or post-ironic that a lot of people who generally avoid mainstream radio music like Justin Timberlake's new stuff. All this anti-establishment b.s. going on here is so simplistic it makes me want to cry and its absurd that anyone willing to take a more complex (read: a post-high school) view of the music industry is acused of being inauthentic.

Fuck inauthenticity. Iron Maiden have probably sold more albums over their career than this guy.

It's just shallow vapid shit for 13 year old girls. It could have been recorded on a twenty quid karaoke machine in his mums basement and distributed on a cassette-only label run by a commune of anarcho-syndicalist lesbian freedom fighters who only advertise through culture-jamming graffiti and personal endorsements from Sub-Comandante Marcos and it would still be shallow vapid shit for 13 year old girls.

Justin Timberlake's comments about his new album/song
« Reply #97 on: 31 Jul 2006, 16:34 »

I generally find myself stabbing myself in the ears too much to dance.

Seriously, how can you even stand his voice? It's bearly barable in the new single with all that distortion on it. Also, where are the 'wicked beats' or whatever? I, you, or anyone could do the drums and bassline to that in Fruityloops in about half an hour, counting render time. It's commercial shite. Even dancing to it at a shite club validates its shite existence.

If you had an interest in real dance music...You'd know Foggy, Outfly, Ferry Corsten, 4 Strings, Armin Can Buuren, Iio, DJ Micro, Motorcycle, Kate Ryan, Lazard, Lost Tribe, Metric, Kira, KMC, Pepe, Divine Inspiration.

For the record:

It often gets very tiring reading comments by people so hung up on pretentions that they feel that their opinions are somehow more validated than other people's. Nothing constructive is offered; s/he simply tears it down.

If it's not your thing, that's fine. But there's no reason to flatly insult it. While some people find it vapid and simple (without stating their reasons), other people just think it's fun. Music doesn't have to be groundbreaking, it doesn't have to have hidden depths of meaning, it doesn't have to be decoded or deciphered. Sometimes it can just be fun.





[As an aside, just because you think the record is simple doesn't mean much. I could record a noise rock record or a metal album in one afternoon just as easily as I could make some beats in Fruityloops, and I'll be willing to bet that you guys would eat up my noise or metal while still shunning truly good pop music.]
